Hi loves! So I haven't posted a makeup video on my youtube channel (find here) in a hot minute, and I had gotten a couple of questions on my Instagram (find here) about what products I use on a day to day basis so I thought the best thing to do was a lil blog post!
I usually moisturize beforehand with Cetaphil's DermaControl Oil Control Moisturizer as I have pretty oily skin, and it works really well at keeping my oil at bay!
Foundation-wise, I use my holy-grail foundation which is Estée Lauder's Double Wear Stay-in-Place Liquid Foundation in the shade Amber Honey during late autumn, winter and spring, then in the shade Rich Cocoa during the summer and late autumn. I can honestly say that I have never found a foundation that has worked as well as this one: it keeps your face matte all day and is medium-full coverage so you don't even need concealer! What a gem!
To set my foundation, I use MAC's Studio Fix Pressed Powder in the shade NW43 during late autumn, winter and spring and NW45 during the summer and late autumn. It is super important to have two different foundations because as the seasons change, so will your skin tone.
My favourite blush to use is Sephora's own Blush in Love Sick (No. 22), I just dust it lightly on the apples of my cheeks (tip: smile while you're applying it!) and glide it upwards.
I'm fortunate enough that I've never had to use an eyelid primer so I just go straight in with two MAC eyeshadows: first I spread Red Brick all over my lids, then put Shroom in the corner of my eyes and blend! Super simple right?
My trusty eyeliner is Seventeen's High Drama Intense Liquid Liner, and I always draw on my signature cat eye.
For mascara, this can honestly change depending on how I'm feeling, but I do always go back to Lâncome's Doll Lashes Mascara, it gives the dreamiest lashes in my opinion.
Now onto my favourite parts, my lips! I think this is what I get asked about the most and hallelujah, I am finally divulging my favourite two products to use: firstly, I always use a lip primer (usually I apply this at the beginning of my makeup routine, that way it has a little time to settle in beforehand, and the one I use is MAC's Prep and Prime Lip Primer, it makes your lips feel so so lush, and smoothes them over without changing the consistency of the lipstick/lip liner you'll be wearing on your lips.
Then I spread MAC's Lip Liner in Plum all over my lips et voila! I'm done!
I hope you all enjoyed this post and I'll have a video tutorial up on my channel soon!
