BEAUTY // Everyday Makeup Routine

 I'm one of those people who likes to sleep in and leave myself 20 minutes to get ready whenever I'm going somewhere, so it's a good thing I've done this routine plenty of times and can get it done in about 10 minutes if need be!
The majority of the brushes I use are from a brand called 'imei Professional' simply because I got them when I was doing my makeup course last year and I just haven't got any new ones yet. I do have a few Real Techniques ones too that I use in this post.
First of all, you've gotta have something to keep your hair out of your face, and for me this is my minnie mouse ears, without fail, every day. (Wait til I've been to Disneyland in April and get proper ones, I'll probably just wear them all day!) 
 As for prepping the skin, I'm not really a big fan of primers, so I just go for a moisturiser, especially as I have pretty dry skin, and a cooling eye roll-on. Both of these are from the brand Simple. Next I use Benefit's Erase Paste under my eyes and I blend that in with a Real Techniques domed shadow brush. I then apply dabs of Rimmel's Match Perfection foundation evenly around my face and blend that in with my stippling brush. I use a pressed powder from Avon with a big fluffy brush to set it all.  
 Now onto the eyes and eyebrows! My sister got me this Natio brow kit for Christmas which has been an absolute life saver. It comes with a wax, a mini spoolie brush, a mini double ended angled brush and a pair of mini tweezers! I just brush out my eyebrows, fill them in, brush them out again to soften and then apply some of the wax to keep them in place.

On my eyes I use my DIY eye primer with a loose shimmer shadow over the top just to add a little bit of sparkle! I use a black Designer Brands kohl eyeliner to tightline my eyes, which I really love doing as it makes my tiny eyes look so not tiny, haha. I then apply a sparkly white eyeliner (which was kindly given to me by the lovely Vienna, check her blog out!) to my bottom waterline and the inner corners of my eyes.

After curling my lashes I apply a coat of Maybelline's The Falsies followed by a coat of Rimmel's Scandal Eyes Flex mascara to my upper lashes, and then for some reason, the opposite way around on my bottom lashes.

 I don't do anything too exciting regarding blush, it's actually one of the things I'm scared to experiment with, haha. I slightly contour my cheekbones and temples with the top blush in Peach Daiquiri with an angled blush brush and then with my Real Techniques multi task brush I apply a very light dusting of the shade Mild Pink on my cheeks, both of these are by Wendy Hill.

My lip products usually depend on how I'm feeling or where I'm going that day, if I'm going for something more casual I'll just apply some of my Little Green Tin lip balm (which is definitely my holy grail of all lip balms), or if I want something a little more fancy, or simply just want a bit of colour on my lips, I'll put on my Colour Trend tinted lip balm by Avon. This one is in the shade 'Dewy Rose' which just adds a nice pink tint to your lips and also keeps them moisturised!
