My Everyday Makeup Routine & Products

I’m just obsessed with everything make up related!

I wouldn’t wear makeup everyday but I would wear it a lot. My routine always stays the same but the products I use vary from time to time.

Today I’ve written a post on what products I use most often for my everyday look and what way I use them. Enjoy!

 

I’m not one to use primers, I never really was. I’ve tried them out but never found that they worked well on me so I always go straight into using my foundation. I use the Nars Sheer Glow Everyday in the shade ‘Sante Fe‘. I’ve mentioned lots of times on this blog how much I adore this foundation! I use the Sigma F80 Kabuki brush to apply the foundation all over and then buff the foundation in further with MAC’s 187 Duo Fibre brush.

To conceal I use the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in the shade ‘Fair (1)’. It’s easy to blend and quite good at covering up dark circles and blemishes.

I use the middle 2 shades to set the under eye concealer and the bottom left shade to powder the rest of my face. I don’t use setting sprays but powder does the job for me so I don’t tend to reach for any sprays.

After my base I lightly contour with Benefit’s Hoola bronzer and then go in with MAC’s blush in the shade ‘Melba‘. I tend to stick with the one blush all the time until I hit pan and then I’ll try another.

I then fill in my eyebrows with powder. I used to use the Gosh Brow Kit but after that ran out I turned to my Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette and I use the brown shades from that. I’ve hit pan on my brown shades so if anyone has any brow product recommendations, please throw them my way! I love using the palette for brows even though they are eyeshadows but they stay in place and I top the powder  with Benefits Gimme Brow in the shade ‘Deep‘ .

My eyeshadow palette changes everyday depending on what mood I’m in. I love using the Sleek palettes and the Modern Renaissance from Anastasia Beverly Hills most days but I do change them up often.

When all of this is done I use my favourite mascara of all time the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Super Volume Mascara. I mentioned in posts from 2 years ago how much I love it and I’ve been using it ever since!

The very last thing I use are lip products. Like the eyeshadow palettes, my lip products vary from day-to-day. I wrote a post last week all about my favourite lipsticks Here that I’m loving right now and I pick and choose my products daily from the ones on that list. It’s definitely the toughest decision choosing what lip product to use on a day-to-day basis! I always line my lips first before going in with lip products as it creates a shape and makes it easier to apply products.

 

That’s pretty much my basic everyday makeup routine. I hope you enjoyed it!
