What’s in a face, or more importantly, what’s in my face? This is my everyday make up routine, everyday being the days that I do wear make-up but it’s not quite a special occasion! I think your make up will never look as nice as you want it to look without the proper skincare routine inside and out. But that’s for another time!I start with a freshly washed and moisturised face and lips as a solid base for the rest of the products.
1. Primer: The other day someone asked me what primer does and I couldn’t answer them, all I knew was that it did wonders! So I did some research! It prepares your skin for concealer and foundation, helping it to sit smoother and last longer. It conceals any flaws and minimises pore visibility.
3. Concealer: I then go in with a lighter shade of concealer to brighten up any dark areas and to cover up any little blemishes here and there.
7. Eyes: This part is totally optional and really depends on the kind of day that I’m having but this is my go to shadow look! Using the Naked 3 Palette by Urban Decay I place a coppery pink colour all over my lid and highlight the inner corner with a lighter pearly pink. I used that same pearly colour to highlight my brow bone. In the crease I added black shadow and blended it out to create a gentle smoky eye.
9. Lips: Lately I’ve been into trying out different lip colours, its also because my lips are reacting to a lip product I used so now they have little dark bits that I would very much like to cover up. For a gentle lip look, I dabbed this Rimmell lipstick over my lips for a light finish.
