Hello my Lovelies, sorry I’ve been totally MIA recently. I’m finally trying to get myself reorganised and back into blogging. I hope you’ve all had a lovely week so far, I’m so looking forward to the weekend.
I thought I would write a blog today about my everyday make-up routine. My make-up routine rarely changes but it has recently due to it being Christmas and my birthday not long ago I’ve invested in some new make-up products that I would love to share with you.
So for starters lets start with primer. I never usually stick to one primer, I’m always trying out new ones to find the perfect one for my skin type. For Christmas my brother bought me the Benefit Pore Fessional which you retails for around £27.50. You can purchase this from Boots and many other shops. The primer claims to minimize pores and I’m telling you now, it definitely does. It reduced my pores great and helped make my make-up stay put all day long.
As for foundation I use The Ordinary Full Coverage Foundation for daily use. If you haven’t already read my first impressions blog post about this foundation then you can check it out here. This foundation is an absolute bargain, £6 for a foundation is just unbelievable and especially because the foundation is actually amazing. I purchased mine from ASOS but you can also purchase it from House of Fraser or Cult beauty for the same price.
For my eyebrows I like to use the Freedom Eye Brow Pomade in the shade Soft Brown. This eyebrow pomade is soooooo good! And did I mention that it only costs £2.50?! You can purchase this from pretty much anywhere online at a relatively cheap price. If you want to purchase it you can get it from Superdrug here.
For contour I use the Sleek Face Contour Kit in the shade Light. This retails for £6.99 in Superdrug as well, which you can purchase here. As you can probably tell already I live for drugstore make-up, I won’t buy expensive products unless I totally think they’re worth it. This also comes with a beautiful highlight which gives a totally natural look.
The highlight I love to use on a daily basis is the Mary Lou Manizer. I have used this religiously for around 2 years now and I am yet to find another highlighter that can beat it. It retails for around £16-17 and you can purchase it online or in store from Debenhams.
For blush I have been using another present from my brother that I got for Christmas. This time it’s Rockateur by benefit which retails for £24.50 in Boots and other online and in-store retailers. It’s a perfect shade for my fair complexion and is sooo pigmented so a little goes a long way.
Next onto my favourite thing, eyeshadow. I usually switch between 3 different palettes when doing my eyeshadow but to keep this short and simple I’ll talk about the one I’ve used the most recently. I’ve been using the Make-up Revolution x Soph Palette pretty often when doing my makeup. There are so many beautiful shades in the palette that you can create a wide variety of eyeshadow looks. This palette only cots £10 which is an absolute bargain for how amazing the palette and shades inside are. I would totally recommend. You can purchase it here from Boots (definitely do it!)
Now onto Mascara. For mascara I’ve been using the L’Oreal Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll which retails for around £7.99 in drug stores. I’m not really a sucker for a really good mascara as I always use an eyelash curler so pretty much anything will do the job.
That pretty much concludes my everyday makeup routine in a very long winded blog post (sorry!) If there’s anything in particular you’d like me to wrote about or review then make sure you leave a comment down below.
Until next time,
