My Lazy Day Face

We all have those days.
Those days where you would much rather stay in your puppy-themed pj's, cuddled up watching Teen Wolf re-runs (or any applicable TV show. The Originals, Awkward or Once Upon a Time are also personal favourites). But alas, we have to venture outside our  humble room into the wilderness of our town. Our town that probably has human beings that we'd rather not bump into looking like a drowned hamster and closer to Keira Knightly running errands (a girl can hope, right?)
So, here is the make-up I'd use to mimic the appearance of more than 3 hours sleep and hopefully prevent scaring any villagers. 

 As you'll see as we go along, all these products are fairly cheap, as on 'I cannot be bothered' days I don't really want to be using all my rather expensive, 'best' make-up. 
This is the product just about everyone and there mother raves about. The Collection Lasting Perfection, in my opinion, is ideal for lazy days. It's very full coverage, this is good because I don't really want to wear a foundation. On lazy days the last thing I want to be doing is hauling foundation off later on, so keep it simple with just minimal concealer.
I dab this under the eyes and on any problem areas.
 This is the Accessorize blush in the shade Scandal and possibly one of my all time favourite blushes. It doubles up as a highlighter which adds a nice rosy glow on our face. I like to think it gives a nice healthy illusion, as if we hadn't spent the whole night drink hot chocolate and watching Netflix (#summer)
 Now for eyes, literally all I'm going to do is apply this mascara to my top and bottom lashes as applicable. Honestly, this is by far not my favourite mascara, and that's why Maybelline Big Eyes has resorted to lazy days. I also use the hazulnutty colour (most worn colour in the top picture) to fill in my eye brows, from the MUA Matte Palette.
Finally, I moisturise the lips with a little Vaseline. You can use any lip balm you really want to but Vaseline is cheap and leaves a nice natural shine. 
The Lipstick is Midnight Mauve from Maxfactor. It's a semi-sheer, purply-pink-y colour that kind of upgrades your simple face with out screaming I LOVE LIPSTICK AND WANT TO LOOK EDGY. 
Although we all do love lipstick.
Today is just not a statement lip day.
Sorry about that! 

What are your lazy day make-up essentials?
