Everyday Makeup

Everyday Makeup


My actual everyday makeup is… well, it’s no makeup, but as that post would be mighty boring and short, this is my everyday-makeup-when-I-actually-wear-makeup-makeup šŸ™‚

I’m pretty sure that the order in which I apply isn’t the ”correct’ way but it works fine for me.

I start with the benefit primer on my T-Zone, then draw in my eyebrows with the Rimmel pencil. I put the Stay Don’t Stray primer underneath my eyes and follow it up with a damp sponge (or the concealer brush) and concealer and put that underneath my eyes. I curl my lashes and apply some mascara. I use the Urban Decay spray and then buff my Tarte powder all over my face with the accompanying brush. I contour (word used loosely there, as my ability is sub-par) with Sleek and the Real Techniques expert face brush, I put some on the highligher on the high point of my face with the setting brush, and then use the expert face brush again to apply my Sleek blusher. I apply a bit more mascara and then put on the MAC eye shadow with the Chilli Pepper brush and that is me done. The time is takes can vary greatly, sometimes it’s a quick 5 minutes, other times it can be half an hour.


Tarte Cosmetics Airbuki Bamboo Powder Foundation Brush, Real Techniques; expert face brush, setting brush, concealer brush & miracle complexion sponge, Rimmel eyebrow pencil, benefit stay don’t stray primer, benefit the pore professional.


Urban Decay all nighter setting spray, Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Cover Airbrush Powder Foundation, No7 eyelash curlers.


Sleek; face contour kit (light), blush (rose gold), Urban Decay Perversion mascara, Collection lasting perfection concealer, Chilli Pepper eyeshadow brush, MAC eye-shadow (satin taupe).

Obviously they are all my favourites, as I choose to use them on everyday-makeup-when-I-actually-wear-makeup, but some of the standouts for me include;

  • Tarte Powder Foundation – the most expensive powder I have ever bought, and considering I had to only purchase it offline through guesswork as to what colour I would be, it was a risky buy for me, but completely worth it, I love it. It is long lasting, mattifies, evens out any pigmentation issues/redness, brightens my skin, and gives me the option of coverage (if you want extra coverage you just buff more in. Simple).
  • Real Techniques sponge – works brilliantly, the finish result for concealer is greatly improved.
  • Collection Concealer – I don’t really feel the need to say anything about this, it is well known to be a brilliant concealer at an even better price.
