I used to hide behind makeup and feel like a completely different person if I left the house without it, as if I should’ve felt apologetic to the people who saw me in my natural state, or even carry round a photo of me with makeup on to show what I really looked like. But this past year I’ve become a lot more comfortable in my own skin and barely wear any make up, but if I do I tend go for a natural look to enhance my features rather than caking it all on.

I love makeup and I always will, but I feel like we have been conditioned to mask ourselves with it rather than using to emphasise our beauty. Now, I’m not judging anyone because I am the first to like a #browsonfleek Instagram picture and I really do appreciate a well made up face (or beat as they say on the gram), but I just can’t commit to that everyday!

These six products are my staples for creating a quick and, if I dare say so myself, stunning natural look:

  1. Benefit Speed Brow
  2. Mac Mineralize Skinfinish
  3. Benefit They’re Real Mascara
  4. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer SPF 20
  5. Bare Minerals Original Foundation
  6. Clarins Lip Perfecter in Rosewood Shimmer
