My Daily Makeup Routine // Blogmas Day 4


My daily makeup routine hardly ever changes.
Don't get me wrong, I have my lazy version and my 'crap I have ten minutes to get ready' version, but ultimately it stays the same most days and I'm pretty loyal to my favourite products.

For the last few months I have been loving the Bare Minerals complexion rescue as a base. I don't like wearing foundations so the gel consistency is light enough of my skin it barely feels like I'm wearing anything. Thanks to the air conditioning at my work, most bases seem to dry out during the day, but this lasts surprisingly well. It covers most of my redness, brightens my complexion and hydrates my skin - the three things I look I look for in a tinted moisturiser. 

To brighten under my eyes i've been using the Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle eye wand. The eye cream is refreshing and helps to reduce any puffiness. The concealer is a peach toned so brightens and covers my under eye circles perfectly. The best thing about this concealer is that is barely creases on me. My eye crease a lot naturally so all concealers crease under my eyes without fail, so to find one that doesn't, has made me one happy lady. 

To highlight and contour I've been loving the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow palette. Orange toned bronzers don't really suit me when I'm pale so the cooler shade in this palette works a lot better during the winter. It blends seamlessly into the skin making it look flawless and natural. I've always loved the Nars Copacabana illuminator and its lasted me years. It highlights beautifully and it leaves your skin looking youthful, radiant and healthy. I prefer liquid highlighters because they add more of a glow rather than a shimmer. 

For the Eyes and brows I like to keep it fairly simple. I like to use the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary brows to deepen my eyebrows and keep them in place. It has tiny fibres that slightly thickens the brow hairs making the brows appear fuller. I line my lashes with a thin line of the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and coat my lashes with the Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat lashes which leaves my eyelashes long and fluttery all day long. 

To finish the look I line my lips with the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Liner in Pillow Talk and apply Charlotte Tilbury's Kim K.W. lipstick.
