So I thought I would show the blogging community my everyday makeup routine.
I'm really happy with my current makeup routine at the moment so I thought I would share the products with you today.
|All the goodies!|
So start with I use the Rimmel Stay Matte primer, I adore this range as I used to suffer from majorly oily skin and still get paranoid about that unwanted shine! The primer helps my foundation to stay in place all day long and most importantly, helps me to 'stay 'matte' all day!
Once this has settled into my skin I reach for my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte mousse foundation in Ivory. (I'm not being sponsored by Rimmel I promise!) This is literally my holy grail product; it gives full coverage with a matte finish, two things I look for in a foundation. I would highly recommend this to all you oily skinned girls!
Next step, concealer! To no surprise, I use the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in the shade 3 around my nose and on any blemishes I have... It works a treat! To cancel out my under eye circles I take the MAC Prep and Prime pen in Light Boost, this is quickly becoming a staple in my makeup routine. Once finished I set with my Rimmel Stay Matte powder in translucent.
Now to my favourite step in my routine: my brows! I use the Sleek brow kit in shade dark as I LOVE big bold brows. I really think eyebrows frame the face and should be the main feature. "Never trust anyone with bad brows" is such a true phrase! To see a full routine check out my blog post here
I then take my Sleek Contour kit in Fair to contour my cheeks. As I have no visible cheek bones at all I contour to death! I really want to try Nars Laguna for a contour but I can't justify spending that much money when Sleek do a brilliant one for a fraction of the price!
I never ever ever miss out curling my eyelashes. I have super straight lashes so if I don't curl them mascara does nothing... Talking of mascara I swear by Maybelline The Colossal. I love how black it is and how voluminous it makes my lashes. Although I am trying out Benefits They're Real mascara and enjoying it! Let me know if you want a review/comparison?
For blush I recently discovered Topshop's powder blush in 'Dream Phone'. It's such a gorgeous plummy colour with a slight shimmer running through it. I reach for it every single day without fail. Staying on the topic of cheeks, I go back to Sleek Contour Kit and take the highlight onto the tops of my cheekbones and down my nose to create a gorgeous highlighted effect.
I now go back to my powder and set my whole face in place and to keep all the oil at bay! Finally onto lips. I moisture my lips with Carmex and wait for that to soak in before lining my lips with Rimmel's Exaggerate Lip Liner in 063 Eastend Snob. And obliviously I then grab my MAC lipstick I'm the colour Snob.. My all time favourite every day shade. I love love love how it makes my lips look and how it isn't drying at all.
And that is me done and ready to face the day!
