Makeup I'm Currently Using Everyday


It seems to be I have gotten into a semi-strict routine with my makeup. I owe this all to rushed mornings trying to get off to work or realising i'm late for meeting up with a friend so I quickly just pull out what I know it good and works. So I thought I would share for you the no-fuss products that i'm loving.

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
This is such an easy base. So, so easy. I apply this either with my beauty blender or my real techniques face brush and it just looks good either way. I don't want to be using a high end foundation everyday so this is the perfect solution as it gives me a slightly dewy, medium coverage which lasts a decent amount of time.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
I actually got a sample pot of this bad boy a few months ago and LOVED IT. Then I forgot to purchase it, forgot how good it was, got another sample pot and realised "okay yes need to buy this asap". It's probably the most long-wearing concealer i've ever owned. It apparently sets on it's own but most days I will still add a bit of loose setting powder to really lock it in. It's very full coverage so I just build it up slowly. Definitely go get a sample pot of this to test it out because it's reallyyyy good!
Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder
I had a moment in MAC a few weeks ago where I went in with next-to-no makeup and the lady was treating me like a complete makeup novice. She asked if I knew about setting powders and I ever-so-cooly slipped out "oh yeah I have the Laura Mercier translucent setting powder for that" and it was then she realised I actually knew a bit about makeup and totally changed. I just found that funny. This setting powder is great for locking in your base. It's neverrr made my skin go cakey.

Essence Make Me Brow gel mascara
This is a great dupe for Benefit gimme brow. I've used both and i'd say these are pretty much the same, if not this one being slightly better! This is fabulous for when you're running out the door and you just want your brows to be combed through and a bit more defined.
Tarte Christmas Collection box
These blushes...that highlighter..those bronzers...everyday. Just every single day. They are so wonderfully pigmented and last so well on my face. It's so nice having it right there in a palette so I don't need to go opening other things. This has convinced me to go buy more Tarte products.
L'oreal Lash Paradise Mascara
This is a dupe for Better Than Sex, so save yo' pennies and just get this instead. This mascara is a total dream, it gives great volume and length to my lashes. Usually what I do is apply one coat - let it dry slightly - and apply another few coats to create lots of volume. Once I finish this i'm definitely going to repurchase it. 
But they're all such different shades...;) Gosh i'm a creature of habit. I swear these are ever so slightly different. 

Stila Stay-All-Day liquid lipstick in 'Perla'
I'm getting a little over liquid lipsticks, for awhile I was all about them but now I find them to be a nuisance as they can get so drying. I find the Stila ones stand out though, they are definitely not as drying as other ones. This shade Perla is a dusty pink/mauve colour. I like this formulation as it's really light on the lips and doesn't dry down into the little lines. Plus it lasts a pretty good time! This is my go-to on nights out as it lasts allll night. 

Bare Minerals Gen Nude Matte Lip Cream in 'Slay'
I have definitely mentioned this one before but it's in good reason. So it's a liquid lipstick except it's not one of those ones that dries down completely and is transfer proof. I don't mind that it doesn't dry down completely as it's soo comfortable to wear and so easy to re-apply. This is a repurchase! I never finish lip products as usually I move onto the next best thing but I just can't get over how great this is. 

Nivea Soft Rose Lip Balm
Cheap as chips (literally) and it's soooo good on my lips. (Yeah that rhymed haha). This is great for throwing in my handbag. It's just a no-fuss product which gives a sheer pink stain. Ultra hydrating too. I've convinced a few people to go out and get this now!
