This is a post about my day to day, pretty boring make up routine. It changes often as i go though phases of which blush, mascara and lippy and obviously old products have to make way for new exciting shades.
Its pretty simple and dull haha!!! obviously when i'm going out or have more time then it differs and more colour is introduced but this is like day to day what i wear for work face :)
Benefit Porefessional primer - i apply this first and find it really helps my make up to stay in place!!!
Barbara Daly concealer in 'light' - this is actually really thick and super creamy! I picked it up in my local Tesco when i was in desperate need of a concealer and am very impressed!! I apply this to any blemishes and imperfections, my nose as i have large pores and then under my eyes if im looking tired.
Estee Lauder double wear foundation - Yes it had a hefty price tag but it it 100% worth it. I have never found a foundation as good as this and i doubt that i ever will. I honestly have nothing but good things to say about it and i am so glad i made the jump from high street foundations to this baby!!! I apply this with my MAC foundation brush and then help to buff it in with my fingers for a more natural flawless finish.
Rimmel stay matte powder in translucent - Just a basic powder to help set my make up... i think powder really makes such a difference and helps to stop concealer and foundation from looking oily and sliding off your face!!! This gets applied after my foundation.
Soap and glory highlighting powder - I've only just started using highlighter but im already a big fan of what this adds to your face. Makes you look more alive and all dewy. I apply this after my powder and before my blush to my cheekbones.
ELF blush in peechy keen
Read my precious blog about this blusher as i have banged on about it quite enough haha! This is the last step for the face, i apply to the apples of my cheeks for a nice healthy glow.
Rimmel eye brow pencil - Eyebrows are my obsession and i spend a good 5 mins of my morning routine on them. At the moment i just use pencils but im waiting for my ELF eyebrow kit to arrive so we will see how i get on with that.
Soap and Glory supercat black liquid eyeliner - I love liquid eyeliner and use it daily. I just sweep it across my top lids then flick it out slightly. I feel naked if i dont have it on!!! Im not really a fan of eye shadows unless im going out really so day to day i just stick to lashings of the blackest of black eyeliner!
YSL faux cils mascara in black - Mascara is a must!!!! I curl my eye lashes first and then add a few layers of mascara. I recently bought this one from Buyapower on a bit of a random splurge and im loving it so far. A full review of it will follow soon!
Lush bubblegum lip scrub - this smells and tastes delicious. I rub a little bit of this on before putting anything else on my lips and it gets rid of all the dead chapped skin and leaves your lips soft and smooth!!!
Various lip balms - The one pictured is a Primark one, but it can range from Vasaline to body shop lip butters and anything inbetween. I put this on after the scrub and let it sink in for a few minutes.
MAC lipstick in Snob - I love this shade!!! I purchased it in about November and have reached for it about 5 out of 7 days a week since then!!!! On me its a lovely nudey subtle creamy pink, i've seem some peoples posts where it seems very blue but i don't find that on myself?!? how odd.
ELF blush brush:
I use this brush for my highlighter and blush.
I use this brush for my powder and to blend.
I use this for my foundation and sometimes for my concealer.
I don't use a lip brush.. i just don't get along with them. I prefer to use from the tube or pat it on with my finger.
As i said i change my products quite regularly... but the type of products i use always stays the same its just the brand and shades which i change between :)
