Everyday Makeup Essentials
It's been a while since I sat down and shared with you the products I use everyday when I do my makeup. If you follow my Instagram I am always sharing the products I used that day so I thought I would breakdown some of my most used products on here that I use almost on a day to day basis.
We'll start from the first product and work our way up. For a base I love using the L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Primer £7.99. This sets really quickly and stops my makeup from sliding about during the day. Once this has set I apply my foundation. For foundation I am still staying with my Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation £29 . I love using this foundation because the coverage is amazing, it mattifies quickly and lasts all day for me. Moving onto concealer I am still loving the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer £19. This is a lightweight creamy concealer that helps to conceal my undereyes and any blemishes.
After I have blended out my concealer and foundation with a beauty blender I take a little bit of banana powder and lightly brush this under my eyes. This helps to brighten up the eye area a little bit, then moving onto a translucent powder for the rest of my face. On a day to day basis I don't tend to bake, but if I am going on a night out or need my makeup to be pristine all day then I will bake under my eyes and at the contours of my face. Once this is done I move onto contouring.
I am not a massive fan of the visible contour so I take the Bourjour Mat Illusion Bronzing Powder £7.99 using an angled contour and blush brush and sweep this around the side of my face where my cheekbones are. It gives the illusion of a contour but it avoids that harsh line a lot of people have. I take this bronzer around the rest of my face, focusing on my forehead. Then it's the exciting time, highlighting.
I am loving using the Makeup Revolution Vivid Brights Highlighter in Golden Lights £3. Using the same brush I used for contour I brush this across my cheek bone and also a little bit on the nose. It helps to add a little glow to my nose which if you do right can work really well.
After highlighting I apply my eyeshadow base, because it is a creme base I like to give it enough time to dry down before I move onto my eyes. For an eye base I am using the Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo Matte Eyeshadow in Creme de Rose £4.99. This is a great base colour for me, I apply a little of this with my finger over the lid and move onto my brows whilst it sets. For brows I use the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Brunette. I tend to focus towards the sides of my brows creating definition and then moving towards the front of my brow, creating little hairs and blending this all out using a spoole. Then to set my brows I use the Maybelline Clear Brow Gel to stop them from moving throughout the day.
Moving back onto my eyes, I have loved using the Zoeva Nude Spectrum Palette £28.50. For everyday I tend to use the darker tan shade in the palette in the crease, blending this out using a fluffy brush from Makeup Revolution. And then using one of the shimmer shades on the first row in the inner corner of my eye to brighten the eye up. Taking a smaller eyeshadow brush I blend a little bit of the tan shade onto my waterline, letting it just slightly go onto my lower lash line. Making sure it is fully blended out. I love using warm shades during the day for a natural everyday look. I have recently been doing a few makeup looks without eyeliner but on the days when I do use eyeliner I use the Soap and Glory Supercat Liner £6. This is a great thin black eyeliner that goes on so easy, it makes it so easy to go from a delicate to dramatic wing.
Finishing off my makeup I apply the Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Black Mascara £7.99 on my top and bottom lashes and finish my full face using the Jeffree Star Liquid lipstick in Posh Spice £16. I love using this colour because it's a good mauve nude shade that works so well with my skin.
And that's it for my day to day products. I do like to switch it up sometimes so comment down below any product recommendations you have for me and I might be trying them out next.
Until next time, Chloe!
