My Everyday Makeup!

Today's little post is going to be showing all you lovely people my everyday makeup look, and the products I use to create this on a day to day basis! I don't like to use too many makeup products everyday, as when I get up I like something quick and easy to apply... but still something that makes me look slightly more alive first thing in the morning!


This is the finished look. I like to go for a "fresh faced" feel, and use my foundation to even out my skin tone (difficult when you have a million freckles!) and just hide any little flaws that may be showing! I like pink cheeks to add colour to my skin, and I feel this just stops me looking too washed out, whilst also giving that "just taken a nice walk in the autumn breeze" look! My eyes are kept fairly neutral, sticking to variations of brown shades which works wonders with blue eyes; and I keep my lips a natural colour, while just use my product to make them "pop" that little bit more!

So what do I use? 

Whilst these are obviously not all the products I use for this look, below are a few of the key cosmetic items that I like to use when creating my everyday makeup.





1. Rimmel lasting finish foundation - I use the shade 103 (True Ivory).
2. Collection cover up stick - perfect for hiding spots and small areas of redness.
3. MUA Bronzer shade 1
3. MUA Blusher in the shade cupcake
4. Black pencil eyeliner (ok it's to small now to even read what brand it is....)
5. MUA undress me too palette
6. Seventeen doll'd up mascara (black)
7. Mac cremsheen lipstick in the shade modesty



When I have university or work I like to keep my hair up out of the way, because I find it just makes life easier in the long run (especially when I'm running to and from the train station)! Another reason - as well as the fact that I'm just lazy in the morning - is that at this time of year the weather ends up destroying your perfect hair whenever you decide to make an effort! I generally go for a "messy" bun as it keeps my hair well contained without going for that sleek and perfect look - meaning it doesn't matter if it gets knocked or messed up further throughout busy days!

What's your "go to" make up look for everyday wear?!
