My Every Day Make Up

These are the lovely products I use to make my face socially acceptable! (L-R Clockwise) MUA Undress Me Too palette (£4), Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in True Ivory (£6.99), L'Oreal Nude Magique Blur Cream in light/medium (£9.99), Revlon Nearly Naked Powder in (£7.99), Garnier Miracle Skin Perfecter Eye Roll-On in light (£6.99), ELF Studio Blush in Blushing Rose (£3.95), Superdry Volumising Mascara (£20 in set), Maybelline EyeStudio Colour Tattoo in Pink Gold (£4.99), Rimmel Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow in Jet Black (£4.49), 2True Effortless Eyeliner in Black (£1.99), NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in Sunny (£1.99)

Phew, that was a lot!

The final result!
I always do my eyes first so if there is any fall over I can cover it with my face make up. I use the Colour Tattoo as my base and on uni days use a rose gold colour from the Naked 3 palette over the lid. However I didn't bring this palette home with me for Easter so I'm currently using the MUA Undress Me Too palette which is a dupe for the Naked 2. I use the gold shade all over my lid then blend the matte mauve-y colour in the crease and finish with the champagne colour in the corner of my eye. 

I then use the 2True eyeliner to line my top lash line and (attempt!) a small wing, which sometimes turn out a lot bigger than originally intended. This is the only eyeliner I've found which doesn't fade or transfer onto the top of my eyelid or the crease (as you can see my eyelids sort of droop down to my lash line so transferring is a big issue for me). I love the Superdry mascara, which I got for Christmas in a set, as its very similar to the Maybelline One by One.


Then onto the face make up. I use the Garnier Eye Roll-On which is tinted under my eyes and then blend with the Real Techniques Setting brush, which I know isn't the intended use! With all the BB Cream hype Garnier has now repackaged and renamed this product but I hope it is still the same formula because it provides good coverage for my horrible bags but has an extremely light feel. 

I then apply the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation with my Real Techniques Miracle Complextion Sponge (Review here). I have tried so many foundations but this is the only one I have found which works perfectly with my dry skin, providing build-able coverage which doesn't catch any dry flaky patches and matches my skin colour perfectly! If I need a little more coverage I use the Maybelline Better Skin Concealer with the sponge. I set my foundation with the Revlon Nearly Naked Powder which is incredibly soft and light weight while providing a lot of coverage. I tend to use the ELF Studio Blush in Blushing Rose for everyday and then contour/bronze (I do both at the same time, so unconventional) with the NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in Sunny, which has a bit of a cult following. It looks really orange but I promise, from a pale girl point of view, it's not!

I fill my eyebrows in with the Rimmel Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow in Jet Black with an angled brush. I don't use any fancy brow specific products, mainly because most are not dark enough to match to my black hair. My eye brows are naturally quite thick so I simply go over the brow hairs with the black eyeshadow. Im sure any eyeshadow would suffice in a pinch! I switch up my lip colour daily but one of my favourites and most used is the Revlon Colourburst Lipgloss in Strawberry (£7.99)

This seems like a lot of make up and a long routine but I have it down to a fine art, I can complete in ten minutes if rushed!

What products do you use daily and love? Let me know!
