The Everyday Face

After a morning workout applying my makeup is probably my favourite part of the day. It just makes me feel more confident and is something I love to do. My routine usually changes on a daily basis because I just love to change things up but at the moment I have been reaching for the same few things so I thought it would be a good idea to share with you guys Curls’ everyday face as S will be showing you hers next week so make sure you stick around for that one!20150623_205458

First things first. Primer. There are lot to choose from, some silicone based and others with a more moisturising formulation. At the moment I love the Benefit ‘that gal’ primer it is a nice hybrid of the two and just helps brighten my complexion. I then go for two foundations that I mix together and this has nothing to do with the finish I just find the Rimmel one too light so mixing it in with the Maybelline dream wonder helps match my complexion. The buffing brush by real techniques is the best for a seamless finish to apply the base.20150623_205800

Next is the cheeks, for my cheeks you may think I use a lot and would not have a lot of time in the morning to put this on but as I don’t like to go for eye shadow on a daily basis I find I always have time. I start with the Maybelline BB Bronze which I love! I blend it in with my sculpting brush where I would usually bronze my face and it just gives a lovely sun kissed glow. Also, to emphasise the bronze look I thenuse the Rimmel highlighter in soho glow and buff it onto the tops of my cheeks using the real techniques setting brush. The blush I have been going for recently is the gorgeous max factor one in Lavish Mauve its such a lovely shimmery pink colour that I just love to use. To set this I like to go over my cream bronzer with a powder one which is the Marks and Spencer Limited Collection face powder in the shade 04. Now my next step is probably one a lot of you wouldn’t agree with  but I just find that it has been working so well for me that I’ve just stuck to it. I go in with my under eye concealer which is the Garnier pure active one that is great for illuminating and brightening but to give an extra brightness I apply the Maybelline Lumi Touch concealer over and put this around my nose. To blend it in I love to use the real techniques pointed foundation brush as the size makes it great for blending and it creates a natural gradient towards the blush, making it look more natural. Lastly to set under the eyes I use every bloggers favourite, the Rimmel Stay Matte in 001 but for the rest of my face a light dusting of the same powder in the shade peach glow gets the job done! I tend not to bother with a dark lip colour as throughout most days I am too busy to re apply and check how I look so  quick wash of the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 03 is a gorgeous low maintenance colour.20150623_210029

So this is Curls’ current everyday face did you see anything similar to yours, what do you guys use on a daily basis? Any staples I need to try out? I would love to know.

Love Curls x

    • Its a really nice one! It’s very moisturizing but also provides a nice builadable finish and does not feel cakey on the skin, I do have to say I prefer the normal lasting finish with the red lid because of the coverage x
