My Everyday Makeup

Hi! Today I will be talking about my usual makeup look, and the products I tend to use daily. Makeup is something I enjoy doing; I hope you will find this post useful...  


To begin with I will prime my face with The Body Shop Instablur primer. This primer gives a matte finish and makes my face feel extra smooth before I apply foundation. I apply this on my t-zone; my forehead, nose and chin. These are the areas that become the oiliest for me so I use the primer to try and prevent that. 

Tip: apply your primer in so that it flattens down any fine hairs that are on your face, insuring an easier foundation application. 


After applying the primer, I begin to use my No.7 Stay Perfect Foundation, I LOVE this foundation, It stays on extremely well throughout the day, without going weird and blotchy. You can have your skin matched to a colour in store which I think is quite useful. It also includes SPF 15, which is essential for protecting your skin. 

Once my foundation has been blended I go in with the Maybelline Instant Anti-Age concealer. I'm not sure if I agree with all the hype this concealer receives. I find that when I apply it under the eyes it can come off in flakes, which isn't what you want. Maybe this is only an issue for me though and you will enjoy this concealer, I don't know... 

I will go back to my complexion later on, however for now I finish up with a light dusting of the Collection Pressed Powder. This powder cost me £1.99, and I feel like it does it's job perfectly well for the low price. 


I have heard many beauty gurus say that eyebrows are the frame of the face, and arguably the most important aspect of applying makeup. This is why I like to try and make my eyebrows look presentable. First I use the Etude House Drawing Eye pencil. I like this pencil, on one end is the makeup and the other a handy spoolie which help to distribute the colour more evenly. 

After using the pencil I then go in with a clear mascara from Collection, nothing special, just to set my brows in place. 


Next is eyes. To prep the base I use the Too Faced Shadow Insurance eye primer. This acts as a base for the eye shadow and enhances the staying power and longevity. 

I wait a few seconds before cracking out my eye shadow palette of choice. Today I used the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette. I selected the colours down the left side for my natural look. The eye shadows actually have instructions as to where to apply them which I think is a great idea for beginners especially. The eye shadows are of great quality - I very much like this palette!

When I've finished applying eye shadow I coat my lashes in a generous amount of Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. Is this mascara good? Yes, of course. Is it worth all the hype? Um... I don't really think it is. I personally prefer the Benefit Rollerlash. However, this mascara does the job nicely.

Back to Base


I now return back to my complexion. First I apply the sculpting powder from my B. Sculpted Contour Kit (sorry about the disgusting state that it's in), followed by the highlighter from kit. After this I use my Innisfree Mineral Blusher to add some more colour to the look.


I don't use lip products everyday but today I decided to use my Astor lipstick (I don't know what type it is exactly). I purchased it while I was in Spain and I like it, however I'm not too sure about the longevity of the product. The colour is pretty though.

And that's it! My everyday makeup look from start to finish. I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope to write more soon...
