My Current Make-Up Routine

Hi :)

Today I thought I'd do a post about my current make-up routine. No doubt this will change over the coming weeks/months- I've only been blogging a week and already I have about a million things on my to buy list that I've seen on other blogs! 

Anyway, I would say my make-up is pretty basic, I'm a big believer in 'less is more', particularly if your young (like me). My current make up is a selection of high-end and drugstore- the high-end being Clinique bonus time rejects that my mum doesn't want!

Products In Order Of Use: 

Clinique: Almost Makeup Shade 09: On my second tube of this stuff, it's really great as it gives coverage but not at all 'cakey' and is great for young skin as its more like a tinted moisturiser. It's a little shiny without powder though.

Rimmel London: Clear Complection Cover Stick: This is a little off my skin tone but works quite well with a base and blended in. A little drying under the eyes so I think I'll maybe get a liquid concealer next.

Avon: Translucent Pressed Powder: Does exactly it should- mattes out my face yet works in harmony with base. I really like this though I got it a very, very long time ago and I'm not sure avon still even sell them, so this has to last forever!

Clinique: Blushing Blush Powder Blush Shade 09: I think this was a Clinique bonus a while ago. I love the shade, it is great for my skin tone. Another great thing is it can be build up really nicely, so you can go for a barely there look or a more flushed (think thats the word I'm looking for)  look. 

Clinique: Cream Shaper for Eyes Shade 01: This has been in my drawer for ages and the a few days ago I decided to sharpen it and start using it again. I really like it, it defines the eye really well and stays on all day. 

Fearne: Day Compact From Dawn Till Dusk: I bought this in the Boots Christmas sale a few weeks ago, it was 75% off! I love the tones of this palette and the colour is really pigmented. I am wearing the shade to the left. 

Soap & Glory: Thick & Fast Mascara: Came with ELLE magazine, read my review here.

Nivea Lip Care Essential: An essential for everyone I think, keeps my lips really moisturised when wearing lipstick.

MUA: Lipstick Shade 9: I have a few MUA lipsticks and I think I wear this the most. It is close to my on lip colour which I like because it's simple enough to wear day to day. Stays on well and at £1 you can't go wrong!

Final Look:

That's all from me today, I feel the Monday blues coming on already. This weekend went by way to fast!  AdiĆ³s  :)
