With my skin finally in-check, I have found myself wearing less and less makeup. While I enjoy my newfound skin freedom and bare-faced confidence, I don’t enjoy the look of bare lashes. As a natural blonde, I have super light-haired eyelashes so without mascara, they easily can get lost with the rest of my facial features. When I heard about the new Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara that claims to tint your lashes over time with results visible in as little as two weeks, I knew I had to give it a try.
To get an idea of what I started with, here is a before picture of my lashes from two weeks ago.
See how blonde they are?! With a full face of makeup, they definitely look a little out of place.
And, here’s how I looked after the first application of Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara (I chose the shade Exreme Black). While I haven’t found the mascara to be the most voluminous formula that I’ve ever used, I do like the length and subtle lift that it gives my lashes.
Fast forward two weeks later to present day, and here are what my bare lashes look like now!
While it isn’t a drastic change (and, because of lighting, is much more noticeable in person than in photos), my lashes are a noticeable one to two shades darker than where I started. Now, especially on days that I’m makeup-free, all I have to do is curl my lashes for an extra pop of volume and I can be out the door feeling confident that my natural lashes are on display.
On days that I do choose to wear makeup, I have been going for the summer “no makeup” makeup look to keep from appearing too overdone. For my face, a lightweight sheer liquid foundation, a peachy blush and bronze-y highlight have been my go-to products.
For the eyes, I like to apply a light brown or taupe eye shadow with a fluffy brush to the crease of my lids. Since I have hooded eyes, this helps contour my lids and have them stand out more.
Then, I apply a thin line of liquid liner – right now, I’m loving Rimmel Colour Precise Eyeliner in Black – to the outer part of my eye to thicken up the lash line.
I also like to apply a flesh-tone pencil liner to my inner bottom waterline to open up my eyes and take away any redness. My holy grail product for this is Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl Kajal Waterproof in Nude – I have used this product for years, and it never fails.
As a final step, I apply a couple coats of Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara.
And, that completes my summer “no makeup” makeup look! It’s easy and quick and gives you the put-together look without feeling like you have a ton of products on your face.
