Current Every Day Makeup Favourites

A small insight into my favourite every day makeup products!

Even though I absolutely love make up, it's quite rare for me to want to apply a full face every single day which is why I thought I'd share my five quick makeup 'on the go' products. I use these every day for a fresh faced look and it takes me no more than two or three minutes!

PREP: There's nothing worse than applying foundation straight to bare, dry skin which is why I use Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré Nourishing Moisturiser first. This creates a soft, subtle glow whilst also replenishing the moisture in your skin! It's not sticky and doesn't have a 'soapy smell' so it compliments my routine amazingly. You could also mix a bit of this with your usual foundation to create a tinted moisturiser effect!

BASE: My current go to foundation is Nars Sheer Glow because it's light yet gives good medium coverage so doesn't feel so heavy on the skin. This goes on like a dream over the Embryolisse moisturiser and if applied with a beauty blender, gives you the most gorgeous glow!

EYES: A simple lashing of mascara does the world of good for me, makes me look more awake and completes the look. I love the effect that false lashes give me but the effort of applying them every day would be tedious so I stick to a mascara that's going to give me a similar look! My favourite mascara for this is the L'Oreal Superstar False Lash Mascara, one end contains fibres to thicken and lengthen the lashes and the other end holds the mascara! Perfect dupe for getting that false lash effect!

CONCEAL: The trick to getting the perfect fresh faced 'no makeup' look is concealer! Covering dark under eye circles means you look instantly awake and brightens the face up. I've only recently discovered the LA Girl Pro-Conceal HD Concealer as all the YouTubers talk about it, so thought I would give it a whirl. It gives the most amazing soft creamy coverage without looking the slightest bit cakey, what more could you possibly want?!

HIGHLIGHT: This is possibly my most favourite step of my every day makeup, HIGHLIGHTING! There's such a huge hype around highlighting and strobing at the moment that I've just gone highlighter mad and this one is by far my most used one. The Balm's Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter gives you as much or as little glow as you want, use it in the evening for a candle lit highlight or in the day time for a healthy 'inner glow'. It's not full of glitter chunks which makes it so soft and subtle yet so pigmented!
