I thought today I would do a blog about my everyday makeup routine. I’m not going to lie I love days where I don’t wear makeup and I can just let my skin breath. When I have these days I usually give my face a really deep cleanse and then apply a thick moisturiser and it does wonders. For the most part, though I do like to put on a little bit of concealer and some mascara just so I don’t look completely sleep deprived. On the days when I want a bit more coverage the products I use are fairly basic and I tend to stick with the same thing.
So here is my everyday makeup routine:
I always start by moisturising my face. I usually do this after I have cleaned my face and I let it sink it before I start my makeup.
For the primer, I like the Benefit Porefessional Primer. I will usually just apply this to my t-zone and use any remaining product on the rest of my face.
As for foundation, I am loving the Estee Lauder Double Wear. I apply this all over my face with a damp sponge.
I will then go in with a light concealer and apply that under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose and my chin and any blemishes I may have.
Once I have blended everything out I go in with a translucent powder over my whole face.
For contouring and bronzer, I usually use NARS laguna. I will go in with a smaller brush to contour then take a small fluffy powder brush and just blend it out with some more bronzer.
I don’t always wear blush but when I do it is Rimmel matte blush in 002 blushing berry. I will just apply this slightly above the bronzer and on the apples of my cheeks.
Then for a highlighter, I have been loving MAC’s Mineralise Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle.
Once I have finished my face I will spray it with MAC Fix +.
Eyes are the one thing I keep very simple. I don’t wear eyeshadow everyday only for special occasions.
For mascara, I have been using Benefit They’re Real and apply a few coats of that.
Then I will just brush through my brows and fill them in with Benefit Gimme Brows, nothing too fancy.
As for lips, I will usually apply a lip balm before I start my makeup just so my lips aren’t dry when it comes time to apply my lipstick. At the moment I have found myself reaching for Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolour in Seduction.
And that is it!
It seems like a lot when you write it all down but honestly it isn’t that much and it usually only takes me 10 minutes or so to put it on.
Hope you enjoyed today’s post! Let me know what your go -to everyday products are.
