Everyday Makeup Routine

Hi team! 

Something different today, so I woke up bright eyed, bushy tailed and ready to slay at 5:30am. What is life? I also locked myself out of my house this morning for 15 mins. Again, what is life? 

I thought I’d show you my daily makeup routine for work. 

So I start by clensing my face with my favourite Garnier Skin Active Micellar Water for Sensitive Skin. I have noticed such a difference in the texture of my skin since using this, it literally takes every inch of makeup and grime from my face, so y’know, it’s a winner. 

After my face has dried completely from the micellar water it’s time to prime for me. This is a new one for me, it’s the W7 Prime Magic 

Camera Ready Primer. I will write a full review of this once I’ve given it a fair chance. My foundation lasts so much longer with a primer, so for me it is a must! 

So next we have base. I am currently using Wet and Wild Photofocus Foundation in Porcelain. I have been using this little buffing brush to blend my foundation in. I got it from eBay for a pound! I have seen the same one on Amazon for 49p. Bargain! 

I use Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light under my eyes and around my nose, also any spots that just need an extra bit of help.

So base is down, we’re blended next is colour. I was sent this ELF Pink Lemonade Highlight in my makeup swap with angelinabbdoll, and it is so good for a cream blush. You don’t need a lot, but it gives a gorgeous rosey glow. It also smells of lemonade #revalation. I use this Benefit Hoola Bronzer which I got in a miniatures set to sculpt out some cheek bones, and warm up my face. I have been using this ELF Shimmer Powder as a subtle highlight and I’m honestly in love, I highlight both cheeks, my nose both tip and bridge and my forehead. I will shine bright like a diamond. 

Once I’m at this point, I will do my eyebrows, which I forgot to photograph. I am still using the Makeup Revolution Arch and Shape Brow Pencil. I just follow the natural shape of my brows and fill in any sparse areas. I do this first to just avoid mess. Next is shadow, I use my I Heart Makeup Unicorn Love Palette as it has lots of lovely warm transitional colours and gorgeous shimmers which I find very versatile. Eyeliner is Soap and Glory Supercat Eyeliner in Carbon Black. It is just the best eyeliner I have ever used. Flicks made a breeze. I use MUA Amplify Statement Lash Mascara as honestly, it’s amazing. My lashes look so long and thick, their isn’t much more you can ask of a £3 mascara! 

Lastly is lippy, today was NYX Liquid Lingere in Exotic. I was quite heavy handed today, coz it came out quite dark, like my soul. 

I really hope you’ve enjoyed my daily makeup routine, let me know if you’d like to see more posts like this.
