Current Everyday Makeup

[ad contains gifted products] This is it everyone, plans are in motion, we're going to the pubs outdoors, bottomless brunch is happening and Caroline is actually washing her hair and putting on makeup, it's a miracle!

As much as I haven't been actively buying or trying new makeup recently, my everyday makeup has done a bit of a changed up since my last post here so I thought I'd do a quick update.

For my base I've been obsessed with my Becca Backlight Primer. I'm gutted Becca is discontinued but you can still get this primer online and in some deals, so I highly recommend it. It gives my face a nice glowy base. I've been using my L'Oreal Infallible Foundation 24 Hour Fresh Wear for a while and I do really like it. It gives enough coverage and when using a beauty blender and a nice glowy primer, it leaves a nice finish to last your day.

For powder I've been using my favourite Bareminerals Mineral Veil Powder which I always use to set my makeup. It's finely milled and stops any makeup setting into fine lines and does a good job with my under-eyes too.

For blusher, it's always Milani Rose Powder Blush 'Romantic Rose' . It's been ages since I've gotten myself any Milani products and I need to do a good haul! For highlighter, I've still been obsessed with this Ofra Feelin' Myself Palette* which I use a combination of all three very pretty and pigmented shades across my cheekbones.

I have two of the Bareminerals Gen Nudepalettes and they are both gorgeous. The 'Neutral' palette has become a firm favourite recently, I love the 'sandstone' shade for my crease and the 'believer' and 'tribe' for all over my lids. I use the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerize in 'Jean' over the lid to use as a base for those sparklier shade. I've still not found an eyeliner I love more than the Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner which doesn't smudge or run and the Maybelline Lash Sensational still remains a favourite of mine. At a bargain of £9.99 you can't go wrong with it, full and long lashes which hold a fabulous curl. 

For brows. I've mentioned it before but I'm now obsessed and have found a new favourite brow gel which is the BareMinerals Strength & Length Serum-Infused Brow Gel 'Clear'*. It keeps my brows holding firm but not crusty and gives them a beautiful feathered look.

For lips I'm either wearing Charlotte Tilbury's Pillow Talk, Bitch Perfect or a brand new favourite bareMinerals Mineralist Hydra Smoothing Lipstick 'Memory'I'm a bit over the full matte lipsticks and in the Spring I prefer a much glossier and fuller lip. 

What new or old products have you been using in your current everyday makeup?

  2. I've really been into the L'oreal foundation the past couple of weeks. It's the foundation I reached quite a lot and I forgot how beautiful the finish is on my skin and it does last the whole day! Yes to the Lash Sensational mascara. It's my most repurchased mascara xx
