Thursday again already! Can almost smell the weekend now.
I believe that I did every day makeup routine post last summer so I thought I would update you all on what I am currently using – I know some of it is exactly the same!
I have also reached 100 followers this week so keep an eye out for a giveaway coming up shortly.
The ordinary foundation
This is a new discovery and I have done a whole blog post – which you can find here! I don’t usually wear a power with this as I have fairly dry skin at the moment and it seems to make it looked terrible. The foundation coverage lasts most of the day but I do re-do my makeup if I am out in the evening.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer
I purchased this when my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer ran out suddenly and I couldn’t get to Boots. It was very much an impulse purchase but I do like it and it is running low already. I will re-purchase as I feel that I need it in my makeup bag although I do want to try the Revolution one. This costs £8.99 and claims to be anti-fatigue which I am not sure about but on days where I am having a low makeup day or good skin, I almost use it as a substitute for foundation.
Contour … Highlight and Bronze
Bleach London Contour – Nuity – bones 2
I have never really been good with contour and I find most things too dark and obvious. However, I purchased this following a recommendation from YouTuber Soph Does Nails. She has never light skin and said that this worked a treat. I agree… I purchased this along with the Contour Brush from Bleach London and I use it most days, even for work. I have a few other products that have and I want to try but this is too good to let go off. It is only £4.50 too from Cult Beauty.
Clinque Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight
I actually received this as a free gift with a Clinque order a little while ago, so I do only have the mini version. I didn’t really know how to use it when I first recieved it but it is becoming my go to highlighter. It is so easy to apply to the right areas and then I simply use my finger to blend in. It is a cream formula but it blends well with the powder contour. When this runs out I will buy the full-sized version which is £20.00. They also do a contour stick the same as this which I am also keen to try out.
Collection Bronze Glow Mosaic Powder
I use this every day to warm up my face before I leave the house. I keep it in my handbag rather than with the rest of my makeup and use it throughout the day if needed. I have spoken about this before on my blog and I am now hitting pan. It is only £2.99 at boots and really does give a nice sun-kissed glow. I don’t tan my face so when I have self-tanned, I often need something to help me match in and this works perfectly. The different shades help it look natural on the skin.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara and L’oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara
I have spoken about both of these products on here before and I am still loving them. They are both under £10.00 and I use them daily, well one or the other. They can be built up and work well for both work and nighttime. I have very sensitive eyes and these both cause no problems.
Clinque High Impact Waterproof Mascara
Towards the end of last year, I posted on Twitter that I needed a good waterproof mascara for my Grandma’s funeral and this was the suggestion I received. I wear it every time I know I am going to cry (sad film, funeral etc.) when it is heavily raining or just when I know I will have a long day. It stays put, like it doesn’t move or run at all. It is slightly more expensive at £19.00 but it does last well.
Too Faced – ‘Chocolate Bar’ eye shadow palette
I purchased the small version of this in the January Sales as I am not used to wearing eye-shadow, I decided it would be good to try it out. It smells so good, it always makes me crave chocolate but the colours are also very good for an every day look and can be built up for those after work drinks or date nights when needed. It is a product which I am slowly enjoying using.
Normally, I wear a Mac Nude Lip as an everyday shade. My current favourite is Velvet Teddy but I will do a separate post on my current Mac Lipstick Collection.
What is your every day makeup routine?
Love, Minnie xoxo
