Everyday Makeup favourites

Makeup September 15, 2014 Naomi

If you are anything like me then as much as you love all the makeup spilling out your makeup bag, and as much as you love throwing the latest Lipstick into your Boots shopping basket, You probably gravitate towards the same few trusty makeup items that you use time and time again.

My first must have product is my Bourjois perfect CC cream. This is a lovely lightweight product that gives just enough coverage and brightens up your face. I am not a fan of the heavier type foundations, and if I am having a good skin day then this is all I need. Formulated with Spf 15 and 24hr hydration,{Really 24hrs??} this has the anti redness, fatigue pigments that give your complexion a lift.

Next I like to apply my blusher. My current everyday fave is the Dior Healthy glow blush. Gorgeous compact and the perfect light pink colour, this adds a splash of colour to the cheeks. Not cheap though and there are some less pricey and just as good blushers out there.

My eyeshadow of choice is the Maybelline 24 hr colour Tattoo {There they go again throwing around the 24hr claims!!} and I like the shades On and On bronze and Permanent Taupe. Both are great for day time, and last well without smudging.

I like to curl my eyelashes next. I know all my fellow bloggers go wild for the Shu Uemura curlers but they are expensive for what you are getting, so I use some basic ones from Boots that I think work well enough. Next I apply my Bellapierre volume mascara{missing from big pic}, I love the dry formulation of this as it is so easy to control, the colour build up is great too.

Lastly on to lips. I have a couple of choices here, I am as most of my readers know a nude lip fan but when I want a splash of colour I am reaching for the Babylips in Pink shock. This is a beautiful Barbie pink and I love how pretty it looks. Though it is not majorly long lasting it is shiny, and I find it does not dry my lips out. My second favourite is the Nyx butter gloss in crème brulee. This is a seriously glossy and shiny nude pink lip product, and I love how it is not tacky, but it does look substantial on the lips, it also smells of vanilla ice cream!.

I find that this Everday look takes me about ten minutes to do and Is great for work or just nipping out to see a friend. I may add a bit of concealer if I need it, usually the soap and glory Kick ass one that I have mentioned before. I also like the Revlon lip butters and they are also a everyday must have for me.

    I think you’re right about having favourite picks. I love Armani eyeshadows, Dr Jart’s BB cream and anything by Bare Minerals.

    I recently had a clear out of makeup because I’m always using the same few products, so decided I didn’t need any of the others. Most days I just use mascara and an eyebrow pencil. Sometimes I’ll go wild and add some brown eyeshadow and a neutral lipstick lol

    I think most of us are guilty of not using half our makeup stash Mahala.x
