Before I put my makeup on I always start with my skincare. Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer and Eye Cream. Once a week I will give my skin a good scrub using my exfoliator.
I'm one of those people who does my eyeshadow first. When I tell people this they look at me strange and wonder why I don't do my foundation first. I have a really good reason for it - drop down. When I do my eyeshadow there is always fallout and drop down, especially when I use a really dark color. This is the last thing you want if you have just applied your foundation and got it looking all nice. You just gotta wipe it off and start again, it's much easier to do foundation last.
- Setting Spray
I've also started using a brand new foundation which I think is great. At the moment I'm using Perfection Lumiere by Chanel. Sometimes I will use an illuminator too which I mix in with my foundation to give my face an all over glow. One illuminator i like at the moment is Born To Glow by NYX.
Cheeks and Face
In the summer I like to use a bronzer too. Somedays I will also do some contouring as well.
- Brow pencil
- Dipbrow Pomade by Anastasia Beverly Hills
- Benefit High Brow
What I use on my brows depends on the day. Some days I will just use a pencil, others I will use my Dipbrow Pomade which is a fantastic brow product.
- NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
- Supercat Eyeliner by Soap And Glory
- Chanel Le Crayon Khol Eye Pencil
A good eyeshadow base is essential to keeping your eyeshadow on all day and creaseproof. My all time favorite primer for the eyes has to be the Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base from NARS.
- Lip Crayons
- Liquid Lipstick
I like to use a wide range of lip products including lipsticks, crayons and liquid lipsticks. I really don't like gloss as it does feel sticky and is a nightmare to wear in the winter. Getting your hair stuck in the gloss because of the windy weather outside really isn't good.
So there is my daily makeup routine. Hope you all enjoyed reading. Do you have a daily makeup routine too?
