Everyday Makeup Routine.

Base & Face.
At the minute I'm dancing in between primers as I can't seem to stick to just one! Some days I use Benefit's Porefessional, then I use Steam Cream's Wendy pre makeup base but so far my favourite is proving to be Bare Mineral's Prime Time primer. It's a silicone based primer which is super easy to blend into my skin and mattifies ready for a day of wearing foundation. I only had a small sample in my Bare Minerals Get Started Kit and I will definately repurchase when I get a few more pennies in. When it comes to foundation, I like a full coverage and matte finish. To do this I apply No7's Beautifully Matte foundation mixed in with Seventeen's Stay Time to give me the complete coverage that I love. 

Before doing my eye makeup, I always start on my brows first! I use my trusty HD Brow & Eye Kit in shade 'Foxy'. Using the little angled brush makes it so easy to actually give my brows some shape - this is a kit I don't see me swapping for anything else! With me eyes, I tend to avoid eye shadow and keep it simple with a quick black liner flick using Seventeen's Wet Look Liner. It has a tiny nib perfect for creating a flick, but still gives a thick, matte black look. I'm all for trying out new mascaras but right not I'm sticking with my trusty favourites. I use my mini Roller Lash which is perfect for lengthening and volumising my lashes and I top that off with Rimmel's ScandalEyes mascara which is super thick and perfect for giving a dramatic look. 

If I've got more time to spend on my makeup, I'll add a few extras in too. I love using my Croydex Pedestel Mirror* which is perfect for applying my makeup due to it's double magnified side meaning I can get a close up of my look (not advised if having a bad skin day!) and it stands up easily for me to get my makeup done and get moving. If I have more time to focus on my makeup, I love using Benefit's Hoola bronzer and my new Rodial Instaglam* highlighter for a quick contour!

  6. I tend to go for "everything" everyday lol with the exception of bronzer, contour and highlight which I skip if I'm in an a hurry. But most days, I do a full base, blush, eyehadow, liner, brows, mascara, lipstick etc etc. :-)
