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 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.
