My Everyday Makeup

My makeup routine changes like there's no tomorrow, and it'll probably change again shortly after I share this post. 

At the moment I'm liking dark brown/golden smokey eyes with a bright lip and as much foundation and  powder as I can get away with without looking like I slapped it on with a shovel.

Recently I purchased both the Bourjous 'Healthy Mix Serum' after I'd heard lots of people raving about it. I'd heard it was quite a light coverage. I thought I'd be brave and see what I thought, and also bought this concealer in the hope it would thicken it up a bit as I hate to have my freckles easily seen. I like the foundation, however I'm not brave enough to go with not a lot of coverage. This means that I mix it with my good old trust 'Wake Me Up' foundation from Rimmel, which leaves me with the perfect coverage and colour!

Over the top of my foundation I use the powder that I'm pretty sure everyone uses... Rimmel Stay Matte powder in 'Transparent'. I've used it ever since I can remember and it works a treat. It's such a good price for the quality of the product.. and there's not much more I have to say about it!
Then I use the Sleek 'Face Contour Kit' in Light. I use all three shades pretty much every day without fail. I'd been after this for a while and Sleek seemed to be out of stock with SO many of their products for such a long time. I'm glad I finally managed to get my hands on this, especially now that it's got me wearing pink blusher more rather than just a bronzer!

Then I go on to use the Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in hazel. I never was fond of penciled in eyebrows, but I like the small brush that comes on the lid when helps to make them look more natural.

I use my good old battered Naked palette. I absolutely love the colours, but the packaging really isn't great for the price you pay. I mean, maybe i shouldn't have kept it next to my sink, but it seemed that the slightest bit of water made it completely fall apart, but luckily the eyeshadow is still in tact. I use Half Baked, Smog and Darkhouse.

Introducing another few recent purchases, the L'oreal gel eyeliner and Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless mascara. The gel eyeliner I'm finally getting used to using. At first I found it so tricky to apply. The only thing I'd say I don't like about it is that it's no where near as dark as I thought it would be.. but that's something I can get used to! The mascara to me is just another mascara. Nothing amazing about it  and nothing I hate about it. It'll do until a new one comes along!

On another note, I've had a teeny play around with the style of my blog and I hope you like it!
What other things would you like to see from me? I've finished uni for the summer now, so I'm jobless with a lot of time to kill!

Thanks for reading!
