Everyday Face : Made Up #1

From day-to-day my make up doesn't change too much. I switch up the eyeshadow's I use or the colour of eye liner - mainly between a black or a brown - or the type of eyeliner I use - gel, liquid, kohl etc - but the base mostly remains the same. Unless I am feeling adventurous, that it.

Recenetly these have been my go to products to achieve my over eye lined, nude face, glossy lipped look.

Face:  My face never really changes too much. Sometimes I will change the product I use but I never stray too far away from the same shades. Light, pinky toned blushes & a subtle contour. Since discovering the Healthy Mix range, it has been the only foundations I have used for as long as I can remember. Hey if it ain't broken, don't fix it!

 ourjois Healthy Mix foundation (Shade 53) and Healthy Mix concealer (Shade 52) Contour with Rimmel Smoked Oyster blusher and add a little healthy glow with Bourjois Beach Bloom blusher. If I am setting my make up then I will use either Rimmel Stay Matte in Shade Warm Beige, Bourjois Healthy Mix powder in 52 or Sleek Luminous Pressed powder in 02.

Eyes:  This is where I can get a bit more adventurous of sorts well more adventurous than my base!  I love playing around with different toned eyeliners and eye shadows as well as adding some spikey falsies if I am feeling particularity glam! I favourite kind of eyeliner is without a doubt a soft deep black kohl that allows me too smudge it with black eyeshadow or shades of brown. I am all about the smudgey-ness. Some people say it is a bit much for day time but I like it and without it I feel naked. It isn't a full on smokey eye but it isn't subtle.

 Sleek Eau La La eye pencil in black, MUA Brown eyebrow pencil, MUA Undressed palette, Rimmel Black eye shadow, Revlon Grow Luscious mascara in black, YSL Faux Cils in black

Lips: I sometimes venture into bold lip territory but not too often. I tend to stick to a milky, glossy lip or a matte nude. Currently I have been hopping between three products: Natural Collection lipgloss in Rasperry Ripple, Niviea lip balm in caramel cream and Superdrug I love... Strawberries and Milkshake lip balm.


 If/when my make up routine changes I will do another one of these just as a way of keeping up to date with whats on the old mug!


  1. I love that Revlon mascara, I was so surprised that it does actually work! xxx
