I go through phases with my make up, and currently I’d say I’m fairly happy with my routine which for me is pretty impressive, so I thought I’d share it with you all! I like my sleep so I’ve tried to cut down the amount of time I spend on my make up in the morning as much as possible. So, please find below a quick ‘how to’ for everyday make up in 10 minutes. As you can see from the picture it’s a really natural look, meaning it’s pretty easy to recreate!
First, prepping your skin is so important to ensure you get a good base for your make up to sit. I don’t use a primer, but I do make sure to thoroughly moisture my face with my everyday moisturiser. Then, comes the most important part for me, the concealing. I cover any blemishes/red areas using a concealer, my favourite at the moment is Hide The Blemish by Rimmel. I then also use this as a base for my under eye area.
Following this, I apply Oil Free Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser using my fingers as I prefer to blend that way. I take Clinique Airbrush Concealer in Medium and apply under my eyes. To set this all using the real techniques powder brush I apply Mac Select Sheer/Pressed Powder in NC5 over all of my face. I’ll then gently define my cheekbones using the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Palette in Bronze.
To highlight, I dab 3 dots of Benefit High Beam under my eye area and then blend in. Moving onto my cheeks, I take The Multiple by Nars in Orgasm and apply to the apples of my cheeks. I then blend this out with a touch of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose Quartz using the Bobbi Brown Face Blending Brush.
Moving onto my eyes, I first focus on my brows. I fill in using the dark colour in the Focus & Fix Kit in Medium by Make Up Revolution. I then brush over to really tidy up using the Benefit Speed Brow Gel.
Using my finger I then sweep a layer of Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in Sparkling Champagne over my eye lids and up to the brows. For my eyeliner I turn to my trusty Bobbi Brown Gel Eye Liner in Sepia Ink and create a simple flick at the outer corner of my eye. I follow with a coat of mascara in Diorshow Iconic High Definition Lash Curler Mascara in Black, and then another coat of Ultra Tech Curve Mascara by Kiko Cosmetics in Black.
Finally for my lips, I moisturise first using the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Magic Balm and then follow with the MAC Pro Longwear Lip Liner in Staunchly Stylish. I then apply a coat of Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colour Lipstick in Neutral Rose for the final touch!
Writing it down it seems like a long process but I promise it really isn’t! I’ve done it half asleep before so it is almost like a foolproof guide to applying makeup.
Thanks for reading 🙂
