Everday Makeup #1

- As a self confessed make up junkie, never complete without a full face of my favourite products it has been a strange time latley whereby I have been wearing barely any makeup at all.
I have certainly been going for the "less is more" approach.
Whilst some of the products photographed above are old timers within my routine, I feel that in recent months I have really found the perfect products that work with me as opposed to against me.

I have been using the Murad skin perfecting primer as a base as it is light on the skin and evens out the redness of my skin nicely. I then use my all time favourite foundation albeit one that I have only recently discovered the Collection 2000, Lasting perfection foundation  and I absolutley adore it, it really is the perfect foundation for my skin type.
Eyebrows are a big part of my routine as my natural eyebrows are quite sparce and thin. I powder them in using the W7, Brow bar quad using the dark brown shade, I pencil in the tails of my brows using the Rimmel eyebrow pencil in 'Dark brown'
I like to add a dash of Bourjois 'Delice De Poudre' bronzer to contour my cheeks with a hint of Bobbi Brown's 'Rose gold eyeshadow acting as a blush/highlight.
I prime my eyelids with Urban Decay 'Primer Potion' and apply a full lid covering of 'Sin' with a crease contour using 'Buck' if I am feeling adventurous I will add a touch of 'Half Baked' to my inner corner all from the Naked Palette #1
I use the MUA 'Liquid liner' on my upper lash line and a small smudge of MAC 'Smoulder' eye kohl
to the end of my lower lash line.I then curl my eyelashes and use Revlon 'Beyond Natural' mascara to legnthen my lashes before using  Bourjois 'Double Up' mascara for extra volume.
Finally I add a touch of ligloss that I believe came as freebie in Cosmopolitan magazine
it is the Missguided 'LipSplash' in 'Love' for a touch of pink sparkle.

My makeup routine barely takes anytime at all..which is especially good when I have a hideous 9 o'clock start, it looks natural and clean, a look I have been loving in recent months.

Love, Holl
