My daily make-up routine

May 13, 2014

Hi there! So, today I wanted to write a bit about my daily make-up routine since I actually never talk about it (well I don't really talk, I write haha). I'm not a make-up artist, I just like to try different things out and I just do my thing when it comes to make-up. I just use it to cover any blemishes and my I-just-got-out-of-bed face. Anyway, let's get into it!

I start of by rinsing my face when I get out of bed and I brush my hair. Done that, I like to put my hair up in a knot to keep it safely away from my face.

Cover stick Since I'm not a big fan of applying multiple layers of foundation to my face, I like to cover any blemishes on my face with the Essence cover stick. I got it a few months ago but I never really used it, I started using the cover stick again a few weeks ago and it's really easy to apply.

Foundation The foundation I'm currently using is the Maybelline Fit me foundation. It's a shade too dark for me, I think but I haven't found a better one in the right shade yet. (if you have any recommendations, please leave them in your comment! :)) I apply one layer of the foundation, using my H&M beauty blender. I think it's a good dupe for the real, expensive beauty blender.

Concealer The concealer/highlighter I like to use is the Catrice light-reflecting concealer. I apply it  under my eyes and on any blemishes that are still visible by using my beauty blender.

The next step is applying eyeshadow, I usually don't wear eyeshadow every day because I haven't got much time in the morning, but when I wear it, I like to use my Sleek 'Garden of Eden' palette. I'm in love with the colours!

Eyeshadow primer To prevent the eyeshadow from fading, I use the Catrice primer. It makes your eyeshadow waterproof and it lasts all day.

Eyeshadow I usually start off by applying the colour 'Eve's kiss' onto my eyelids, then I apply 'Paradise on earth' on my crease. I use the colour 'Python' as an eye-liner because I think it's pretty and easy to apply. (I'll add some swatches at the end of this post)

To add some colour to my face, I'm currently using the pink blusher from Technic, I got the blusher from my brother once for my birthday. :) The highlighter I like to use is from Essence and it's called 'Love Letters'. I think it' so pretty and there's a love poem written on the inside of it.

Last, but not least. I'm applying the translucent loose powder to set my make-up and prevent my skin from glowing at the end of the day. I'm absolutely loving this powder and it's really cheap. I definitely recommend it!

Here are some swatches from the blusher and the eyeshadow I'm using.

I hope you enjoyed this long post about my daily make-up routine and if you want to know which brushes I'm using, let me know! Have a lovely day! xxx Nausikaä
