everyday makeup

My go to foundation at the mo is MAC Studio Sculpt, I can't say it's my favourite, the coverage is too heavy & thick for my liking but mixed with a blob of moisturiser makes it easier to work with. I'm on the look out for a new drugstore foundation though, leave me your recommendations please! Next I fill my eyebrows in using a MAC 266 Angled Brush & a combination of the darker shades in the HD Brow Palette, the latest addition to my makeup bag. I don't wear eyeshadow everyday but if I do I keep it pretty basic & apply MAC Satin Taupe Eyeshadow all over my lid & blend it out with a MAC 217 Blending Brush then take the excess under my bottom lashes. I will also use the Urban Decay Primer Potion if I'm going to be out all day & want to make sure my eyeshadow lasts & doesn't budge or drop all down my face! I've not been reaching for liquid eyeliner recently, instead I've been using a darker eyeshadow along my upper lash line which I really like & it's much less faff than trying to perfect cat flicks! I'm not fussy with mascara, the two I have at the moment are Maybelline The Falsies and Soap & Glory Thick & Fast, both which do the job well! I never used to be a fan of bronzer because I'm so ghostly pale but I actually really love using the Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder (chocolate bronzer!) lightly over my cheekbones & forehead, it helps me look a little bit more alive! I conceal using Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, one of the most raved about makeup products in the beauty blogosphere & I also use Dainty Doll Concealer to lighten up under my eyes. Finally I set my makeup with a dusting of Rimmel Stay Matte Powder & I'm done!

  6. I really want to try the UD brow kit. I adore the stay matte powder and always carry if in my bag. Great products - would love to see the finished look :-)
    Love Vicky

  7. I have never really been a fan of any foundation - they all feel too heavy - but I do like BB cream, although I don't wear it everyday. I do use Benefit's Dandelion blush everyday to give me a bit of colour. I've recently started using Max Factor Masterpiece mascara and I love it. x

  8. I think Thick & Fast has got to be one of my fave ever mascaras! I love UD eyeshadow primer too!! I would really love to invest in some RT brushes. xx
