It's been a while since I've done a face of the day; I've been finding myself reaching for the same selection of products for the past few weeks so i thought id share with you an updated everyday make-up routine, funnily enough this is probably going to change quite soon as i may have treated myself to the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette and i can't wait to try it out as soon as its been photographed! (#bbloggerproblems)

As always my make-up is pretty natural - the middle photo isn't the greatest but its the only photo that gives an inkling to the eyeshadow I'm wearing, I'm hoping to invest in a better camera soon as mine seems to suck at picking up colour and not to mention this crappy lighting isn't helping so much but to achieve this look i applied Monu Calming Cream to my chin and a little the faded burn marks on the side of my face to reduce the redness there, i primed with Sheer Cover Base Perfector and pre-concealed my under eyes, chin and the burns with Benefit Fake Up Concealer in Light*, I've rekindled my love for this concealer lately as the hydrating ring around the concealer is really moisturising and great to use especially with the weather being colder and it's covering my dark circles really well too. My go to foundation at the moment is also my newest one (and most expensive) the YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation in B30 Beige and so far I'm loving it, it has great coverage and leave my skin looking so nice - I'll be doing a full review on it soon!

Moving onto the brows; as usual i fill them in with the HD 'Foxy' Brow Kit and then set those in place with the Maybelline Brow Drama in Dark Brown - if I'm in a rush or just not feeling like it, sometimes i skip filling them in with the HD Brow Kit and just groom and set them with Maybelline's Brow Drama. After I've primed my eyes (Urban Decay Primer Potion of course) i apply Rimmel London Glam'eyes Mono Eyeshadow in Punchy Taupe all over the lid and then blend Mac Eyeshadow in Satin Taupe into the outer corner - Ive been loving wearing these two eyeshadows together, it's a really subtle neutral look but the Satin Taupe just adds a little extra definition to the eyes. Some days I'd tightline and line a third of my waterline with Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Taupe, it's still very neutral but it adds to the eye look, i mostly only wore the eyeliner on days off - to finish the eyes i applied Benefit They're Real Mascara.

I added a little Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory to my under eyes and warmed up the face a little with Bourjois Delice de Soleil Bronzer, Ive been loving this bronzer lately it applies so nicely to the face and i love how it looks, after I've applied the bronzer i set my face with my usual Benefit Hello Flawless Custom Cover Up Powder in Gee, I'm Swell Ivory* and then i finish off the base with Smashbox Blush/Soft Lights Duo in Passion/Shimmer to the cheeks and this gives my skin such an amazing glow and flush to the cheeks and I'm loving using it.

The two lip products I've been wearing the most are my Barry M Lipgloss in Toffee - which is the one I'm wearing in the photo, it's has the best formula for a lipgloss and this particular one smells amazing and on the days I'm wanting a more bold lip I've been reaching for Bourjois Colourburst Lip Crayon in Red Sunrise.

So that is the make-up look I've been wearing a lot lately, its really natural and wearable. I wear this both for work and just general everyday and I've really been enjoying wearing it.

What products have you been reaching for on a day-to-day basis?

  1. Very pretty. I love the lipcolor and subtle eyeshadows.
    I've been reaching for bronzer as well,
    both to fight off washed out pale and to practice contouring!
