'Daily' makeup Routine


































For today's post I thought I would share with you all my 'daily makeup routine' however firstly I would like to take the 'daily' out of it since I don't actually wear makeup everyday, I probably only wear makeup about twice a week but lack of a better title I decided to stick with this one because if I were to wear makeup everyday this is the routine I would do.

Before any makeup
Firstly I wash my face with my Dr organic tea tree face wash,which featured in my June Favourites post which you can read here, since I have really oily skin I find that this removes all the oil from around my nose which helps my make up last a lot longer.

I ran out of my regular primer recently so since then I've been using the Balance 'Instant Effect Wrinkle Filler' to act as a base for my foundation as I find this also smooths over any pores and makes my makeup look smoother. For under and around my eyes I currently use the Dr Organic 'Virgin Coconut Oil Eye Perfect' which I have also been using before I go to bed at night which has done wonders for the dark circles under my eyes.

For my foundation I'm currently using Rimmel London 'Match Perfect' in shade 100 Ivory, I first apply it with my Real Techniques liquid foundation brush and after I use my Real Techniques Buffing brush which blends my makeup really well and makes it look very natural. I then set my foundation with Rimmel London's Stay Matte powder in Transparent which helps keep my foundation on for longer and get's rid of any shininess for this I use my ModelsOwn powder brush.

Next to give my cheek bones some definition I do a light contouring using Maybelline 'Dream Sun' triple bronzer for brunettes which gives a very natural colour I apply this using my Real Techniques contouring brush, if the lines are still too harsh I buff them out with my buffing brush. For a blush I'm currently using the pastel pink blush in the Barry M 'Glow' palette which give my cheeks a healthy rose flush without looking too obvious, and for under £10 the palette is really amazing if you want some natural colours but don't want to spend insane amounts on the Naked 3 palette.

I also use the Barry M palette for my eyes and eyebrows, I start by using the matte beige colour all over my eye after I add the shimmer beige all over as well and then to finish the eyeshadow I add the pink shimmer in the inner corner of my eyes and in the middle to make them brighter. For my eyebrows I use the darkest brown to fill them in using my Modelsown lip brush I also put this colour on my bottom lashes using my Real Techniques detailer brush, I then use the white shadow as a highlight which I just apply underneath my eyebrows and over my nose.



Depending on the day and how much time I have I use the Colour X-pert liquid eyeliner from Max Factor which is the easiest liquid eyeliner I have ever used and I finish with Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

When I'm doing this as a night time look I'll use a Barry M lip pencil in a dark rose colour which for some reason does not have the shade named on it. How annoying.
