The Everyday Make Up Routine

Hello Lovelies,

I really wanted to do a post just to show what I put on my face on a day to day basis..and yes unfortunately I do need all these products to make me look half decent through-out the day!

Firstly for my base I have been using Rimmel's Wake Me Up Foundation which I apply using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush. And just incase I look too shiny I use a tiny bit of powder to get rid of that oily look and to set my make up also. Next I use my Sleek Contour Kit and contour my (non-existent) cheek bones! I do tend to change my blusher from day to day but my "go-to" blusher is "Mocha" from MAC. Its just a gorgeous matt rosey pink colour but a light hand is needed as it is so incredibly pigmented!
For my eyes I fill in my eyebrows using my Rimmel eyebrow pencil in Hazel...I'm not a huge eyebrow person but I do feel abit odd not having my eyebrows filled in! Then I use a small bit of Catrice's eyeshadow base to keep my shadow on for most/all of the day...and lately I have been using my Inglot pallet for my everyday eyeshadow look. Specifically using the colours 355 which is a gorgeous matt cream(perfect for all over the lid) and 337 which is another matt colour in a medium brown. Then I curl my eyelashes and layer up the mascara..My favourite mascara is Maybelline Falsies which is just amazing! I also love Benefits "They're Real' mascara but I hate using it up because its so fricking expensive! Wagh! Then depending on my mood I either line my eyes in brown or black eyeliner.
Finally using a quick layer of MAC's Hue (new favourite lipstick of all time!) I'm ready to go about my day!
