My Everyday Makeup Routine


Happy Sunday everyone! It's absolutely horrible outside, and yet somehow one of my friends and I ended up going for a walk along Aberystwyth Sea Front. I can tell you we came back missing feeling in our fingers and toes! Plus we got stung by hail, ouch! Anyway, I'm wrapped up in my onesie finally writing my 'Everyday Makeup Routine', I absolutely love reading these posts from other people and how they achieve them. So I thought it only right I join in and give it a go. Prepare yourselves for a longggg blog post!

So my first step is to moisturize using my Garnier Moisture Match. My skin is prone to being a little dry so this helps my skin look it's best. Next I apply my new favourite foundation (once the moisturizer has fully absorbed) Maxfactor Face Finity 3in1 foundation, which I have recently reviewed (you can read that here) and blend blend blend. It gives an all over, even coverage. I have the option of adding concealer here if I have any pesky blemishes. 

Next I move on to my eyebrows. I think eyebrows are a very personal thing. One eyebrow 'style' doesn't suit everyone. For me, I prefer the well groomed classic style of eyebrow (what am I even going on about). Anyway, to achieve this, I use my MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow kit. Using a angled brush, I fill in my eyebrows with the dark brown shade, shown above left. 

Next I move onto my favourite part of doing my makeup, the eyes. For everyday, I opt for a light eye makeup look. Using my MUA Underssed too palate and apply the light brown shade (Labelled one) all over my eye lid using an eyeshadow brush and blend. Then I apply the champagne shade (labelled two) to the inner corners of my eyes and under the eyebrows. I then line my lash line with matte black (labelled three) using a small brush (shown above). 


To complete my eyes, I add my Maxfactor Masterpiece Max mascara and line using my Miss SPorty Studio Lash eyeliner. For my cheekbones, I'm not really a big fan of blusher, so I just stick to bronzer. I use my Sleek Contour kit contouring shade on my cheekbones and the champagne shimmer just above. For my lips, I tend to wear nude shades in the daytime. My favourite of the moment is my LorealParis Collection Privee lipstick by Cheryl. Then I simply finish off my face with a dusting of powder.

Wallah! That is my complete routine for my everyday makeup. I tend to stick to the same routine for a while and then change it up when I get bored. Hope you enjoyed my first ever (rather long) makeup 'How To' post! I'm thinking of doing a similar post for an 'Night Out' makeup look, so let me know what you think! As always..
