Everyday Makeup Routine

Hello,

Thought it would be nice to share my everyday makeup routine/ the products I use with you for this post to give you an idea of the products and brands I like.

Primer: KIKO SKIN TONE CORRECTOR PRIMER- GREEN

I use this primer due to my naturally red/flushed complexion and green naturally contracts redness so this primer creates a more even base for the rest of my makeup, this is my favourite colour correcting primer I’ve tried. (£9.90)

Foundation: REVLON COLOURSTAY FOR DRY/NORMAL SKIN- IVORY

I am in no way loyal to one foundation so this varies weekly but for a few weeks now I’ve been using this one and actually really liking it. I’d put it as a medium to full coverage foundation, a liquid formula which blends very well. There is a massive range of colours and tones as well as another formula for combination/oily skin. (£12.99)

Concealer: COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER- 1.FAIR

I feel like so many people on the internet rave about this concealer but I can totally understand why because it is just amazing. For an affordable, high street concealer it is so full coverage, blendable and long lasting. (£4.19)

Powder: RIMMEL STAY MATTE PRESSED POWDER-TRANSLUCENT

Another ‘hero product’ of the internet but again, amazing quality makeup at an insanely good price. I feel as though powder can be so expensive and over priced in the high end brands so good high street powders are the best finds. This powder sets makeup and stops shine all day and I can’t fault it. (£3.99)

Contour: SLEEK CREAM CONTOUR PALETTE-LIGHT

Now, I actually only use one shade out of this but I like it all almost like a contouring base for my bronzer to stick to and it create a neater, sharper contour than just powder would but still looks blended and wearable. (£10.99)

Bronzer: BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER

I go over my cream contour with this bronzer and just where you’d usually bronze and it just structures my face and warms my complexion. I love the shade of this bronzer, it’s just the right colour and tone for my complexion. It is so pigmented though so I find it easy to over-do the bronzer. (£23.50)

Highlighter: MAC MINERALIZE SKIN FINISH- SOFT AND GENTLE

This is another product that is so talked about. This is a pinky, silvery highlight and it is extremely shimmery and pigmented. It adds so much shape to the face and looks insane in photos. (£24.00)

Brows: ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS DIP BROW POMADE-CHOCOLATE

I have recently really got to grips with this product and loved the results it gives. Brows have become such a trend and I feel I have a lot of control with this product compared to a brow powder and can really create a defined and shaped brow. (£15.00)

Eye Primer: URBAN DECAY PRIMER POTION-ORIGINAL

I struggle with really oily eyelids and without a primer, eyeshadow just slips off but this primer is like glue, eye makeup stays in place all day and all night(£16.00)

Eyeshadow: MORPHE 12 COLOUR PALETTE-NATRUAL BEAUTY

This is the first and only product I have ever tried from MORPHE and it’s quite nice, it’s a small, compact palette with all the neutral colours you could need which I think is probably why it made it in to my everyday makeup bag. I typically only use one shade all over the lid and thats a light/mid brown matte shade. (£11.95)

Mascara: MAYBELLINE LASH SENSATIONAL MASCARA-INTENSE BLACK

This mascara creates a natural but long, thick set of lashes. Doesn’t really smudge on me unless its really hot. Just a good mascara at a reasonable price. (£7.99)

Lip Balm: VASELINE-ORIGINAL

I really can’t say much about the classic that is vaseline, everyone needs to use this daily because it is just incredible. I use it everyday under whatever lip products I’m wearing to protect my lips.(£1.95 boots price, can be found cheaper)

Lip Liner- MAC LIP PENCIL- WHIRL

I don’t really use lipstick on a daily basis unless I’m in a rush, I prefer to use this lip pencil, start by lining my lips and then filling them in so their one solid colour and I find this lasts a lot better. I love the MAC lip pencils as the texture is really easy to work with. (£12.50)

Lipgloss: NYX BUTTERGLOSS-CREME BRULEE

Most days I will finish my makeup with this lipgloss, I had heard people recommend these lip glosses a lot and I was so impressed when I tried them, really nice, creamy formula and this colour is so natural and wearable.(£5.00)

That’s my whole daily face of makeup, I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and found out some products to try. Photo is below so you can see what I’m talking about the whole way through this post!! If you’d like to see an everyday makeup brushes or a light summer makeup routine then let me know!IMG_3126.JPG

that’s all for now,
