Everyday Make-up Updated
I thought it had been a while since I had shared anything make-up related on here, and I felt the need to do an updated everyday make-up routine. I think I've pretty much mastered the make-up combination of easy to do and something that looks natural. I will opt out of foundation most days really, but if I'm going out and want a little something extra I will use it.
My foundation of choice is the Rimmel Match Peferction Foundation as it's really pale (I have the shade 010 Light Porcelain) and that's what I need! I find it isn't too thick and is just the best I've found for my needs of the few foundations I have tried. I just mainly like the colour and radiance this gives you, but I still need to powder so I don't look shiny. I use the famous Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in the translucent shade as it does the job perfectly fine. I use two concealers for different parts of the face. I use the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection in 01 one for blemishes and cancelling redness, so for me around the chin and nose area mostly. I use the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory for brightening my under eye and it works really well! Before all of these face products I do use a primer of sorts; The Body Shop Instablur which is so, so great. It smoothes out my complexion a bit and mainly just creates a smoother surface to but concealer/foundation over. It also reduces the amount of shine on your face which is really good. I only need two brushes in my routine and they are the Real Techniques Buffing Brush for foundation and concealer and the Real Techniques Multi-Task Brush for powder and occasional blush.
After all of this I will usually go in for eyeliner and mascara. I don't wear eyeliner everyday but do love the look of it. Winged eyeliner can be trial and error so if I'm not bothered then I'll just go for the Maybelline Rocket Mascara which arrived in the post not too long ago. It's the best mascara I've tried, it's really volumnising, lengthening and it's a very black colour. The eyeliner I use is the e.l.f liquid liner which is really cheap and does the job. I'm used to using a liquid eyeliner so it's pretty easy to use most of the time. In the past I have never been one for blush as I've never really tried it, but I bought the Hot Mama Shadow/Blush from The Balm and think the effect on my cheeks is really pretty, acting as a bit of a highlighter too.
Hope you enjoyed reading into my everyday make-up routine! xx
