I thought I would do a different type of post today as I don't normally share much about my beauty routine and in the past I have had a few of you ask me what makeup I use and how I style by hair (this post is coming soon). The pictures above actually go in order of how I like to apply my makeup in the morning, I even have then in draws in this order!
I first start with my YSL Touch Eclat Radiant Foundation, I have been using this for the past 6 months and love it as it gives my skin a nice dewy look, which is great, considering my skin can look quite dry. I then cover up the bags under my eyes, redness around my nose and any unwanted blemishes with the Dermablend Corrective Stick Foundation, this is a life saving product as it is highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way and it doesn't cake over your blemishes. I then set my foundation and concealer with the Dermablend Setting Powder, which sets it for 24 hours, great for me as I'm always on the go. Next I add a bit of colour to my cheeks with the Armani Blusher and add a finishing touch with with the Touche Eclat to highlight my brow bone, cheek bones and the small philtrum above your upper lip (sorry for the science talk I couldn't find anything but this word to describe the intent above the upper lip!).
For my eyes I use the Naked Palette 2 and I mainly stick with Booty Call and Suspect shades for a more natural everyday look. I then line the upper lid with the Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Eye Liner as I like to create a slight flick in the corner. To finish I then use the L'oreal Paris False Lash Flutter, I have only been using this Mascara for 2 weeks but I can already see the difference and so far it has stood the test of the rainy British weather.
Depending on my look for the day I then choose between my L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection, I have the Julianne Moore shade or Kate Moss by Rimmel in shade 01 for the I mean business look.
Do you use any of the above in your routine? If so, let me know your thoughts as I always like to hear other people's perspectives.
