This is my go to makeup for day time when I want to make a little bit of an effort. I do like not wearing makeup some days and sometimes I’ll just wear concealer, mascara and do my brows. However, when I have and want to look nice I love spending time on my makeup. I love this look because its very feminine and perfect looking but nothing too over the top.
I have been using these primers since I got my trial prom makeup done 6 years ago. I mix the Benefit Pore Fessional and That Gal. This creates a smooth base for makeup but also adding some glow. I don’t wear much foundation so I love the L’Oreal Infallible Shaping Stick. I just put it straight onto my face and blend it with a brush or beauty blender. I can use as little or as much as I want/need.
For concealer I use Mac Studio Finish Concealer in the shade NW20- I usually only use it under my eyes. The pot is really handy to carry around and top up during the day. To finish off my base, I use the NYX Studio Photogenic Powder largely just under my eyes and a little bit around my chin.
I’m a Benefit Gal. No suprises, I continue to use the Benefit Hoola bronzer and Hervana blush to add colour back to my face. I then use the Becca Shimmering Perfector in Opal to add highlight to my cheekbones, nose and brow bones.
My brow routine doesn’t really change. I use Barry M It’s a Brow Thing in the brown shade to add colour and shape where I need it and then I use L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper to hold them in place.
For my eyes I use the Naked Smokey Palette. I use a brown colour in my crease and outer corner, a nude shade across the lid and a white shimmery colour right in the inner corner. I sometimes also add the NYX eye-shadow in the shade Heat (a burgundy shade) to the outer corner to add some colour. I then like to add a thin line of eyeliner and a little flick. I use the L’Oreal Infallible Super Slim eyeliner. I then finish it with Benefit Roller Lash mascara.
I change up my lipstick frequently depending on how I’m feeling and what I’m wearing but these are a few of my favourites.
