Brighten Up A Basic Look

If I’m going out but in a bit of a hurry (or just can’t be bothered), I’ll do super easy makeup and pair it with a bright lip. My three main things I make sure  I do are:
1. Go a little heavier than normal on the bronzer
2. Go for a bright lip
3. Make sure your eyes are poppin!

Follow these three “rules” and you’ll be feeling great and looking great!



Products I Use:
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer – I typically just brighten up my under eyes, my chin and the center of my forehead. I also conceal any big spots I may have.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder – I swish this all my face, really focusing on the areas I concealed and where I get oily quickly (which is my T-Zone).

Rimmel Sunshimmer Maxi Bronzer – You know this one, it’s the only bronzer I use atm! lol I pop it on my cheeks, my forehead, jawline and put whatever is left on my brush swiped over my eye lids.

NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder – Again.. another holy grail of mine, and this is pretty self-explanatory. I fill in & shape my brows. I usually go for the darker shade of the two in the brunette palette.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – I have tried many mascaras over the past few years, and I keep finding myself purchasing this one again and again. It separates your lashes beautifully, and gives them sooo much length. I just love it 🙂

NYX Matte Lipstick – You can not fail with a NYX lip product. Whether it’s a lipstick, liquid lipstick, lip gloss, they’re all amazing in my opinion, and their colour selection is enough but not too much (know what I mean?!) I’m wearing Shocking Pink today!


Main thing to nailing this look, is just to have fun with it. You’ll soon figure out which bright colours suit you and you’ll feel awesome when you wear it 🙂

Love, Courtney
