It's personal; My Daily Make-Up Routine

At this moment in time I wouldn't desribe my blog as a 'beauty' blog, because I don't post reviews on products I use but it's something I would like to introduce more into my blog. I struggle to give an opinion on a product and can never really describe what it does to my skin because I can never tell what it does. But I thought I would share my daily make-up routine. I find make-up alot easier to describe and it's the thing I prefer to read about over beauty products. 

These are the products I use on a daily basis and the order I use them in, I thought I could share a mini review on them all.

Dove Rich Moisturising Creme;

It's quiet a thick moisturiser but still blendable. It's not too thick that you have to rub it into your face and it's not too thin, it's nice and my use of it daily has really helped my dry skin.

No7 Lift and Luminate Foundation; 

The awkward thing about this foundation is that me and my grandma have it. It's for 45 - 60 year old woman but I really like it and I am on my second bottle. It gives a dewy glow to the skin and isn't quite a liquid, more of a thin mousse? But I love the glow and soft feel it gives to my skin, probably a youthful glow as it is for 45 - 60 year olds. I'd say it's buildable to full coverage but still looks natural.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer;

I jumped on the blogger bandwagon with this concealer and it's the best one I have tried so far. From a distance and when I tilt my head back you can't see my bags but straight on you can a little but I think it may just be the natural line under my eyes? I will just tell myself that! But it's not too thick and is easily blendable, it's a great coverage.

MAC Miniralize Skinfinish Natural;

I'm not a great one for reviewing powder as I like my foundation to be dewy and find that powders take that away, which is the point I know. But I like this one, I think it makes the skin flawless and doesn't look all cakey or make me orange like some powders.

MAC Wonder Woman Collection Triple Mineralize Skinfinish;

This has a MAC Mineralize bronzer, blusher and highlighter, all next to each other but seperate. I love them all but my daily one has been the blusher because it's mineralized and shines off the skin, adding to the dewiness and it really brightens up my face.

Urban Decay Primer Potion;

Everybody knows of this product, it keeps my eyeshadow from creasing and is just a good base, enough said.

Topshop Kohl Pencil in the Black Shade;

I have quite small eyes so use this on my upper lash line, the part under the lashes to help widden my eyes up. It's just as good as your typical black liner.

Naked 1 Palette;

I am stuck in a rut with the two shades Buck and Sin, I wear Buck (brown matte) in the outer corner and crease and I find this helps to open my eyes a bit more, and Sin is such a pretty shimmery pink and I wear this over the rest of the lid. I adore the two shades together, and the eyeshadows are such good quality and really last.

Clinque High Impact Mascara;

I really like this mascara but it doesn't length my lashes which is why I combine it with Topshop's Black Mascara to give it length. But I find the Topshop one on it's own makes my lashes clumpy.

Clinique Eyeshadow Quad;

This is the freebie you always get when clinique do offers. I use the darker brown it comes with to shape my brows, there pretty full anyway but I like them to be structured. The colour itself looks shimmery but this doesn't show on my brows so it's all good.


I'm not a big lip person so just use this to keep my lips moisturized, I use it every morning and have found that my lips never have very dry and uncomfortable stages anymore.

  10. I love the fact that you and your granma use the same foundation!!haha I also love clinique's high impact mascara, I'm a volume girl all the way so lengthening never bothers me, even though my lashes arent the longest in the world like! I'm definitely stuck in a rut with my eye shadows aswell, I stick to Wedge and Carbonize by mac every single day (and night) getting a little bored of applying them, but it goes with my face haha xxx

  11. Yay, someone else that uses No 7 lift and luminate! I have been using it for a while now despite my friends curiosity as to why I'm using 'anti-wrinkle' foundation haha. This is a great post :)

  12. I like this post, its well presented.

  13. Wow, you have so many tools and brushes! I always mean to use the appropriate brushes but ending up using fingers instead. I love Mac and Benefit products, mostly because I'm a sucker for pretty packaging - the Wonder Woman Mac compact is awesome!
