Exam Makeup...Seriously?

This may be sort of a weird thing to write about, but I just had an early morning midterm (my last one for all of eternity I hope!) and although makeup should be the last thing on your mind when you've got a test to write, I find that despite the lack of sleep, I still can't walk out the door actually looking like that's the case! 

There are a few essentials that I can't be without. I obviously don't focus too much on eye makeup because, let's face it, most of the time no one will even see your eyes since they'll be looking down at the exam paper!

So, the first thing I use is my Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Foundation because it's extremely quick to dust on my face and also acts as a concealer for my inevitable under eye circles.

Next, I quickly line my upper lash line and waterline with either a brown or light black eyeliner. I would normally use a jet black eyeliner, but on an exam day I feel like it's just too much since the rest of my makeup is so light. For my midterm, I just so happened to use my Pur Minerals Eye Defining Pencil in Black Amethyst.

I follow the eyeliner with my new favourite: Lancome's Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara which just makes me feel and look more awake because I'm probably not...

Then, I give my cheeks some colour with Physician's Formula Happy Booster Blush which also happen to have "Happy Skin" and "Euphoryl", which are said to be natural plant extracts that make you feel happy because they mimic the effects of endorphins.

Finally, I finish off with Lise Watier's Spa Fondant in Nude Tendresse which is nice and neutral, smells like coffee with cream and feels just as smooth on my lips.

Once I have these 5 things on my face, I look ready to rock so I can only hope that my brain feels the same way! 


  1. Mascara and liner is a pretty good basic eye makeup! Just enough to wake up your look I guess and get you ready for that exam! :) Hope it went well for you!

    1. I got my degree so yes, I did alright! :)
