Daily Make Up

And it's as easy as that, my daily make up!

I'll start with L'oreal primer to help my foundation last and to even out my skin. Then I'll use a light coverage foundation as a heavy one will turn my forehead into an actual mirror with all the shine it'll create, especially as I'm out the house from 8 'til 7 so need something to last and not either dry or turn oily. I could do with a heavier one to cover some scars on my face, but it just ain't happening with my combination skin so I'm happy with the super light weight No. 7 one for the time being.

The Garnier roll on I use to hide dark circles under my eyes and then a powder to finish. Max Factor is working at the moment for that flawless(ish) finish, but I can see the palette beneath so I'm on the look out for something new, it might turn out to be my first ever (!) Mac purchase.

Then I'll highlight under my eye brows and just above my cheek bones with Benefit High Beam, this stuff was expnsive, but it'll lasts ages. My face is quite round so this and then some blusher draws out the length of my face (as opposed to the width!). I like this Collection 2000 Shimmer Shades palette as I can wear a different one depending on my mood!

And finally a coat or two of mascara, I'll curl my eye lashes first and then apply Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes, my mascara of choice at the moment. If I have time I might also put one some liquid eyeliner or use my Naked palette, but I can leave the house without if I'm in a rush.

What products feature in your daily make up routine and do you have any to recommend to me?
