My dresser is overflowing with all kinds of makeup and beauty products, the fact that we have made the spare room into a "makeup room" says it all really. When it comes to my everyday makeup I like a simple routine therefore I use mainly the same beauty products day to day. I switch between certain products however when I am getting ready in the morning I like to use makeup which is familiar to me, I know how to use them and how they look on me and I know I that I will be happy with the look once I am done.
What I want in an everyday makeup look.
I have never been a morning person therefore when I come to do my everyday routine I reach for makeup which I am very used to, which I know will create the makeup look I want and will last the day. Simple is definitely what I go for in an everyday makeup look, I like fresh glowing skin and bright light eyes, all created from a quick routine.
For an everyday foundation it has to be a medium coverage with more of a dewy finish, and of course has to be comfortable and last the day. Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation is an everyday makeup staple for me, it is a medium to build-able coverage and gives a refreshing hit in the morning. Having dryer skin the dewy finish gives a healthy glow and on me this beauty lasts all day. Concealer for me has to have similar features to my foundation, a nice coverage without being to thick which will not crease during the day. One of the main concealers I reach for in my morning routine is the Urban Decay Naked Weightless Concealer, possibly one of my all time favourite makeup products ever, this is extremely light weight, great coverage and very comfortable and long lasting. Bronzer is a particular makeup product I could not live without, I really like the Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze. Being a drugstore product I love the quality, this is very pigmented, it is matte and gives a natural bronzed look. Highlight is an absolute must, even in my everyday makeup I have to have my glow and find MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle perfect for day time, It is neither too golden or to silver and gives the most beautiful natural glow!
Everyday eye makeup I love to be bright and fresh which is why I always reach out for the Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette I use a mix of the gold shades all over the lid which enhance the blues of my eyes making them look bright with a little shimmer. Rather than using a gel eyeliner every day I very often opt for a pencil instead, they are quicker to apply and look softer and more appropriate for daytime. I always use the MAC Eye Kohl in Costa Riche as it is less harsh than a black and the rich warm tone also brings out the blue in my eyes. I very rarely wear false eyelashes for day time unless I have a special occasion, I love wearing them and the effect they give which I why I use Maybelline The Falsies Mascara. This mascara makes my eyelashes look super thick and long and I find this very comfortable.
Eyebrows are so important when it comes to any makeup look, whether you are wearing a "no-makeup makeup look" or going "full glam" brows bring shape and structure to your face. I will never wear bare brows so I fill them in every day using the Anastasia Brow Wiz as I find this really quick and easy to use, the pencil is very fine and precise so I can create a really full looking and structured brow. After all of the work I put into filling in my eyebrows I like to set the hairs in place all day, the Maybelline Brow Drama is perfect for quickly running through the brows to keep hairs laying securely. As the brow drama is pigmented you can use this just on its own as it will add the look of darker thicker brows.
