So I thought today I would share something that I use everyday, of course it’s my everyday make up. Since I’ve moved I’ve been living out of boxes and using the same set of make up which I’ve been loving and have now nailed being able to get it done in 10 minutes MAX.
My Everyday Makeup
I’ve been trying a new foundation recently, the Shiseido Synchro Skin Self Refreshing foundation which I am loving. I’ve been using it for a good few weeks now and though it gives a natural look the coverage is really good. I’ve not used concealer since I’ve been using this and anyone who is a long time follower will know my struggles with concealer. My biggest hang up is my under eye circles so a product that stops me from using concealer when I’ve been known to use up to 3 at once in the past is really something to shout about. I’ve been using the shade Silk.
I’ve also been using the nude by nature loose powder which isn’t really earth shattering as I don’t think powders vary that much in my opinion but the packaging makes it super easy to get the powder out without wasting a ton and getting it all over the sink or wherever you do your make up. It’s kind of a net, so you can push the brush into the product without having to tap it out first.
Bronzer, I’m using Bobbi Brown, I’ve been using this since my make up trial which was yonks ago now and I’ve still not hit pan. Pretty impressive considering the amount of bronzer I use when trying to match my face to my fake tan! Plus I use the side of my brush to add a little contour with this as well once I’ve gone all over with it.
This Dior highlight palette is super handy. I’ve been using it for highlight and for blush and sometimes I even use the gold and bronze for eyeshadow as well. it’s a multifunctional palette and it’s super slim so easy to take away with you. I also have been using this for ages now, over a year I’d say, and it looks like it’s been barely touched as there’s just so much product there and it’s super effective so you don’t need to use much at all.
Finally on my eyes i’ve been using this insanely good brow pencil from Hourglass for ages now. I got it at an event in the summer and I’ve been fascinated with it ever since. It’s super easy to apply and comes with a really great spooley that doubles up as a good mascara remover! The liner is one from Benefit which lasts all day, this is actually a sample but again i’ve been using it for months and it’s still going strong and hasn’t faded at all, you can actually buy the mini version too which is so great for handbags and travelling with those annoying liquids bags that fit NOTHING in.
Finally it’s been a while since I found a new mascara to rave about. I’ve always been a huge fan of NARS mascaras but I got sent this YSL one a few months ago and it’s been game changing for me. It’s so good and not messy at all. I’ve had so many compliments since using it so I’m adding it to my favourites list with the NARS audacious and NARS Climax.
I would love to hear if you guys have any great products you’ve been using for tiiiime and think I need to try!
