My make-up on a daily basis


I love makeup probably a bit more than the average girl. I have a dressing table drawer full of it. And don't get me started on my hair tower, which also has some makeup..

Anyway, I thought I would share what I use religiously everyday for my natural makeup look.

Estee Lauder DayWear Cream

I wasn't really sure of this product at first. And now I wouldn't look back. I love how its so light, non greasy and has a beautiful smell. I will definitely be purchasing a bigger jar very soon.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foudation - Shade "Cool Bones"

Now probably like everyone else, I was a MAC addict. I couldn't see past it. But I always felt that MAC foundation made my skin look patchy and dry very quickly. My cousin told me about this, so I thought I would give it a try too. I love how you don't need a lot of it on your face. The only problem with it that it doesn't have a pump (boohoo), so I use cotton buds to put some on before blending it out with my Real Techniques stippling brush.

Benefit Boiing Industrial Strength Concealer - Shade "Light"

The first time I bought this product, it was on a whim in duty-free at Edinburgh Airport before my friend and I went to Amsterdam. I cannot recommend this product enough. This was a life saviour when I had bad acne (no longer have it yay!), but now I put some only under my eyes to make me look a bit more awake, which I then blend in with my Real Techniques stippling brush.

Estee Lauder Face Powder - Shade "Cool Bones"

Anyone out there religiously used Maybelline Matte Powder? Yeah, me too, until this came along. Again, like the other Estee Lauder products, its very light. I love how it matches my skin tone perfectly aswell. It has a secret compartment underneath with a blotting sponge so you can carry this little compact everywhere with you!

Estee Lauder Blusher - Shade "Plush Petal"

I always find blusher a very difficult thing for me to pick. Because I'm quite pale, a lot of blushers make me look like Aunt Sally. So when I popped along to House of Frasers, I fell in love with this blush straight away. I love how it starts off white and gradually goes into a soft pink. I used to have to go over my blusher with even more face powder to try and tone it down, but I no longer have to do this with this product. As you can probably tell, I haven't used the little brush in this, I can't part with my Real Techniques blusher brush just yet!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Eyebrow Pencil and Highlighter - Shade "Light Brown"

This is something else I could never get quite right. I've tried so many different eyebrow products I've lost count! I got this with some birthday money I got. It's not too harsh on your face and the highlighter matches my skin tone perfectly (that perfect, it's very difficult to see in the swatch above!)

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara - Shade "Black"

Now absolutely everyone on the internet raves about this product - and quite frankly, I have to agree with them. My eyelashes look much longer now and so far so good, no smudges!

So that's everything I wear on a daily basis. You're probably thinking where the lip products are or the eyeshadows - I'm not one for wearing eyeshades unless I'm going out somewhere which isn't work. And for lips? Because I work on a building site (yes, an actual building site!) there is literally no point wearing anything as it will get smudged. Again I only wear lip products if I'm going out. The only thing you may see me wearing is maybe some Nivea lip balm.
