Everyday Makeup #4

I like doing these posts, it gives me a chance to talk about the different products I'm loving and using at the moment, although I tend to use the same products for a while I do often switch it up a little bit so I like to update you all on new products I'm trying out! Lately I have been using the Diorskin BB Cream as my base makeup which is unusual as I'm more of a foundation girl, I have a review of this coming soon so keep an eye out! This was my first BB cream and I have to say I have really been enjoying using it! Next as always is my Collection 2000 concealer, I'm looking into buying the Nars concealer as I've heard so many good things about it, so let me know if you have tried it! Over the top I use my YSL Touche Eclat to brighten my eye area, I notice the difference when I use this compared to when I don't, my eye area looks so much brighter and I look so much more awake. To powder I use my Mac Mineralize Skin Finish in Natural, I recently started using my Real Techniques Buffing Brush to apply this powder which has been working really well! Since switching to using my Expert Face Brush I feel like my Buffing Brush was getting a little neglected so I'm glad it has more of a use now! I have been using my Mac Soft and Gentle to highlight, this is probably my favourite highlighter, I absolutely love it! It lasts for ages, mine hardly has a dent in it and I've had it for about a year now! For blusher I've been using Nars Deep Throat which I think is absolutely perfect for summer as it has a slight shimmer in it, nothing glittery but it adds a nice glow to the cheeks! I completely forgot to include my Sleek Brow Kit when photographing this, but I have been using this everyday recently and I love it so much! I was having so many problems finding a good brow product but I found it in my drawer and decided to use it again! I have been using the Estee Lauder Eyeshadow Duo in Raisins religiously! It is perfect and I have a review of this coming up soon too! Rather than use a black gel or liquid liner, which is something I used to do daily, I've been using an eyeliner on my upper lash line, this one from L'oreal in the shade Iced Chestnut is my favourite! Then finally I add some of my 2000 Calorie Mascara from Max Factor and I'm done! I have definitely been opting for a more natural look lately, especially in terms of my foundation which is odd because usually I am a full coverage girl!

What are your daily "go to" products?



  1. I looooove the Dior BB Creme! The NARS concealer is lovely, I had a sample of it and now I'm looking to buy a full size.

  2. I really want to try the Dior BB, I've heard amazing things about it. I'm debating whether to take the splurge! I love the way you've photographed this :)
