Before putting any make up on my face I always prep and prime my face ready for the make up to be placed. To begin with I use my Anatomicals facial spritz to freshen up my face, then I use my L’Oreal hydra genius moisturizer, this product has become a fave of mine and you can read more about this product in my NEW IN SKINCARE FAVOURITES. I then start to prime my face using the soap and glory hocus focus illuminator.
The foundation I have been using on a everyday basis is my new found love L’Oreal infallible total cover matte foundation, although high coverage foundation can sometimes feel to heavy on my face this is really lightweight and blends with ease, to blend my foundation I use my real techniques mircle sponge, I always dampen this with a spray of water. The concealers I then use to make disappear red, purple or blemish prone spots is the collection lasting perfection, in shades: green, lemon and fair 1. I then use the Bourjois radiance reveal concealer in shade 01.
Contour has got to be my favourite step in my make up routine, I love to use cream products then powder on top, the contour stick I am currently in love with is the Maybelline master contour v-shape duo stick in shade medium, I use the contour shade daily however I haven’t used the highlight shade before, because I feel nothing can beat my benefit wattsup highlight stick. I apply this to all the high points on my face then go in with powders to set my contour and highlight, I use my mini hoola bronzer to contour, then my goddess of love baked highlighter in shade golden goddess. To set my make up I use the MAC select sheer pressed powder in shade NC5. To bronze and give my face a bit of life I use the Bourjois mat illusion bronzing powder.
Eyebrows make my face feel complete, since purchasing my Anastasia Beverly hills brow pomade I haven’t used anything else, I have the shade soft brown, I love this products and can’t see my self moving away from it anything soon that’s for sure. Setting my eyebrows is something I never used to do everyday but since getting the L’oreal brow artist plumper it’s something I cant leave without doing.
The most recent purchase of make up has been the Benefit roller lash, I had the mini version a while back but that was gone within a week or so, so I was unsure weather or not to buy the bigger version, but I gave in and I am so glad I did, this gives my eyelashes the boost they need for a full look.
Lip colour is something that I change on a daily basis, trying out new colour, having it match my outfit and making sure its season appropiate. But today I have gone back to a classic for me, MAC velvet teddy, ahhhh doesn’t everyone love this lipstick? It is one of those lipstick that work for everyone and suits every outfit…
I hope you enjoyed my first make up routine, I’m thinking for a post in July maybe a skincare or evening routine, let me know in the comments if you would like that.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post,
