My updated makeup routine.

Hello lovely people.

I have spent a lot of time testing out new products and I have recently discovered my perfect combination of products. I have been using the same routine and products (except lipstick which I change depending on the day) for about 2 months now and I love it. So here is my updated makeup routine.

Foundation for me is the thing I really struggle with. I want to find a good foundation for my normal/oily skin but I don't want it to look too matte. I discovered the Rimmel Match Perfection last summer and had it in a darker shade but decided to try it out in a lighter shade and I really like it. It gives a lovely healthy glow without looking too shiny and it works with my normal/oily skin. This is in shade 100 (ivory). I apply this with my real techniques expert face brush.

I then apply my collection concealer in shade 2 medium/cool. This concealer is amazing and I am definitely not going to change it any time soon. I apply this under the eyes and anywhere I need extra coverage and then I blend it in with my real techniques setting brush. Then under the eyes and on the lids I apply my Rimmel Match Perfection highlighter and concealer just to add a little brightness to my eyes. I then blend it in with my real techniques setting brush.

Setting powder:
I have been using this for ages now and I love it! It is the Rimmel stay matte powder in transparent. This stuff lasts all day and doesn't make you skin look full of powder.

For my eyebrows I have been loving the Maybelline brow pencil in Dark Blonde. I really struggle to find a pencil which fits with my blonde hair but this is the perfect colour. The only downside is that it doesn't last that long especially if you use it every day.

I got the naked 2 palette for christmas this year and have been using it non stop. Depending on the day will depend what colours I choose to wear but my favourites are Bootycall, Suspect, YDK and Tease.

I have been testing out this new mascara and I actually really like it. It is the Miss Manga mega volume mascara from L'Oreal Paris. I like the way it gives volume but leaves your lashes looking natural as well.

I love the Bourjois chocolate bronzer. This is in shade 51. I love the smell and the lovely colour it gives, it doesn't make you look orange.


My favourite blush every is the Rose Gold (926) blush from Sleek. The pigment is amazing and it gives such a rosy glow to your cheeks. I use it every day non-stop.

Depending on the day will depend what lip colour I will choose. My most used is the Revlon lipstick in shade 353 Cappuccino.

And that is my everyday makeup routine. Like I said before these are the products which I have tested out and loved so use them on a regular basis.

Let me know what your everyday staples are!
