We all have a morning return, and part of my morning routine is, ‘putting my face on’ as some people like to put it.
I have always loved makeup, and for me, for 10 minutes in the morning applying my makeup, is actually quite therapeutic. I put on some music, or a podcast, or maybe a YouTube video, and it is 10 to 15 minutes of ‘me’ time. I enjoy doing my makeup, although some times at 6am it can be quite a core.
Over the years I have experimented with different brands, but as of late I have really found what works well on my skin type, and brands that I really do love. My everyday makeup is my basics, not necessarily something I would wear on a night out (as I love playing around with colours and different ‘themes’), but it is perfect for my everyday life.
Finding the right foundation has always been a bit of a challenge. I have combination skin, which is also acne prone, and I can get very greasy throughout the day. For about the last year and a half, IT Cosmetics CC Cream has been my go too. Not only does it last all day, it also doesn’t bring my face out in spots – so it is a win win situation. For concealer I tend to alternate between NARS Creamy Concealer and NYX Makeup Concealer Wand – both of which give me the coverage I want and help to clear any blemishes or red spots. To finish of my ‘face’, the Charlotte Tilbury is my go to, and as a brand is my favourite out there (isn’t everything CT perfect though? From the actual makeup, to the packaging, and just the brand in general). The Charlotte Tilbury ‘Bronze and Glow’ bronzer and highlight is my holy grail product. I don’t think I have actually used another bronzer since first picking up the palette nearly three years ago. The highlighter is also perfect for everyday wear. If I am going for a more evening look, then I tend to swap the highlighter out for something more out there.
Eyeshadow palettes are my thing, from Urban Decay Nakd palettes, to Tarte and Too Faced, I have a huge collection and I try to rotate between them all. If I want a more pinky eye, I will go for the Too Faced Peach Palette, or for a more natural brown look, I will always go for Tarte Taretlette In Bloom. As for eyebrows, my L’oreal Brow Artist Genius Kit gives me my full brow look, finished with my Charlotte Tilbury Brow Gel. My mascara, similar to my eyeshadow, will always change. At the moment I am loving the Too Faced ‘Better than Sex’ mascara. However, I am also a huge fan of L’oreal Paradise, Benefit Rollerlash, and Maybelline Lash Sensational.
And of course, to finish the whole look off, it’s the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.
