beauty. my everyday makeup products

I think having a go-to makeup collection is an absolute necessity. I virtually never touch up my makeup during the day, so having products that continue to look good throughout is super important. I own alot of makeup, but these are my must have reliable picks for everyday wear!IMG_0708My first step is prepping. Some people don’t believe in taking these steps, I however think it is crucial for longevity and a professional finish. I use Laura Mercier oil free primer, which is a nice simple base to keep all the other face products in place. Next I prep my lids with MAC painterley paint pot, which evens the colour of my lids and helps to keep my eyeshadow intact. Lastly I use Blistex lip balm to hydrate and soften.IMG_0706Next I take RCMA colour process foundation. This is an oil based foundation in a cream form. I take some directly from the jar, warming it up between my ring fingers then apply to my face. I like to spray some Mario Badescu Rosewater spray to help make the foundation a little more fluid, then blend it all out with a sponge. IMG_0704One of the most important steps now, under eye concealer! My all time favourite is MAC pro longwear, as it provides great coverage and lasts all day without creasing. I also warm this up between my ring fingers then apply and blend out with a sponge. I use Australis illuminating drops on the tops of my cheekbones, cupids bow, the bridge of my nose and the arch of my brow. To add a bit of colour back I use Air Fit cushion blush, and Too Faced Chocolate soleil bronzer. IMG_0703I like to use RCMA no colour powder on my nose, chin and between my brows as those areas tend to be a little oilier, so it helps to keep things intact a bit longer, and also minimize the look of pores. For eyes I use two Colourpop eyeshadows,  ‘wakeup call‘ a neutral brown for the crease, and ‘top notch‘ a warm red brown for the outer V and lower lash line. To add definition I smudge a brown Kryolan eyeliner on the top lash line, and add two coats of Loreal Volume million lashes mascara. The last step is NYX tame and frame pomade for my brows.IMG_0787

This is what I wear for work everyday, and it takes about 20 minutes to achieve. I often end up wearing a variation of this when I go out aswell, and just add a lipstick. It’s a very fresh and natural look that wears well through the day, perfect for people on the go!
