My current daily face…
I’m trying to change my daily make-up look on at least a weekly basis at the moment, to try and make myself use different products in my collection so I pull out some of the neglected ones and generally rotate things to keep it interesting.
When I say interesting, I mostly mean for me… as the finished look pretty much looks the same… but hopefully you get what I mean with the attempt to change it up regularly.
My current base routine is:
I’m really liking the Airbrush primer, it feels light to apply and doesn’t just slip off my face throughout the day as some silicone based primers have done before. I’ve then been using the No7 BB cream to even my skin out, this one is for normal/dry skin and I really want to try the oily one (I looked for it in the Boots in Westfield Stratford this weekend but they didn’t have any in stock) as think I would avoid the shiny nose that tends to develop with the normal/dry version.
To help set and build a little extra coverage I’ve started using Bare Minerals Original again to dust over the top, I like how this takes away excess shine but leaves a glow so isn’t totally matte. If I’m having a bad skin day I add a bit more of this.
On the eyes I’m wearing:
The mascara (will do a proper mascara review soon) but here’s a snap of the tube and brush for now…
Other make-up bits I’m wearing:
On the lips I’ve taken to using just a touch of Benefit Posie Tint – (I’m currently using the mini one from Glamour magazine last year) I’m just too rubbish at reapplying lipstick often enough! So this one works a treat at adding a bit of colour that stays and doesn’t need reapplying constantly.
Ever since I had HD brows in December I’ve taken to filling in my brows a little bit darker than they are naturally. I’ve been absolutely LOVING Cosmetics A La Carte brow ink in ‘Taupe’* that came in a Carmine beauty box that I received last year. This has genuinely changed how I do my eyebrows on a daily basis and will repurchase without a doubt.
Blusher wise I have been using a MAC Christmas palette I bought quite a while ago with Peachy Keen on the cheeks with a bit of Sun-Sparked Pearl beauty powder on the tops one the cheek bones for a natural highlight.
Do you try and rotate what you use or do you stick with something once you found something you like?
