Beauty - My current everyday makeup

Everyday makeup featuring Mac , Revlon , Soap & Glory, Makeup revolution and The Balm

Hey lovelies,
As the seasons slowly start to change I tend to change up my makeup routine, going for a slightly fresher look for day to day, like when I'm at work.

I always start my base with a primer and my current one I'm using is the One heck of a blot from soap & glory, I think this is a pretty good primer and does the job although I'm always on the look out for recommendations, so let me know if there is anything I should try. Next up foundation, and my holy grail from Revlon the Colorstay in oily/combination I love this stuff its easy to apply blends beautifully and covers what I need to cover. My current concealer is Maybelline Erasure eye this stuff is fab at hiding those pesky dark circles. For powder I use Gosh prime n set sorry I can't find a link for this but I got it in Superdrug last year.
On to Bronzer I use the bronzer shade from this makeup revolution set but again I can't find a link but I'm sure they probably do a similar palette. Now for blusher and highlight and I use one of my fav brands The balm,I love the Frat boy blush and the Mary Lou Manizer has to be my fav makeup item ever I bloody love it !! 
To set my make up so it lasts all day I use a product I recently discovered the Urban decay de - slick setting spray, you can catch my recent review of it - here

The rest;

For my eye makeup I tend to keep it fairly simple on the day to day basis just washing one colour of my lids at the moment I love my Mac shadows especially All that glitters , I then sometimes add a little liner depending if I can be bothered but when I do I use this Miss sporty one as I find its quite easy to use for someone like me who's rubbish at eyeliner lol. Mascara I use my holy grail the Soap & Glory Hd mascara this is hands down my most favourite mascara and I will continue to re purchase it cause I love it. Then brows I'm lucky in the fact my brows don't need to much doing to them they are naturally dark and thick so I just use Rimmel brow this way in dark brown to tidy them up and fill in any little gaps.
Lastly lips my current go to is Mac's Brave a pretty mauve shade perfect for Spring/Summer.

So there you have it my current everyday makeup.
Let me know anything you think I would like in the comments.


  1. Mac all that glitters is one of my faves too at the minute! Naked lunch I'm wearing a lot as well :) I really need to wear my brave more often. i still need to try Mary Lou, but I have becca moonstone and heard it very similar? The balm instain blushers are so underrated, they're quite pricey n comparison but genuinely last all day :) x

  2. I love the Revlon Colorstay foundation, it's one of my favourites! I would love to try the Soap & Glory primer and 'Brave' by MAC is such a pretty lip colour :)
