Sitting down at my dressing table each morning always leads to me grabbing the same make-up items. Its not because they are particularly my favourite pieces from my collection, I purely find it easier to grab the same items.

The first product I go to is the L’Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Primer which is £9.99 to buy so a steal really for a primer which gives your skin a lovely, healthy looking glow. I have been using this for a few weeks now when I feel like my skin needs that extra glow and I have been loving it! The foundation I have been using lately is the Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation which retails at £10.99. I have been loving this foundation recently, although I don’t really suffer from bad pigmentation I found that it really evened out my skin tone. Next I conceal my under eyes using a combination of Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer which is around £3.99 and the Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer Light which retails at £7.99. I place the Collection concealer in a V under my eyes and use the other to fill in the gap. I also using the Collection Lasting Perfection as a concealer for any blemishes I may have. To set all my base make-up I use the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder retailing at £3.99,i brush this round my face just to set it all in place.

Then its onto my eyes, I prime with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion which costs £11.99 to buy, I am just using the tester size. I then use the Urban Decay Naked Palette, retailing at £37.00 which you may be thinking is a lot for an eye shadow pallet but it is one of the best I have used. The colours are very natural and great to use on an everyday basis. To line my eyes I have been loving the Magic Liner in Engraved from Topshop which costs £6.50 and is worth every penny! The liner applies so smoothly and stay on all day. From my brows I have been using the brow zings from Benefit, I use the powder first to shape my brows then apply the wax to keep them in place throughout the day, this retails at £24.50. To define my brow bone I use the high brow also from Benefit which costs £15.50.

The final steps are to define and put a little bit colour into my face. I start with the Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder Medium/Dark which costs £6.99. I use this as a contour colour and blend it into my cheek bones, around the top and bottom of me face. I then add a blush, I have been loving the CORALista from Benefit which is a box powder retailing at £23.50. I love the fresh colour this gives to my cheeks. To highlight I use the Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polish which is £9.00. This is a lovely cream highlighter which sparkles when the light hits it. To finish off the look I have been grabbing my L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Privée in the colour Julianne’s Nude.

I have been loving this look for a nice natural finish and have been grabbing this items from my make-up collection for a few weeks now. You can also find a video of my Everyday Make-Up look on my youtube channel:

    I really enjoyed this post – I love seeing what makeup other people use on a day to day basis! I’m a big fan of the Rimmel stay matte powder. Such a simple product and so good at its job! The primer sounds interesting. I’ve never used a primer before so I might just give this one a go. x

      I totally agree, so cheap too!
      I didn’t use to use one but then i started using primer and wouldn’t not use it now!
