What's In My Everyday Makeup Bag
When I go to work everyday, I can't be bothered wearing much makeup (especially when I'm up at 5.45am) so I just tend to keep it to a minimum. I decided to do a post on what's in my makeup bag for my natural day look which is usually dewy skin, an eyeliner flick and natural lips.
On a daily basis I switch between my Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation and Chanel Perfection Lumiere which both give my skin a natural looking finish. My favourite concealer at the moment is Rimmel Wake Me Up which is great at hiding those dark circles and because I loved it so much I've just picked up the foundation to try too. I use my NARS Laguna bronzer as a countour and apply it in the hollows of my cheeks, my jawline and my temples then add a cream blush and highlight to my cheeks for a dewy look. At the moment I've got Topshop Glow highlighter and Kevyn Aucoin Euphoria creamy glow blush in my makeup bag. I finish my base off with a dusting of MAC Blotting powder to stop my t-zone from getting oily (not a good look).
On a night out I love nothing more than a dark smoky eye but for everyday I usually just apply a slick of eyeliner and loads of mascara. My choice of eyeliner at the moment is the L'Oreal Perfect Slim Super Liner because it's so quick and easy to apply in the mornings and I'm using Maybelline The Falsies mascara which is my favourite drug store mascara. I also fill in my brows with my Kevyn Aucoin Precision Brow Pencil which is really natural for day time and has a handy little spooly attached to the end.
My two favourite natural lipsticks to wear daily are MAC Angel and Chanel Romance, I usually just apply whatever one I pick out first. There's also nothing worse than dry lips so I always keep a lip balm or two handy. I've been using Nivea Caramel Cream for a few months now and it smells amazing but I also carry around Eight Hour Cream in my handbag in case my lips are feeling extra dry.
So that's my every day makeup at the moment, it can vary from month to month depending on what products I've picked up but I usually always go for the same old look. Hope everyone's having a good weekend, I'm spending mine blogging, relaxing and reading my new Lauren Conrad books.
