Everyday Makeup Routine (spring) 

Today I am going to be sharing my everyday make up routine for work, I have recently started doing a really simple glowy bronzed look to keep it fresh for spring.

To begin with I prime my face, the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Minimiser Primer has a beautiful consistency and applies really nicely. It smoothed out the skin and hides pores creating a great base for your foundation. 

On an everyday basis I like to use a matte long lasting foundation so I tend to switch it up daily between Loreal Infallible and Rimmel Stay Matte. Rimmel Stay Matte has a lovely texture and feels much like a mousse, it really reminds me of Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse. It blends really easy and I like to apply this using a brush. 

Under my eyes I conceal using Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in the lightest shade. I also apply this to my eyelids to hide an veins and uneven skin tone. Once I have blended that in with my sponge I like to swipe the Becca Cosmetics Liquid Highlighter in Moonstone on my cheekbones and inbetween my brows to highlight and add some glowiness. I really love how the highlighter still shines through once it is set in place, it really makes my skin feel fresh and glowy. 

To set my under eye concealer I like to bake it using W7 Banana Dreams powder, this is a yellow powder which brightens the under eye area making me look more awake. I like to apply this in a dabbing motion using my sponge so I can get a medium layer on so it can set. 

While I am baking I actually move onto my brows which I try and keep natural but noticeable. I have been trying to use up the remainder of my really old Benefit Browzings which I have had for 4 years now. I like to fill in any gaps and make them a little more defined before setting them with the Model Co Brow Gel. 

Once my brows have dried and my baking has set I dust of the yellow powder and then I apply my setting powder to the rest of my face. I have also been using the Collection Lasting Perfection Powder a lot recently as it is on the shade ivory so I won’t be needing it in the summer. I find this works just as good as my trusty Rimmel Stay Matte. 

For my cheeks I like to keep this looking semi natural and try not to use anything to shimmery. For bronzer I have been totally loving the Soap and Glory Solar Power bronzer, this is a duo toned bronzer which a dark and light shade. I like to mix them together by swirling my brush around and then buffing it onto my cheeks and forehead to create a natural bronzed look.

For blushed I like to keep it simple and Matte and so I always opt for my Kiko blush in the shade 109. 

And then for highlight I used the really pretty Glow All Out by Soap and Glory. This has a really subtle pinky glow with no shimmer so it’s great for a natural look. 

And finally mascara, I picked this up because I saw Zoella talk about it in a video and I am in love with it! It’s so easy to work with and create really long defined lashes. 

So there you have it my really easy simple make up routine! Hope you enjoyed, don’t forget to tell me if you love any of these products aswell.
