Everyday Makeup


I cleanse my skin twice a day and these are the products I use. I usually always use Liz Earle's hot cloth cleanser, but I ran out the other day, so I'm having to use face wipes meanwhile!  I use simple's moisturizer for the day time as it's lighter and the Liz Earle moisturiser for night time as it's super moisturising and really thick!

Maxfactor's weightless foundation is one of my favourite foundations. They have a range of shades which is awesome for pale girls like myself. There only ever seems to be orange foundations out there! Who agrees?
I love this pressed powder too. I have no idea of the brand but I have a few nail varnishes by them too, and I love them! You can purchase their products at Beauty Base in Westfield. They're dead cheap too!

I chop and change with blushers. My two most used ones at the moment are MUA's 'English Rose' from the professional line and ELF's 'Candid Coral'. I love the MUA one if I want a blusher and highlighter in one. I use the lilac shimmery shades for the tops of my cheekbones, but very lightly and just swish the brush all over the pink shades for a natural looking blush!

Since getting my Naked palette, I have used it non-stop! It's definitely one of them things that every girl needs. Do you own it?  I've been loving the HD brows kit since I received it in my Glossy Box (unsubscribed now though) a few months ago - the shades are super pigmented and double up as eyeshadows which is great for on the go!

ELF's mineral infused mascara was actually sent to me and I never used to like it. It has a really 'wet' formula which was a pain when you looked up and it smudged everywhere. However, it seems to have dried up over the past few months that it's just been sitting in my makeup collection. It really defines the lashes and separates them, but I couldn't bare to part with my faithfuls; no7's nutrient enriched mascara and my favourite, L'Oreal's 4D architect.

I have a HUGE lipstick collection. Would you like to see a separate post on them?  I wear different lipsticks everyday but these are my most worn.  From left to right; ELF's mineral 'nicely nude', Kate Moss' Rimmel range #4, Sleek's heartbreaker' and ELF's mineral 'cheeful cherry'.  I think my favourites of them all is cheerful cherry as it's a deep wine colour and lasts all day and I adore heartbreaker as it's a matt lipstick and that's my favourite finish!

I have a huge makeup brush collection (bane of my life when it comes to cleaning them all!) but these are my favourites. I don't use any MAC brushes, nor have I ever used them. I'm more of a ELF Studio & Sigma brush girl - cheaper & do the same job!

I have a few of ELF's powder brushes and use them for my foundation. They're really soft and similar to the Sigma F60 brush (same shape & use), just a lot cheaper; £3.50.  The powder brushes really blend the foundation into my skin and equally; nothing is worse than seeing streaky brush marks! 
I have used the Sigma stipple powder/blush brush for my blush for ages. It's great and picks up minimal product so you don't have to worry if it's a pigmented blush.

I use two blending brushes by Sigma for my eyeshadows which is usually always neutral shades. For my eyebrows I just use a brow comb to shape them to my desire ready to be filled in. I actually use a smudge brush from the studio line by ELF to line my water lines and then to line my lids if I decide to. It's not the purpose of the brush, but if something does something just as good, why not use it?


  1. I have the same issues when it comes to foundations! With most brands even the lightest shade goes orange on my skin! So annoying!!

    Lovely post x

  2. I have the same problem but with olivey skin, everything is either too pale or to orangey :(

  3. Love your lipsticks, I'm usually not confident enough to wear it and am currently searching for my perfect everyday shade! Are there any you would recommend?
    I love the ELF powder brush, I use it for blush :) x
