If you have seen my Sunday post, you already know that me and my better half moved flats which was crazy.
Basically, I was really stressed, we had to wake up early, work all day and go to bed pretty late. That caused even darker under eye circles, dull skin and me feeling tired and scared of looking myself in the mirror (I’m usually scared but this time was even worse!). This whole thing continued for about two weeks. I don’t have to say that I didn’t have any time or will to put makeup on in the early mornings but I didn’t want my new neighbours to think a guy accompanied by a zombie is moving in near them. I had to do at least something minimal to bring back the colour on my face.
This is probably the quickest ”routine” with the tiniest number of products involved. I used only 3 items after cleansing and moisturising my face!
The first one was the Ultra Matte Fluid by L’Occitane which I’ve mentioned thousands of times before. There is nothing better than this if you have oily or combination skin and you don’t want to blot every 30 minutes. It’s a wonderful base that keeps you shine-free.
On top I used only concealer and no foundation, it instantly made me look more awake and helped me hiding what had to be hidden. The one at the moment is the Rimmel Wake me up concealer.
The last product I used was the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder because it’s just the best and you can see my review on it here. It sets my concealer, doesn’t make my face look cakey, gives me healthy look and decent coverage which kind of replaces tinted moisturiser or BB/CC cream.
That’s all I used during our moving and I have to say that it wasn’t so bad although including mascara would have been much better. Of course, when I had the chance, I was applying lip balm.
Have you had such stressful time and what products you relied on?
