Everyday Make-Up Look

Friday, 17 June 2016

I've seen quite a few of these types of posts floating around the blogosphere recently, and I thought it was about time I did one of my own! I post quite a few reviews of individual products but it's been a while since I gave you all a little insight into my beauty routine.

Any good face of make-up starts with a good base and I've recently discovered my holy grail of primers in The Body Shop Instaglow CC Cream. It comes in three beautiful shades and looks gorgeous on its own or under make-up. Even when I was poorly a couple of weeks ago with pale and sallow skin, I popped a bit of this magic CC cream on and it gave my face a healthy-looking, dewy glow. I'm so obsessed!

One of my all-time favourite foundations is MAC's Face and Body Foundation and this is the one that I tend to use day-to-day. I love that it gives all the amazing coverage that you'd expect from MAC, without any of the heaviness that I've found with foundations like Studio Fix, which are just way too much for my skin.

I usually follow with Rimmel's Wake Me Up Concealer. I'm usually really picky when it comes to drugstore make-up, but I absolutely LOVE this stuff. It's so good at zapping away the dark circles under my eyes (which has been even more of a mammoth task recently!) Next is Rimmel's Stay Matte Pressed Powder, which is equally fab and has taught me that you don't have to pay through the nose for a good powder!

To finish off my base, I love Avon's Illuminating Face Pearls. They're so perfect for summer to give a natural, rosy complexion. This is another recent discovery of mine and I don't think I'll ever find a blusher I love this much again!

For me, it's all about Benefit when it comes to eyes. I'm unashamedly continuing my long-standing love affair with the They're Real! Push Up Gel Liner. It can be a tricky product to get the hang of using but once you've mastered it, there's no going back! I love that it makes my eyes look bigger and I can FINALLY get the perfect winged eye with it!

I'm also still obsessed with Roller Lash mascara for day-to-day use. It gives such a pretty, flirty look to your lashes which I adore!

And voila! The finished look!

What are your go-to make-up products for day-to-day?

  1. Lovely blogpost!

    I have a similar group of products to you! For base I use Rimmel London wake me up foundation followed by the wake me up concealer. I find them the perfect duo! I also use the Stay Matte powder which I love too!

    I use the Benefit Hoola bronzer and They're Real mascara for my eyes. If I fancy putting any eyeliner on then I use the 24/7 maybelline gel liner!

    Lovely blogpost again!
    Lots of love,
