The first step after moisturising my face in the mornings is using the Rimmel Fix and Perfect primer, this is quite a nice primer, it lasts well on the face and leaves my skin feeling fairly smooth. Recently I've completely changed my foundation routine. First of all I start off with my Mac Studio Fix Foundation in NC15 all over the face, I won't say too much because i'm planning on doing a full post on this foundation some time soon but I really like it, it's such a full coverage foundation and I love the finish it leaves on my skin and how it lasts all day. In order to counteract the dark circles I then use my Rimmel ‘Wake me up’ concealer, this is a good concealer to just help add light to the area but I would say the coverage isn’t the best so I just use it to help lighten the darkest circles a bit. Next, I use the Mac Studio Finish concealer in NC15 also and I just spread this on any blemishes and over my dark circles. I then finish off my foundation routine with the Mac Studio Fix powder in C2, this is a good powder because it lasts all day and locks in your foundation really well, and it’s quite full coverage but doesn’t leave you looking cakey so I’ve been really liking this. Next I dust some Bourjois Poudre Bronzante on my cheekbones and all over my face if I wanted too add a bit more colour to my face and then lastly I dust Topshop's crescent moon highlighter over my cheekbones and cupid's bow to add a bit more definition to my face.
Once I’ve done the steps I’ve spoke about above I move on to my eye makeup, during the day I don’t like to wear a lot of eyeshadow, I normally focus on eyeshadow more when I’m going on nights out or when I have slightly longer to do my makeup. During the day I tend too just go for a more natural look on the eye area. Anyway, the products I’ve been using on my eyes lately are all actually L’Oreal, and I absolutely love them all. I curl my eyelashes and then use the L’Oreal telescopic mascara on my lashes, I use this first because it really lengthens my lashes and gives me all the length I need, I then use L’Oreal’s million lashes over the top, the reason for doing another step with my mascara is because this mascara is amazing at giving my lashes a lot of volume where as the telescopic is better at adding extra length to my lashes so together they are a perfect combination. The last thing I do to finish my eye makeup is too use L’Oreal’s super liner, I love every single version of the super liners by L’Oreal, they are perfect and so easy to use and line your eye with and I find this to be really quick and simple during the day time.
The last step in my daily makeup routine is the lips, I firstly use the gorgeous Topshop lipstick in innocence, which is a lovely milky pink colour and super creamy too! And then on top I like to use my Mac crème sheen glass in ‘Going Casual’, I think together this creates a beautiful but natural lip look.
