My everyday make-up consists of;
- Maybelline the Colossal Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara
- Superdrug Eyelash Curlers
- Bourjois Duex Eyeliner Pencil in 01 Noir Expert
- Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Air-Whipped Foundation in 010 Ivory
- Maybelline New York Expertwear Blush in 62 Rosewood
- e.l.f. Eyebrow Kit in Medium
- Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 003 Peach Glow
- Benefit Benetint Rose Tinted Lip and Cheek Stain
I always try to keep my make-up natural, but I adore big voluminousness lashes, which is fingers crossed what I achieve with Maybelline the Colossal Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara. I don't know if anyone else always finds one set of eyelashes always turn out better than the other? Which is why it's handy to have a side fringe, because luckily its my weird-lash eye that's covered by my hair. I use my eyelash curlers everyday, but unlike most other people I always use them after I've applied my mascara. I don't know why, I just think it makes them last longer and gives a better overall finish. I actually just use Superdrug eyelash curlers at the moment, I think they were £1.50 and they work just as well as more expensive ones I've had in the past. I don't always wear eyeliner, but when I do I always either apply it above or below my top lash-line. Unfortunately, my eye's tend to water a lot so I always end up with black all over my face (not a good look unless you're a panda!).
I always put moisturiser on before applying my foundation as I have a tendency to get dry skin, especially during these cold winter months. I'm currently using Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Air-Whipped Foundation in 010 Ivory, but I'm on the hunt for the perfect foundation as I find this wears off pretty quickly. I took a visit to the MAC Store in Cambridge last weekend but their lightest shade of foundation was still too dark for me! I then apply Maybelline New York Expertwear Blush in 62 Rosewood to the apples of my cheeks just to give myself a flush of colour so I don't look too dead, and use some Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 003 Peach Glow which kinda just makes me look a bit chalky and dead again.
3. And the lips
I barely ever wear anything on my lips apart from a bit of lipbalm, but today I injected some colour into my make-up routine and decided to wear Benefit Benetint Rose Tinted Lip and Cheek Stain. I'll be honest, I got this free in a magazine a few weeks ago and it's probably the most expensive item of make-up I own even if it was a free gift. I think it's meant more to wear on your cheeks as it frankly tastes pretty disgusting, but I like the rosy shade it gives. It makes me look more alive after the application of my powder.
