My Everyday Makeup

I love reading blogs and watching videos about what makeup people use on daily basis so I thought I would give you a peak into what is in my makeup bag! I have dry/ normal skin and I am quite sensitive to some products, so I tend not to switch around on items too often once I’ve found something that works for me.

Face makeup
Max Factor Xperience Weightless Foundation: 45 Raw Silk
A great foundation that is oil free and light weight so it doesn’t clog up your pores. This foundation is light to medium coverage, but can be built up to a much fuller medium coverage. I apply this with my Lydia Professionals F-010 foundation brush which I purchased from eBay.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer: 2 Light
This product is raved about so much and personally I think it deserves all the hype it gets! This concealer is a heavy coverage product that blends really nicely. I use this on blemishes and under my eyes.

Natural Collection Loose Powder: Neutral Translucent
Natural Collection is such a great brand. All the items are under £2 and their products, like the powders, work so well for me. This powder isn’t cakey feeling and leaves my skin quite matte. I apply this with my Body Shop Face and Body powder brush.

Natural Collection Blusher Powder: Pink Cloud
A great light pink blusher. I apply this with a Cosmopolitan blusher brush from Superdrug.

Eye makeup
Urban Decay Naked Pallet
One of my favourite makeup pieces of all time! I’m sure you’ve all seen this pallet and heard great reviews about it. I like to use Virgin (a shimmery white/ pink) on the lid and Naked (matte light brown) in the crease using the flat eyeshadow brush that comes in the pallet and a Prestige Shadow Sweep #104 brush.

Bourjois Eyeshadow Duo: 16 Crazy baby
This product was given to me by my friend and I don’t think they sell this anymore but the white shimmer colour is great as an inner-corner highlight.

M.U.A Eyeliner Pencil: Rich Brown
I love this eyeliner it’s so pigmented and creamy so it’s great to put above the lash line. M.U.A eyeliners are only £1. I would recommend checking them out, especially the brown as it’s much more natural looking than applying a black liner.

Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara: Glam Black
I remember getting this a couple of years ago and the first time I used this mascara I was like WOW! It makes my eyelashes so long and thick, it’s a staple in my makeup bag.

Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara: Black
This mascara does exactly what it says on the tin (well tube). It makes my eyelashes so volumised and black I just can’t live without it!

Lip makeup
Revlon Colourburst Lipbutter
When I heard about these being released in the US I wanted them right away! They eventually came out a few months later in the UK whilst Boots had a 3 for 2 offer on all cosmetics, so naturally I bought 3 in one go (Tutti Frutti, Berry Smoothie and Strawberry Shortcake). They’re so moisturising and have a lovely colour pay off!

These products create a natural look that is perfect for daily wear such as for college or sixth form. I hope you enjoyed this post and helped you if you’re looking for any new makeup to try out!

What are you makeup must haves?

  6. I picked up the Collection 2000 concealer today, I used years and years ago and then moved on to new products; I've ended up going back to this as it is great for darker marks that you sometimes get :)
