Daily Makeup #1

Last Saturday I woke up sporting a rather fresh face with some seriously glowing skin. *pats self on the back* Despite deeming it a good skin day, I couldn’t help but go for the “more is more” approach when doing my makeup. It seems stupid but sometimes I can’t help by taking advantage of a really great skin day by going to town at my dressing table.

I’ve been loving smokey eyes recently, which is the main contributor to my “i’m most definitely wearing makeup” look. Mac’s Soba and Clinique Black Honey eye shadows are where it’s at for an autumnal everyday smokey eye, working beautifully with the Collection Fast Stroke Liquid Liner (for winged liner) and the L’Oreal Gelmatic gel liner (for tight lining). I generally go quite light on the brows if I’m going to go eyeshadow heavy, but this time I applied my Bobbi Brown brow kit before I decided on my eye shadow – so things were a little heavier than I would have liked…

I kept my skin looking fresh and flawless using the YSL Touche Eclat Foundation and the Estee Lauder Brush on Glow BB Highlighter, with the Tarte Full Coverage Amazonian Clay Powder Foundation (longest name ever) to set things and matte things down slightly where I’m more oily.

I’m obsessed with the Maybelline Dream Sun Bronzer/Blush combo at the moment, and use the bronzer everyday, but for real smokey eye days I’ve been using the Rimmel blush in Santa Rose to add the most natural, subtle flush to my cheeks.

To finish things off, I pop a tiny bit of nude liner in the inner corners of my waterline to brighten things up – especially with the reddy tones of Black Honey on my eyes and line my lips with the Charlotte Tillbury Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk. Et voila!

I wouldn’t exactly call this an everyday makeup look, but I’ve been doing this a fair bit recently and I’ve been loving it. I think I might make an effort to do more Daily Makeup posts on here as I’ve quite enjoyed documenting the days where I play around with my stash a little. Next up: red lips for work! Woah there…
