MY CURRENT EVERYDAY MAKEUP ROUTINE

Hi everyone, welcome back

Often I change up my everyday make up routine depending on my skin. Currently though I’ve listed the products below I have using everyday for the last weeks….

First things first I apply primer Maybelline super stay  on my face, this primer is great, gives a fresh makeup look all day.

Next I apply the Max factor Healthy skin Harmony Foundation this foundation leaves a very smooth skin and it last forever.

Then I like to apply Maybelline fit me concealer with Real techniques beauty blender …

Next is my favourite part! contour! bronzer! , I’m in love with the Makeup Revolution Pro HD Powder Contour this contains 8 contour and highlight powders. This pallet is pretty easy to work with … I can do contour, bronzer and highlight, It’s fab….

I also use for highlight the Bronzer bronzing brick, this gives a beautiful glossy finish.

For Setting Powder I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder to set my foundation in place. I usually concentrate mostly on my T-zone where I am more likely to get more shine throughout the day.

Then for eyes I use Stila eyeshadow palette I have to say I use this pallet for long long time, and I really like it …

For mascara I received a sample of the Benefit Badgal Bang volumising mascara  and I really like it. It not only makes my lashes look thick, it gives a great amount of length and volume.

Finally onto lips, , I use my favourite mac lipstick of the moment in shade Mocha, for line my lips I like to use the NYX swede matte lip liner … I also have been using the lipstick from Primark Nudes Matte and I’m impressed with it.

So there you have it my current everyday makeup routine, let me know if you use any of the products I have listed or have any products you’d like to recommend to me. I love trying out new makeup.

Favourite primer of the moment Maybelline super Stay primer

Hi everyone, welcome back

Maybelline Super stay primer – Gives a perfected, freshly-applied look all-day.

The ultra-smoothing formula instantly evens the appearance of the skin’s surface for the most perfect finish and controls shine to keep makeup fresh & flawless all day long.

It really does extend the life of my make up and keeps it looking fresh all day long and it doesn’t dry my skin. I use makeup all day and since I started use this primer, my makeup stay in place for all day, I have to say it really works.

I like to apply all over the face after moisturiser and before foundation.

Definitely give this a try if you’re looking for a primer with a light texture that keeps your makeup looking fresh all day.

This is a product I will definitely repurchase.

Have you tried this product ?

That’s everything from me today. I hope you enjoyed this post. Thank you for reading xx
