My Everyday Makeup Routine

So I thought this would be fun to do as recently I have been loving reading other peoples posts like this. So here's my everyday makeup routine.....

So I have a makeup draw that is constantly expanding but I keep the makeup I use everyday in my ted baker makeup bag because it is just so pretty and such a summery, bright coral colour!

  • So to start off I always wash my face in the mornings (and at night) and I use the 'Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash'. 
  • Then I go in with a 'Simple' face wipe before I apply my moisturiser - 'Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief'. 
  • Then I apply my primer which is the 'Benefit Porefessional'.
  • Then I go in with my foundation, I mix two together to get my desired coverage and colour (full coverage), these two are the 'Mac Studio Fix Fluid' in NC25 and the 'No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation' in Calico.
  • I then go in with my concealer, I use the 'L.A. Girl Pro Conceal' in classic ivory for under my eyes and for any blemishes I use 'Benefit Boi-ing concealer' in 01 and 02.
  • I then set everything on my face with my 'Benefit Hello Flawless Powder' in Ivory.
  • Next I apply bronzer all over my cheeks, I only wear bronzer no contour or blush, I use 'Bourjois Bronzing Powder 51'.
  • I then apply my highlight which is the 'Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick' in Raw Sugar.
  • I then go on to do my eyebrows which I use the 'w7 superbrows pencil' in the lightest shade, as I have blonde hair. I then just set them with the 'Natural Collection Clear Lashcare Mascara'.
  • I then prime my eyelids using the 'Benefit Stay Don't Stray', and then go on to use the 'Urban Decay Naked palette', I use the first one as I find it has the best colours and I just do my eyeshadow however I feel that day.
  • Then lastly I curl my lashes with my 'Mac' eyelash curler and apply a few coats of 'Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara'.
