So I'm finally getting to grips with blogging, whoever knew it would be this time consuming and brain buzzing. With thanks to the blogging community i've managed to do a few things i had no idea about. Working a full time job and trying to blog is particulaly hard, working round everything else going on. Big resepct to all bloggers out!!
Anyways...since i have a bit of spare time I thought I'd share my daily makeup rountine with you.
I get up in the morning as close as possible to when i need to leave from work. I love sleep and I'm always tired so I need products that are not going to take long and i can just slap on so i can spend more time with my beloved bed!
I dont wear foundation on a daily basis, only really when I feel like I'm looking a bit worse for wear and I need to make a bit more of an effort. Being a beauty therapist i should try and make a bit more effort to look more glamourous, but I'd rather just sleep to be honest!
Maybelline mega plush volum' express mascara
I love this maybelline mascara its super quick to apply and gives great volume after a few coats. I did a full reveiw Here
Rimmel stay blushed liquid cheek tint
Now this liquid cheek tint, im still trying to make my mind up about it. I got it in this months glossybox, and when I saw it i was thinking 'oo I've been wanting to try a liquid/cream blush' now I don't know if there's a nack to applying this. I put a very small bit on my fingers and kind of blend on to the apple of my cheeks. It either goes well or I look abit like I've been punched in both cheeks! Never a good look really! I like the colour and it isn't as runny as I thought it would be so I'm going to give it a longer trial, to see if I can get on with it a bit more.
Artdeco colour couture lipstick in 645
One of my favourites this one, along with all my dark reds/purple colours at the moment! So easy to glide on and stays on for ages so its easy to glam up my make up when i feeling lazy. It doesnt dry my lips out either which is always a plus.
Benefit boi-ing industrial strength concealer
The holy grail in my make up case closely followed by my aldi lacure concealer pen. This would be one product I couldn't leave the house without! It hides anything from spots to dark circles. As it says its industrial strength but without being cakey and drying. I find I have to be careful with concealers under the eyes as no one wants premature wrinkles from products that dry the delicate skin out. I do go through this quite fast so I wish they had an industrial size!
MAC liquid last eyeliner in point black
Another kind of holy grail in my make up case. I came across this by accident about 4 years ago and have never stopped buying it. I was going on my first girls holiday and I hate not wearing mascara so I needed something to waterproof. But all the mascaras seemed to be more splash proof than actually waterproof. So i heard about a MAC mascara, but when i asked the assistant she said it would still be no good for me, as im like a child when there's a pool near! She suggested using the liquid last eyeliner to line my eyes so i brought it. After lining my eyes i looked...well quite frankly very strange! So I cleaned my favourite mascara brush and dunked it in and used it as a mascara which worked perfectly! Since then I now use it on the wet part of my eye (just above the lower lash line, if that makes sense) which I know makes your eyes look smaller but I prefer it there as I think I look abit alien eyed without it there. Its the only eyeliner that literally stays put all day, although it is a bit of a bugger to get off if I line the tops of my lash line!
Jelly pong pong 2-in-1 eyeliner and shadow
Does what it says on the tin this one. I tend to use this to just smudge very slightly under the lower lash line. Not too much though you dont want to look like a panda!
On a day to day basis I also just use this on the top lash line on the outer corners and smudge slightly. Its quite a thick pencil so i like to keep this sharpened to have a more precise line. I dont really tend to wear eyeshadow so i havent really tried this as an eyeshadow yet. I'm guessing it will look quite dramatic though.
