Beauty, Get the look

My Current Everyday Makeup Routine

Corinne - August 30, 2016

I have been getting back into applying makeup on a regular basis, and I thought I would share my current go-to makeup routine. I have included lots of products that I have already reviewed in the past. The basis of the makeup look is healthy looking skin with a bigger focus on the eye-makeup. So let’s get right to it!
The Base
I start with blending in the original photo finish Smashbox primer (see review) with my faux beauty blender makeup sponge, and then filling in a triangular shape with Collection lasting perfection concealer in 01 under my eyes. I then proceed with covering any spots with said concealer and applying my foundation, typically Bourjois healthy mix Light Vanilla (see review). I make sure my foundation is blended across my whole face. I finish the base by highlighting and contouring my skin using Benefit Hoola (see review) and KIKO’s radiant touch highlighter stick.

For filling in my brows on a lazy day I use the old classic Benefit brow zings.

The Eyes
My favourite palette just now is  Urban Decay’s limited edition Pulp Fiction palette (see review). I love it for some go-to neutral matte brown tones, I follow Mrs Mia Wallace’s eye makeup look i.e shade Righteous for the base, Tyranny across the lids, smudge Vengence along the crease and under the lids, Furious to line my lashes and Anger to highlight my brow bone. To finish I create my trusty cat flick with Soap & Glory Supercat pen liner and  YSL baby doll mascara to get those fluttery lashes that I love.

The Lips
To complete the look I reach for MAC’S velvet teddy (see review) and either apply straight from the bullet or lightly dap on some colour using a brush.

And voila – this is my current everyday makeup routine!

  • This year we submit our dissertations electronically. I handed in my first submission of my dissertation on Friday, I then proceeded to resubmit over the weekend because I’m a perfectionist. Today it is officially complete, no more changes! The beast is done and I patiently await the fate of my degree.
  • I swear this will be me by the time I hand in my dissertation in March, I must be a crazy person because I want to do further study as well...
