My Current Makeup Routine

When I have found a collection of makeup that I am happy with I tend to stick with it for a while, because it is easy and accessible when it comes to running around for school or just on a general day to day basis. So I thought that it would be the perfect opportunity to show you what I am currently loving when it comes to my ‘Everyday Makeup Routine’!

Firstly, here is a little background information on my skin! I have combination skin, so in certain parts (particularly the T zone) of my face can usually get quite oily, however if I am breaking out because of the lovely hormones women are given, then those areas tend to dry out quote quickly. So I tend to have a range of products that cover all skin types! 

Foundation: For me foundation can be quite a tricky process of firstly finding the right formula and shade for my skin tone. As I said, when I find a product that I am loving then I will stay with it for a while and repurchase it a couple of times. However, as there are so many new products on the market, I am always eager into trying out different ones. But I am always sceptical on trying new foundations, because as I have previously had quite serious breakouts, the scars are still on my skin (they have gone down considerably, I am not trying to make it sound super serious at all!) but I have recently come across the love for Models Prefer foundation in shade 1211 Ivory, which has a natural matte finish after the application and is medium to full cover. I am more than happy to go into more depth in a separate review if that is something that you would all like to read?

Concealer: For me concealer is one of the most challenging products for me in the line of makeup. Once I have applied the foundation, it is hard to conceal areas on my face without making them to dark, make the dry areas stand out or create a thick over layer. So for me I have been loving the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and I have written about it in much more detail over on another blog post I did last week here! So for more information on that, head on over and give it a read. Just a little side note for you all I apply both my foundation with the Real Techniques Buffing brush or Expert Face brush, which by far are my favourite makeup brushes as well. 

Powder: One Heck of a Blot Powder by Soap & Glory is hands down an absolute miracle and has to be my favourite face powders ever! Once applying your foundation and/or concealer it absolutely changes the look of your skin with a few swatches of the powder, which I use the Real Techniques Powder Brush for. Once again I am going to do a review on this product when I have used for a little longer and can tell you my whole opinion on it. 

Blusher: The Sleek Lace Blusher (unfortunately I cannot find this product online, but I am sure it will be in a beauty store somewhere!) is my go to blusher and I won’t go into to much detail about it here because I did a separate review about it here. All I have to say is that it contains three gorgeous colours that are so natural looking and brighten up your skin in a second. 

Bronzer: Bourjois Paris Delice de Poudre, is the classic chocolate block bronzer that is absolutely stunning and glows your face perfectly. I do find that you need very little on your brush otherwise you will have a very dark defined bronzed look.

Mascara: Mascara has to be one of my favourite makeup products to experiment with, because there are always new brands launching different, formulas and styles. I must admit I always have over a handful of tubes on the go. (*Guilty) Great Lash by Maybelline is amazing for lengthening your lashes whilst still keeping them minimum in darkness, so that they do not over power your eyes. (That is personally how I see it, as my eyes are quite small! haha)

Eyebrow pencil: I don’t usually fill in my eyebrows on a day to day basis for school, because to be honest I have not found the right product for making them look natural, not to dark and over the top. However, I do like to use the mini brush on the end of this Rimmel Professional Eyebrow pencil, because it is perfect for shaping and grooming them. (If that is even a thing?)

If you all wouldn't mind leaving a comment down below of what is in you current makeup routine or your Top 3 products, so that I can get some ideas of future products to try out. I would love to hear your opinions and any recommendations! Have a wonderful day and stay tuned for my next post very soon!
