Everyday Make Up

Wednesday, 11 November 2015

Today's post is all about my everyday make up routine. I feel that it's fairly simple yet still looks put together and sophisticated. Sometimes if I'm in a rush then I won't bother with winged eye liner, but I have been practising recently and I feel more confident doing a winged look. 


To start with I will prime my face using the ELF Poreless Face Primer to smooth out my skin and minimise the appearance of my pores.
Next I will go in with a damp Real Techniques sponge and apply the NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Foundation in the shade Ivory. 
I will then use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in the shade Fair underneath my eyes, down the centre of my nose and forehead, and on my chin. I usually apply this with the Real Techniques sponge as well.
I then use the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation stick in the shade 330 Toffee Caramel to contour my nose, cheeks and apply it to my forehead. 
Using the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, I will then set my entire face, trying to avoid the areas I've just contoured.
I will then go in with Benefit's Hoola bronzer to go over the contour I have already done and to bring some warm to my face. 
Next I will apply NYX's Powder Blush in Peach on the apples of my cheeks, making sure I've blended it all in. 
Finally I will add High Beam by Benefit on the tops of my cheek bones and down the centre of my nose. 


First of all I will comb through my brows and then apply the Milani Stay Put Brow in the shade Natural Taupe. I will then go in with the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Taupe to fill in and add any fine detail. Finally I set my brows with the Rimmel Clear Brow Gel.


To start with I will go in with the shade Whiskey from the Naked Smoky Palette and apply that in my crease, making sure it's blended out nicely.
 I will then add the Maybelline Color Tattoo in the shade Creme De Rose all over my lid, which will act as a base. I tend to do the crease colour first as I sometimes find it difficult to blend out the eyeshadow once the Color Tattoo has been applied. 
Using the Naked Smoky palette again, I will add the shade Combust all over my lid and blend it into the crease. I then add the shade High to the inner corner of my eye to brighten up that area and also use Whiskey again on my lower lash line.
Next I will line the lower
waterline of my eye with the Benefit Bad Gal eyeliner in the shade extra black and do my winged eyeliner with the Soap and Glory Supercat Pen. 
Finally I curl my lashes with these eyelash curlers from Superdrug and apply a couple of coats of mascara with ELF's 3-in-1 Mascara in the shade Very Black.


Finally, I will line my lips with MAC'S lip liner in Soar and apply MAC'S matte lipstick in Mehr. I love this lip combination so much and is perfect for every day use!
