Weekend Beauty Routine

Weekend beauty routine

| Weekend Beauty Routine! |

Weekends are my favourite and I like to make the most of my spare time in the mornings to pamper my skin and do my makeup. Today I'm delving into my makeup and skincare drawers and sharing my favourite products to use on weekend mornings.

Skincare:
I'm a morning shower person no matter what day of the week it is, as I find it refreshing and it wakes me up. My after-shower essential is an indulgent body moisturiser and a budget find that's been a firm favourite since last summer is the Garnier Ultimate Blends Body Soothing Hydrating Lotion. Despite the budget price tag, it feels luxurious, smells delicious, is kind to my sensitive skin and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.

My facial skincare staples at the moment are from one of my favourite skincare brands, La Roche Posay. I always have their Effaclar Duo + in my skincare routine as it's the only thing that helps reduce the number of spots I get - I even have a backup of it in my skincare drawer, that's how much I love it! I'm also a big fan of their Toleriane Ultra moisturiser - It's a simple fuss-free moisturiser that hydrates my dry parched skin and the formula is quite cooling and soothing too so it's ideal for sensitive skin. 

Makeup:
I've been opting for more minimal makeup recently and for my weekend base, I like to use a luxury product and my Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation is the perfect pick! A lightweight, luminous offering that provides a fresh, natural makeup look. 

Another Charlotte Tilbury favourite is the Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette which houses the most beautiful bronzer and highlighter ever. Both powders look incredible on the skin and they're ideal for my everyday makeup bag.

Recently, I repurchased my all-time favourite concealer after not having it in my makeup routine for a few months - Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer - and I managed to get a really good deal on it as it was reduced from €23 down to €16! The creamy formula suits my dry skin, it can be used for both concealing spots and under the eyes and it lasts well throughout the day on me.

I've been testing out a couple of new blushes recently and one that has already made it to my favourites list is the Fenty Beauty Match Stix in Yacht Life. It's a gorgeous pink shade with a golden sheen and it makes my skin look so healthy! I'm loving it and I definitely want to add some more cream or liquid blushes to my collection! 

For the eyes, I'll be reaching for my Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise in Jean - a gorgeous champagne cream eyeshadow! It looks beautiful on its own all over the lid for minimal makeup days and the simple eye look provides a fresh healthy look to my appearance.

And lastly on my makeup menu is the lip products and I'm loving the Luna Lip Gloss in Sapphire at the moment. The formula is incredible - pigmented, creamy and non-sticky! - and this particular shade is a wearable pinky nude. If I want something a little bit longer-lasting then I'll opt for my Clinique Pop Matte Lipstick in Peony Pop

Hair & Fragrance:
On the weekends, I like messy textured hair so I'll be applying a little bit of my Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray to my hair for natural tousled locks. 

My final weekend beauty ritual is perfume and I've been saving my Jo Malone Red Roses fragrance for weekend use only. This gorgeous rose scent is getting me excited for the Spring months ahead! 


What are your weekend beauty essentials?

Love,
