My everyday skin care and make up routine

Hello hello! Today I thought I’d post about my every day skin routine and make up. I only ever really wear make up when I am working or going out for the day on an adventure as in shopping, dinner, movies etc. Any other time I like to keep my face fresh and clean.  I have combination skin so depending on the weather, my health.. I can have bad or good skin days. I usually don’t keep make up on my face for more then 8 hours.

Slight disclaimer – I am not sponsored or anything by any of the following company’s, this is my own daily make up and skin care routine. This is not a review of any type.

Every morning and night I use my straight forward easy skin care routine. I use Simple moisturiser face wash, soothing facial toner and hydrating light moisturiser.  This has done wonders for my skin.  It keeps my face feeling smooth, moisturised and clean.

I keep a pretty easy make up routine because I don’t like wearing much make up on every day basis.

The first thing I use is Face of Australia face base primer, 3 in 1. I have found this great because it doesn’t make my face oily as its oil free however it still gives a dewy look.

I then use Maybelline Fit me foundation in 125 which is a warm tone. I think it gives a light to medium coverage and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. It’s easy to apply, I use a real techniques stippling brush.

After my foundation I’ll use concealer, I like to use L’Oréal True Match in beige 4. I have horrible dark circles under my eyes so I feel this gives a good coverage and also brightens the area up.

To make sure my foundation and concealer stay in place I use Maybelline Instant Age rewind pressed powder in Nude. Again this doesn’t feel heavy on my face and I like the light coverage it adds.

Now for my blush I like to swap between my favourite two. First one is Elf blush in Tickled Pink, I think it gives a matte finish and it’s a lovely natural pink colour. Second one also Elf but it’s a baked blush in Rich rose, this gives a slight dark rose colour but also gives some highlight to the cheek area.

For my eyes, I’ll start with my eyebrows. I unfortunately am naturally blonde which gives me that “no eyebrow” look. I darken my hair so I like to use pencil on my eye brows in a light brown colour. I use a pencil from a store called Daiso! I paid $2.80 for this and it’s the best I’ve tried! I then go between mascaras. The mascaras i like to use are Essence Lashes go wild or Rimmel Extra Super lash in black.

Then at the end of all this, if I feel like adding some lipstick I’ll usually go for a close to skin colour or corally colour. I use Maybelline Color Sensation in the colour Mango Diamonds 445. On top of this I’ll use Elf Super glossy lip shine in Honey do. This lip gloss has a lovely sweet smell and doesn’t taste to bad either haha!

And that is my every day skin care and make up routine. I like to keep it simple :)!

I hope you enjoyed reading about my routine.
