FaceNow there are two foundations that I think are pretty perfect and they're the ones I use on an everyday basis. Recently (as in the last week or so) I've been favoring my Mac Studio Fix Foundation over my Rimmel Wake Me Up, but normally I'll switch between the two on a daily basis and I slather either of them on with my Real Techniques Expert Face brush. Next I will take my Mac Studio Finish Concealer and use this to cover up any redness on my face or any spots or blemishes that I don't want anyone too see. The next step is to apply Fake Up by Benefit underneath my eye area in a V motion and then blend it upwards under the eye area with my fingers. I like to use my fingers because I feel like it really helps to warm up and blend in the product for a seemless coverage of those pesky dark circles. Next I will set all of my face makeup with my Rimmel Stay Matte face powder and my Real Techniques Powder Brush, I mainly concentrate on sweeping powder over my forehead and my nose and focus the most attention on my oily t-zone. The next step to finish off my face for an everyday look would be to add some bronzer and a contour. I keep two bronzing products in my everyday makeup bag and pretty much switch between the two. The first one is the Chanel Bronze Universal which I normally apply on my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to contour both my cheek bones and my temples and then I would go over with a bit of Nars Laguna Bronzer to both intensify the contour and also just generally bronze the face up. I'm not a massive blush fan so to be honest on an everyday basis I normally skip blush and highlighter and move on to the eyes. My everyday makeup consists of a lot of basic and quick steps which can get me ready as quickly as possible and out of the door.
EyesFor the eyes I go really simple and natural during the day, I don't particularly like wearing eye shadow on an every day basis but I do wear it sometimes depending on my mood but for an average day I find it saves time if I skip it. Anyway I firstly line my upper lash line with either the maybelline gel eyeliner which I love or the L'oreal Super Liner. The reason I have two is that I use them for different reasons, I would use the L'oreal one if I want to create a flick or i'll use the maybelline one if I want a more soft and natural liner. I've just realized that I was a complete idiot when I was photographing these products because I forgot to photograph my mascara! Anyway I've inserted a picture now of Benefit's they're real which is my go to mascara, this is the sample size from Elle magazine but I have the full size and love it too. Anyway, I curl my lashes and then apply my Benefit they're real mascara to them so that I end up with really long and volumised lashes. The next step is too fill in my eyebrows, I love filling in my brows because I love how it defines your face but I find it such a hard process, anyway I use the MUA Brow Kit and use the darkest shade to fill in my eyebrows, I use my real techniques angled eyeliner brush for this part.
LipsLastly I pop on a lipstick because I feel that it just completes the look and leaves my makeup looking finished and polished. I normally switch between two different lipsticks for everyday wear. I will normally just go for my favourite lipstick of all time which is Mac Angel, I find that this is the perfect lipstick to just chuck on in the day and is perfect for school or work or pretty much whatever you're doing during the day. I've recently been wearing nude lipsticks a lot more though and I love this Rimmel Lasting Perfection lipstick in 700 or I go for the Revlon Lip Butter in creme brulee.
Anyway I'm really sorry for the super duper short post but I thought it was best to write something! I'll speak to you all really soon,
Lots of Love,
