I wear makeup often, not every day but often. I have seen thousands of bloggers share their makeup routine and I am yet to share mine, I get asked a lot about what products I use so I thought I’d bring this post to you so you could see for yourself! Let me know in the comments your favourite go-to products!
My routine when it comes to skin stays the same always because I have spent years trying to find the perfect combination of products that actually lasts and looks great for my specific skin type/problems.
For a primer, I obviously moisturise beforehand with Cetaphil as it doesn’t feel oily on my skin or breaks me out. Depending on what I’ll be doing on the day like if I am going to work I’ll put some primer on so I am guaranteed more lasting wear, one of my go-to primers is by MUA and its the Pro Base Oil Free Primer. Then for a foundation, I use the Maybelline Superstay as it evens out all my texture and covers perfectly! It has been my favourite since 2018.
My under eyes are scarily dark so after foundation comes concealer, I have 2 go two concealers right now that I am trying to use up. They are FULL COVERAGE like scarily full coverage. one is the ELF Camo Concealer and the other is L’Oreal Infallible Concealer. For setting everything I use the Laura Mercier Powder, it doesn’t look cakey and sets everything for me.
I use the Benefit Hoola lite for contour and Cookie highlighter for a blinding highlight! It’s so stunning.
Brows are the window to the soul for me! Spend most of my time on eyeshadow and brows. My mum got me a Benefit brow set so I have every bit of brow equipment I need to get them looking stunning. I usually take pomade and a brow mascara as I like full-looking brows.
When it comes down to eyeshadow, it all depends on what mood I am. Recently I have been doing some neutral shades in the crease and then going in with a navy shade of shadow and smoking it out on my lash line. The everyday palettes I go to are the Blood Sugar or Blue Blood by Jeffree Star.
To seal everything in I use Morphe’s setting spray, it’s really good but genuinely not worth the price point. I was bought it for Christmas so I obviously use it but wouldn’t pay that much for it!
Lastly, time for lips. I like them to look glossy and big. I am all about glossy at the moment. My go-to gloss is by Barry M and it the XXL Swell, makes my lips look amazing and is extremely affordable. A word of warning if you do buy this gloss: it does sting to make your lips bigger, so if you don’t like that sensation do not buy. Once this is done, I am ready to go!
How is everyone doing during this hard time? I was doing really well and I cracked a bit recently. Been feeling very lonely as my friends haven’t really been reaching back out to me but I guess it is what it is. I pray everyone is ok and staying safe. Take care – Beth x
