My Daily Make-Up Routine...


Happy Thursday everyone! The long weekend is almost upon us :)

I've had a few emails and Instagram comments lately asking about my make-up, so I thought I'd share a few products that I use on a daily basis! The above was a more natural weekend look and I've included today's make-up below, which was a bit heavier for an event at work!


Clarins Beauty Flash Balm is one of my favourite products to give a lovely glow to the skin and it's great as a primer. I am constantly changing my mind about foundations and love experimenting but lately I've been turning to Benefit's Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow. It's lightweight yet gives good coverage and it definitely brightens my complexion! I picked up the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer last week and I'm loving it. The flat tipped applicator is a nice size and it goes on like a dream - like the Benefit foundation it feels very light on the skin and conceals even the darkest circles!


For my eyeshadow, I use Clarins 'The Essentials' Palette, which was a special Christmas edition. It's quite similar to the Naked Palettes - I just can't get enough neutral browns! I like Maybelline Kajal Kohl Liner if I'm wearing eyeliner during the day. Lancome's Le Crayon Khol is also lovely for under the eyes when I want to go a bit darker! I'm still obsessed with my Benefit Rollerlash mascara - read my original post about it here.

I use Maybelline Brow Satin to lightly fill in my brows and have them threaded every few weeks to maintain their shape!

I set my base with MAC powder - either Mineralize Skinfinish  or Studio Careblend in Medium.
Benefit's Hoola is my go-to bronzer and Hot Mama by The Balm is my absolute favourite blusher. It's a lovely rose gold tone!


Nars 'The Multiple' in Copacabana is one of my all time favourite highlighters and I also love Mary Lou-Manizer by The Balm. (which I smashed this week and need re-purchase - boo!) 


And finally onto lips! I'll usually stick to nude tones during the day using JLO's Nude by L'oreal teamed with MAC Boldly Bare Lip Liner.




And that's it! Hope you enjoyed my picks :)

Now, we're off to have some cake to celebrate Mum's Birthday!

We'll be back with some Shiny Moments tomorrow :)
