My Favourite Everyday Make-up Products

I've recently got into an everyday routine with my make-up that I'm really happy with, and so I thought I'd show you my favourite make-up products to use on a day to day basis. I do have a few things that I like to switch up, like my lip products - so I've included the ones I use the most. This is kind of like an extended what's in my make-up bag, I guess!

To start with, I'll apply a mixture of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum and the Bourjois Happy Light Foundation - either using the Sigma Round Kabuki Brush or the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. I prefer the Sigma one when I'm in a rush as I find it blends easier, but the RT one when I want a lighter but more airbrushed finish. For concealer, my picks are the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (for spots) and the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer (for under the eyes). And to set all of this, I have only have one favourite powder - the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.

For blusher, I'll either use the Seventeen Blush in the shade China Pink or the Bourjois Cream Blush in the shade 02 - generally I prefer cream blush in the warmer months. For highlighter, I have 3 options (I do love my highlighter) - I use the MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle every day without fail - I sweep it in a backwards 3 motion down the side of my face. And if I want to look that extra bit glowly, I'll apply the No 7 Instant Radiance on the tops of my cheek bones too. Or, if I want a change from the MAC option, I'll use the Bourjois Java Rice Powder*.

For brows, there's only one option right now and that's the MUA Pro-Brow Kit, applied with my Real Techniques Brow Brush. For eyeshadow, I'll generally use either my MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study or my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze, although sometimes I'll use some more shadow over the top of these. I don't always use eyeliner, but when I do it has to be the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Micro Eyeliner. And finally, for lips my favourite products are - my 2 MAC Lipsticks in Creme Cup or Hue, the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey, the Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me and the Carmex Lip Balm.

  15. Here is my register of should haves!

    Too baby-faced higher Than Sex Mascara…it completely inhabits up to its title! Its buildable while not getting clumpy and has my lashes liking fab!
    Lime Crime Velvetine Lip colorize Suedeberry…not certain if this came move into 2013, although that’s once I discovered it! Its the correct red for redheads and doesnt move a pinch!
    NYX marvel Pencil….I use it as a turn around lip liner & get the restylane edge while not the needle!
    gnaw Honey Lip Liner in Gamay…the good “just desire my lips to seem like they need some hue” shadow! i actually like tacky gloss and this one is great!
    I second the Stila glitter make-up. ..I easily picked up one last week! I additionally like mackintosh ironed pigment in lepidopterous insect for an equal look. A glitter top with a dark crease was a success on the runway S/S 14!
    Of course a kist wouldn’t be complete while not some fasteners!
    Gel II’s hue dynamical answer Remix assortment and thus the matching Polish II line were an enormous seeming!
    For 2014 i seem interchangeable/mix & match made-to-order press-on fasteners can become one thing women explore added. With fasteners being the most well admired agree to, why not have new groups to agree your new outfits?!?!?
    Thanks for sharing your list Randy!
