So today I thought I’d just show you what products I am loving for my current every day make up, I just go for a simple subtle make up look which is suitable for every occasion.
So first up, no matter what I use my Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer in Normal/Combination skin. I just put this on all over and wait a while for it to soak in, it’s no surprise that its still in my every day routine as it’s the primer I always come into and my make up is transformed with this underneath.
Then I just apply my Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in shade 010 Light Porcelain with a Wilko Premium Stipler Foundation Brush. The foundation is amazing as most of you know and luckily for us pale girls it comes in a large variety of shades so you will be able to find one to suit you. I’m playing around with cheaper brushes so I’m trying out one Wilko face brush and two eye brushes, its working well and if you want a full review of wilko brushes let me know in the comments below.
As I’ve been travelling and away from home a lot my Sleek Face Form Palette in Light has become a go to product and I just apply it with a Cosmopolitan Blush Brush. I don’t do full on contouring but a do a basic bit, or sometimes I just use it for a bit of blush or bronzer to freshen up my face. It is just a versatile do it all palette and will worth getting. If you want to you can check out my review of this here.
So for a concealer I am currently using the MUA Cover and Conceal in Light, as my collection one ran out and this was the only one that was there close to my colour. I’m hoping to pick one up when I go into Plymouth for a day because this isn’t the best concealer, its just a bit light and watery so not what you really want from a concealer but its buildable and workable when needed.
I have fallen in love with the MUA Heaven and Earth Palette, its just such a beautiful neutral palettr that you can create all sorts of looks. For general everyday I just sweep Myan Dust (Top row 3rd from the right) over the lid and then put Bedrock (bottom far right) on in my crease, then blending it in. I use my two Wilko Eyeshadow Brushes to apply the colour and then I blend with my Ruby and Millie Eyeshadow brush.
I then just pick up my go to eye liner Collection Intense Colour Kohl Pencil in 01 Black Magic, and just pit it in my water line. I’ve recently been loving my Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara in Black Brown, my mum brought it for me when tesco had a load gong cheap and it was only £2.50 and I’ve been loving it despite never going for a black brown normally. I love the formula and the brush and they definitely give me fuller natural lashes.
Tip: Melt the tip of your pencil eye liner in a lighter flame for a second or so then allow to cool before putting on, it gives off a more intense colour and helps eye liner last longer.
I always set my make up with a pressed powder and currently I’m loving MUA Pressed Powder in Shade 1, and apply it with a Kabuki. I find you can’t really go wrong with pressed powders of any price and I love this one it gives good coverage and luckily the light shade is the right colour for me.
And finally, day to day I don’t always bother with my lips but I will always but on my Barr y M Cor Balmy Lip Balm in Adam and Eve, to keep my lips soft and hydrated. You can read a full review here.
So that’s my current day to day make up, I know you may have seen a lot of these products before but once I find something I love I always go back and others just suit me while I’m doing a lot of staying away from home.
What’s your current make up routine? Do you keep it simple and repetitive like me, or do you regularly mix it up?Love Gwenllian Branwen xox
