My Daily Make Up

I work in an office, the typical 9-5 (more like 5.30) day and make up for me is a must but it has to be quick application, neutral and long lasting!  Currently I am in love with looking dewy and glowing and fresh so the below products are what I am currently piling on to my face to achieve that exact look...

I am not a primer fan so firstly I slap on my trusty Steam Cream which is absolutely my most favourite moisturiser of late. Unless I have a sudden breakout and need to use a blemish specific cream this moisturiser graces my face every single day.  I tend to use a small amount in the mornings so my make-up just sits nicely on top, whereas in the evenings I cannot get enough of this on my face and slather on half a pot!!

Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser

For the last couple of weeks I have been using Just Skin by Chantecaille tinted moisturiser in Glow.  I haven't needed much coverage on my skin and it has also been super warm in the UK so heavy foundation is just not practical or necessary *I will be writing my review of Chantecaille TM so very soon!* On those days when I do need a bit more coverage I use my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation in Tawny which I have reviewed here.  I cannot get enough of this foundation, you really cannot go wrong with its coverage and lasting abilities.  I then use a touch of Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Cool Sand where needed.. generally under eye, round my nose and any blemish that decides to rear its ugly head.  This concealer is the bomb and it would take a strong contender to convince me to change it!  Depending if I need the coverage, I use the tiniest dusting of Bella Pierre's Mineral Foundation powder in Latte which also sets my makeup really well

At the moment I am loving a bit of blusher.  Sometimes I crave to be as bronzed as possible but at the moment a nice subtle blush is my cup of tea!  I tend to rotate my blushers depending on my mood its usually between Benefit's Coralista and Nars Super Orgasm.  But my fave right now has to be NYC Chroma Face Glow as it really does glow which highlights my apples just lovely.  I have also been using a little dab of Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl just above my blusher on my apples and slightly along my cheekbone to add more dewniness and glow if I need it

I fill in my eyebrows where they are a little sparse with No7 brow pencil and then line my upper eye with Lancome Le Crayon Khol Noir.   Now this is a pretty lame eyeliner really.. it smudges but not in a good way, and i find it comes off almost completely by lunch!  I am using it at the moment until I find an amazing pencil to replace it!!  Thickening my lashes at the moment is Bella Pierre's Lash Building mascara.  This was a product I received in a beauty box and being a fan of Bella Pierre products I immediately made room for it in my makeup bag. It is a fantastic mascara for everyday use and is just the right shade of black! One thing I don't do in my daily routine is curl my eyelashes.  Reason being is my lashes are actually pretty darn long and being blind as a bat I wear my specs everyday at work, so when curled my lashes stick to the lens and drive me absolutely mental!!!

Anatomicals Never Lose Your Cherry Fruity Balm
I don't tend to wear lipsticks as I have 2 freckles on my lips that can look so odd when I wear a lip colour, kind of like I am trying to cover them up or like I have pen on my lip!  So I stick to balms, my fave at the moment being Anatomicals Never Lose Your Cherry, its super hydrating and with its rosy tint looks lush too

So there is my every day makeup routine.. Phew looking at it it looks like a look of products for one little face!!

I would love to hear from more dewy skin lovers about the products you are loving.. Oh and recommendations for an amazing eyeliner pencil??!

  4. Lovely products! The Chantecaille tinted moisturiser sounds like a really nice product, I've been curious to try that brand but it's just so pricey where I live. The Ecotools blush brush is so soft :) Your nails are gorgeous, I absolutely love the leopard print and the pink!

    1. Yes it is crazy expensive but its actually LUSH!! I reckon you can get a lot of cheaper tinted moisturisers that are just as good though.. its just trial and error! Thank you for the comment I also love your blog :):)
