I *love* reading other bloggers’ everyday makeup posts, so I figured I should create a similar blog post for others who enjoy reading these kinds of posts!
Welcome to my everyday makeup!
I start off my everyday look by using Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in 103 True Ivory. I absolutely love this foundation, as it’s got great coverage & I love the smell.
I then move on to my eyes. I recently purchased Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR in On and On Bronze, which I reviewed here & have been loving ever since! I love how long-lasting & versatile this eyeshadow is – it’s ideal for both day & night. When I’ve got a few extra minutes to get ready, I normally pick up my trusty Sleek i-Divine Palette in Storm, and use the medium-brown matte eyeshadow (that’s the 5th eyeshadow L-R on the bottom row) through my crease, which I think creates a lovely combination. I apply this using the brushes from my Models Own Neon 5 Piece Brush Set, which I really love – and is a bargain at just £10 for all 5 brushes! I then apply some Liquid Eyeliner by The Body Shop, which I must admit, is not my favourite eyeliner, as I find it quite tricky to use and doesn’t last all day on really hot/sweaty days. Finally, I apply a coat or two of Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express mascara, which I reviewed here – and that’s my eyes done!
I then apply Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in 010 Ivory underneath my eyes to get rid of any dark circles I may have – although foundation is normally enough to get rid of them. I apply L’Oreal True Match Blush in 140 Old Rose, which is a matte medium pink with slightly peachy undertones blush, to my cheeks. I use my Lancome Paris brush to do this. I got this brush free on a Lancome Paris offer, but I believe it’s similar to their Cheek Brush #6 (correct me if I’m wrong?). I then apply Bourjois Delice de Poudre in shade 51, which is their lighter shade, to my cheekbones, forehead and nose, and set it all in place with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent. Finally, I finish off my everyday makeup look with Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm!
