My Current Makeup Routine

Since moving house a month ago I still haven’t set up my dressing table completely so half my makeup is stashed away somewhere in a box the other half I’ve put in a largish clear cheap makeup bag. Having my makeup in a bag rather than being laid out in my room has made my life alot easier. I can take it with me if I want to apply whilst I’m away from home or just have it with me if I want to top up when I need to.

A few months back I did a Makeup Q&A where I chatted about some of my favourite brands, I’ll link it here. I haven’t done a post like this before so here is my everyday makeup routine. Normally, I wear makeup around 3 times a week so when I do this is what I currently choose.

My Makeup Routine

Moisturiser: In my bag at the moment is my Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream which makes my skin seriously smooth and plump. I always apply this before I do my makeup because I just prefer how my makeup looks on top of moisturiser. I swear it lasts longer.

At night I use the Neal’s Yard Almond Moisturiser which is gorgeous.

Foundation: At the moment I’m using a toss up of two Bare Minerals foundations. Their Original and their Complexion Rescue. I normally opt for the powder as I’m pretty lazy, it takes about 20 seconds to get a flawless finish. If I’m going out I’ll use the Complexion Rescue and then a little of the Original powder on top.

Powder: I’m in love with Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Finish Powder. It conceals all my skin’s lumps and bumps leaving my face with an even colour and finish.

Eyes: If I can be bothered to do I eyeshadow I will use my NARS Smudge Proof primer or my Charlotte Tilbury Eye’s To Mesmerise in Jean. Both make my eyeshadow last all day. Not a crease in sight! At the moment I’m pretty addicted to Charlotte Tilbury’s Golden Goddess quad. I love brown eyeshadows and the browns in this are so flattering. I always use an eyelash curler because my lashes are extremely flat. My mascara of choice is Legendary Lashes by Charlotte Tilbury. Can you see a theme here?

Brows: For my brows I always always use NYX’s Brow Mascara in Brunette. It’s not clumpy, the brush is really precise and the colour natural. I can’t see myself changing brow products anytime soon.

Concealer: My concealer for my under eyes is the Collection Lasting Perfection which brightens my under eyes like nothing else I’ve ever used. It beats designer brands by a mile. For spots I cover with my Urban Decay Complete Coverage Concealer which is pretty high coverage which is perfect for any imperfections.

Cheeks: I haven’t found a bronzer that works for my pale skin tone so I’m staying clear from that at the moment. For highlighter I’ll use Opal by Becca which is very pigmented and golden. I use a quick sweep on my cheekbones and it really helps the look come together.

Lips: I’m not really wearing much lipstick at the moment. Most of the time I wear lip balm because this cold weather is making my lips so so dry. Notttt pretty. If I do wear lipstick it’s Nude Kate from Charlotte Tilbury.

 

I would love to hear what you use everyday!

 

PS I’ve used VSCO editing on these photos because it makes me feel good…my skin doesn’t look like this.
