Hi everyone, how are you all today?
I have been in a bit of a makeup rut lately, and have pretty much been wearing the same look everyday throughout January. It’s quite simple and neutral compared to my usual makeup looks over the past year.
To prime my skin, I used the last little bit of my Body Shop Instablur Primer. I will be repurchasing this once I get paid. It is my favourite primer. It leaves a lovely flawless base without feeling too heavy on the skin. I love it!
For the face, I have consistently used my Bare Minerals Original Foundation. My skin has actually been behaving lately, so I’ve been able to wear less full coverage products. I’ve always found the original formula to be the best one to wear when you’re in a hurry; it lasts all day and blends out so quickly without caking up. I also doubled this up as my concealer around my eyes.
For bronzer, I used my old favourite; Bare Minerals Invisible Bronzer. This is still my favourite bronzer as it gives enough colour without being over-powering. It’s such a natural looking powder. To blush up my face, I’ve been going between Models Own’s Rock n’ Rosy Blush in Coral Petal. I cannot recommend these blushers enough. The formula blends out like a dream and they look so natural on the cheeks. As for highlighter, I’ve gone back to an old favourite; Urban Decay’s Afterglow in Firebird. This blends into the blush really nicely and gives such a pretty glow.
My Eyes have been kept really neutral lately. On my upper lids I have been reaching for MAC’s Paintpot in Indianwood. This is such a gorgeous colour and really compliments grey eyes. I did add a tiny amount of the Stila Magnificent Metals in Kitten Karma to the inner part of my eye. I don’t do this everyday, but I fancied a touch of glitter today. On my lower lash line I used the shade Constructivist from the Paintpot collection. I also used a tiny amount of this blended into the gold shade on my upper lid. The only other thing that I added to my eyes was mascara. I have been loving the Maybelline x Gigi Hadid Fibre Mascara lately. It doesn’t give me massive lashes, but it does lengthen them slightly, yet still remains quite natural. MY lashes don’t clump up at all when I use this.
To finish off my makeup, I have been going through the Bare Minerals Gen Nude Lipsticks. They are so pretty and are such a hydrating formula. Today I wore the shade Heaven, which is such a pretty mauve nude.
What has been your everyday makeup look?
Over February, I am going to attempt to do posts everyday again. Things have just been so hectic with work and I haven’t bought any new makeup lately, so I feel that I cannot do that many reviews. What sort of posts would you like to see this year? I really want to keep posting, but I don’t want to do tutorials only.
Have a lovely day guys!
