My Everyday Makeup

I've pretty much got my everyday makeup routine sorted for when I'm at work and somehow manage to do it in about 10 minutes everyday - and that includes my winged liner! Typically, I wear concealer, foundation, a base eyeshadow, winged liner, mascara and something on my lips. I thought I'd share with you the products I mainly use, just in case you were interested.

For my base, after I've cleansed and moisturised my skin I either use the Seventeen Stay Time concealer, followed by my No7 Essentially Natural foundation (I was colour matched as Calico) or my Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation in Blondie, which I use to conceal spots (with my Ecotools Airbrush Concealer Brush) and then use all over my face. I use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush for my No7 foundation, or my Ecotools Angled Kabuki if I use my Lily Lolo foundation.

I then start on my eyes, and use my (extremely loved) Fleur De Force Lunar Rose Quad, in the lightest shade. I cover my lids with that, to stop my liner from smudging up during the day if my lids get oily. I then move onto my eyeliner, and use my trusty Soap & Glory Supercat Liner. I've tried a few felt tip liners over the past couple of years, but this is always the one I go back to. I've done winged liner pretty much everyday for the last couple of years, so it only takes me about 5 minutes to get done now. I do think part of that is down to how easy the eyeliner is to use!

I then go for my No7 Velvet Lash mascara, which is quite a natural one just to finish off my eyes. My eyebrows are quite thick, and also have a good shape so it depends how I'm feeling as to whether I fill in the slightly gappy parts. If I do, I typically pick up the Makeup Revolution Brow Kit which I've had for a few years, or the Soap & Glory Brow Archery which I've got recently. Finally, I use my Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub, my Burt's Bees Lip Balm, and then will sometimes add a lipstick on top. I've been loving the NYX Matte Lip Creams, as well as the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Matte-Lip. I also very recently picked up MAC's Mehr and am loving that at the moment.

That's more or less the look I go for most days, unless I feel like adding a little more eyeshadow or some blush/bronzer. I am quite pale so typically avoid bronzer that'll make me look orange, and also have quite pink cheeks already so don't usually add the extra blusher. Do you have any go to products that you use daily?
