Every Day Make-Up Routine

Every Day Make-Up Routine

I have developed somewhat of a make-up routine lately and I thought I would gather all of my most-reached for products to do a post on it. It's quite a rarity for me to fall in to a routine with make-up so I wanted to grab the opportunity to blog about it! I mean, these products must be doing something right if I'm reaching for them every day, right?

So here are the contents of my make-up bag at the moment...

Foundation: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B30 - a nice lightweight foundation that has a fairly decent coverage in my opinion. I wore it today without any concealer and I do have a few blemishes, so I think that says a lot.

Concealer: MAC Moisture Cover NW20 - for the days when my skin needs extra help! I also use the under my eyes most days, as it is the only concealer lately that doesn't make my under eye area look dry.

Eyebrows: MAC Brow Gel in Clear - seriously running low on the stuff, I use it every day without fail to keep my eyebrows in place.

Blusher: Illamasqua 'Ambition' - I'm all about shimmery blushers at the moment!

Highlight: Dior Ambre Diamond - I use this on my cheekbones and down the centre of the nose. I also dab my MAC pencil brush in to the lighter section of this to apply to my inner corner of the eyes.

Eye Primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion

Eyeshadow: MAC Sable or MAC All That Glitters - it's usually one of these two at the moment! A quick one eyeshadow look is something I am really loving lately.

Eyeliner: Collection 2000 Extreme Wear Felt Pen Liner

Eyelash Curler: Shu Uemura (as always!)

Mascara: L'Oreal Volume Million Lash Luminzer

Lips: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Chance or Dior Rouge Serum - both moisturising and easy to wear!

Do you have a make-up routine? Or do you change it up every day?
