Hello my lovelies!
I always enjoy seeing what other people use in terms of make-up on a daily basis! I own so many products, I love seeing what other people do and how they use them because it helps inspire my daily routine. So without further ado, these are the basic products I use every day without fail, weekdays and weekends:
Estee Lauder Double Wear in Ecru 1N1 - MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW15 - MAC Select Cover Up in NW20
I oscillate between using Double Wear and Studio Fix depending on the condition of my skin - if I fancy a bit more coverage I go for Double Wear because of the longevity and the matte finish, but if I fancy a more bronzed, glowy look, I apply a bit of Studio Fix Fluid. I only ever use a teeny bit of each, about one pump's worth of MAC as I find it tends to oxidise a little if you use any more than that! To hide my dark circles and any other blemishes, if I need to, I use a bit of the concealer. This is honestly the best concealer I've ever tried and it lasts ages, I've had this tube about a year now and I'm still nowhere near finished! £13.50 well spent, in my opinion!
Benefit Bella Bamba - Benefit Cha Cha Tint
As it's technically meant to be summer now, I've been using these two coral products to achieve a fresh, healthy look. (In winter I favour flushed pink cheeks - think Bourjois Rose d'Or!) Bella Bamba is a really bright shade with some shimmer, so it helps to lift my face and brighten it when I'm feeling particularly dreary! Cha Cha Tint always makes me look more tanned and lasts longer than any powder blusher I've used, so I like to pick it for days when I won't be able to touch-up my make-up. Again I've had this bottle for over a year and it's not even close to empty.
Benefit They're Real - Maybelline Illegal Lengths - L'Oreal Super Liner in Carbon Gloss - Sleek Brow Palette in Dark
Naturally I also use eyeshadow on a daily basis but it changes depending on several factors (my outfit/the weather/how much time I spent getting dressed); however, these four items are staples in my make up routine. I like BIG lashes, so I tend to use Maybelline for length and Benefit for definition and volume. I cannot be without eyeliner and the L'Oreal one lasts longer than any of my pen liners (but is also slightly dodgy when doing flicks!). I don't use the Sleek palette on my eyes of course...but a quick sweep of the wax over my eyebrows helps a ton when I'm feeling a bit like Brooke Shields!
