We’ve all been there. Feeling super lazy. Needing to leave the house, and wanting to look a tad respectable. A few quick make-up essentials will do the trick, and you’ll be ready to roll. Or, perhaps you know the quintessential ‘lazy girl’. She gives herself the minimum amount of time to get ready each morning (after hitting the snooze button multiple times), and just needs a few basics to create a natural make-up look, and she’s out the door.
The ‘Lazy Girl Make-up Essentials’ are those make-up products that are easy to apply (due to time constraints), have multiple uses (highlighter that doubles as an eyeshadow for example), and are reliable and long wearing (tried and tested).
We’ve got a few products in our cruelty-free make-up collection that are perfect for those lazy girl make-up moments. We’ve compiled the below list to help you create a quick natural make-up look in under 10 minutes, or if you’re really rushed in under five minutes!
Flawless Concealer - This long wearing, stick concealer camouflages dark circles, imperfections and pigmentation. It’s very easy to use as it can be blended into the skin with your fingertips or with a Concealer Brush, until you’ve achieved the coverage you want. Like all Nude by Nature products the Flawless Concealer is formulated with 100% natural ingredients including Bamboo Powder, Quandong and the antioxidant rich Australian native Kakadu Plum.
Natural Mineral Cover Foundation - One of Australia’s favourite foundations, Natural Mineral Cover is one of the original core products launched by Nude by Nature nearly 10 years ago. It’s a loose mineral powder foundation with SPF 15, that can be built from sheer to full coverage, depending on the look you’re creating. It’s composed of active natural ingredients, including skin nourishing Jojoba Esters and Kaolin Clay that soothes and absorbs excess oil. It feels great on the skin, and is easy to apply.
Touch of Glow Highlight Stick - We have a couple of different contour and highlight products at Nude by Nature, and the Touch of Glow Highlight Stick ticks all the boxes as being an essential for a lazy girl make-up look. Not only is it multipurpose, it’s also very easy to use, and comes in three shades (01 Champagne, 02 Rose, 03 Bronze). It’s a versatile glide-on cream-to-powder highlight stick that creates points of light, intense colour and luminous sheen.
Natural Illusion Pressed Eyeshadow & Allure Defining Mascara - Either of these products can be used alone to create definition for the eyes, or of course together will give a hint of colour and volume. The Natural Illusion Pressed Eyeshadow is a velvety pressed eyeshadow providing smooth, even application and is available in 12 shades. It comes with a mirror compact making application easy. You may wish to use it alone for a wash of colour on the eye, or you can smudge it along the lash line for a more smoky look. The Allure Defining Mascara has a unique, flexible brush and buildable formula, giving intensified, lengthened and separated lashes in an instant. The mascara is enriched with Pro Vitamin B5 to condition the lashes over time.
Moisture Infusion Lipgloss - This lipgloss is one of our brand new 100% Natural Lip Collection. The lip collection is free from carmine, petroleum waxes, parabens, silicones, coal tar dyes, or any synthetics. Our lip collection is enriched with 100% natural ingredients including Kakadu Plum, Shea Butter and Tangerine Oil. The Moisture Infusion Lipgloss enhances the lips with vibrant, glossy colour and weightless shine. It has a non-sticky feel, easy to use applicator and comes in 10 shades.
Another great tip is to already have a few good quality make-up brushes at home. If you’ve got the perfect tools at the ready, then creating a quick, flawless make-up look is already off to a flying start. Our make-up brushes are made of ultra-soft high-quality synthetic fibres, and as Nude by Nature is a cruelty-free brand, so are our brushes.
Essential Collection Brush Set: This is the perfect option (& gift) for a no-fuss, low maintenance person. The Essential Collection Brush Set includes 7 versatile rose gold make-up brushes and comes in a faux leather zip case. Even better the brushes are discreetly labelled to assist with selection, making application super easy.
