My Everyday Makeup

by - 10:00

This week I put a poll on Twitter (@caitxsteele) asking you what kind of post you would like to see, and the majority voted for my everyday makeup routine! So here is the makeup that I wear everyday! (well, everyday that I wear makeup). 

I won't be going into detail about each product, but just know that every single product I show is well and truly loved by me. I'll also link each product so if you want, you can grab it for yourself. 

#1 Prime

To prime my skin, I use two products. The first I use is MAC Prep + Prime Skin (this is only a sample size one, the full size is 30ml). Secondly, I like to use the L'Oreal Paris Code Lumiere BB Cream. I like using a BB cream as a primer because it helps to even out my skin before applying foundation, and I also find that everything just looks better and lasts longer when I use this. I can't find a link for this anywhere (not sure if they sell it anymore or what??) but any BB cream will do in my opinion. 

#2 Foundation

For my foundation I love to mix together L'Oreal True Match in the shade Rose Ivory and the BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation in the shade Fair, by doing this it gives me a good medium coverage and a natural luminous finish (I gotta have that glow). I always seem to underestimate how pale I am when buying foundation, so to fix this problem, I've been mixing in a few drops of The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops in the Lightening formula. 

#3 Concealer

For concealer I use the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in the shade Ivory, I put this under my eyes, on my forehead, down my nose and chin for a brightening effect.

#4 Powder

To set all of that, I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in the Transparent shade. I've repurchased this powder time and time again and it never fails to impress me.

#5 Contour & Highlight

Contour and highlight is one of my favourite parts of doing my makeup, and I love using this Sleek Contour Kit in the shade Light. The contour shade is great for both bronzing and contouring and the highlight shade is just beautiful, I've actually received compliments on this highlight before so you know it's good! (also you can see that mine is very well loved...and by loved I mean dirty as hell)

#6 Brows

What is a girl without her brows?! The Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe is a fairly recent addition to my collection, but I don't even want to think about what my brows were like before I had this. I set my brows in place using L'Oreal Paris Brow Artist Plumper in the shade Light/Medium.

#7 Eyeshadow

I've been reaching for my Makeup Revolution Affirmation Palette A LOT recently! It's beautiful and for only £8 you can't go wrong. If you haven't tried anything Makeup Revolution, I would highly suggest that you do. I don't really have one eyeshadow look that I wear everyday, but if eye makeup looks are ever anything that you would like to see, then let me know!

#8 Eyeliner

I rarely wear pencil liner anymore but I nearly always wear liquid liner, and recently my favourite one has been the L'Oreal Paris Super Liner Ultra Precision in Black. I usually create a wing liner with this. 

#9 Mascara

I don't know what it is, but I have never found a highstreet mascara that has impressed me, perhaps it's just because I have really bad lashes, I don't know. But, the only mascaras that I've ever found that have done a good job for me are higher end mascaras, and recently I've fallen in love with this Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara in Black Satin. 

#10 Lips

Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm a sucker for a matte lip, I pretty much despise anything glossy on the lips. My everyday lip for weeks has been the Kyle Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick and Lip Liner in Dolce K, such a beautiful, wearable nude. The colour looks different on pretty much everyone, and I've absolutely fallen in love with the shade.

#11 Finish

To finish off my makeup and set it all in place, I use the Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Amazing Makeup Fixing Spray. To be completely honest, I don't even know if it really does work (pretty sure it does), but I can't not use it and this is the second bottle I've purchased. If you're looking for a cheaper setting spray, this would be a good one to look into.

And that's it for my everyday makeup! Tell me what your everyday makeup products are in the comments below, I'd love to know (I'm a poet and I didn't know it)
