My Daily Makeup

Sunday, 6 April 2014


My aim is to make Sunday's post different for those of you who would like to see another aspect of my life come up on my blog. Today's post will be a beauty one - in no way will I ever be a beauty blogger.. I'm actually appalling when it comes to makeup! I simply stick to what I know and like. In my posts I always sport the same makeup so I'm going to show you what I use to achieve my everyday makeup look. Here goes...

For me it's all about long eyelashes and contouring; I've always loved applying bronzer; I think one of my first ever makeup purchases was a bronzer, along with mascara. I previously posted about my eyelash struggles here; I'm always looking for ways to add length to my lashes (leave me any of your tips in the comments below). I'm getting eyelash extensions in April with Beautytrix which I'm really looking forward to! I will let you know how I get on with those in a review some time after. 

This is what I use to achieve my look:

Brushes: Deluxe Crease Brush - Real Techniques || Buffing Brush - Real Techniques || Expert Face Brush - Real Techniques || Fluffy Brush - H&M || Blusher Brush - W7

Face: Healthy Mix Foundation - Bourjois || Bronzing Powder - Bourjois || Candy Collection Sweet Cheeks - Sleek Makeup || Wake Me Up Concealer - Rimmel || Stay Matte Pressed Powder - Rimmel

Eyes & Lips: Eyelash Curler - Eyeko || Rocket Volume Mascara - Maybelline || Le Volume De Chanel - Chanel || Eyeliner Pencil - Beauty UK || Born Lippy - The Body Shop




For me, whether or not I use foundation depends; I added it here because I know a lot of people use foundation daily but usually I don't (I'm not wearing any in the picture above). I only tend to use it when going out in the evenings or on special occasions otherwise I just stick to powder. I use loads of bronzer, I love the finished look, although I know it isn't everybody's cup of tea but this Bourjois one smells like chocolate so I simply can't resist! I vary between blushes depending on my mood and everything else is pretty basic - a good concealer, mascara and a tinted lip balm.

I hope you like this post! I'd love to know your daily makeup and if you have any tips and tricks for me then do let me know! Leave me any comments below :)

P.S. Nominations for the style blogger awards are open; I would love if you nominated my blog for 'best personal style blog - newcomer'  here, it would mean so much to me <3

    1. Aw thank you! I try not to cake on foundation because I'm scared it will be bad for my skin (I'm quite happy going foundation-free for now). I think it's something a little different but not too sure how well it goes down but I like doing these so we'll see. I'm glad you like it though, thank you :) X
