Where do I start? I haven't written a blog post in such a long time. *Edit- I wrote this a few months ago then forgot to post, doh!* I've been so busy with life and working that this little space went to the back of my brain and just wasn't a priority. I want to get back into the swing of things though and that starts now! So i'm going to ease myself back into it with an updated everyday makeup routine. This is the makeup I've generally been wearing everyday for work, so it needs to be quick and easy! I don't have the time (or effort) to be spending ages on my makeup at 7 in the morning!


This is a decent enough primer, i'm not wowed by it and probably won't repurchase but it helps make my makeup last that little bit longer. 

This is still my go-to foundation. I change which foundation I use quite a lot, but always come back to this one whenever I want something that I know will look good no matter how badly my skin is behaving (which believe me is a lot at the minute!) and that i know will last. 

Still not found anything better, still my favourite. Simple.

Rimmel Match Perfection Loose Powder- Translucent 
I like to use this to set my under eyes and it works really well. Not cakey and looks natural, just what I want! 

I had a stint of trying out different powders when i ran out of this previously, often much more expensive. However for one reason or another, I just haven't got along with them and so its back to the trusty Stay Matte.


Benefit Hoola
One of my all time favourite bronzers, great for both all over bronzing and contouring, as it's matte and not too orange or brown.

Mac Well Dressed Blusher
Another product that no matter what, i always end up coming back to. Such a reliable colour and for the amount of times I've used it, there's still barely a dent!

Nars Copacabana Illuminator
First off, this is such a beautiful highlighter! Although it may seem pricey, I think it is so worth it and actually is good value for money. You get a lot of product in the tube and only need the tiniest amount, so I can see this lasting me a very long time. This gives such a nice glow to the skin and has a much more natural finish than a powder highlighter.

Eyes & Brows

Soap & Glory Archery 2 in 1 Brow Filling Pencil & Brush- Blondeshell
I get fed up with my brows fairly quickly and always change up what i'm using. At the minute, i'm back into this and really liking it. It's the perfect colour for my eyebrows, keeping them looking natural yet defined.

Maybelline Brow Drama- Dark Blond
I can now no longer do my makeup without setting my brows. This one sets them well and adds a hint of colour, so can also be used just on its own if your natural brow game is strong. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
On a typical work morning, I don't bother with eyeshadow. Just a quick curl of the lashes then a few coats of mascara to give long and voluminous lashes. Perfect!


Stilla Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick- Perla
At the minute this is my perfect nude/pink shade, I'm obsessed with it! The formula and finish are also amazing as it's matte but not drying yet still lasts all day. I can see me wearing this for a long time!
