Soft smokey eye makeup look is my everyday go-to makeup. It is very easy and quick to achieve – does not take too much time in the mornings. Quick and effortless makeup is something I am used to wearing every day, because of my work’s specifics. Being a blogger requires to always look fresh and polished. In addition, it is important to be able to have your makeup done at the beginning of the day – to be ready for any meetings or events that may arise during the day. I like experimenting with mineral makeup lately. It keeps up with my busy life, allowing me to go through the day without having to stop to touch it up. Sometimes I even forget I am wearing makeup.
Makeup is an extension of your skincare regimen, so it’s important to select skin-healthy makeup that covers, corrects and protects all while making you look and feel your best. Fair to say that some makeup products might feel a bit too heavy or dry if I need to wear them all day long. Therefore, quite often I choose lightweight mineral makeup products. Mineral makeup stands apart from traditional cosmetics because these harsh ingredients are not found in mineral makeup formulas. The use of mineral makeup can help users avoid acne, rosacea, dry skin and the settling of products in pores and fine lines. Also, with a more natural product like mineral makeup, you’re avoiding artificial dyes and fragrances which can inflame the skin and cause allergic reactions. If you’re ever in doubt, always read your ingredient labels!
The Lin&Lo range – that I used today for my soft smokey eye makeup look – is free from everything that causes damage to your skin. So say goodbye to synthetic preservatives, chemical dyes, artificial fragrances and other harmful ingredients. Let your skin breathe, enjoy the vitamins and antioxidants and get a flawless and healthy look, thanks to the easy to blend pure pigments contained in the products.
Start With a Perfect Makeup Base
For your makeup to stay all day, start with the base. Primer preps your skin for the perfect foundation application by filling in fine lines and smoothing pores, and it also keeps your makeup looking fresh all day. Consider it the key to making your skin makeup-ready.
