If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll probably know that I’m the kind of girl that doesn’t usually wear a lot of makeup day-to-day. Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time on my makeup look when I’m going out for the evening, but I just don’t have the time or motivation to do so on a normal working day.
Lately, however, I’ve been playing around with a few products that I can apply quickly in the morning to just cover up any imperfections or uneven skintone, without having to sit down and apply a full-blown makeup look. I’ve already raved about Madara’s City CC Cream on my blog which I now use almost every day, however I’ve recently been experimenting with some of Ere Perez‘s gorgeous makeup products (which I picked up from LoveLula) in order to perfect my “no makeup” look:
Ere Perez Arnica Concealer*
After applying my CC Cream, I use this concealer in the shade ‘Latte’ to cover up any areas that need a little extra attention, such as under eyes, red cheeks and blemishes. It even contains Arnica which is both antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, helping to heal blemishes while you’re wearing it!
Having not used a cream concealer since trying the RMS “Un” Cover-up concealer when I very first switched to green beauty, I was unsure how compatible this would be with my skin. However, I’ve found it works really well and blends nicely into my skin, especially on top of a CC Cream. I tend to apply it with my fingers, although you can also use a concealer brush.
I do find that – if I ever need to re-apply later in the day (for example if I’m going out straight after work) – it doesn’t blend quite as well and can look a bit dry; it definitely works best on freshly cleansed and moisturised skin.

Ere Perez Versatile Vanilla Highlighter*
After applying concealer, I use this highlighter in the shade ‘Falling Star’ on my cheekbones, browbones, cupid’s bow and down the length of my nose.
I love the effect that this product gives and that it is so buildable; you can use as much or as little as you like depending on your look or mood and it is really easy to blend. I also really love the vanilla-y smell; Vanilla has anti-inflammatory properties so as well as adding a lovely scent, it also helps to soothe and calm the skin.

Ere Perez Avocado Waterproof Mascara
Finally, I apply a swipe of this waterproof mascara in black to complete my “no-makeup” look! It contains Avocado and Mamey oils that help to nourish and fortify lashes, and gives the level of coverage I personally like in a mascara; not too heavy but also very lengthening.
This is the only fully waterproof clean mascara I have ever used and I have to say, it does work! I even put it to the test last week in the swimming pool, steam room and sauna, where it held up incredibly well!

Here’s the finished look! As you can see, it’s very natural but just gives my skin a fresh and clear look… with a little bit of a glow! I love the way these products work together and how quick and easy it is to achieve this look.
