I am back with another beauty blog except instead of reviewing a product I thought I would tell you what I use on a daily basis.
First Step – Get that face ready
After washing my face, I use my Dermalogica Clear Start Daytime Treatment & use that all over my face, once I have rubbed that in completely I use Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer to prime my face. Both of these products I use all the time and are my holy grail products.
Second Step – Foundation & Concealer
The foundation that I am currently using is the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless in the shade 120 Classic Ivory (Normal to Oily), I previously used just the Fit Me which I also liked I have always manly used Maybelline products on my face. I have wanted to try alternative high end products but to be honest they are so expensive that I worry about the colour and what it will look like. I think when you have used one particular brand for so long it’s sometimes hard to change it up. Next I go in with my Maybelline Super Stay 24H Concealer, I take this under my eyes in a triangle shape and do three lines on my forehead. I then blend that in with currently a cheapo wedge from I think Kmart as my beauty blender was recently destroyed by my sisters dog ( AHHH) To set the concealer I use the Sephora Beauty amplifier smoothing & brightening powder on a cheap beauty blender & the Maybelline Matte Maker Mattifying powder to set the rest of my face, I do this using the Real Techniques Powder Brush.
Third Step – Contour & Blush
So for work I don’t typically use the glow kit, just because it’s expensive and I just like to do a basic look for work as a glam make up look isn’t really required. My next go to is the Models Prefer Contour Collection in the powder form. I take the lightest counter shade and apply that to my cheek bones and I also then apply it to my temples I use the Real Techniques Stippling Brush to blend that in. I then use Maybelline Master Hi-Light blush in the colour Coral as my blush & that to my cheeks with a Real Techniques Blush Brush. Lastly to highlight that face I use my Urban Decay Naked Illuminated in the shade Luminous and I apply that with a Real Techniques Setting Brush, I take the highlight on to the bridge of my nose, cupids bow, under my eyebrows & above my contour on the cheek bones.
Fourth Step – Brows & Eyes
For my eyes as I’m only going to work I normally don’t put on an eye shadow as that’s another thing that I have to do and who can really be bothered, but the eye shadow palette that I use on those days I can be bothered is the Maybelline The Nudes, just using a Real Techniques shading brush. If I don’t put on any eye shadow then I will put on the Rimmel Soft Kohl eye liner pencil just to have something there to darken up my eyes. For my brows I use the Maybelline Brow precise, lastly for my mascara which this is something that I need to get better at as I honestly suck at applying it but I use the Too Faced Better than Sex which I find is good for me even though I do it really crap it still manages to look good.
Final Step – Set
To set it all so it stays all day I use the Australis Make Up Finishing Spritz which I know I have raved about in a previous blog but it is honestly amazing!!
That’s it, that’s my go to make up products for a daily makeup look for work.
Let me know if you try any of the above products I have mentioned or if you have any Mascara applying tips I would love to hear them.
PS: Sorry for the horrible photos as you can see I use all of these products a lot.
