The Everyday Face

2015-02-22 15.28.57Of all the make up looks I read about on blogs or watch on Youtube, I have to say, the everyday look is the one I’m drawn to over all others. So I thought that today I’d share my everyday make up routine with you on this here blog. πŸ™‚

I do change it up now and again, but this is what I’m currently doing…2015-02-22 15.17.14One thing before I get into it, just so you know, I do everything in a totally bizarre order, but just go with me on it, yeah?!
So first up I put my mascara on. I just don’t get how YouTubers do this last, I will never understand how they don’t get mascara all over their perfectly made-up faces, because this is exactly what happens when I put mascara on, hence why I do it first! This then means I can wipe off all the mess with a face wipe – I know, I know face wipes are bad and all that, but they certainly are useful for mopping up mascara!Β I use Maybelline The Colossal mascara and Boots essentials cleansing wipes.
Next I pop some moisturiser on Β – I’m currently using Nivea Light Moisturising Day Cream, and then a dab of primer – normally either Bare Minerals Prime Time or Benefit Porefessional. Once I feel like my mascara has dried to a suitable level, I’ll use my eyelash curlers. 3 squeezes usually does it.2015-02-22 15.21.08Next up, eyebrows.2015-02-22 14.44.54I use Anastasia Brow Wiz and Anastasia Brow Gel for this, I’ve mentioned these before in my favourites, and I still absolutely love them. Then I move on to eyeliner. I use a brown Rimmel eyeliner which seems to work well against my very fair skin – a little less harsh than black but still pretty dark.2015-02-22 15.13.34Next I use Bare Minerals Stroke Of Light concealer, which is my absolute holy grail product – I cannot live without this – it is a life saver! I just pop a few swipes under my eyes, down my nose, on my chin and then a couple of swipes on any particularly red patches. I then blend it all out with the Real Techniques deluxe crease brush.2015-02-22 15.19.14Finally a swipe of powder to finish, using the Rimmel Stay Matte translucent powder. Then I’ll just pop a bit of lip balm on and I’m ready to go – simples!2015-02-22 15.26.00A little before and after for you!everyday faceThis little routine seems to work pretty well for me at the moment. Of course if I’m going somewhere fancy then I have a bit more of a detailed routine than this, perhaps I’ll share that one with you soon!
