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!
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.
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.
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
