Simple Make-up, Hair and Outfit for a Casual Day

Hey guys!

Originally I was going to title this as ‘lazy day hair, make-up and outfit’ but realistically if I know that I’m going to be at home all day I’ll be wearing no makeup and trackies! But this is something you could do if you know you’re not going to be doing much but still want to look like you made an effort.


For my face makeup, I started with The Body Shop Tea Tree BB Cream. (check out my top 5 BB creams!) This is great because it gives good coverage plus it’s actually doing good things for my skin. Then I used NYC’S Colour Wheel in Rose Glow on my cheeks to give a bit more colour to my face without having to do the whole contour, highlight, blush thing. I blended everything in using the No 7 powder in Fair. I used Real Techniques brushes to apply all these products because, well they’re just the best!

On my eyes I went for the lightest shade in the Collection Eyes Uncovered Nude Palette under my brow bone and inner corner of my eyes. Then I applied the goldy grey shade from the Revlon Colorstay palette on my lids. To finish off my eyes I used the Lancome Grandoise mascara, which is my current fave. To complete the whole look I put some Victoria’s Secret Beauty Crush lipgloss on my lips. I rarely use lipgloss but my sister brought me this back from America so I decided to try it out. It's vanilla flavoured so what's not to love!


This is an extremely easy hair style but it still kinda looks like you made an effort! All I did was twist two pieces of hair from the front of my head and pin them on either side. And voila, appropriate hair for leaving the house!


My idea of comfy is tracksuit pants and a hoodie, but the next best thing has got to be leggings. Black leggings work every time. Mine are from Forever 21, I like their leggings because they’re quite thick. I really don’t like leggings that make you feel like everyone can see your underwear! My top is a simple stretchy top from Penneys/Primark. I’m quite into monochrome lately and I think the black and white stripes make the outfit that tiny bit more dressy. On top I threw on this oversized shirt which I bought in a market in Dublin. I love this shirt; it’s thick, warm and it makes any outfit instantly cooler. On me foots I’m wearing my Adidias Superstars which have been my go-to shoes ever since I got them for Christmas. Definitely my new favourite footwear!

Well, that's it from me for now. Until next time!

  1. I love that you included your sneakers in this post. I absolutely adore them. Sometimes I just use concealer under my eyes; mascara; kajal and a lip stain and I am out the door. I like your hair twist, it is so effortless and a change from the usual messy bun look which people usually when they in a hurry. xx
