Everyday Makeup Routine

I think I have finally curated my perfect, everyday makeup routine. It includes those trusty grab and go products, that you just know will perform like you want them too. I thought I would share them with you today, to give you a glimpse into what I put on my face most days. I wear makeup about 4 out of 7 days, maybe 5, depending on when I am at Uni/Work. The other days I am either at the gym so I don't bother, or just chilling at home.

Anything marked with a * has been sent to me free of charge from the brand/PR. It doesn't change how I talk about them. This is just my routine and the products I have come to love.


For my base, I like to keep it pretty simple, using a nice medium coverage satin foundation and a lightweight dewy concealer. My top ones at the moment are both from the drugstore, making them really affordable and accessible. The foundation is the Rimmel match perfection and the concealer is Bourjois radiance reveal. The foundation gives me the exact amount of coverage that I want and it looks and feels great on the skin. It can be built up to if needed. The concealer has really great coverage also, whilst still being lightweight and easy to blend in. It makes my under eyes look more alive and I am very happy about that. I then use the Rimmel true matte powder to set both the foundation and concealer in place. I have used this powder for years, it is for sure a holy grail. It keeps me from looking shiny, without looking cakey or flat.


To make my face look a little bit more defined, I use highlighter and bronzer. I don't bother with contouring on a day to day basis, and it is rare that I pick up a blush nowadays. This is just because I have enjoyed streamlining my product use, and I don't really miss it. The highlighter is from Wet N Wild, and it is a gorgeous mild pink, and the bronzer is from Physicians Formula, and it is a lovely warm toned brown. The bronzer is quite light which is perfect for my skin tone in the winter.


I am still using my old faithful, and you can probably tell that it is a little old and well loved. It is the Kiss Cosmetics brow palette*, along with the Beautanio brow gel which has definitely ran out. (I just use it as a comb really). You can read about my full brow routine here. I love the brow palette so much, it makes getting ready SO much easier. 


Most days I don't bother with eye shadow anymore. Not because I don't love it, more because it saves time. You already know about my fave palettes (Urban Decay Born to Run, Anastasia Modern Renaissance), so if I am ever wearing shadow, it is likely those. Now, I just whack on some liner and a bit of mascara, and I am good. The products I am loving are the Kat Von D tattoo liner and the Lancome doll eyes hypnotise mascara. The liner is so easy to apply, almost effortless, and the mascara adds a really pretty doll eye effect, as the name would suggest. 


Sometimes I don't even wear lipstick. I know, a crime. Sometimes I don't bother because I don't like the feel on my lips for long, or I know I'm going to be eating (lol) and it will just come off anyway. If I do wear something, I will most likely go for a gloss right now, because they wear off in a way that you don't notice their disappearance. I actually really like this Soap and Glory metallic lip cream* at the moment, as it is lightweight and just adds a nice glow to the lips. I also really enjoy a Colourpop lip gloss I own, which is a tad holographic and sparkly. 

That is all for now, I hope you have enjoyed this snapshot into my everyday makeup routine. What products do you use everyday? Anything I am missing? 

Bye for now,
