My Everyday Makeup

I was thinking of blog posts I could do on my week off from work and it occurred to me I've never done a 'Everyday Makeup' post, so that's what I'm bringing to you today.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation & Concealer {£8.99 & £5.49}
These 2 products have been my holy grail foundation and concealer for the past 3/4 months. I have tried other concealers since but just nothing compares to this little wonderstick in a tube! I haven't even bothered trying a different foundation as I love this one way too much and get complimented on my makeup when I'm wearing it. I wear shade 103 True Ivory in the foundation and 020 True Ivory in the concealer. Both are available from Boots.

MUA Bronzed Perfection {£3.00}
This is only the second bronzer I have ever worn in my life. My first one was MAC's 'Refined Golden' and when I eventually reached pan and finished it I didn't really have the money to fork out for another one. So I took to twitter to see what you guys thought. A lot of you had raved about the MUA Bronzed Perfection so I thought at £3 there's not a lot to lose. And I am so glad I tried it because I find it near identical to 'Refined Golden' at a fraction of the price. Available from the MUA Website.

MAC Mineralize Blush Duo {£19.00}
Unfortunately these were LE with the Too Fabulous collection way back in March 2010 so are no longer available to purchase (unless you track them down on eBay, just beware of fakes!). These are the only two I picked up from the collection, from left to right is 'Rhapsody In Two' and 'Two Virtues'. I neglected these for a very long time and have just rediscovered them and put them into my everyday makeup. I use 'Rhapsody In Two' as a highlight on my cheekbones and 'Two Virtues' on the apples of my cheek to give myself a subtle glow. Other mineralized blushers are available from MAC.

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR By Eye Studio {£4.99}
I was late jumping on the bandwagon with these and this is so far the only one I own. As you may know I am a neutrals girl at heart and love my bronzes, golds and browns. The one I got is '35-On and on Bronze'. Perfect for me right! I know you can wear this on it's own as it's a gel-cream eyeshadow but I like to layer mine with the next product I'm going to show you. These are available in array of colours from Boots.

MUA Heaven & Earth Eyeshadow Palette {£4.00}
This is what I like to layer over the Maybelline Color Tattoo gel-cream eyeshadow. You can see by the photo which are my favourite shades. I tend to stick to the same colours although I do try to change it up, and will have to when my two favourite which have already hit pan completely run out which will be a sad day for me. This palette is definitely a must have for any neutral lovers like me. It is available from the MUA Website.

MAC Eyeshadow 'Charcoal Brown' {£12.00}
I've tried all the different forms of filling in your eyebrows. From Benefits 'Brow-zings' to eyebrow pencils to the MAC Penultimate eyebrow marker. But I have to say my favourite is just plain old eyeshadow. There are obviously a few little rules. Always make sure the eyeshadow your going to use is matte, nobody wants disco balls for eyebrows! And I personally find that when using an eyeshadow it's best to go a few shades lighter then your eyebrow colour. This way it doesn't darken your eyebrows too much and make them look drawn on, after all I like them to look somewhat natural! I use 'Charcoal Brown' from MAC and it is the perfect colour for me! It's available from MAC.

MAC Fluidline 'Blacktrack' {£14.00}
Gel liner has been a godsend for me. I used pencil for a while but it always seemed to fade and almost disappear so I tried liquid. Liquid wasn't as bad as pencil and i loved it for a while until I started to always notice it transferred onto my crease. Great I thought I'll just have to go on looking ill with no eyeliner. Then someone recommended fluidline to me and straight away I thought there's no way I could use it, especially having to use a brush. But like always I'm willing to give it a try, now say hello to my holy grail eyeliner! It's available in various colours from MAC.

L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes {£10.99}
Last but not least I finish my look off with mascara. I can't tell how many mascaras I have tried out in the past and i'm sure a lot of you are the same. I change my mascara up all the time (as you should after 3 months) so I find different outcomes with them all. I love 'Dior Extase' but I don't have the bank balance to be repurchasing that every 3 months so I love it when I find a drugstore mascara which I can't stop using. This happens to be mine, 'Volume Million Lashes' does everything I want it to and more! This is available at Boots.

So what do you guys think? Do you use any of the same products as me?

  1. oooh those mac blushers are so purdyyy x

  2. Lovely post! I haven't tried the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation but I've heard to many good things about it and it's such a good price too. I also really want to try that Mac gel eyeliner. I hardly ever wear eyeliner because it seems to transfer onto my crease too so I might have to give this one a go:) xx

  3. I really like seeing what other blogger's like to wear for their daily make-up!
    I've been wanting to try a L'oreal mascara for age's as everyone rate's them so much, may have to pick up the Million lashes to try out and the Rimmel wake me up range (can't believe I haven't tried them yet!)
