Hi everyone! Long time no talk, I have missed posting on here so much and as today is a public holiday here in Launceston I thought I would take advantage of it and write a well overdue blog post. Today I am writing about my updated every day 15 minute makeup routine! I personally don’t have much time in the morning to apply my makeup before work so all the products I use are quick to apply and versatile. I also go for long wearing products as I am at work from 8am-5:30pm.
After I have applied all my skin care I go straight in with my foundation – Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless. This is honesty my HG foundation, it looks amazing on th skin, keeping it looking as natural as possible while having a full coverage. I apply this with my Chi Chi Cosmetics blending sponge. I find this is the quickest and best way to apply my foundation and to be honest I never apply my foundation with anything other than this sponge.
I then do my brows while the foundation dries and sinks into the skin. I use Poni Cosmetics Brow Brush and a powder from Booki Brow. I don’t need to do much to my brows as I get them threaded and tinted regularly. I usually only spend 1-2 minutes on my brows! I go back to my skin and start bronzing myself up to look sun kissed and healthy. I use Too Faced Chocolate Soilel in Medium-Dark. This is a smooth bronzer which blends out very quickly! I also use this bronzer for eyeshadow and blend it through my crease with a large fluffy brush, this literally only takes a minute and makes a world of difference to my overall makeup look! I then grab whatever mascara I am loving and at the moment I am using Poni Cosmetics – White Knight Mascara. This is a great mascara as it has the two wands, one for length and one for volume. I apply a layer of each on both eyes and I apply this generously! I cannot live without mascara it opens your eyes up so much and makes you look more awake.
To finish off the skin I use some highlighter on the tops of my cheekbones and also down the bridge of my nose. I use Moonstone by Becca and I find this gives you a nice glow without being too over the top for everyday wear. I finish the whole look by spraying my face with a setting spray from Maybelline – Master Fix. This settles any powder I have applied and melts it into my skin to look more natural and also sets my face for the whole day.
And voila … That is my everyday look complete! On my lips I’ll just use whatever lip balm I have on me or a butter gloss from NYX in either Creme Bruleè or Eclair. A little tip from me – If you need to touch up throughout the day just use the beauty sponge you applied your foundation with. This soaks up any oils and it will have some foundation on it still so it will fix the coverage without caking your skin.
I hope you have enjoyed this post and stay tuned as I will be posting a lot more! I also have some exciting news which I will talk to you all about soon.
