MY EVERYDAY MAKE-UP ROUTINE

16:58


So today I thought I would share with you the makeup products that I have been using most recently and give a mini review on each of the products. So keep on reading to find out more and please comment below!


The foundation I have been using recently is the Rimmel 'True Match Perfection' foundation, which, I have to admit, I really didn't like when I first used it as I felt that it was really cakey and made my skin look much worse then it was. However the more I used it, the more I liked it and I now think that it makes my skin look pretty flawless. The coverage is good and can be built up to a pretty full coverage and doesn't look like you have layers and layers of makeup on. I don't think that this colour is my 'true match' as it looks quite orange in some lights against my pale skin so I have to make sure I blend it very well, especially around my jaw line and into my neck to avoid a tide line!


This concealer is a new purchase which I got because I have seen so many great reviews and for the price, I felt I had to give it a go. So far I am really liking it! It is quite thick which is something to bear in mind if you don't like something heavy under your eyes, however I think I need full coverage, especially on the school days! It is also quite pink which is good for under eyes as it cancels out the dark blues. I also think it wakens your whole face, more so than the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer which I used to use. 


Now, as you can see, this is a very old product, and was actually my mums before she gave it to me. This is the benefit brow shaping kit. My mum only used the left side which is the wax, on her brows, as it was quite light and the perfect shade for her brows but the powder,on the right, was too dark. I have quite dark eyebrows so the powder is actually great for my brows and I find that it does last for quite a few hours without the wax. It is also quite a warm brown so if you prefer more ashy colours then this shade may not be for you.



This mascara is amazing. It is the Bourjous 'Push Up Volume Glamour' in ultra black. When I first applied it, my eyelashes where literally up to my eyebrows, they were so long! As I wear glasses, this wasn't the best, but it was still pretty great! However, after about two weeks, it seemed to dry down so that less product was coming out so my lashes were a more natural length which I think I prefer for a day to day basis and they always look really full and long so I would definitely recommend this to anyone. 


I have to say I was a little bit disappointed with this powder. I find that when I try to get the product onto the brush, it goes everywhere and a huge cloud of powder comes off. Which also means that it hasn't lasted as long as I would like my powders to last. On my skin I think it looks cakey and shows any dry areas or spots I have which is not what I want. For the price, I don't think that you can really complain and I'm only still using so that it isn't a waste, but I don't think that I will be re-purchasing it once it is finished. 



Now I love this palette! This is the Make Up Revolution 'Ultra Blush Palette' in Golden Sugar. I first saw this on Intsagram and just thought it looked stunning! There are two bronzers, or contour colours depending on the colour of your skin, and the rest, I would say are highlighters with the top-middle-right ( if that makes sense!) possibly passing as a blush. I use this everyday as a slight bronzer, just to put a subtle bit of colour into my face now that summer is (slowly) approaching . The highlighters are so pigmented and beautiful. This palette is just something everyone should have! 


This is the contour palette from Sleek and was the first contour palette I ever bought, however the blush is the thing that really makes this palette for me! It is quite pink but is still subtle on the cheeks and doesn't make you look like a clown. It also has slightly glittery which just wakes up your whole face and gives you a beautiful, healthy glow. I think they sell this in a single pan and will definitely buy it soon, as I'm nearly hitting pan! 



And last of all, lipstick! During the day I tend to either wear just some lip balm or a very subtle lipstick that just brings a bit of colour to my face. This is the Estée Lauder Pure Colour Envy lipstick in Insatiable Ivory. This is my first high-end lipstick and, as you can see, I use it a lot! It has a very glossy finish which makes it very easy to wear everyday and it still quite opaque so I only need one swipe and I'm done! This does mean that it doesn't stay on for very long which is a bit annoying as I don't like to re-apply my lipstick but it is still a lovely lipstick and great for every day use! 

So there it is! These are the products that I have been wearing on a day to day basis and I hope these mini reviews help in some way!
