Happy Sunday everyone, today is the first Sunday in forever where i don’t have work eek! Tomorrow i am off to university and today i am spending time with all the people i love. I am seeing my grandma this morning, then going to the football with my dad and then going to my boyfriends for tonight. I’m going to miss everyone so much, but at least you guys will still be with me eh (; oooh also, there will be another ‘university adventure’ post up after i have moved in, i know you guys have been enjoying this series, thanks so much!
So whilst i was running my giveaway, a post that everyone wanted seemed to be an updated everyday make-up routine. I did one of these when i started my blog back in July, and with my recent obsession with my Stila palette, i thought it was finally time to do an updated everyday make-up routine which features the e.l.f Flawless Eyeshadow Palette instead! I will forever be a brown/taupey eyeshadow girl, but with the purchase of my first MAC product from a blog sale (MAC eyeshadow in Parfait Amour), a little bit of colour has been let in.
In the mornings i love to cleanse my face with my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, after this i moisturise my face with my trusty Olay Beauty Fluid to create a nice smooth and refreshed base.
Now for my face, after cleansing and moisturising, i apply the new love of my life, the L’Oreal Lumi Maqique foundation in shade C1 Rose Pearl all over my face with my Real Techniques Stippling brush. After this i apply my concealer, the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, under my eyes, underneath my nose and on any imperfections. To set my face i use the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in the shade transparent , and use my e.l.f powder brush to buff this in. To finish off my face, i like to apply my Natural Collection Blush in Pink Cloud with my Ruby and Millie face brush.
I then start on my eyes, first doing my brows, using the Sleek Brow Kit in Light and then the e.l.f wet gloss lash and brow mascara to set my brows. For the eyes, i apply my Maybelline 24hour Colour Tatoo in permanent taupe to the outer 2/3 of my eye. I then use the e.l.f Flawless Eyeshadow Palette, in tantalising taupe, using the base, lid and crease colours all over my eye for a natural everyday taupey look, with some of the crease/line colour on my lashline. I then like to smudge in some of MAC’s Parfait Amour( a gorgeous purple) to make things a bit more exciting. The gorgeous purple adds a nice amount of colour and goes well with the warm palette. I also like to line my upper lash line with the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. I then use my sample of the Lancome Hypnose Star on my lashes.
For my lips i love to use my Blistex Medplus, followed by my new Revlon Lipgloss from Poundland in Coral Reef! (post with swatches here). Although i don’t think i was wearing it in the photo, oops ahah!
Hope you enjoyed this, i know not much has changed, but this post was requested 🙂
What do you like to use on your face everyday?
