My Daily Make-up

It’s not very often I do beauty posts and I do consider myself as a fashion, style and beauty blogger so it’s about time that changed. Today I decided to share with you my more or less, daily make-up. I wear a face of make-up pretty much every day – I wont if I know I’m not leaving the house, going somewhere were no-one will see me, going to the gym or on holiday abroad! The rest of the time, I have to have at the very least some mascara on.

First is the base. I tend to apply concealer first on any bigger blemishes, around my nose where it’s fairly red and under my eyes with my ring finger. I then do the foundation. On good skin days I’ll go for the BB cream – this one is made for oily skin and is a newer purchase of mine. On not so good days I’ll use my Avon liquid foundation. I’ve tried a few drugstore foundations but always found myself going back to this one, I guess it just works best for me! I normally apply this with the Real Techniques Stippling brush then going over it with my beauty blender dupe which I got from TK Maxx just to get rid of any of the brush marks and smooth it all over. I then go and finish it off by giving a light dusting of powder with my Real Techniques powder brush.

Next I add a bit of colour to my cheeks, If I apply foundation, I always need a bit of blusher. Right now, I’m loving Benefits Coralista! I apply it with the Real Techniques contour brush and then, if I want even more colour I’ll dive in with the Bourjous chcocolate bronzer, using the same brush defining my cheekbones and warming up my face.

Finally, the eyes. I shape my eyebrows using a lash and brow brush from The Body Shop and fill them slightly with the Soap and Glory brow pencil – I don’t like to go too scouse brow! I then curl my lashes with the curler which I have no idea where it’s from and apply my favourite mascara from Avon. I think it’s the Super Full Lashes one?! I’m a bit confused by this mascara because I think I prefer it more now it’s dried out a little bit – it seems to tug on the lashes a bit more. If I feel like it I will put a was of eye shadow on using one of my MUA palettes or my 24hr tattoo cream eyeshadow by Maybelline, but most of the time I don’t bother!

Let me know what you think of these beauty posts and what else you’d like to see me do 🙂
