Everyday Glam with Rimmel

I’m back in the office and back to doing my soft-glam makeup everyday. It’s been so lovely getting back to normal life after the year we have all had, and doing my makeup always makes me feel better and more confident. In this post, I’m going to show you some of the little things I do on a daily basis to glam up my makeup look featuring highstreet favourite Rimmel. Are you a Rimmel makeup fan?

The first item that is a must for my daily makeup is a good foundation, such as the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation. This helps cover any imperfections I have and even out my skin tone for a good base. I like the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation because it’s a full coverage formula but it doesn’t feel heavy on my skin, it also mentions “invisible coverage” as the formula helps match your existing skin tone, which is perfect to grab as you rush to get ready in the morning. I’ve always suffered with bad skin as you probably know, so I need to trust that if I wear foundation it will cover what I need, last all day, feel good on the skin and more importantly make me feel confident, and this does the job. It’s a great highstreet pick of you don’t want to spend a fortune on a foundation.

Eyeliner is something I wear whenever I do my makeup, simply because it lines my eyes making them standout more. Now that I’m used to wearing eyeliner, if I don’t wear it I feel like my makeup look is not finished. The Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Black is my go-to eyeliner. I never ever spend a fortune on a fancy liner when I know this will do the trick and it does last all day. I also find it doesn’t move and “sink” into the lash line which is great. I line the eye just at the water line to make my eyes pop. A quick and simple daily tip to glam up your office makeup, don’t go to heavy though, save that for the evening!

A soft glam makeup wouldn’t look complete without a little Bronzer & Highlighter don’t forget. These two when used together not only add some dimension and colour to your face, but they can help contour and add back any natural features or glow you erased with the foundation you used. I used a bronzer daily on my cheekbones to make them pop and contour my face. I also add a little down each side of my nose and on my forehead. If you have an item such as my favourite Rimmel Radiance Brick which contains different shades and a highlighter, you will be good to go with everything you need on one product, great for busy mornings. With this is use the darker shades as mentioned, then I go over where I’ve used the darker shades to contour with the lighter glowy shade for a little highlight. It’s honestly so quick once you know where to do this on your face, and you can be contoured and glowing for the office in 60 seconds!

Lipstick is my final must have item, and if you’ve read previous blogs of mine you know my favourite is a strong red lip for some extra powerful glam. Red Lipstick is seen as attractive, seductive and simultaneously powerful, mainly due to the bold colour on the face that stands out, drawing attention to people as they pass you. Having attention drawn to your lips, which some people see as a seductive entity means subconsciously a red lip is seen as sexy, perfect for date nights, or those moments when you want to feel good about yourself. Throw on a red lip and you are good to go. A red lip is also perfect against your teeth, the colour palette makes your pearly whites look even whiter (it's scientific you know!) which instantly makes the wearer look better, and therefore feel better. For the office I do tone down my lipstick a notch, as I don’t want to be over the top. I use Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick in shade 01. It’s lasts about 4/5 hours before a little touch up is needed and is the perfect office red. Would you rock a red lip to the office?

So that’s my quick guide to office glam featuring some of my favourite by Rimmel, I do have more favourites but I could be hear all day talking about Rimmel items, there’s a reason they’ve been a highstreet favourite for sometime. The quality is great at such an affordable price point helping to make makeup fun and accessible for all. Are you a Rimmel fan? As I can assure you, I totally am!
