My Everyday Makeup

For my everyday makeup, I don't tend to wear very much. I'll only wear eyeshadow, lipstick and contour my face if I'm going out or to a special event. But anyways, here's my everyday makeup routine!

Firstly, I use the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation in the shade 51 vanille Clair and blend it all over my face using either the Real Techniques expert face brush, or a sponge. I prefer using a sponge if I'm in a rush because I find it quicker to blend the foundation using one. However, at the moment I am in serious need of a new sponge as my current one is falling apart! The Bourjois serum has been in my daily makeup routine for a while now and I wrote about it previously in this post along with some of these other products!

I then move onto concealer! Currently I'm using the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, which is loved by many bloggers, in the shade fair as I'm quite pale. I dot this onto any blemishes that I have (which thankfully isn't too many at the moment!) and also under my eyes to cover up my dark circles.

Next, I use the Rimmel Match Perfection loose powder and, using the Eco Tools powder brush, lightly dust it all over my face to keep my foundation and concealer in place. I usually focus more under my eyes and on my nose as these are usually the areas that I notice my makeup disappearing first. I prefer to use loose powder simply because I always end up breaking my pressed powder anyway.

I will then usually fill in my eyebrows using the Barry M brow kit. I used to never fill my eyebrows in, but this is a step that I never miss now because I like my brows to be bold, especially when I'm wearing my glasses.

Rather than using black eyeliner, I like to use brown as it's not too dark and I feel as though it compliments my eye colour and skin tone better than black. At the moment I'm using the Rimmel Special eyes precision eye liner pencil in rich brown.

Mascara is another step, like the eyebrows, that I never miss. Even if I'm not wearing any other makeup I will always put a little bit of mascara on to emphasis my lashes as they're really short and quite light in colour. I use the L'Oreal Paris Superstar mascara to lengthen them and add volume.

To give my cheeks a little bit of colour I swirl my Eco Tools powder brush in my Benefit Hervana blusher. The Hervana blusher has 4 gorgeous pink colours that compliment each other to create a natural flush!

To finish off my makeup I swipe a bit of Burts Bees lip balm on my lips and I'm good to go!
