What's On My Face? // Everyday Make Up Routine

What's On My Face? // Everyday Make Up Routine

I am a woman of routine and habits. Waking up early every day to get to work on time means during the week I have very little time to experiment with the bundle of make-up I own; so I always reach for my usual Holy Grail products that I know can do me no wrong.

I thought I’d share some of my favourite products that I find easy and quick to apply for those weekdays where I have no time to make a huge effort, but still want to look somewhat acceptable.

Obviously the first thing I reach for in the morning is my Maybelline – Baby Skin primer (which won my Ultimate Drugstore Primer Battle) I apply a small amount of this all over my face and down my neck to keep my foundation in place throughout the day.

My favourite foundation is by Supercover Professional Make Up. (Read my review here) This is great to use when in a rush because it applies to easily and gives me an even, flawless coverage in seconds. I've done a whole blog post on this product so give it a read for more details.

I then apply my Maybelline – Eraser Eye Concealer under my eyes to get rid of those dark circles and to hopefully make me look somewhat awake. When all I want to do is creep back into bed and get under the duvet. With a light dust of Ben Nye – Banana Powder my concealer is set.

I know contouring isn’t a part of everyone’s everyday routine but since I’ve found a really simple and practical method it takes no time at all. Again I use my Supercover foundation but this time I reach for shade 28 which is around 3 shades darker than my skin tone. I apply this to the usual places (Hollows of my cheeks, jaw, nose and forehead) and blend this in using my elf blush brush. I then go over this with Bourjois - Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder (the one that looks like a bar of chocolate) and this warms up my skin tone.

I know most people do their eye make-up BEFORE applying their foundation but I just find this method works best for me. I keep the eyes pretty simple. Using my  MUA - Intense Colour Eyeliner Pencil in black and run this across my lower waterline. To set this in place and stop it smudging it lightly apply a thin line of Soap & Glory – Supercat liquid eyeliner pen underneath (review here). Next time for mascara, this is where I think I go a little over the top.. I use a combination of Benefit - They're Real / Rimmel London - Wonderfull Mascara / Soap and Glory - Thick and Fast HD Mascara and I LOVE the final result this gives me.
