Everyday Makeup Menu; The Autumn Edition

Autumn college makeup routine

| Everyday Makeup Menu; The Autumn Edition! |

Having a quick makeup routine is a vital component to surviving early mornings *wink wink* and over the years I've managed to cut my getting ready time in half. Applying my makeup was always the longest part of my morning routine but using these quick and easy products allows me to get ready in a few minutes.

My makeup routine begins with one of my favourite budget foundations, L'Oreal True Match. I always gravitate towards foundations that have a satin finish on an everyday basis as they make my skin look healthy and rejuvenated. This budget gem provides exactly that and the formula is quick and easy to blend, speeding up my makeup routine.

Concealer is a must-have on early mornings and the Seventeen Skin Wow concealer has been residing in my makeup bag recently. The creamy, moisturising formula is perfect for my dry skin, the finish is dewy, adding luminosity to my dark under-eye area and once the concealer is set with powder it lasts for hours.

I couldn't go a day without bronzer, it has the ability to transform my complexion from looking ghostly to looking healthy by adding some warmth to the face. For everyday wear, I usually reach for my Becca Sunlit bronzer as it looks subtle which is perfect for my College makeup look.

Another product to perk up my complexion during the dreary A/W months is my Hourglass blush in Diffused Heat. This vibrant coral pink hue adds subtle radiance to my cheeks which helps beat lacklustre skin that normally arises during the colder seasons. 

One can never have enough radiance in my opinion so I also like to sweep some of The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer onto the cheekbones and on the brow bone for some extra glow. 

Essence brushes

Good quality makeup needs a good set of tools to apply it with and I've been trying out some new launches from Essence. The brand is one of my top budget brands and they always release swoon-worthy limited edition collections. For their latest trend edition, they've released an abundance of beautiful brushes. I've been using the blush & draping brush* for applying a pop of blush to my cheeks. The round shape of the brush is ideal for precision blush application and it's also great for applying powder under the eyes. I've also been loving the contouring brush* to apply a subtle contour for everyday wear using my Charlotte Tilbury palette. Both of the brushes feel very soft and luxurious, and I can't believe they're only €4.10 each! *Runs to Penneys to buy the rest of the collection*

For the eyes, I usually opt for eyeshadows that can be worn on their own for a quick and effortless look. Matte browns are ideal for blending out all over the eye to add some definition and recently I've been reaching for my Urban Decay Ultimate Basics palette. This all-matte palette has some great shades in it that can be worn alone and the formula is easy to blend, meaning I can have my eyeshadow applied in 30 seconds. 

To finish off my eyes, I apply a little bit of the L'Oreal Paradise mascara, the Soap & Glory Brow Archery pencil to fill in my brows and finally I complete the look with Mac Brave lipstick.


What are your everyday makeup essentials?
