My Current Makeup Routine (never has it been more simple!)

Heya everyone! πŸ˜€

I noticed that recently, I’ve had this continuous makeup routine that’s sooo uber simple, only takes 7 products, yet looks quite good, so I thought I’d share it with you. πŸ™‚

FACE:

1. NYX ‘Above and Beyond Full Coverage Concealer’Β (02 Clair)

So, I struggle with finding my foundation shade quite a lot. I mean, when you can’t find one in MAC, a store that has about 70 different foundation shades, but are supposed to mix in 2, you know you have a problem. Instead of foundation, I opt for concealer. The one I’m using isΒ honestly not that great… but it’s the only one which had my shade, so it’ll have to do.

How I use it: I apply it to my under-eye area, as well as on the cheeks. a) I have quite a bit of redness and b) it’s better to do it that way, it looks more natural. I’d also use it to conceal a few blemishes or imperfections, but then again, this is an everyday, natural look, so I’m not going for that doll-like finish.

I’ll then blend it in using my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.

2. Rimmel 25h Long Lasting Powder Foundation

Then, I’d use this powder all over my face, mainly to set the concealer in place and also to even out my skin tone. (I’d sometimes blend the concealer with a bit of this on the brush)

3. Essence Blush Up! (20 pinky flow)

This is the blush that I’m currently using almost everyday. I feel blusher really makes me look a bit more ‘alive’, since I am so pale, and this one is quite intense. The shade is really nice, too, it’s perfect for spring/summer.

EYES:

4. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara (Very Black)

Β I got this quite recently and have been using it ever since. It’s such a great everyday mascara! It’s not very dramatic, so instead of giving you the look of false lashes, it enhances your already beautiful natural lashes. Overall, I just really like the results.

5. Essence Get Big! Lashes Waterproof Mascara

This is an optional step, but I occasionally go over my normal mascara with waterproof mascara. The one I usually use is this one by Essence. Like I said, I’m not the biggest Essence fan and I got this one ages ago so instead of wasting it, I use it sometimes, usually during summer, so I don’t end up looking like a panda.

LIPS:

6. Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm

Another thing I got recently and that I absolutely love. I just can’t put any lip product on without applying this beforehand. Actually, before I even start my makeup routine, I’d apply this so my lips ‘absorb’ it by the time I wanted to put some colour on. πŸ™‚

7. Clinique Chubby Stick – 04 Mega Melon

I found that since getting it, I’ve used this probably every single day. It’s a tinted lip balm, basically, but it’s really pigmented and gives the ‘I put effort into my face’ look without the actual effort. Perfect for everyday use. πŸ™‚

And that’s basically it! I hope you enjoyed this post. πŸ™‚

Most of the products that I mentioned I got quite recently and featured them in a haul post (click here to check it out) and a first impressions post (click here) so I just thought to throw that out there, in case you’re curious. πŸ™‚

What is your everyday makeup routine like? Leave it in the comments below or if you’ve done a post about it, link it to me. πŸ™‚ I’d love to read it!

Bye!
