Guest Post: Sonia’s Basic Face

The gorgeous Sonia from life and style blog She’s Sonic and co-author of fashion and beauty blog Shop Me Chic has kindly put together a guest post for Absolute Amy this week. Enjoy! A xx

Sonia’s Basic Face

I keep my makeup pretty basic most days (read: I have no makeup application talent whatsoever).  Base, blush, mascara, lip gloss and I’m good to go.

By sticking to this routine, I’ve discovered some favourite products that I restock time and time again. These are the products I use every day for what I like to call my Basic Face…


For primer, foundation and concealer I use Inglot products. They are affordable and excellent quality. Well worth trying.


I am obsessed with blush. It gives your cheeks a beautiful wash of colour and makes your face come alive. MAC does the most amazing blushes in a huge array of colours. ‘Springsheen’ is my favourite, which is a light peach with gold pearl. Subtle and pretty.


Mascara seems to be the one product I chop and change with. I’m always on the hunt for the perfect product. My current favourite is Killer Curves by Australis. It’s super affordable and has the ability to make your lashes pop. My kind of mascara!!

Lip Gloss

I admit it. I’m a lip gloss addict. I can’t get enough. MAC Lipglass is the Rolls Royce of the lip gloss world. The quality, colour and staying power is second to none. My absolute favourite that I wear nearly every day is ‘Pink Lemonade’ – a peachy pink that is like my natural lip colour but better.

So there you have it – my go-to makeup look which takes me less than 10 minutes to do each morning.
