Earlier this week, I confessed that I tend to wander around on off days without makeup. But you know, in this age of selfies and easy access to high quality cameras in mobile phones, sometimes that just isn’t a good idea. Especially more so if you’re with friends and then someone whips out their swanky new phone and says “Hey guys, let’s take a groupfie! I want to share it on Instagram!” and before you can unfurrow your brow and wonder “What on earth is a groupfie?!” the photo is taken and uploaded to Instagram and oh dear, you look all washed out and no amount of filters will help you!
If I know I’ll be out with company, I sometimes put on some very simple makeup, just to even out skin tone and define features. Sometimes, this forms the basis of a casual workday face too. And for this purpose, I often turn to some easy tools from Laura Mercier which aren’t only easy, they’re importantly quick to assemble! Let me show you what I use to get a selfie-ready face (psst! There’s a very easy Instagram contest at the end of the post to enter to win their famed tinted moisturiser for a year!)
