My Everyday Makeup
After years of trying and testing products I have finally found the best ones for my skin type (oily-acne prone) as willing as I am to try new products I prefer to keep makeup minimal and re-purchase products I love rather than trying new brands. Most of the makeup products/ skincare products I use also is cruelty free.
The perfect makeup routine including a combination of products that work amazingly well for my skin tone and inspired greatly by Victoria’s Secret model Jasmine Tooke’s every day routine.
I never really used to wear makeup and I have never been a lover of the overly cake-y makeup look. That being said I couldn’t help but try this foundation once I realised Jasmine Tookes also wears it in my very same shade it is the Giorgio Armani Luminous silk foundation in Shade 10 which matches me perfectly all year round. The base which I wear underneath my makeup is a primer by La Roche Posay- Efeclar Matt I also sometimes like to use Benefit Porefessional a trusted long-time favourite and for special occasions I love is the Too Faced mattifying. Primed and Poreless . For concealer I normally use Tarte Tape Shape in 53N Deep. I set this using the Laura Mercier Deep setting powder usually or the Anastasia Beverly Hills setting powder.
Other great foundations which I love include Fenty Beauty Pro Filtr Foundation in the shade 420 or 430,depending on summer or winter.
A simple neutral eyelook is my Go-to and the colours in the Too Faced Born this Way palette are amazingly high pigmented and beautiful. I use this palette or the Tarte Toasted another warm toned neutral palette nearly all the time I wear makeup. For mascara a mascara primer is a must have and I have recently been using the Loreal Double Extension before going over this with a Too Faced or Dior Volume Curling mascara. ( A post on mascara favourties is coming soon, especially after I get the last beauty item on my list to buy soon- The Lancome Eyelash Primer)
My all-time favourite blush is format by MAC and this works really well to give a bronzed glow which is seen below on Jasmine Tookes. There are also a few other products that give a very sunkissed looks such as the Iman Cosmetics Afterglow bronzer.
In terms of neutral lip colours the best high end shade which I’m obsessed with recently in a Nars shade called Bound. It is absolutely beautiful and pigmented rosepink with a brown undertone. For lip liner I often use Prune or Cappuccino by NYX. Another great shade recommended or used frequently by an instagrammer Chelsea Olivia who I love is called Bow and Arrow by Kat Von D.
