My Everyday Face.

I am the biggest creature of habit. If I find a routine that works I will not change it for years. That being said, a few new things have been added, some little things I’ve picked up and a few things I’ve found whilst shopping my stash. So this is what I put on my face.


So as always I start with my Estée Lauder BB cream, which I apply with fingers. But, recently what I’ve been doing is after I’ve applied with fingers I go over with the big kabuki brush from Tropic. This helps make sure everything is blended and just takes that top layer off to make it all look more natural. Then after concealing I set with any drug store matte pressed powder. 


For concealing I always have a two step process. First, I use the Rimmel concealer to deal with under my eyes and on blemishes or redness, where it is stippled using the blue Eco Tools brush. Then after powder is applied if any problem areas are still poking through I use a little of the stick concealer, this one is from MUA in Superdrug, to cover them up.


Next is my cheeks, I’ve rediscovered my Body Shop Honey Bronzer and I apply that using the Real Techniques brush is a vague contour shape that just adds warmth to the skin. Then I use the Eco Tools brush with the MUA blush on the apples of my cheeks. I find this adds a nice fresh flush to the skin, making it look a tad more natural.


Last thing to do is, brush through my eyebrows with this brush that’s as old as time. I don’t do anything with my eyebrows day to day because it adds more time and I have quite a strong brow naturally. 

So, that’s it. Those are the products I use on my face everyday. What products do you swear by?

My Eyeshadow Palette Collection.

A great eye look will always perk up your life, we all know that. And a good eyeshadow palette makes life so much easier. But being a make up hoarder you can never just have one palette, that is never enough. As you grow so does your collection and this is mine.

Let’s start how we online shop…cheapest first.

This MUA palette was around £8 and it’s years old but I’m sure they do something similar. MUA is exclusive to superdrug and despite the low price point the quality is pretty darn good. This would be a great start for someone who is just getting into eyeshadow because it has a great range of neutrals.

With 3 mattes and the rest are sparkles you can make a great eye look with just this palette.

Yeah so the name is rubbed off mine but this is the L’Oreal La Palette Nude. We all that L’Oreal make great quality products and their eyeshadows have great pay off.

Although this is a nude palette it has some great transition colours for more colourful looks.

This might be my favourite palette. The Urban Decay Naked Basics palette is so perfect for travel and great for an understated neutral look.

It has everything you could possibly need if you were strapped for space when packing for a holiday.

My last eyeshadow palette is the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, don’t ask me why I don’t have any of the others. Really good quality, great colour pay off and not a bad price point for the amount of colours you get.

I love how they’re neutrals but a bit more than the usual browns. The purples and greys can really help make a multitude of looks. As much as I love my mattes, I always find myself using the metallics because they give such a pretty shimmer to the eyes.

So that’s my little collection, hopefully it’ll grow in the coming years. I’d love to know your favourite palettes and any recommendations for me.
