My Current Everyday Makeup Routine

Wednesday, 16 September 2015

Applying my makeup in the morning is
my favourite time of the day - I find it so
therapeutic - and here are the products that
have been living on my face recently.......

Everyday makeup routine


For my base I always start off with my favourite foundation: Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat. It has a medium but buildable coverage which I love because I can apply a light layer for everyday wear and achieve the 'no makeup' makeup look but I can also build it up to provide more coverage for my outfit shoots. It photographs well and it also provides a lovely glow to the skin. Next, I apply my concealer. I've been loving the Nars Radiant Creamy concealer paired with the 17 Stay Time concealer. I usually set my base with a powder but I just ran out of my loyal Rimmel Stay Matte powder and the one I'm currently using isn't very good - it does an alright job but it's not worth mentioning on my blog.

I'm not a huge contouring fan and most of the time I leave this step out of my daily makeup routine but recently I've been loving the L'oreal Glam Bronze. This is the perfect contouring shade for me and it has a smooth texture which is easy to blend. For my cheeks I always apply Benefit Dandelion (review). It's a gorgeous light soft pink shade with a bit of shimmer running through it. It provides a beautiful natural glow to the skin and it makes me look perkier and healthier - a great one for early mornings!

My favourite part of my makeup routine is my brows and recently I've been enjoying Soap & Glory's Brow Archery. I'll have a full review of that coming in the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled for that one, but for now I'll say that it's completely changed my brow game! Did someone say brows on fleek? ;-) For my daily eyeshadow I like something that I can just quickly throw on with one swipe - I never have the time to faff about with four different eyeshadows and a couple of different blending brushes. Recently I've been loving wearing the shade 'Toasted' from the Naked Palette all over my lid, it's a beautiful pink colour that looks so pretty with my blue eyes. If I've time I like to pop on a bit of brown liner and I've been loving the Maybelline Master Drama kohl liner. To achieve long fluttery lashes I've been using the Rimmel Lash Accelerator and Wet n Wild Mega Length mascara. To finish off my makeup I apply Mac 'Modesty' lipstick - a lovely mauve nude shade with a smooth creamy formula. And that vanilla scent; Love!

What are your daily makeup products?
