My Current Everyday Makeup Routine

Starting with the bases, I am completely obsessed with my Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in NW10. This shade leans slightly warmer on my skin tone so I really need to make sure it's blended properly into my neck. To do so I use my Keshima Flat Top Kabuki Brush. To blend it in further, I use my fingers to make sure there is zero streaking and that there is no awkward line along my jawline.

After my foundation is blended in I apply my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in the shade 'Fair'. I have a lot of scarring and a few spots so I carefully dab it onto the affected area until it's 'settled' and blended. I find that applying my concealer after foundation is easier as the foundation doesn't rub it off. I also use the same concealer to conceal any dark circles and brighten underneath my eyes to make me look more awake. I apply it directly under my eye area, using the same dabbing motion.

Next is the powder. I have been completely loyal to my beloved MAC Skinfinish Natural in Light Plus for over a year now. I 'dip' my RT Powder Brush into the powder and spread across my face, mainly using it on my t-zone as that's where my face gets the most oily. I find that this powder isn't cakey at all which is always a massive thumbs up from me. 

After the powder comes my favourite blush, like ever. A big statement I know. It is the Sleek Rose Gold Blush.It was so popular when I first began my blog. I apply the blush with my Real Techniques Blush Brush and sweep it across the apples of my cheeks. Sleek Rose Gold is a natural shade and has a beautiful glowy effect on the skin so there's no need for me to apply a highlighter. It's like a blush and highlighter all in one. 

To minimise any cakiness and give my makeup that dewy kinda look, I spritz a light mist of my MAC Prep and Prime Fix Plus to both sides of my face and directly in the front. 

For the brows, I fill them in with my new brow favourite, the Anastasia Beverley Hills Dipbrow Pomade in the shade 'Medium Brown. It's the perfect shade for my light brows and it really makes a huge difference. 

And next up is the eye makeup. I used to be the kinda girl that was scared of eyeshadow but now I've really gotten into it since I received my Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette for Christmas. I have two different eye looks at the moment. If I'm going for a quick eye makeup look I apply the shade 'Push Up' all over the lid. For a smokey eye I use 'Silk Teddy' from the crease upwards, 'Push Up' all over the lid blending it in softly and then also blending the shade 'Erotica' into the crease and 'v shape'.

After the eye makeup is completely blended I apply my favourite liquid liner, the L'Oreal Superliner Ultra Precision, creating a lovely cat flick. 

For mascara, I use the Benefit Rollerlash Mascara. I have been in love with it since I got the sample size from a magazine. To use, I wriggle the brush from side to side and run it through the roots of my lashes to the ends. It transforms my lashes completely, lengthening and volumising them.

After the mascara has dried, I tight line my upper lashes using my all time favourite Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in the shade 'Jet Black'. 

Lastly, is the lipstick. Undoubtedly the best part of my makeup routine. I am a complete lipstick junkie. To tone down the smokey eye(or if I'm really feeling a nude lip) I use my favourite nude lipstick of the moment, MAC Patisserie. It has a browny-pink tinge to it, so it's the perfect nude shade for me.
