Hello, my Lovelies!x
As I am now a busy working girl, I’ve recently fallen into the habit of using the same makeup products as a part of my everyday makeup routine. Today I wanted to share my routine with you all, as well as some of my makeup must-haves. I hope you enjoy!
Base: I always begin my routine by applying a combination of the L’Oreal Infallible Luminising Primer Shot (£8.99) and the Revolution Liquid Highlighter (£6.00) in Euphoric Gold. This dreamy duo creates a dewy golden glow which shines through under my foundation and other base products.
Moving on foundation, I apply a light layer of the L’Oreal’s True Match Foundation (£9.99). This has been my go-to for years now and I honestly don’t think I could find anything better! This budget friendly foundation provides medium to high coverage. I use the shades 1.N Ivory and 2.N Vanilla and always apply it with my beauty sponge.
I use the same concealer to banish both my blemishes, redness and dark circles. My favourite is the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19). Beloved throughout the blogger community, this full-coverage concealer is one product that I couldn’t live without!
To set my base I use a light dusting of the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder (£2.99). This translucent powder blurs my pores and controls shine on those hot Summer days! I then lightly bronze up my face with a combination of Benefit’s Hoola (£26.99) and the L’Oreal Back to Bronze Matte Bronzer (£8.99).
Blush was always a step I missed in my makeup routine. That was until I discovered the L’Oreal Life’s a Peach Powder Blush (£8.99). This peachy blush is perfect for accompanying any makeup look and for adding a natural flush of colours. I then finish off my base by applying the KIKO Water Eyeshadow in 208 Light Gold.
Eyes: The Morphe 9B Bronzed Babe Eyeshadow Palette (£12.99) is my favourite palette for effortless everyday eye looks. I use the shade Hang Ten to add definition to my crease and Faux Real to add a touch of bronze shimmer to the rest of my lid. I smoke out my bottom lash line with the same shades, before adding a cat-eye flick with the Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner(£6.50). I then add two coats of the Max Factor Masterpiece Lash Crown Defining Mascara (£10.99) to finish off the look.
Brows: I like to keep things nice and simple with my brows. I like them to look soft and natural, so I lightly define them using the L’Oreal Paradise Brow Pomade (£12.99) in Dark Blonde. And to set my brows in place, I always use the Max Factor Natural Brow Styler Clear Eyebrow Gel.
Lips: None of my makeup looks would be complete without a nude lip. My current go-to is the KIKO Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick in 104 Vintage Rose. This lipsticks creamy formula is perfect for everyday wear and it’s soft nude shade makes it so easy to wear. I also love the MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Kinda Sexy (£17.50).
