Eye Makeup only Challenge Day 1

The Deciem Chatroom on Instagram announced a challenge at the weekend to wear just eye makeup for five days! The point being allowing your skin to be seen! We are all so hooked on skincare and trying to make our skin look and feel better but many of us still hide it behind layers of makeup. I am not saying there’s anything wrong with that, one of the reasons that I love what I do as a job being a Makeup Artist is what makeup can do not only in how you look but also in how you feel. Even the smallest amount of makeup can give you confidence. I also think that your skin should be given a break from makeup too, and when it is worn, proper makeup removal is essential to prevent the skin from clogging up, breaking out, drying out etc.

Anyway! Back to the challenge! I thought I would blog about the challenge from a skincare perspective too and not only show you what look I’ve worn that day but also my AM and PM skincare routine. If you want to see timelapse videos of me getting ready, check out my Facebook page Beauty and The Ballroom or on my Insta-stories Beauty and The Ballroom.
