Effortless Makeup

I think I speak for everyone when I say, nothing is better than makeup you just don't need to spend hours on in the morning. I mean don't get me wrong, I love playing with makeup but at 8am in the morning before work, absolutely not. Thankfully there are always a couple of products that are just so effortless to use, blend and apply.

The Colourpop Supershock Shadows are a product that I use on such a daily basis mainly because of how easy they are. Creamy, buttery, flawless and bouncy is exactly how I would describe these shadows. The pigmentation is out of this world whether it be their matte or shimmer shades meaning you don't need to spend ages packing on the product. What I love about these as well is that the best way to apply them is with your fingers, meaning no makeup brush cleaning, fab if you ask me!

The L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Superstar Eyeliner  changed the eyeliner game for me. Without sounding dramatic, I am literally the worst when it comes to eyeliner. I could never get it straight and it would always come out far too thick and although I was terrified of the thought of using a felt tip liner, this is honestly so incredibly easy to use. Although you can't obviously tightline with this eyeliner formula (that is unless you want to get eyeliner melting into your eye) it's perfect for above the lashes. 

Next are two KIKO products. Firstly, the KIKO Cream Eyeshadow 01  has sort of replaced my love the Mabelline Colour Tattoos. This shade makes for a perfect base if you're going for either a pink or shimmery champagne eyeshadow look. Although the size of the pot does aggrevate me (because it is so small you have to use your little finger) the formula is amazing and makes for such a quick easy eye look. Another product which I've been falling back in love with are my KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks. I have these in quite a few shades and they never cease to amaze me. There is an incredible range of shades ranging from Lilac to Golden Chocolate and they are so opaque you don't need to layer at all. They are also so easy to blend, whilst also don't budge either one a night out. 

Finally I can't not talk about the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick 'Pillow Talk'. Now usually I wouldn't put a matte lipstick in an 'effortless post' but Pillow Talk is such an exception. I have never worn a more comfortable matte lipstick in my life, it is so creamy and just doesn't make you feel as if you're wearing lipstick at all. 

Let me know in the comments above what some products you consider effortless products and that I should incorporate into my daily routine.
