Everyday Makeup Routine

Despite this being a beauty blog, and my everyday makeup routine seems like an obvious post choice I have only written it once before! It's definitely something I'd like to write more off since I change up my makeup routine fairly regularly as I alternate products a lot more since I seem to acquire a lot more beauty products since my addiction is now spiralling out of control! Anyway, lets get right into it!

So I actually use two primers (both of which are smashbox) as they each cater to my two main skincare problems. So I first use the Smashbox Pore Minimising Primer and apply this on my nose, and cheekbone area which is where I have pores on my face. If you have oily skin you will love this product and I'd really recommend it for those of you with oily skin. I personally have dry skin so I only apply it in these areas, and make sure I work it into my skin. I then use the Smashbox Colour Correcting Primer in Adjust and I apply this on my cheeks where my keratosis pilaris is and on my nose (this works really well for sunburn too!) to neutralise my redness. This is one of my favourite beauty products as its hydrating, soothing and neutralises almost all of my redness! I then use the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer for my undresses and along my nose to highlight, and use the beauty blender to blend this out. If I have spots I will use my Makeup Forever Concealer to cover those, as this has the most coverage and lasts all day. I then either use the Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation or the Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Powder Foundation depending on how much coverage I want for the day and I apply both of these using the Tarte Airbuki as it really pacts and blends products much quicker and easier than my other brushes. If I want my skin to look a bit more glowy/dewy and have a softer effect I will also use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light. To sort out my eyebrows I use a spoile to brush them into the shape I desire and set using the Benefit Gimme Brow. If I choose to contour then I will use the Benefit Hoola which until recently I did not like, but now I find that it is so easy to work with and a comparable colour for almost all skin tones. If you are looking for a high end contour this would be my recommendation! If I choose to bronze I use the Marc Jacobs O Mega Bronze! which is a perfect bronzing shade.

If I do choose to do eyeshadow at the moment I am reaching for the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette as I love Too Faced eyeshadows because they are amensly pigmented and last all day. The palette has such a large range of colours available and looks to create! If you love neutrals this is most definitely a palette for you! I then use the Shu Uemera Eyelash Curlers to curl my lashes and then use Lancome Definicils Mascara which I recently purchased and am loving! It separates each and every lash, and creates length so easily without clumping or faking. (I actually prefer this to the Benefit They're Real!) As for fragrance I have been using the Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb! and for brushes I have been using my adored Zoeva brushes!

So I hope you enjoyed this post, I'd love to hear what your favourite products are in your makeup routine! Also very exciting news - I'm having my blog professionally designed and I'm super excited for it to be live, so watch this space!
