EVERYDAY | Makeup edition

Everyday I usually wear the same coat or same shoes and use the same bag, and so I have decided that periodically I will do an 'everyday' post, and so today's is my everyday makeup. My makeup is never usually anything special and some days it does vary, for example I wear lipstick or have eyeshadow on, but generally I keep it simple.

I try not to wear a lot of makeup, but some days you just have one of those 'I feel rubbish' days, but these are the products I use everyday. (NOTE: I also use eyelash curlers but I couldn't find them!)

  • MUA Primer
  • Miss Sporty So Matte Foundation in Ivory
  • Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Porcelain (this is a shade too dark for me, I have always have Champagne but they didn't have any the last time I bought some so I had to get this in the mean time)
  • Collection Sheer Loose Powder in Barely There
  • MUA Blusher in 002 Rose
  • Fraulein Powder Brush
  • Fraulein Blush/Contour Brush
My face isn't the favourite part of me because it is tempremental and doesn't often co-operate. I use the primer, then liquid foundation and once that is dry, I use the dream matte mousse as a concealer as I have found that because it is slighty darker it is better at hiding the circles under my eyes and any blemishes I may have. I then powder my face and use the MUA blusher along the cheekbone. I sometimes use bronzer to contour, but if I do that it is usually if I am going out or there is an occassion and I'll often team it with a smokey eye.

  • Avon Super Magnify in Brown
  • Avon Super Curlacious in Black
  • Soap and Glory Thick and Fast in Black
  • Avon Super Shock in Black
  • Benefit Bad Girl Lash in Black
  • Collection Extreme 24 Felt Tip Liner in Black
  • Virgin Vie Eyeshadow Pallette (for eyebrows)
  • Fraulein Angled Brush (for eyebrows)

The brown mascara is my 'base layer' as I have found that using a brown mascara first has helped keep my eyelashes in a better condition. I use this after I have curled my lashes. I then use various mascaras to create length, volume and definition. Occasional I use a Miss Sporty mascara to separate lashes if needs be. With eyebrows, I have them yes, but where I used to pluck them to such an extreme that it was basically a line of single hairs they have never grown back right. So I keep them in shape as best I can and then go over them with a dark shadow from the Virgin Vie palette with the angled brush. If I want some depth in my eyes then I will use that dark brown shade and run it along the crease at the top of my eye lid and then blend with a round tip brush.

  • Avon Conditioning Lipstick in Plum Sparkle
  • Miss Sporty Perfect Colour Lipstick in 055 Dream
  • Barry M Lip Paint in 156
  • Avon Lipstick in Red 2000
  • Markwins International Lipstick in 00006
  • Avon Lipstick in Amythest Gold
When I wear lipsticks, I do not go with neutral, I like to be big and bold and brass! These are the colours I tend to use most often (you can see the Markwins Int'l being the one I have used most! I love having bold shades and I would recommend all of these - the colour stays, once 'dabbed' with tissue it lasts, they don't dry out your lips and are all worth the money.

I will try and make a post about my Fraulein brushes soon because they are just wonderful! What sort of makeup do you wear everyday?
