Everyday Makeup



Most days, I put things on my face. Usually they're kind of the same things. Here they are.

Base

At the moment, I am totally in love with the L'Oreal Infallible 24h-Matte foundation. It applies so smoothly and genuinely lasts all day - even when I cycle to work. That's a massive win in my books.

The thing is, I have dry skin so you know, not exactly the target audience for a mattifying foundation. To add a bit of glow, before applying the foundation I use a bit of Freedom's Strobe Cream. It smells lovely and really does combat the dreaded "flat" look.

Cheeks

I pretty much contour everytime I wear make-up which might seem extreme to those of you blessed with chiseled cheekbones, but, before judging, spare a thought for us hamster cheeked babes. My go to is the Sleek Face Contour Kit. I rarely use the highlighter (it's nice, I just rarely use highlighter in general.) The bronze shade is totally matte and the perfect shade for those of us on the paler end.

I switch my blusher up on a regular basis and rarely use the same shade for more than a few days on the run. That said, my faves at the moment are Mac's Pretty Peony (which I got in Vietnam). It's a beautiful pale pink shade that gives just the right "been out in the cold" look without you having to actually get cold. Next up, Mac's Coppertone which, surprise surprise, is a slight copper-brown shade and super lovely. At the more budget end, Natural Collection blushers are insanely good for £1.99 and you can obtain a similar effect as these two Mac numbers with: Pink Cloud and Peach Melba.

Eyes

Much like the cheeks, I switch my eyeshadow up on the regs. That said, I pretty much always gravitate towards a copper/bronze/gold shadow. Without a doubt my most used shadow of all time is Mac's Sable (which I also brought in Vietnam!) I also love Indian Wood painpot (also from Mac) for a quick and easy golden bronze lid that looks way more put together than the effort deserves.

I'm a big fan of drugstore mascara and typically find it to be better than most high end one's I've tried. Despite that, I'm not usually that loyal when it comes to repurchasing. At the moment I am using Maybelline The Falsies and it's a firm favorite. I do have naturally long lashes so I find it easier to get mascara to work for me, but, this one is particularly good. It just does what it say's it'll do and what's not to like about that?

I've been wearing liquid eyeliner for aboooout 12 years. That makes me feel super old, but, it's a necessary evil as I feel like you should know just how long I've been using the Collection fast Stroke eyeliner. it's easy to use, super cheap and stays black all day. I've tried others, sure, but this is one I will always come back to!

Brows

Since I brought the Freedom Brow Pomade in Blonde I have not used a single other product on my brows and honestly can't see that changing for a while. I'm a bit rubbish with my brows and before this little £5 beauty came into my life they used to be the part of my face that took the most time to fix. Now, they literally take seconds and stay put all day. This is a game changer.

Lips

I find I do actually stick to one or two lip shades according to the season. At the moment I've been loving Mac's Brave and Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush (which, despite the annoyingly long name, I have dedicated an entire post to here).

So, there you go, all the things I put on my face most days. Oh, and in case you're interested, here's my face:
