Hey Ladies! I have been wanting to do an 'every day' makeup post for a while now but after a few failed attempts at taking blog worthy pictures with my point and shoot camera, I decided to wait until I got my DSLR as the quality is a million times better. I recently got the Canon EOS 600D and I am in love with it. The quality is out of this world and I am so happy I can finally do more face of the day type posts. I love how it shows up every detail of my makeup and doesn't blur anything out or mesh the colours together like a lot of cheaper cameras tend to.

The reason I have been wanting to to do an every day makeup post is because I love seeing other bloggers everyday looks and over the years I have watched tonnes of 'every day makeup' videos on youtube. I often think we see bloggers doing glam makeup looks and the  more natural, simple makeup looks can often be forgotten about. As much as I love falsies and heavy smokey eyes on a night out, I also like to embrace the natural look when I'm not going anywhere too fancy and love to see what other girls wear on a day to day basis.  

With this being said, I am going to talk you through how I created the above look. I have been wearing the same look on a day to day basis for a couple of months now and I love how it looks natural but still has a pop of colour to brighten my face up. It is very quick and easy to create to, on average it takes me around 10/15 minutes from start to finish and I think it would suit most skin tones.

Step 1 - First I apply the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation in shade 'Soft Beige' all over my face using a Real Techniques buffing brush. I tend to use two pumps to cover my whole face and I make sure it is completely buffed into my skin to avoid any unwanted tide lines. I love this foundation for day to day wear as it really brightens up my complexion and isn't too heavy. 

Step 2 - I then apply an under eye concealer. In these photos above I used the Maybelline Cover Stick in the shade 'Ivory' as the super light shade helps to cover any dark circles and brighten up my eyes. I dab this under my eyes and the inner corners and blend it out with my ring finger. I have also been using Benefit Erase paste so I will normally just use the one I grab first.

Step 3 - I then powder my whole face using the Real Techniques powder brush with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish natural in the shade 'Medium'. This gives the skin a light coverage but just enough to control any shine.

Step 4 - I then apply NARS Laguna bronzer under my cheekbones, on my temples and down my nose. I usually use a MAC kabuki brush but if I want to take more time on contouring I will use the Real Techniques contour brush.

Step 5 - I then apply MAC MSF in the shade 'Gold Deposit' along the top of my cheekbones to give my skin a bronze glow.

Step 6 - I then move on to my eyes where I start with my eyebrows. I try to keep them fairly natural looking so I dust a teeny bit of Benefit Brow Zings dark powder through mid to end section. I tend to concentrate on the mid to outer sections of my brow as I'm not keen on them looking too heavy during the day.

Step 7 - I then move on to eyeshadow and lately I have been reaching for the NARS duo 'Isolde'. I find this little duo so handy as it is all I need to create a whole look. I apply the light gold shade all over my lid using a MAC 239 brush and the darker shade in my crease using the Sigma E35 brush. I then buff both shades together to blend them and remove any harsh lines.

Step 8 - I then apply MAC 'Feline' eye pencil to my waterline as I find the deep black shade looks great against my light blue eyes. I only apply a small amount for a day to day look but I would apply more for a night out along with a liquid liner for my upper lash line.

Step 9 - The next step is mascara. I have been loving the Revlon Grow Luscious mascara lately so I curl my lashes and apply two coats of this to my top and bottom lashes to open up my eyes.

Step 10 - I then apply a quick coat of lipstick depending on which one takes my fancy. In the photo above I am wearing Revlon Lollipop lip butter as it is vibrant without being too over the top. As you all probably know by now, I love a bright lip so I always tend to wear a berry pink or orange day or night.

So there we have it, my everyday makeup routine. I know you may think it seems a lot of steps for ten minutes but it really doesn't take as long as it may sound. This morning I got out of bed at 7.15, had a shower, applied my makeup and was still ready by 7.30. Maybe I'm just super quick at getting ready? 8) How long does it take you to do your every day face?

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I wear my makeup on an everyday basis and let me know if you would like to see any more of these step by step type posts.

I hope you are all well!

Lots of Love,
