Hey everyone! If you're wondering, I haven't died, I've just been very busy!
So lately, I've been going through a bit of a beauty obsession; I've been watching countless makeup tutorials on Youtube (Tanya Burr, I am now your biggest fan) and looking into investing in certain products since my makeup collection doesn't go beyond my makeup bag and now I want to try my hand at beauty blogging, so I think I'll start with the basics and show the makeup I wear on a day-to-day basis!
Oh, I also forgot to mention that I have brown hair as well now hehe!
So this is basically how I have my makeup every day, it does vary from time to time but this is generally my go-to look.
Like I mentioned before, I've never been big on beauty products, I always get stuff as I need it and never looked to grow my collection. I've also never been one to be loyal to a particular makeup brand product over the years when it comes to beauty products, it's always depended on what my budget was and what was more convenient at the time of purchasing. However, since moving to Manchester, I've got pretty much every Department Store on my doorstep so I can have more of a shop around.
On to the makeup itself, I very much like to keep it simple and neutral apart from the eyes and eye brows. I like very defined eyebrows so I always go for the darkest colour that I can get away with. With the eyes, I opt for the neutral shadow, which is the number 3 colour on the Revlon Palette. I then go over it with a Kohl Pencil on my top lid and in the outside corner of my waterline and finish it off with a small flick with liquid eyeliner on the corner of my eye.
With the base, I alternate between the Illamasqua and the Wake Me Up Foundation and I think I will carry on using those products because they are a dream to apply and their finish is perfect! with the concealer, I always go for the MAC Longwear Concealer, apart from the odd time where I might choose the Erase Paste by Benefit and just dab it around my eyes and on the right corner of my mouth where I have Acne Scars. I then lightly contour my cheeks with MAC Bronzer, I generally don't use Blusher unless I'm going out at night and I want a more severe look. I then finish the look off with a small amount of Vaseline on my lips to moisturise them and go over them with a Nude Lipstick, right now I'm using the MAC Viva Glam in Satin.
As always, please feel free to leave any comments, feedback and what you would like to see on here below, love you all!
