Everyday makeup!

I tend to keep my makeup the same on a daily basis, occasionally mixing up my eyeshadow if it tickles my fancy but this is what I do most days!

In the summer I am personally not a massive fan of using both foundation and concealer so I'll just use one of the two, at the moment I have been reaching for my foundation more often than not, I use 2 foundations, one that matches my skin colour and one to highlight. I use the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour foundation in (100) Ivory and to highlight I use the Colourmatix Liquid Foundation in Light. To set my foundation, I use a very small amount of the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in (001) Transparent and I only use this in my oily areas as I'm currently loving the way dewy skin looks and these foundations look lovely in my opinion when not powdered.

My eyeshadow can crease in a matter of minutes unless I use a primer and the primer that I swear by and would recommended to anybody that I crossed paths with is the MAC Prep+Prime Eye in medium dark. I have tried many different primers for my eyes, drugstore and high end and none of them have worked apart from this one, not even the Urban Decay Primer Potion which a lot of people love! I would 100% recommended this primer, I can't say enough good things about it!

I've been loving the look of bronze eyes at the minute, so to cut down on products to buy I use the same bronzer for my eyeshadow as I do for contouring! I use the NYC sunny bronzer which I'm personally not a massive fan of, however, it is the best bronzer that I have yet tried, I find it very easy to blend but it can sometimes look a bit cakey. When I use this on my eyes, to brighten it up a bit I use shade 4 from my MUA Undressed palette, I put a thin layer all over to lid then shade 1 in the inner corner to open my eyes up. To brighten my eyes up a bit further, I apply the 2True Easy Glide Kohl Pencil in (16) White to my waterline. For mascara I use Rimmel Scandal Eyes Show Off and Collection Longer Lash Lengthening Mascara, I swear by both of these mascaras and use them everyday, they don't get clumpy at all and the Collection one lengthens my lashes an amazing amount! I recommend these to everybody! For eyeliner I am currently trying out the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner in black, I haven't been using it for long but so far I am having mixed feelings about it.

I have been filling my eyebrows in for a while now and I have tried many different things to try and get it how I love and I have finally found it! first of all I use the Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in (004) Black Brown to lightly fill them in and then I go in with MAC's Wedge eyeshadow and then set them with a clear mascara, I personally love how this makes my eyebrows look!

I switch up what blusher I use on an almost daily basis but recently I have been reaching for Sleek's blush in (933) Coral, this blusher has the smallest bit of shimmer in it (only noticeable if you look very very closely) its a lovely natural looking shade and is such a nice texture, I would recommened everybody to try Sleek's blushes if you haven't already!

As for my lip, I have been using Rimmel's Lasting Finish Lipstick in (210) Coral In Gold with Model Co's Shine Ultra Lipgloss in Berry Pink over the top!
