BEAUTY // My Everyday Make-Up Routine

We all have that one make up look we use as our 'every day' face. Mine is the most basic of all basics however I thought I'd give you a little insight into what I pick out of my make up bag everyday to go on my face.


My look is very simple and quick- mainly for convenience reasons! I have quite a long commute to work so I'd rather stay in bed an extra ten minutes than do fancy make up for work. I usually do a winged eyeliner with a bright lipstick and basic foundation routine then I'm off out! Here are my every day make up picks that I highly recommend...

FOUNDATION I'm very pale and I have a lot of redness in my cheeks and nose area. My skin is usually oily/combination. My current foundation is Revlon Colorstay Foundation. I like that it gives me enough coverage to go without concealer. I hate having a full face of make up on at work so I try to avoid concealer as much as possible! I do go over this with a light brushing of a translucent powder but I have hundreds that I switch between, hence why it's not featured in my everyday routine!

BLUSHER For every day, I just use blusher rather than fully contouring my face (this again is due to laziness, I think I look much better when contoured, highlight etc). I love cream blushers as they just glide on like a dream and they don't react weirdly with my foundation. Current cheek colour love is anything from the Topshop cream blush make up range - such good quality for a bargain!

 
EYELINER
You know I love my Lush Independent liquid eyeliner right? I don't think I'll ever use another eyeliner it is honestly that amazing. I just use it on my lid and do a winged liner, it's an easy way to add something a bit interesting to a somewhat boring make up look haha! I'm also a pro at doing them now (as I do it everyday) so I can do it in 30 seconds!

MASCARA I didn't want to buy into the hype of Benefit's Roller Lash but I have to say it is rather good and I much prefer it over They're Real. It gives my lashes a bit of lift without looking ridiculous which is perfect for this kind of simple, every day look.


LIPSTICK This is the thing I change the most about my every day make up. I love a bright pop of colour and I have a huge selection to chose from! I love Lush's Decisive (it's a deep cherry red), Mac's Rebel (a dark berry red) or the Revlon lip butters as they add colour and moisture. I can't choose just one!

What's your every day make up routine? Is it simple like mine or much more effort put in than lazy old me?

  1. Love this post, I had never heard of the Lush eyeliner before but I’m really intrigued by this :) My everyday makeup routine is so lazy just a bit of mascara in a morning - but I do want to start making more of an effort hehe.
