Everyday Essentials

I don’t know about you but I am massively struggling to get up in the mornings at the moment due to the fact that it’s so dark it still feels like the middle of the night. My alarm gets snoozed a minimum of 3 times which means I am left with very little time to get ready for work! It’s a well known fact that I love makeup however on days like this I reach for my daily essentials that I know will see me through my working day.

Quick every day makeup…What you will need!

 

  1. Long wearing foundation

Every girl should own a long wearing foundation! Being oily skinned means that a long wearing matte foundation will always be my first choice when it comes to a long day in the office. For a quick application and flawless finish I use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.

Best High End: Estee Lauder Double Wear

Best Budget- Revlon Colour Stay for oily skin

 

  1. Matte Bronzer

Contouring doesn’t have to be technical or take hours; I use a matte bronzer to define my cheek bones and lightly dust over my forehead to give a bronzed finish.

Best High End: MAC Give Me Sun Mineralise Skin Finish

Best Budget: W7 Honolulu Bronzer

 

  1. A Shimmer Blush

A shimmer blush will brighten up any look especially when you’re keeping your makeup simple, a natural peachy tone would be my go to for every day makeup which will compliment your contour perfectly.

Best High End: MAC Style Sheer tone Blush

Best Budget: Sleek Rose Gold Blush

 

  1. Mascara

I like to keep my eyes natural for work meaning no eye shadow just a quick curl of my lashes and a good few layers of mascara.

Best High End: Lancôme Hypnose Drama

Best Budget: Maybelline The Falsies

 

  1. Lipstick

A berry coloured shade is my first choice for everyday, just enough colour to accentuate my natural lip colour.

Maybelline-Moisture Renew in Vintage Pink

 

  1. Setting powder

To finish off the look I use a powder, my first choice is MAC Studio Fix Powder which is actually a powder foundation but I find this suits my oily skin perfectly. I haven’t yet found a worthy budget alternative so any suggestions are welcome!
