My Everyday Make Up Look

Everyday Makeup Look - Warm Tones

So I often do beauty posts but none of them really include the critical thing that a beauty post needs, my face.

I talk about new collections, I swatch things and I share my favourites but this time I thought I would share with you  an actual make up look. The only make up look if I’m honest. Day or night, fancy or casual I do my make up the same day in day out. I switch the products around occasionally but usually to the same effect.

I definitely want to start playing with my make up more so if you want to see more make up looks on the blog from me then let me know for sure. If I am going to do them more regularly then clearly my everyday had to be the first one right?

Here’s my Everyday Make Up Look

My Everyday Make Up Look

So in a nutshell here’s my everyday make up look, BTW I wear a lot. I don’t have bad skin, it’s not that I’m covering anything up. I just really enjoy putting it on and since blogging became a thing I’ve had make up samples coming out of my ears which means my make up routine has extended . . a lot.

Before I get into it I thought I’d just let you know about me and my skin. As I said I’m pretty lucky. I am 27 though so the wrinkles are slowly but surely appearing. I have normal to dry skin which is sensitive. Not majorly when it comes to make up, but 100% I am on skincare.

The Step By Step To My Everyday Make Up Look

BASE

So before I do anything I have my skincare routine which I am more than happy to share if you guys want me to! But I wanted to share the last step here which is pretty new. The YSL Instant Moisture Glow which rightly or wrongly I actually use after my moisturiser, double moisturising . . I told you I was extra. I really love this product even though I’ve been using it for less than a week it’s not firmly a part of my morning routine.

Next I pop some of my concealer on. My firm favourite right now is the Nars Soft Matte Concealer in Chantilly and I’m pretty heavy handed with this, I go with the motto more is more. I apply it with my Clinique foundation brush which I then also use to  apply my D&G Perfect Matte Liquid Foundation in Caramel. This foundation has taken over Mac Studio Sculpt in NW15 which was my all time favourite for a couple of years. I honestly never thought something could replace it but this one feels so much lighter and I get so many compliments on my make up and skin people are always asking what I’m using.

FACE

On to the powder section. Honestly the layers on my face daily are outrageous!

So before I add any colour I use a powder and I’ve just started using the YSL Souffle D’Eclat and it’s amazing I love it! I would totally recommend as a translucent powder that will keep you looking glowy! Next and I sound so pretentious saying this but I use the Tom Ford Bronzing Powder in Gold Dust. It’s expensive, yes. But it’s also majorly worth it. It’s lasted me so long already and I have tons left plus it’s the perfect shade of tan! I also use this to add a bit of contour. The whole time I’m using my Real Techniques brush but to contour I just use the side of it.

I originally bought this Laura Mercier Face Illuminator in Addiction to look and not touch. Then I tried it, and now it’s not so pretty looking but who cares because it’s making my face look pretty looking. The golden glow it gives is so good and I apply it religiously every day to my brow bone and cheek bones with this Sigma brush. Then another glowy product I use is my BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold. I use it as a blusher (with this brush) but it has a highlight to it as well so you can imagine by the end of this I am beaming.

EYES

On to the eyes and please prepare yourself to hyperventilate over all the expensive products I use. I was kindly gifted some pieces from Dolce & Gabbana earlier this year and I quite honestly am hooked and will have to replace them if and when they run out because I don’t see a way of not having them? Dramatic?

I use the D&G Mono Cream Eyeshadow everyday with my real techniques eye brushes. You can use your finger but I kept getting it under my nail which one it gross and two is a total waste of product. I use two shades depending on my mood. Desert for everyday, then I sometimes add Bronze to the outer corners of my eyes if I’m feeling fancy. If I’m feeling really special then I also add the lightest colour from the Charlotte Tilbury face in a palette to the inner corners of my eyes.

More D&G beauty. Their brow pencil is something else. As with all good brow products it comes fully equipped with a spooly on one end and the product is such a nice consistency and in the shape of a line rather than a point so much easier to apply. The Liquid eyeliner is also a product that can make anyone seem an expert at the cat eye even novices like myself and I actually got it in brown which is really nice against my blue eyes and blonde hair, not as harsh as a black liner. Finally I finish it off with my unwavering favourite mascara, Nars Audacious.

LIPS

A trip back to my all time favourite beauty brand right now Dolce & Gabbana for my lips. I use the pencil in shade 8 which is honestly the most perfect dark nude/pink shade and mixes with any nude lipsticks to perfection. I also noticed that D&G have literally thought of everything because like the spooly on the brow pencil this has a lipstick brush on the end of it. Something that I previously hadn’t  even used at home but now take great delight in using everywhere, even on the tube . . I’m so fancy. It looks super nice on its own with a clear gloss or balm over the top or I’ve been pairing it with this lipstick in Royal Pink which is slightly lighter so creates a really nice effect

And Voila!

Make sure you let me know if you get any of these products or create the look as I would love to hear! I’m such a beauty novice so to inspire someone else would be crazy! I thought sharing my everyday make up look would be good though as especially on Youtube people always ask my about what I use but I don’ think I’m pro enough for a tutorial!
