Go-To Makeup; Warm Tones & Flawless Base

I keep my makeup super simple and usually got for the same natural look.However I was having a good makeup day and loved my base.So I thought I’d share my simple makeup look. I used to be a true perfectionist with my makeup. But now I’m much quicker and ‘care free’. I seem to always do things in a random order and all over the place but my makeup always turns out decent!

I start with my brows which I simply fill in with my ABH Dipbrow Pomade in ‘Blonde’. And I always used to carve my brows by a line below my brow. But I simply primed my eyes with the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 1. And blended the concealer up to my brow to give a subtle carve. And set this in place with the Rimmel Stay Matter Powder in 001.

On the eyes I went for an all matte with warm tones from the Jaclyn Hill X Morphe Palette. I used shades ‘Pukey’ and ‘Pooter’. Which are light warm orange shades. I took these in my outer crease but blended them up to open up my eye. Then using ‘Buns’ and browner shade, I added depth to my crease and blended into my centre lid from the inner corner. And took ‘Mocha’ on my lash line to bring all the shadow together and add definition.

After my eyeshadow I prime my face using the Nivea Express Hydration Primer. As well as the Wonderland Studio Finish Primer on my t-zone. These two primers work really well together as they keep my skin hydrated and makeup on all day. Next I colour correct redness below my foundation. I use the Freedom HD Longwear Concealer in Green. Which has always been a staple for me.
For foundation, I’m using a mix of my two favourites. The Boujois Healthy Mix Serum in 52 and the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow in 202 ‘creamy Natural’. I love this combination as my base looks super flawless. But the foundations are both light and comfortable. I blend these in with my Spectrum A02 brush which is actually amazing!

To conceal and highlights my under eyes. I’m using the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in shade ‘1’. I also take this lightly on my chin, nose and forehead to highlight. And I then set my base in place with the Technic Colour Correcting Loose Powder. This powder will be a forever favourite of mine. It colour corrects and keeps makes my makeup long lasting. But it doesn’t cake up at all so is a true winner. I mainly pack this on under my eyes and t-zone. And lightly around my whole face.

Moving onto ‘contour’ which I do quite lightly. I used the Maybelline Master Contour to sculpt out my cheekbones. I don’t often reach for this but I really liked how it looked and blended. And of course I bronzed up my face with the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer.This is truly the best bronzer ever and saves my pale face.
I’m falling out of love with highlighter currently. I never really feel like something obvious. So I used the Collection Speedy Highlight in Pearl Sheen.. As it’s quite subtle and the pearl shade suits my makeup. I also took this on my brow bone, cupids bow and nose as well as my cheekbones!

Going back to my eyes to finish off. I took the same brown shade again ‘Mocha’ on my lower lash line. I applied it on my outer lash line but blended it in towards the inner corner. I can never not do my makeup without applying shadow on my upper and lower lash line. And after this I used my favourite mascara. Which is the Maybelline Lash Sensation in Black.
For my lips I lined them with the ‘Caramel Nougat’ Lip Liner from MUA which is a simple nude. I did start of the day with a darker lip but I took these photos later on. Where I was wearing the Mac Liptensity Lipstick in ‘Doe’. Paired with the Natural Collection Clear Gloss over.

I did originally take my Mac Patent Polish Lip Stick in ‘It’s Really Me’. Paired with my Buxom Lip Cream in ‘Dolly’ for extra gloss. Which you can see in the photo below, if you’d want a slightly darker nude lip.

And finally, I don’t know why I do this step last. I’ve just got in the routine of doing so. But I use my L’Oreal Brow Artist Brow Gel in Light/Medium. To set my brows in place and gives them so more definition. I have to apply brow gel otherwise my brows look dreadful.

This makeup look is quite simple but is my go-to look. It’s so quick and I love the base and shadow. This is my first makeup look of 2018 so hope you all enjoyed!
