My Everyday Makeup:

Ahh, It's a beautiful 18'C in London today and it's absolutely lovely. It's nice to get out of my winter coat and slip into something lighter. With the weather being so nice, it's sprung me into an uplifting and happy mood. So, I decided to wear my new grey speckled dress from Topshop and take a few selfies and other snaps of my makeup. This is the makeup I wear everyday (I don't wear all of this to school, I skip lipstick and eye shadow) and have actually added a few new products and thrown out some. Here it all is below on me. Please ignore my eyebrows, I don't fill them in but I certainly need to get them threaded again! I feel like I've let myself go, ha!

I start off by priming my face with Smashbox Photo Finish Primer (small size) which I bought only a few days ago and love it already. Then it's on to the current love of my life, the Dr Jart+ Water Fuse BB Cream which gives a nice, dewy glow to the skin. I apply it with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Then, because I have pretty bad spots (the pictures are very kind in not revealing them), I actually apply the L'Oreal True Match Foundation as a concealer. Only in small amounts and on really bad blemishes.

While letting all of the face products sink into my skin, I move onto eyes. I have pretty oily eyelids so I can't get away with not using a primer. When I bought the POREfessional from Benefit, they gave me a little sample of the Stay Don't Stray eyelid primer. It's really good and hope to get the full size soon. After sweeping that all over my lids, I then apply M.A.C's Prolongwear Paint Pot in Chilled On Ice with M.A.C 239. This product is lovely, it gives a whopper load of gold shimmer which complements my hazel eyes perfectly. Then a good few lashings of Benefit's BADgal mascara (which was also a nice little sample).

Back to the skin, I give my face a light dusting of the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in translucent with the Real Techniques Blush Brush. Moving onto lips and cheeks. I use the Topshop cream blush in Head Over Heels (the picture in the link does not do it justice! It's a gorgeous pinky peach) using the Real Techniques Stippling Brush and Revlon's Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie .

Hope you are all having a good weekend (lucky you if you are at Coachella!) Speak soon!
