My Everyday Makeup Routine

Thursday, July 04, 2013

So I thought today I would share with you my everyday makeup routine this is the look I wear for work or on a weekend if I'm just nipping out shopping. I wont go into all the skin care I use just the makeup and base.
So here I go ....

(bare face)
Face Prep
I always cleanse, Tone and Moisturise before applying any products on my face to give me a good base and to protect my skin. I then Had a primer to give me a smooth finish to my foundation the primer I've been using and i'm love with at the moment is Benefits Pore Fessional. I glide this over my nose and into the tops of cheeks as that is where I feel benefits from this the most.

(after primer and Foundation)
The foundation I have been using is Maxfactors 3 in 1 foundation in Natural. I feel this gives me a good coverage and if i'm not having a bad skin day I can miss out the concealer step. I tend to use my fingers as I think this gives me a better finish at the moment as i'm in need of new brushes.

The next step I do is contouring and at the moment my go to contour product is the Makeup Essentials Sun Kissed Bronzing Powder. I contour my cheek bones and the sides of my forehead, I also run a little down the sides of my nose.

I apply a blush to the apples of my cheek I find the easiest way to do this is smile and I then apply to the puffy bit of my cheek. My main go to blush for work has been MACs Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Plum Foolery.
I then blend the contour and blush with a big powder brush to give a more natural finish.

For my lashes I apply 1 coat of the Ultra Black clubbing Mascara by Bourjois. I love this mascara and if i'm going on a night out I apply an extra coat and the intensity is amazing its a volumising and lengthening mascara and it really does work.

To finish off the look I have used Mirenesse Glossy Kiss in the shade 14 - Perfect Kiss. This has just the right amount of shimmer and colour.

Toodle - oo
