Makeup of the day

MOTD!

Hey lovelies 😘

Ahhhhh, I’m super excited to be back! Just trying to get my shizz together; growing a human is hard!! *laughs*

Today I actually wore makeup, so thought I’d show you my go to look at the minute 🙂

Each time I go to put on makeup I gravitate towards these products, well the face products at least 🙂 eye products vary depending on my mood & what look I’m going for that day 🙂

Today I just wanted a quick look that I could throw on before the school run! So here it is… let’s get started…

Ever since becoming pregnant I haven’t really wore a lot of makeup, my skin has changed so much! BYE BYE Mrs oily, hello dry desert face 😂😂 I’m thinking an updated skincare routine is in order so definitely let me know if you’d like to see that 🙂

Anyway, for my face I’ve been keeping it simple! As this NYX Mineral Stick Foundation is pretty moisturizing I have been loving it, paired with my trusty collection lasting perfection concealer & you can’t go wrong! 😍 Using the stick foundation all over & the collection concealer under my eyes I then blend both in using my FOREVER TRUSTED Real Techniques buffing brush!!😃

As my face has been dry I haven’t been bothering to use powder; if I do set it I’ve been loving using a setting spray!!

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE EYES!!

I wish I had some ground breaking look to share with you, but sadly it’s an easy peasy one today!! Be to be honest, I sometimes prefer these sort of looks, how about you?🙂

Today I used just 2 shadows!! Whaaaat!? Yes, only 2!! & I love how it turned out😍

I used the shade optimistic all over my lid, love this as a base, such a nice consistency & balance of shimmer! 😍 On the crease & outer edge I used the shade agile.. these mauve/burgundy shades are my fave for making my green eyes POP!!😃

No eye look is complete without mascara & brows so I just popped on a small amount of mascara & defined my brows with my fave brow gel🙂

What mascara have you ladies been loving??🙂love trying new ones!!

These next products are probably my ALL TIME FAVE!! ❤ each time I have done my makeup these last few months I’ve reached for these… absolutely loveeeee how they make my skin look!! 😍 what are they you ask?….

Soap & Glory love at first blush, this just gives you the most natural, radiant looking blush/sunkissed glow😍 I then top it off with my FAVE highlighter, Younique a la mode highlight in iridescent 😃

Here’s how they look on my skin…

How beautiful do they look? Love how naturally glowy they make me ☺😍

For my lips I just threw on my maybelline baby lips, think it’s the cherry one so it’s slightly tinted!!☺ I’m living for anything nourishing & hydrating at the minute 🙂

Makeup of the day

Summer skin & hair…

Hi beauties 🌞

Yesterday I fancied doing a simple makeup look & hairstyle, so that’s just what I did! Here is how I achieved it…

Hair
For my hair I just brushed it through & plaited my fringe. My hair was slightly oily as it was second (or maybe third) day hair, but I find this style looks better a bit more ‘grungy’ 🙂 if you want a bit more oomf and body to your hair just spritz a bit of dry shampoo into the roots!!!

Face
For my face I obviously started off with my Simple Moisturiser, after letting that sink into the skin I applied my Benefit Porefessional to my t-zone. As I wanted a light coverage I chose to use my Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation & built up the coverage in areas in need. I absolutely love this foundation for summer it’s so glowy & radiant looking 🙂

To add dimension to my face I applied my Benefit Hoola Bronzer into the hollows of my cheeks, temples & jaw line! This also gives the look a summery sunkissed look :). Just to make sure I was a glowing goddess this day I used my MUA Mosaic blush, this is so beautiful for the pittance it cost!!!

Eyes
For my eyes I did a simple winged liner using my Makeup Revolution double ended liner (review coming shortly!). I then finished off the eyes by applying my mascara of the moment Kiko Active+ Volumising Mascara!!

Brows
As always I used my Benefit Gimme Brow, just look at the results! No words needed. 🙂

Lips
For lips I just applied a tinted lip balm, B. Cosmetics Lip Balm in the shade Caramel 👍
