Beauty: Day By Day

I'm feeling a but under the weather this week folks... Hence the blog about my daily make up routine. I'd much rather it this way than you seeing pics of my rudolph-esque sniffly red nose. It's totally ridiculous.

Having to get up at ridiculous o'clock for work I feel like I've perfected my make up routine... I follow my routine religiously, It barely takes me ten minutes now which is always handy!

On special occasions I'd probably wear more but on a daily basis i stick to these nine products.

* Maybeline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation - Ivory 
*Maybeline Superstay 24 Hours Powder - Ivory
*Bourjois Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder - 51
*Bourjois Blush - 33 Lilas D'or
* Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara - Black
*New Cid I-Groom Eyebrow Pencil - One Colour Suits All
*MAC Brow Set - Clear
*L'oreal Colour Riche Lipstick- 102 Praline Beige

I love Maybeline foundation and feel the Ivory colour suits my fair skin tone best. I use both the dream satin liquid foundation first, overlaid with the superstay powder. I only overlay because although the liquid foundation covers brilliantly my skin can sometimes feel a bit dewy... The matte powder foundation eliminates this and leaves a lovely finish.

I've learnt over the years that a little bit of blush goes a long way...& this blush comes equipped with its own mini brush ensuring you don't over step the mark. Delice De Poudre Bronzing Powder is great for highlighting my cheekbones and leaving a sunkissed look. I use it quite regularly but it lasts for absolutely ages! Always a bonus.  

Eyebrows! I have major issues with eyebrows, they're always the first thing i notice on a person... Weird i know... I like them even, symmetrical & super slick. I use New Cid I-Groom pencil to define & thicken my brows, this comes in a taupe colour which suits all hair colous. They're then smoothed with MAC brow set in clear. I think together these two are a force to be reckoned with! 

My lashes are defined with Rimmel Scandaleyes mascara... And lots of it!!! The more the better if you ask me.

Because i normally focus on my eyes when applying make up I tend to keep it quite simple with my lipstick choice. Naturally my lips haven't got a great deal of colour to them (especially during winter) this Praline Beige from L'oreal is still subtle yet substantial enough to wear on a daily basis.

I'm hoping I feel a bit better soon, I'm starting to feel very sorry for myself! 

Thanks for taking a look. Lots of love.
