Everyday MakeUp!

 My everyday makeup look!
In this blog post i'll be rambling a fair bit so please...go get your self a drink, make your self comfortable and read on. Little cheesy i know but its true this post will be really long because im going to show other products too (the ones that may be better suited for the spring time than the ones in this picture.

Lets start with the base! Now i don't always use all these products for example the days that my skin doesn't need as much coverage i only use the 'Dream Lumi touch concealer'. My skin colour is normally a medium shade (my face is slightly lighter than my body) and concealer wise its a shade '03' however because i want a more highlighting effect under my eyes and simply because the shade 03 for the lumi touch is far too dark i use 02.
The products get applied with these brushes
the stippling brush by 'Real Techniques' and a simple blush brush by Primark (yes very professional i know!) 

To add colour to my cheeks i love using cream blushes! Mainly because it means i don't have to faff (mess around) with a brush trying to work out exactly where to put the powder blush. A cream blush means i can simply using my finger and the end result will look much more natural and less 'cakey'.

The Cream blush that i have been using everyday is the Revlon PhotoReady in 'Flushes rougissant 200' i think that they have another shade which is a more creamy nude, but i like that girly pink flush in the cheeks! 

This blush lasts a really long time and unlike other products that look shiny and/or greasy this is a very matte colour although it may not look like that in the pot. 

Eyes! Now i'm not very dramatic or have a complicated eye makeup, i simply use a couple coats of mascara (normally one of the ones in the picture) and sometimes i line my upper tight line with black kohl eye liner! 

If you want your eyes to still look natural but more awake try wearing a little white eye liner in the inner corner of your eye and on the bottom water line!

Now the lips! AKA the only part of my makeup where the colours keep changing! I normally use one of the balm stains by Revlon either the shades 001 or 005 however considering spring/summer is just around the corner i've been switching my normal colours to more bright, girly ones! So i go with the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 16 and the Maybelline Vivid in Shocking coral. Both very pretty for the summer and spring time!
