I don’t wear makeup every single day, there is no point when I’m staying home and nobody will see me. However, if I am going to make a quick trip out the house I will put in the effort and wear some. As silly or vain as it may be, it makes me feel more confident so, why not! I keep it pretty basic during the week if I’m not doing anything too exciting. I have compiled a list of my everyday makeup products. You can read about my everyday busy mum products here.
MAC – Studio Fix Fluid in NW 20 – I have used this foundation for years. Its got fantastic coverage and also has SPF 15 which I like, but isn’t good for flash photography.
NARS Radiant creamy concealer in Vanilla- I pretty much just use this for under my eyes. Its lighter than my natural skin tone so it brightens the area.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in medium plus – I really like this powder. I have used this product for years aswell. It keeps my foundation and concealer in place.
MAC Bronzing Powder in Bronze – I only like matte bronzer when I am putting it all over my face. This one has been a favourite for years. It’s a really nice, natural colour.
MAC Mineralise Skinfinish in Global Glow – Most days I wear makeup, I will use this as a highlighter and eyeshadow. I sweep it over my cheekbones, down my nose and cupids bow and on my eyelids. It gives a nice fresh dewy look.
Tarte Cheek stain in Blushing bride and Josie Maran Coconut water colour in Poppy Paradise – I alternate between these two depending on my mood. I switched to cream blush a year or so a go. These are my absolute favourite from my collection.
L’oreal Brow sylist definer in Blonde – I actually normally use the MAC eye brow in Fling. But I couldn’t find the time to get to the mall that Mac is in so, I bought this on a whim when I was at Walmart and I’m very pleasantly surprised with it.
Tweezerman rose gold eyelash curler – I purchased this from Sephora. It does the job.
Tarte Amazonia Clay smart mascara – I quite like this mascara. But it can dry and crumble on my cheeks which I don’t like.
Urban Decay Naked Pallet – This is the original pallet. I bought it about 4 years ago when I was on holidays in Hawaii. I love it and by far my most used eyeshadows. It has a great variety or natural colours. I don’t use all the colours every day but I do use the highlighter colour, virgin, in my inner corner of my eyes to open them up. I really need it on those tired days. Which is like, every day!
After writing them all out it seems like I use heaps of products! But now I have applying my makeup down to a fine art, between a 2-year-old who gets into EVERYTHING and a 6 month old who always seems to time being cranky and tired just as I start to get myself ready, there really is no time for winged eyeliner or a vibrant lip anymore. But, I’m totally okay with that 😉 Then I finish it all off with a mum bun 👍
