Everyday Makeup

19 January 2015

Like quite a few of you out there, I love to have a play around with my make up. But, I do have a look that I wear everyday, which is very simple and quick to do - mainly so I can spend some more minutes under the duvet!

About twice a year, I change up my everyday products. Mainly because I've either run out of a product I was using, or I've been introduced to something that has then made it's way in to my daily routine. 

As I've mentioned before, I rarely wear make up and, over the Christmas period I found myself not wearing any at all! However, as I'm now back in the swing of things (otherwise known as back to hanging out in public and not in my PJ's on the sofa watching films) I'm back to wearing makeup again.

Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm, Elemis
This flash Balm is in my make up bag all year round. I wear it on its own, for a healthy glow, or underneath my make up. It helps to brighten my skin and keeps it feeling soft and glowy.

Select Cover-Up in NW10, MAC
I've used this concealer for so many years now. It's great for hiding any breakouts and dark circles.

Touche Eclat, YSL
Another product I've used for years and, will probably use for years to come. I love products that actually do what they say they do, and this is one of them. 

Instant Radiance Highlighter, No7
I use this stick everyday! It gives me a little glow-boost on the cheek and brow bones. 

Blusher in Douceur, NARS
This is such an easy shade to wear - a light brown tinged pink that is matte and overall neutral in colour. 

Babydoll Volume Effect Faux Cils Mascara, YSL
I've been using 'Babydoll' by YSL since it came out and, I love it. It doesn't clump and, is smudge proof although, it can be a bit of a pain to get off!

Lip Balm, Eos
I recently mentioned this in my lip balm post, and I haven't stopped using it since my friend bought it back from New York. It smells amazing and, tastes good awell!

Honey perfume, Marc by Marc Jacobs
This is Summer in a bottle so, whilst we have this horrid weather, I tend to spray this on and hope that the warmer months are just around the corner. 

It's only in the last 9 months that I have started using makeup brushes. Massive shocker but now, I don't look back to those dark days of applying make up with my fingers (sometimes it's better than a brush but not all the time) Real Techniques are my favourite to use and, I always purchase them when Boots have an offer on them! 

I've recently purchased Pretty Honest, by Sali Hughes which, seems to be creating an even bigger make up obsession! Thankfully, I have a few gift vouchers from Christmas that I can use. Any recommendations, please comment below, Tweet or drop me an email.
