My Everyday Makeup

So, for this post, I will be doing my everyday makeup for you!

The products I use;

First off, I usually cleanse and prime my face, but I forgot to take the photo's of the products. However, I use Garnier Simply Essentials cleansing lotion, and NYC's Face Primer.

I then use my foundation, which is Collection's Lasting Perfection foundation with SPF 20, in the shade Biscuit.

I use one pump of it on the back of my hand, and then use my double-ended powder and foundation brush from H&M to blend it evenly.

I then use my Liquid Concealer in Light from Miss Sporty to cover any blemishes and my under-eye circles.

 After my concealer, I usually do my eyeliner. I have recently purchased a new eyeliner from Primark. I was always skeptical about their makeup, as personally, I thought it would be cheap and tacky (don't get me wrong, I love shopping in Primark, it was just something about the makeup), however, my sister bought this eyeliner and raved about it so much, I decided to try it myself.... and I was surprised! This eyeliner is a lot better than some of the top name brands that I have tried, it is so easy to apply and remove, and I have found it doesn't smudge throughout the day, which I love! (Plus, it was only £1, bargain!)

After my eyeliner, I curl my lashes and apply my 2true mascara, which makes my lashes super long! I then go over them with my NYC Showtime mascara, and I also apply this to my bottom lashes, as I have stopped wearing eyeliner on my waterline. I love these mascaras, and I have found that I don't need to top them up throughout the day, which is a bonus.

 Once I have done my lashes, I then move onto my eyebrows. I usually comb them through, but recently I have been using a clear mascara to keep them in place, which is a God-send! They stay right where I want them and I don't understand why I haven't tried this before! I highly recommend this!

 After I have done all that, I then use my NYC Smooth Skin pressed powder in the shade Naturally Beige. This powder makes my skin so soft and smooth and gives it a flawless look, as well as keeping all my makeup in pace.

Now onto lips... I change my lip products quite often, but today, I decided to go for a simple look; I used my 2true lip gloss in the shade 6 (this product doesn't have a name), and then I used my Nivea lip balm over the top. This gave my lips a slight gloss, and also made them feel soft and hydrated. Like I said, I change this everyday, so this was just a combination I decided to try today.

Thank you for reading my everyday makeup, and I shall see you all again soon for another post!
