Admit it: you’re as nosey as I am. Having a peek inside someone’s makeup bag, to some, might not seem that exciting but I bet, if you’re reading this, you too love to snoop around and see what fellow beauty bloggers stash away in their much-loved everyday makeup bag.
I’ll admit, my everyday look isn’t that exciting and is made up entirely of high street products. I work 9-5 in an office so my Monday to Friday face is simple, low maintenance and easy to top up if I have a last minute meeting or drinks after work.
The one base product that I swear by is Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Light foundation. It really is the holy grail. Coupled with the new Collection Illuminating Touch concealer, it’s the perfect, low maintenance and long-lasting base for an everyday look.
highlight and blush
I can’t imagine a life without highlight. Dramatic? Who cares. I love it. If I’m feeling knackered, under the weather or just plain fed up with the fact that it’s Monday morning, my favourite MUA Highlight Shimmer is my saviour. My all time favourite blush is Max Factor’s Creme Puff Blush in Nude Mauve partnered with Makeup Revolution’s Vivid Baked Bronzer. Just gorgeous, especially now the weather’s getting that bit warmer.
EYES, BROWS and lips
Nothing comes close to my beloved Maybelline Nudes palette for my eyes and brows – it’s gloriously pigmented shadows are perfect for a simple everyday eye and there are two shades in the palette that work perfectly for quick and easy brows. As for mascara, nothing beats Maybelline’s Lash Sensational; I have the extra black version that makes my eyes pop even if I am a tad sleep deprived.
The last step in my everyday makeup look is lips. I’m a bit of a lipstick-phobe; I’ve never even tried a bright red lip and my collection of lippies is tiny compared to my collection of blushes and mascaras. MAC’s Peach Blossom lipstick is my ultimate everyday companion: it’s creamy, it’s long lasting and it’s the perfect nude shade. True love.
