My Current Everyday Makeup

My Current Everyday Makeup

Back in February 2017, I did my current day to day makeup and today I thought it was about time I updated that for you. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you’ll know I’m much more of a clothes over makeup girl, and I’m not one to spend a fortune on high-end makeup, hence all the drugstore goodies! Nonetheless, I do like to treat myself from time to time..

My Current Everyday Makeup

My current base is Rimmels Lasting Finish Foundation in True Ivory alongside my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection concealer in Fair. I use this concealer both under my eyes and for blemishes. If I want a lighter feeling concealer I’ll reach for Rimmels Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory. I find Rimmels foundation to be a great, cheap foundation for everyday wear. It’ll last a good 6-8 hours but any longer needs some touching up. Right now, this works perfectly for me as I’m usually only wearing makeup for half a day anyway!

Next step for me is always brows, and I’m still using Anastasia Beverly Hill Dipbrow Pomade in blonde nearly a year on! I recently had HD brows done and was advised to switch to pencil to fill in but I’d like to use this up first – I feel like it could easily last another year, well worth the price!

To give my face a bit of shape, the Benefit Hoola Bronzer is still a firm favourite of mine, it’s great for giving my whole face a bit of warmth! I then highlight with the Revolution Highlighter in Peach Lights. This is such a gorgeous highlighter, and for £3 it’s a real bargain too – I would definitely recommend for getting that all year round glow!

Usually, I won’t go for any eyeshadow, but if I do want a pop of colour I’ll reach for my Crown Brush Rose Gold Palette which has nearly every orangey/brown/red shade under the sun! For my lashes, I’ve been really loving the Givenchy Noir Interdit Mascara*. I was gifted this mascara at a blogging event last year and I’m really glad I was because I usually wouldn’t even give Givenchy makeup a look because of the price tag! This mascara gives the lashes such a lovely lengthen without being too heavy, perfect for every day.

If I want a lip to finish the lip, I’ve been loving MACs Mehr recently which is a beautiful slightly darker nude, matte, of course.

What are your current go-to’s for your daily makeup?
