How Makeup Transforms My Face!

Posted on June 26, 2013

Following on from my last post featuring some lovely bloggers without makeup (check it out here) I thought I’d talk through my makeup routine and let you know which products I use.

I’d also like to add this isn’t my every day routine, unfortunately I don’t have time to do a ‘full face’ every day! I see this as a good thing though as it gives my skin a chance to breathe!

So, to start with, no makeup at all!

My skin isn’t too bad really, I don’t tend to get spots but I do suffer from dry skin on my forehead so I have to be sure moisturise frequently. For those that have dry skin like me, exfoliating and moisturising are really important to keep the dry skin at bay! (sorry for the miserable face!!)

Firstly I do my eyebrows, I have to fill them in as they’re pretty sparse. I then do my eye makeup – I like neutral tones with a darker shade in the crease, and I always wear eyeliner with a small flick to the side. I also like to add a little highlight on the inner corners of my eyes to brighten them up, I need this especially as I get pretty bad dark circles!

Then primer and foundation – looking better already! I usually use my fingers to apply both.

Add mascara – this really makes a difference as I have short eyelashes.
