My Current Make-Up Routine (Fast & Easy)

27 October 2016

Hello, I hope you're all having a lovely week! Today I want to share with you my current make-up routine. Now, I'm not an expert in beauty by any means, but I have gotten my make-up routine down to a fine art and if needs be, I can do my full face in less than ten minutes, impressive right?!


Eyes:
When doing my make-up, the part I focus the most on is my eyes. I swear by the Naked 2 palette from Urban Decay and most of the time I sweep the shades Foxy and Bootycall across the lids of my eyes and brow bone and then blend Tease with a fluffy eyeshadow brush from Nima Brush into the crease of my eye for some depth. For eyeliner I use Penneys' felt tip liner, I find it good for getting the cat-eye flicks really sharp and easy to do. I then finish off my eyes with the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara which is amazing for loads of volume and length.

For my eyebrows, I've been using Benefit's brow range religiously for the past few months which I first talked about in the 'New In: Beauty #2' post back in August. The Precisely, My Brow Pencil and the Goof Proof Brow Pencil are my favourite products, they make getting perfect brows so quick and easy!


Base:
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to the base of my make-up and keep it very basic. I conceal with Catrice's Liquid Camouflage concealer and then apply L'Oreal's True Match foundation. I've always been really loving Penneys' PS Pro Foundation (which you can read about here) and Catrice's HD Liquid Coverage foundation.  

I've recently been using a few brushes from The Elite Professional set from Nima Brush and they've really made a difference in how well my make-up applies, and they're super pretty too! I then set my face with Catrice's Nude Illusion loose powder and add some of the High Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder to give my face a little glow, and that's it!


Lips:

Recently I've really been into matte, nude/mauve colours for my lips and this NYX Liquid Suede lipstick in the shade 'Soft Spoken' is probably my most worn lip colour. I also love Urban Decay's Vice Lipstick in the shade 'Backtalk' which you can read about here.

And there you have it, my super quick, fail-safe make-up routine! What are your go-to make-up products that you always reach for? Let me know in the comments, and thanks so much for reading!
