What’s On My Face

May 26, 2015

When it comes to my everyday makeup I want something natural, season appropriate and that is going to look good all day… not demanding at all.

After my skin care routine (blog post coming soon) I start with Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer. This is a great affordable base at only £6.99 in boots, that helps my makeup to stick on those few extra hours. Following this I use the famous Nars Sheer Flow Foundation in the shade Deauville, this has been one of my favourite bases for years now and lucky we have just got a Nars in my city centre (took your time there Sheffield). On days where I am looking a little ‘dewier’ than intended or if I know I am going to be out all day I’ll pop on the Translucent Rimmel Stay Matt Powder (01).

As its nearly summer and I look like I’ve never seen the sun I turn to the Nars Laguna Bronzer to warm things up and Nars Orgasm blush to add a burst of life back into my cheeks. These products work brilliantly together and I’m sad to say I have hit pan on the bronzer in an embarrassingly short space of time.

On the eyes I tend to keep it simple with a sweep of colour from my trusty Naked 2 pallet or just liner and mascara. I have used the Rimmel Exaggerate Pencil Eyeliner for years now and love it, it’s super long lasting and extremely black, perfect for really enphasising your eyes. I have also been loving the Fairydrops Scandal Queen mascara but sadly it’s nearly empty so on the search for something new. Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

    Would you recommend the Rimmel primer? I’ve tried the stay matte primer before but didn’t love it.

      Yeah I do really like this primer to be honest nothing magic but helps keep your make up on that bit longer which is always handy and it’s not too expensive, maybe try get it on a 3 for 2 because Rimmel always seems to have deals on. Hope this helps xx
