Everyday Makeup Look

Happy Friday, my lovelies!
I can't believe how quickly this week has gone by! By this time next week, though, I'll be in school again, writing my last a-level exam, which is English, so that shouldn't be a problem – hopefully!

In today's post, I want to show you the products that I used to create this very simple everyday makeup look.
I opt for this kind of look most of the time, when I'm off to school or to do some shopping – it's a very easy yet effective look!

For the base, I used the Lancôme Énergie De Vie Liquid Moisturiser first and then the SLA Paris Skin Primer*. The primer makes my skin look a bit blurry and sets the perfect base for my foundation. It's also very smooth on the skin and makes any foundation glide on super easily!

For foundation, I used the L'Oréal True Match Foundation in the shade 1.N Ivory. I've already mentioned this lovely makeup product in my recent Feelunique Haul and added a bit of a first impression in there but now I can say that I absolutely love this foundation! The coverage is more medium but definitely buildable and it doesn't feel heavy on the skin at all! I applied the foundation with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and it did work very well, but I feel like it would work even better with a makeup sponge.
After foundation, I used my one true love when it comes to concealers: the Catrice Liquid Camouflage in the shade 005 Natural Light. I don't know how many times I've talked about this already but I know that I'll never get tired of doing so! I applied a bit of the concealer underneath my eyes, all over my nose (still fighting that Rosacea *sigh*) and on a few spots and blemishes that I have, blending it all out with a makeup sponge.

For powder, I used the Manhattan Soft Mat Loose Powder* in the shade 2 Beige together with a powder brush from BH Cosmetics, dusting it lightly on my t-zone and the areas that I know will get a bit shiny throughout the day.

For my eye makeup, I started off by using the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, which somehow didn't make it into the photo, I've just noticed – sorry about that!
After that, I used the newest addition to my eyeshadow palette collection, the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Birthday Suit Eye Palette. I absolutely adore this one! But I don't want to ramble on too much about this as I've planned a full review on it for the blog to go live very soon! The shades I used for this look were Marzipan as my base colour which I applied all over my lid, Toast as my crease colour and Soft Truffle to deepen the crease a little more!

For mascara, I then used the L'Oréal False Lash Superstar X-Fibre Mascara, starting with the black lash primer on my top and bottom lashes and letting them set for a few minutes before going back in with the actual mascara, applying one coat on my bottom and two coats on my top lashes.

For my brows, I used my trusty Essence Make Me Brow Sculpting Gel Mascara in 01 Blondy Brows and the Manhattan Eyebrow Pencil* in Blondy Brow 93D. Somehow, brow products that are made for lighter hair colours suit me way better than the ones for darker hair even though I have brown hair myself?! 
For filling them in, I use the pencil first, going through the hair with a few gentle strokes until I'm satisfied with how they look. Then I use the gel mascara to set them in place and give them a bit more of a decent shape.

Sometimes I also like to apply a nude lipstick to finish off this makeup look but most of the time I'm done after doing my eyebrows.

I really want to start using more 'daring' shades on the eyes and on the lips as well because I want to create some celebrity-inspired makeup looks and post them here on the blog – make sure to leave some celebrities down below that you'd like me to get some inspiration from!

I have so many ideas for some new blog content lately but I'm not sure how to turn all those ideas into new posts! But I'll find a way, I guess! :)
