What I Wore On My Face Today



Hello again! I thought that I'd do a quick little post about my makeup and what I usually wear on my face.


So first of all, I prime my face with Mac's 'Prep and Prime Skin Base Visage' which comes out looking quite sparkly, but it does not look glittery at all when it goes on your face. This really helps my skin as I naturally have quite oily skin and so this helps keep my complexion a little more balanced. 



Then, I dab out a little bit of my Clinique 'anti-blemish solutions' liquid foundation in the colour '07 fresh alabaster'' onto the back of my hand, then dab it onto the centre parts of my face (cheeks, nose, chin, t-zone). I love this foundation so much, I've used it since I was about thirteen years old, I'm now eighteen. It's an incredible foundation which is good for a natural look, as well as being a fantastic buildable foundation if there are days where you need a little bit more coverage. I apply this with my 'So Ecco' foundation brush.


After I've applied my foundation, I conceal and highlight with my Avon cosmetics 'Magix multi-benefit illuminator'. This is a new purchase for me, I say new, but I've been using it for the past month and a half and I really like it! I'm not really one for a lot of highlighter, but I feel like this gives me enough highlight without looking too over-done. Once I have applied it, I first blend it in with my finger and then with a little makeup sponge.


I then applied some eyeshadow. Today, I used the colour 'Chopper' from my Urban Decay 2 palette in my crease and then the colour 'Bootycall' on my lid and inner corners of my eye to brighten it up.


Then, I curled my eyelashes with my No.7 eyelash curler and used my favourite mascara, which is the Clinique 'high impact mascara'. I feel so loyal to this mascara because again, I've been using it for years. I've like to change it up sometimes, but I always come crawling back to this mascara!


After I've done this, I brush out my eyebrows with a spoolie and then fill in my brows with Mac's 'Night Whisper' eyeshadow. Yes I know it's an eyeshadow, but I love this colour for my brows! I use an unnamed angled brush to apply this shadow with. 



Now moving on to contour. I use the Bare Minerals colour facial total in the colour 'chic radiance' with the Real Techniques 'stippling brush' to lightly contour my cheekbones, jawline, nose and temples.


And finally, I applied my all time favourite lipstick (hence why it looks quite gross and I've also hit the bottom)! This is from the 'Kate Lasting Finish Lipstick' range for Rimmel in the colour 008.

I hope you're all having a wonderful Friday and I hope you have a lovely weekend! I plan to have a skincare routine blog coming soon! Thank you :)
