What's On My Face? #1

I'm back after my short hiatus! I've done most of my exams now and honestly I have been itching to get back it blogging. As I'm sure you can tell by the title I've made a return with my everyday make up. I'm not very adventurous with my day to day make up so I don't tend to stray too far from the same products. At the moment I'm just enjoying a very simple look so I don't have to faff around too much before sixth form. For a lot of people this might be quite a bit of make up for just an everyday look but it's what I feel comfortable wearing and just the routine I'm used to. I'll try and keep this brief or you'll be falling asleep towards the end of the post!


Foundation // Bourjois Healthy Mix (No 51 Light Vanilla)
I love this foundation. It's great for my dry skin and really does last throughout the day and because I'm too lazy for touch ups it suits me perfectly! I love that I was able to find a light enough shade for my skin as well as I can find that difficult with most drugstore make up brands. Also, it smells amazing.

Concealer // Clinique Airbrush Concealer (04 Neutral Fair) - Collection Lasting Perfection (Fair 1)
Yes, I use two concealers. I tend to use the Clinique concealer under my eyes as it claims to illuminate dark circles and it seems to do the job just fine. The only downside I have with this is that it has that typical plastic-y smell that most Clinique products tend to have. Does anyone else notice this or is it just me? My grubby well loved Collection concealer has been a make up staple with me for ages. Need I say any more?

Powder // Rimmel Stay Matte (001 Transparent)
Everyone and their grans bang on about this and I'm sure you all know enough about it without me putting my two cents in. 

Blusher // MUA Mosaic Blush (English Rose)
I got this after I heard Becca Rose saying she loved it. And as she's of fairer complexion like me I decided I would trust her and buy it for myself and I have to say that she's right! It gives just the right amount of colour to the cheeks for a simple everyday look without being too overpowering. And the product itself just looks beautiful.

Bronzer // Bourjois Bronzing Powder (51)
Another beauty blogger favourite. A lot of people say that this is too orangey for them and I can see where there coming from. I just need the smallest amount of this otherwise I end up looking like I'm off to work for Willy Wonka. I use this bronzer to slightly contour my cheekbones and bring some up onto the temples. Plus, this is another gorgeous smelling product. Bravo Bourjois.


Mascara // Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express (Black)
I have the shortest, straightest eyelashes ever and this mascara actually makes me look human. So I'd say this was a pretty good product. The big, chunky brush is also amazing and really grabs every lash.

Brows // Maybelline BROWdrama (Medium Brown)
I like this product but the only issue I have with it is that the brush is slightly too large for the thinner ends of my eyebrows so I like to go through with a spoolie after. Otherwise this product works really well and the colour is a great match for my eyebrows.

Eyeliner // L'oreal Super Liner (Black) - Soap & Glory Smoulder Kohl (Black)
Again, one product is just not enough for me. I know everyone says they're rubbish at liquid liner but I truly am. This L'oreal liner actually enables me to create a cat flick even if it might be a little uneven sometimes (shh). It's super black and lasts quite well throughout the day. The Soap & Glory eyeliner is equally amazing and I use this just lightly along my bottom lash line. It's a really soft pencil and is so easy to smudge out. You've probably got a picture in your head of me with panda eyes now but I promise it's not like that, at least not until about 9 at night.

What products do you use on a day to day basis?
