After this cool and original title ( I know 😌 🌚 ) let's talk about the real deal.
No more partying, going out and shopping trips for me guys. Not until I finish what's left of this semester. Time flies they say...well, it's true. I still can believe my first year of UNI is almost over. I feel like I haven't done everything I wanted to at all. Apart from my five courses, I've been working on other projects but I thought I would have more time to do other things. I think next year I'm taking more German lessons, maybe it's fun. Who knows...
The aim of this post is basically for you to get to know how I do my makeup when I'm either revising for my finals or taking them. The most important thing is for me to be comfy as well as presentable. I do care about my image and sometimes I think dressing up a little bit during this period helps me stay motivated and focused at the same time. I do lose a little bit of time- max 10 minutes- to freshen up but I try not to stay glued to my notes every single hour of the day. I used to be that kind of person who didn't sleep because I was afraid I would forget something very important and I'm not like that anymore. I still go to bed quite late but my preoccupation levels have decreased a little bit. I changed my modus operandi when I started UNI as I was way too obsessed with studying and I didn't even make time for my friends or family.
Forget about that big ramble and let's get the party started!
Moisturiser The one thing I use the most during this couple of weeks is my moisturiser. I get very stressed out because of exams, marks and papers - lots of spots and dry lips - so this product is the one thing that helps me take care of my skin under the circumstances.
Powder Foundation The thing with liquid foundation is that you need to know how to wear it. I mean, even though I wear makeup everyday, I still feel my foundation, mascara, eyeshadow, etc. so it is quite uncomfortable to wear loads of product on my face when the only thing I need to worry about is not forgetting everything I need to write down on my paper exam. That's why I tend to use powder foundation during my finals. It's easy to wear and I feel like I'm not wearing any makeup. I usually apply a light coat of Givenchy powder foundation in a very light shadow, contour a little bit my T - Zone and add dusts of blusher on my cheeks .
Eyeshadow & Mascara I like to stay basic and use a neutral eyeshadow. Applying a little bit of a nude shadow and doing eye contour doesn't take up much time. For mascara I either go for Too Faced Better Than Sex or Maybelline Lash Sensational.
Lips I'm always wearing either the Avène Lip Balm with Cold Cream or Givenchy Mister Gentlebalm Lip Balm. The first one is really good for dry lips but I reckon if you want your lips to look alive the Givenchy one is perfect as it's in a pinky nude shade.
