The Lazy Girls Guide To Skincare

Beauty

Today’s post is a lazy girls guide to skincare, this is a quick and simple routine and you don’t even need to be lazy to do it, maybe if your constantly on the go or you’ve had a late night and all you want to do is get into bed. 

Cleanse

Cleansing is the most important part! If you don’t take your make up off before you sleep, your skin cant breathe or repair itself so this is a very important step. To make sure all my make up is removed on a normal day when I have plenty of time and motivation to do my skincare routine, I would do a 2 step cleanse. But on a day where I want to be quick I would use a make up remover, such as The Body Shop Cleansing butter which you work into dry skin and massage all over your face and neck and it actually removes the majority of your makeup. A new cleanser in my collection is he Milky Jelly Cleanser from Glossier, this works great at removing make up when applied to a dry face so you don’t need to double cleanse if you don’t want too!

Tone

Now if your feeling lazy then you could skip toning, but I love toner as I think its a great way of just making sure your skin is clean and balancing it, to make it look and feel healthy. My go to toner at the moment for good looking skin is the Glycolic Acid Toner from The Ordinary.  This also exfoliates your skin, so its taking of any dead skin cells so your skin can regenerate and keep looking plump.

Moisturise

And finally, the next most important step after cleansing, moisturising. No matter what skin type you have, your skin needs moisture, even if your skin is oily! For a treat for my skin I would use a leave on moisture mask, this way you know your skin is still reaping the benefits of your routine even though you only spent a couple of minutes on it. My favourite leave on mask is the Vitamin E mask by Superdrug along with The Creme Shop Hyaluronic Acid Gel mask.

What does your skincare routine consist of? Do you spend hours doing it, or a couple of minutes? Let me know in the comments.

Lazy Sunday 

Beauty

  
This was all the make up I used to get ready the past Sunday. I just went for a very natural make up look as I was going to be watching films all day. 

Face I used Revlon Colour Stay foundation and applied this using a beauty sponge which are amazing! I then used the Tarte Contour stick to contour and highlight. I then set my face using Rimmel Stay Matte Poweder. To add more dimension to my face I used the Soap & Glory Bronzer, The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer highlighter and Nars Orgasm Blush. 

Eye Brows I did my every day brow routine using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip brow followed by Loreal Brow Plumper to set them. 

Eyes I first curled my lashes then applied an eyelash primer from Manna Kadar followed by Thick and Fast mascara by Soap & Glory. 

  
My friend had invited me round to her house to watch some movies but her Internet was down so I suggested we watch Pretty Little Liars. She is only at the beginning of Season 2 and I am up to date so it’s so hard not being able to tell her who A is! Although I accidentally let it slip that Ali was alive.  

   When I arrived she offered to make me sweet potato fries and they were amazing! We cooked them in a Dutch pot I think which fries them and makes them crispy.
   
 How amazing does this look?! She has a projector in her room which connects to her xBox so everything can be absolutely huge! Most the time I watch PLL on my laptop so it was amazing seeing it this big. 

 A few episodes in we decided to drive to a petrol station to get some popcorn. After about 4 or 5 episodes I decided it was time to drive home as my phone battery was dying and I still needed to use the maps to get me home.
