Everyday Make Up

Leave a Comment

Hello hello :) Today I am sharing with you the products I use on my face for my everyday make up look.
It's nothing too exciting as I work in an office 9-5 Mon-Fri so cannot be adventurous however if you are after a 'Plain Jane' look then I might be able to help :)

So I am quite pale and for my day look I always keep my foundation as closely matched to my skin tone as possible. I use the Rimmel Match Perfection in shade 100 (Ivory). This foundation gives a great coverage without my skin feeling too cakey and lasts me the entire working day. I use my MAC 188 brush to apply it which makes it easy to blend on - I only need a small pump for full face!

For my concealer I use two products - Erase Paste by Benefit which I dab onto my dark circles before I apply my foundation and then on top of my foundation I use Trick and Treatment by Soap & Glory which completely eradicates my dark circles. I've used Erase Paste for years and although it helps conceal at first, I found myself having to reapply by lunchtime, but since using trick or treatment on top of my foundation I haven't looked back! Reviews for this may be mixed however I am totally in love with this product as for me, it works like a dream at covering my eye bags!

For contouring and adding a bit of glow to my vampire-esque skin tone I use my Bourjois Delice de Poudre. IT SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE - need I say more!? But seriously it gives a lovely glow and for my pale skin doesn't look too 'orange'. I ensure I blend it in enough to make it look as natural as possible and it leaves a lovely shimmer on my face.

Ok now on to my blush... I natural get rosy cheeks but I still like to apply a little blush for work. I normally choose a pink tone and have currently been using my MAC powder blush in the colour Lovecloud. This is a lovely light pink which looks really nice and natural for my skin tone.

Onto my eyes - now I keep my eyes verrrrrry simple for my every day look and only use a smudge of eyeliner, a lick of mascara and fill in my brows. For eyeliner I use my ModelsOwn kohl pencil in black. It doesn't budge all day and its nice and creamy so blends easily on the eye. I use Lancome Hypnose Doll eyes waterproof mascara in black for my lashes and only apply it once! Don't want too much lash drama! For my eyebrows I have, and always will, use Illamasqa Eyebrow Cake in the shade Motto. This is used on my eyebrows all day everyday- no matter what occasion! For the day I used it dry and lightly define and fill in my eyebrows and if I'm going out or want a bit of eyebrow drama I mix it with a little water for a more paint-like consistency- this eyebrow paint is the tits and last me a whole YEAR! Total make up bag staple for me.

And lastly for my lips I use Rosy Lips Vaseline to keep my lips hydrated and soft with the 'rosy' colour adding a subtle tone thats not too OTT for the workplace :)

 That's how it all looks together:

Thanks for reading guys :)
