My Everyday Make-Up


Today, I have my everyday make-up for you! I haven’t posted any make-up looks yet but I really enjoy doing it so I’d love for it to feature more on my blog.

This is the make-up look I do pretty much every day. I sometimes like to change the eye and lip colours but at the moment, I’m loving pink!


The eye look is quite subtle. This is what I prefer for everyday but I do like to go a bit bolder for a night out! I really like a more natural lip colour during the day, but I love a bright red as well!


To start with, I use the Rimmel Fix and Perfect Primer. I’ve used this nearly everyday for about a year and a half now! I leave this to dry and then use my Real Techniques blending sponge to apply my foundation. I use the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation but recently, I’ve also been trying Mac Studio Fix which might make it into my everyday make-up. I then go in with my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer.

After this, I use the translucent NYX HD Finishing Powder under my eyes to brighten. I really recommend using this as it works so well – I just use a clean blending sponge to apply it.

I then lightly brush the Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot powder all over my face and go onto my eyebrows.


I’ve been using the Maybelline Brow Satin mixed with ‘Undone’ from Naked 2 Basics to do my eyebrows. I then set them with the Benefit Ready, Set Brow which I really recommend – it’s brilliant! After this, I use the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer, Rimmel blusher in Pink Rose and Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade.

I prime my eyes with the Collection Primed & Ready and I almost always use the Naked Palette. (I recently bought some new eyeshadows over my birthday – post to come! – so I’ll start using these, too)


I then use Sin all over the lid, Toasted in the crease and under my eye, and Virgin in the inner corner and on the brow bone. This is one of my favourite combinations for everyday because it’s so subtle but really pretty.

I use the Maybelline Lash Sensational (please try this if you haven’t already – it’s incredible!) and set my face with the Rimmel #Insta Fix & Go (Review here.) I like to apply my lipstick after this as I don’t really like the feeling of the setting spray on top of my lipstick!

I love to use Mac’s Brave. It’s perfect for everyday as it’s such a pretty pink. It could also be applied lightly for a ‘your lips but better’ look.


So there is my everyday make-up look! I’d love to do more posts like these so let me know if there’s anything specific you’d like to see!
