SUQQU Ex-28 Kinshasuna face 4

SUQQU Ex-28 Kinshasuna face 3

There’s nothing like a naturally pretty, no-makeup makeup look.

But don’t be fooled: while my goal in life is to one day have skin that naturally looks this healthy, I’m currently doing the whole fake-it-till-you-make-it thing. And since my skin has been horrid lately, I’m faking it to the nth degree. There’s a full product list below for specifics, but basically what you’re seeing is the work of primer, a tinted moisturiser, a green colour corrector, two different concealers and a powder foundation, mostly applied with an armload of tiny brushes over the course of 30+ minutes.

Just in case you missed that the first time, I’d just like to state again for the record that I did NOT wake up like this.

Aside from the eleventy-billion base products, the rest of my look was very simple. All I used was a lip liner and tinted balm, blush, mascara, brow pencil and (drumroll please) an eyeshadow palette that doubled as a highlighter. Remember how I was saying that the light colours in SUQQU Ex-28 reminded me of MAC Lightscapade? Well I put that theory to the test and can confirm that layered together, Ex-28’s yellow, blue and pink really do have a similar look – right down to that faintly orange iridescence. Such a rewarding experiment!

    I find no makeup makeup looks are some of the most difficult to do. The skin is the main focus so you have to spend so much time on it! You look stunning! Really love the fresh, simple lip color. Gorgeous!

      I hear you! The key seems to be a good foundation – something with medium to full coverage that lets you get away with just a bit of pinpoint concealing after. I’ve been loving the Make Up For Ever HD stick foundation for this effect lately!

    Really love how natural yet perfect this look is. Gonna try it for work tomorrow. You didn’t list what you used on your lips though.

      Thanks Sondra. And oops! My bad – it was Fresh Tulip, blotted down.
