The "I feel like rubbish" face

I always think there are two different types of makeup wearing ill people. There are the ones who can't be bothered and there are the ones that wear makeup in an attempt to feel a little more human. I an unfortunately the latter, sometimes I wish I wasn't bothered but I hate walking past the mirror and catching a glimpse of my sleep deprived grey complexion. Most will think me completely insane but thats just something I've got to roll with! 

Face wise I like to go for a fairly light but dewy base, Bourjois Healthy mix serum is pretty much perfect for the job as it has just enough coverage to tone down the gray. I then use a light concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes for this I really like the Maybelline fit me concealer. To finish of my face I added a little colour in with the Mac powder blush in Fleur power 

For my brows I used my new L'oreal Brow artist in Medium/dark as it is just so easy and leaves a very natural just a little more polished brow. For my eyes I used the Mac Bare study paint pot to brighten up my eyes and then I popped a couple of coats of the Gosh amazing length and build mascara on my top and bottom lashes. 

To finish everything off I reached for my favourite no fuss lip product which is the Clarins instant light natural lip perfector in 01. I love this when I'm not feeling so good as my lips get really dry and this is lovely and hydrating. 


  1. I am the latter also, work seem to know when I am ill as I actually wear more than usual.
    I love the colour of the blush xxx

  4. I switch, to be honest... Sometimes when I'm not feeling well, I really really cannot be bothered to put on makeup. Other times, like you, I try to make myself feel better by applying some makeup. Definitely along the same lines: nothing too heavy, just some nice touches. The Clarins Lip Perfector I think is especially perfect.

  6. Whenever my face feels like rubbish, which is quite often, I'll always draw focus to my brows and hope it distracts from my face!
