Today I thought I would do a post slightly different post to my norm.. mainly because I don't normally have a post with so many like self/close up pictures unless i'm doing a swatch post. Anyhow, today I thought I would share with you one of my current go to everyday look.
All about that base: To begin with I start benefit porefessional primer. Now I don't normally bother with a primer mainly due to sheer laziness, but since reading sophie's post on primers I decided that it was time I should. I just squeeze out a little bit of this out and put it all over my face to give me a lovely smooth start. After that I apply collection's long lasting concealer on any spots or red areas (which I totally forgot to include in the picture). After doing that I apply my foundation which has currently been the estee lauder double wear foundation mainly because I've been neglecting it for so long, I thought it was about time it got more use. ps I plan to get a proper review on this done soon. Once that's all done I use my seventeen shimmer brick in pink bronze all over my cheeks. It gives that bronze, blushed and highlighted look all in one which I great when i'm either being lazy or in a rush. Oh and then I go over with my stay matte powder just to tone down any over blushing etc and to make the look last longer.
Now onto the eyes and the brows: Basically my love affair with the elf brow kit in light may have to die now that elf isn't distributing in the UK. I use the gel for where I think my brow needs to look a bit thicker or defined (basically give my eyebrow shape) and use the shadow for filling in my brows. Now that my eye brows are done I have just been using my mac paint pot in painterly (review on these here) all over the lid for a base colour or when I really can't be bothered I'll just use this and no eyeshadow. Then for proper eyeshadow I use my makeup revolution flawless palette, and the shade almost there in like the outer part of my lid crease and then blend it out. Sometimes I'll use smudge as well in the crease to give a more dramatic effect. Once i'm bored of doing eyeshadow I like to add some eyeliner to my top lash liner only from the outer corner to the middle to make my lashes look a bit fuller. Recently i've been using a lord and berry pencil mainly because I got this in the march look fantastic box, but this stage is completely hit and miss. Lastly for my eyes I just apply my perversion mascara by urban decay.. I've done a review on this so not going to bore you about it.
Lastly the lips: Basically I'm so thankful for miss ray fancy for doing such a lovely giveaway and bringing this lipstick to my attention. It's the elf lipstick in the shade nostalgic, which is a lovely everyday nude and will be reviewed properly along with a few others in the future.
That's it for this everyday look, please let me know what you think and whether you would like to see more posts like this in the future, possibly an night out look next time? Also hope you don't mind how I did the pictures just wanted to show the look from different angles and different parts..
speak soon, han xo
