I have written a lot of posts about the make up and bath products I use (See the latest one here). But I have never actually written about how I use my make up day-to-day. As I have said before, I am not a beauty blogger, but I thought people might want to know what my routine is.
Now, my routine is far from fancy and I get told by Booey all the time that I am not using things quite right, but I like what I do lol!
Morning and evening I cleanse, tone and moisturise using the following.
When in the bath or shower I will wash my face with a liquid cleanser (this is usually whatever is on offer at the time lol). Then I would usually use a face wipe to cleanse my face once out of the bath. At the moment I am using the No7 cleansing lotion. I bought a special box of No7 products a while ago. the box cost £30, but everything inside was worth a total of £150 if bought separately! I completely forgot that the cleansing lotion was in there until I took another product out of the box a few weeks ago.
The cleansing lotion feels nice, but I am not sure whether I like it or not yet. This may be just be cause I am not used to using it.
I then use Boots cucumber facial toner. My face feels really clean after using it and not dry which is a great bonus for me. Then it is time to moisturise. I am currently using Olay anti wrinkle firm lift day cream. Again, I have loads of moisturizers (I have no idea why) and I am slowly making my way through them. This is a lovely moisturizer, I’ve not noticed a change in my wrinkles but I think my skin looks good after using it.
What I do next depends on how much time I have.
If I only have a few minutes I will just put a quick “face” on. This consists of eyeshadow, mascara and some face powder. It only takes me a few minutes to do and it is surprising how good I feel just wearing a little make up.
If I have time I will do a “full face” of make up. I will put on foundation then concealer. According to Booey I do concealer wrong. I should be putting it on under my eyes in a triangle shape, not just dabbing it on lol. She does know more about make up than me so I suppose I cannot argue with her lol!
Then I put on a little face powder to help the foundation last. I then use a dot of eye shadow primer on each eye before applying eyeshadow. The colour and type of eye shadow I use depends on how I feel that day. I then put on some mascara.
Blusher comes next, I pull my best fish face (as taught to by Booey) and apply it along my cheek bone. The No7 blusher I am using is a skin matched one that was in the No7 Advent calendar.
Finally a little lipgloss or lipstick, again which one depends on my mood.
These are the products that I use for day-to-day make up. I have slightly more expensive things that I use if I am going out for the evening or some where nice during the day. I may do an evening make up post at some point.
At the end of the day I wash my face and do my cleanse, tone and moisturise, making sure all my make up is off.
So there you have it, my daily make up routine. Another little insight into my little life lol! I hope you enjoyed reading it.
Take care everyone.
