My Everyday Makeup

Hey Everyone!

Since going back to school and changing seasons my everyday makeup has changed a fair bit so I thought I'd share it with you. Personally, I'd much rather an extra few minutes in my bed rather than spending ages putting on makeup so this look is quick and simple. 9 times out of 10 I'm also running late in the morning so the less I put on the better. 

I start with a base of MAC Mineralize Satin Finish foundation in shade NW20 which my cousin gave me after finding her HG in Chanel (Let's say I'm a tad jelous of her makeup collection). I then put Bourjois Pot Blush in Rose D'or on my cheekbones and MAC MSF in Soft & Gentle on top. 

Moving onto eyes, after curling my lashes, if I have time I will apply MUA Single Eyeshadow in shade 1 all over the lid and blend a little shade 17 into the outer corner, crease and lower lash line. I'll then line my upper lid with L'Oreal Super Liner and apply Clinique Lash Power mascara (long wearing formula). Then I'll sweep a bit of Avon Translucent powder over my whole face and finally pop on some Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me (this last step sometimes takes place on the way to the bus stop if I'm super short of time!).

This makeup lasts the day without reapplication (especially the mascara which is a big plus!). I still prefer my HG Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation but for now I may aswell use what I have of this MAC one. I'm still loving the MAC MSF though! I'm also really liking this mascara- I think the next one I buy will be a full size of one of the Clinique ones I've tried as they're just so darn good. 
I know my face and neck look two different colours but rest assured its just the lighting/ shadow :)
What are your everyday staples?

  1. This is a really lovely natural look :) I love MAC and used to always use their foundation but started to find it a bit heavy so have swapped to using L'Oreal BB cream as a base and then a L'Oreal powder and my skin is so much better for it! :)
    Keep in touch!

    1. Thanks! Interesting! I don't think I'll repurchase a MAC foundation but I've enjoyed using it. I think drugstore foundations are pretty good xx

  2. I love my Clinique mascara too, I get a lot of volume and it has a really good last. Do you use any concealer on a daily basis?


    1. I know and its one of the more affordable high end options at around £15 (I think) though I've never actually had a full sized one. I didn't use it for agess because it wasn't really necessary but I have started again over the last few weeks because my skin is pretty bad. I use Collection Lasting Perfection concealer :) xx
