Hey there x

Today I decided to share with you all my everyday makeup routine which takes up to 10 minutes tops for when I actually want to leave the house looking presentable.

Starting off with a base: I use the Body shop Instablur primer, I use this all over my face to help my makeup last all day and minimise pores, I apply this straight after cleaning my face using my hands.

Next, I use the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay- in- Place Foundation in the shade Pale Almond, I apply this using the beauty blender, after dotting the foundation all over my face for an even application. The only thing that bothers me about this foundation is the fact that it doesn’t come with a pump, it is a great foundation, it counteracts redness and hides some blemishes and imperfections.

This is then followed by concealer depending on the blemishes,
whether they are still showing through the foundation and underneath my eyes. I use the Vichy Dermablend in the shade 25, even though it is in a stick formula it is still very creamy and easy to blend.  On a day to day basis, I set my base with the NYX HD finishing powder in translucent all over the face.

Then I just fill in my brows using the Benefit goof proof brow pencil in shade 4 and apply a few coats of mascara using the Fairydrops mascara.

To add dimension back to my face I slightly contour using the ABH contour palette  with a light hand applying it with a Morphe M435 brush , then I apply my soap and glory solar bronzer in a 3 motion , add a pop of blush and some Pixi highlighter in Santorini Sunset on the top of my cheekbones and below my brow bone mostly.

For lips I usually go for neutral tones such as pinks and nudes, today I used the Rimmel London lip liner in Indian pink to line my lips and Kate Moss in 54 rock n roll nude on top of it and then finishing off with some Gerard Cosmetics slay all day setting spray and you are ready for the long day ahead.

Here’s the finished product, hope you like it 🙂 let me know in the comments below x
