Beauty - updated everyday makeup

Hey lovelies,
recently I have switched up my everyday makeup routine, and by everyday I mean when I go to work or anywhere out in public, at home I'm all about the bare face!

Anyway I recently bought some new make up and some of the bits have quickly become firm favourites that I reach for nearly every morning,

All about the base !! I always start my base make up with the soap & glory one heck of a blot primer, this has been a favourite of mine for a while now, it gives my face a nice smooth surface on which to apply my foundation. One of my recent discoveries is the Revlon colorstay foundation for oily/combination skin, I know everyone raves about it but that's cause it's so good, and last ages without sliding off my face like some make up can.
My concealer of choice at the moment is Barry m flawless concealer I find this good for those pesky under eye bags.
For powder I have been using the Gosh prime n set I bought this ages ago but have only recently started using it, its a white loose powder that I find sets my make up perfectly without looking to matte. I can't find a link to it for some reason, but I got it from Superdrug.
For bronzer I've gone back to an old favourite Boujois bronzing powder , but for blush and highlighter I'm enjoying some new products the barry m cream blush in Rhubarb, I never normally use a cream blusher but love this one for Spring. and my new all time fav thing ever is the The balm Mary Lou manizer OMG I just love this highlighter, If you haven't tried it you must! 

The rest of my face!! anyone who follows me will know I love my The balm nude tude palette you can see my full review here, I use this basically every day the shades are just gorgeous and blend beautifully. Another new love is my soap & glory HD mascara I think this is gonna be my new holy grail mascara, and lastly lipstick my go to at the moment is the bloggers favourite Mac velvet teddy a perfect everyday shade.

As you can see I go for a quite subtle make up look on a daily basis as I'm not a lover of the heavily made up look.

Have you changed up your make up lately?

  4. Awesome post! I need to use a primer more often, keep forgetting to about it. The Revlon foundation is such a wonderful product, I have it in the normal/dry skin and love it, though at the moment I've been enjoying BB/CC creams more than foundations.


  5. Love the look of the eyeshadow palette.
