I'm sure I can't be the only one out there that gets completely obliterated by hay fever around this time of the year and for some reason it's been getting to me really badly over the last 2 weeks (scratchy eyes, sneezing.. the works! Sexaayy!). On the bright side, it's forced me to switch up my makeup routine because liquid liner and hay fever don't make for a long lasting look!
So take a little look see at the face I've been sporting literally everyday over the past 2 weeks!
Obviously, minimal makeup is your best friend when it comes to hay fever season, so I've said 'SEEYUH!' to my liquid liner (it had to be pried out of my hands) and 'HEYYUHH!' to a more subtle eye makeup look! I've stuck mainly to two of my favourite shadows and tried to stay as far away as I can from anything that can move about or run throughout the day! So lashings of mascara and a good kohl eye pencil were the way forward!
I've actually surprised myself and become a big fan of this bronzy/minimal eye makeup!
Of course, because I've been opting for a more minimal eye makeup look than I'm used to, I obviously had to do something to make my pout pop! I have to put my hands up and admit that I didn't think I'd be a huge fan of a brown lip on myself (Kylie Jenner holds the gold in that department), but I actually really love it. At first I used an old, never used NYC brown lipliner that I found lying about my makeup stash - but last week I invested in a little gem I've been lusting over for a lifetime - MAC's 'Spice' Lip Liner. Yup! Heaven in liner form!
And that's about it guys and gals!
Here's everything I used if you want to re-create this look:

Foundation | Perfection Lumiere Velvet (Beige 10) - Chanel
Powder | Loose Translucent Setting Powder - Callanberry & FIT me! Pressed Powder (Classic Ivory) - Maybelline

How do you feel about this more minimal makeup look?
Do you feel as if your liquid liner is another limb? Haha.
