So today I broke up from school for the holidays, exiting right?! Anywayyyy, todays blog post is a collaboration with the lovely theaveragegurl! click on her name to check out her blog! Todays post, as you can probably guess from the title is a makeup routine….
Now before I get into the post, I have dry patches on my cheeks and forehead so this makeup is targeted at dryer skinned people however I also have the smallest bit of oiliness on my chin and it works great there also, so I’m sure you’d be fine if you have oilier skin.
most of these items are drugstore and as I live In the UK, their from either Boots or Superdrug. The higher end are from either Mac or Clinique. I am a wear on the touchy subject of Mac testing on animal however the items I have are either gifts or they didn’t test on animals to make it, as I do not like the fact they test on animals.
Now, for the makeup. I have somedays, like everyone else does where ill just wear primer with a touch of concealer or ill wear a CC cream. however I also have the days where I want to wear a bolder lip and a bit of mascara, this is where I feel like a foundation is needed, here is my makeup routines….
First we have to set the base with a primer…
On a day where I am wearing a base that gives coverage, I weafr the primer to your left which is the Max Factor, all day primer. this dosnt say anthin g about evening skin tone however I feel it does even mine. and on a day where id rather just wear a bit of primer and concealer, I wear the two to your right. As you can see, one is the beloved Maybelline Baby Skin instant pore erase. The other is Collections, Primed and ready. this is ‘powered’ by witch, which is a ache erasing company, I believe.
Next are my bases for the days where id like a bit of coverage….
Now…. the Rimmel stay matt is for days where I have drama performances on stage so that the lights do not give me a dreadful glow of any type. the Bourjois CC cream is for days where I want to look natural, mainly a day to day base for school or around the house. the last one of the three is the Bourjois healthy mix SERUM, I put this in capitals as there are two types, this one is a lot more hydrating. I wear this when I want a little more coverage and am adding a lip with mascara, normally a evening look or party, maybe weekend. I blen all three listed above with my real techniques beauty blender.
For the days with a little more spots…..
I have the one and only Collection lasting perfection, this is the dream concealer!! I also blend this in using my beauty blender.
now for the finishing touches, blusher, mascara and lips!
Firstly id apply my favourite blusher from Benefit, which is Sugarbomb. or Id opt for my Loreal blush, I apply my blusher with my Real Techniques blush brush. I would then apply my mascara. For a volumemized look id use my Rimmel 24hour curl and for a lengthy look id use my Newlook extreme length. Then going onto lips, I often stick to darker shades and I’m not fussy with lips, any brand will do, I just am not keen on overly glittery. But I have a few No.7 glosses, a few lippies from Mac or Maxfactor and a few crayons from Clinique.
Then sometimes ill powder but not often as it sticks to my dryer areas. If I do I use Mac studio fix powder with a real techniques powder brush.
Well then lovelies, that’s it for today, I hope you have enjoyed this makeup routine for what id say, three/four different occasions. and utill Tuesday, have a great week!
