Doing my everyday makeup.

I really fancied doing a beauty post, but I didn't just want to show you my makeup because there isn't anything particularly interesting or different about makeup. So this is going to be a how I do my everyday makeup, winter edition. So I try to cleanse, tone and moisturiser everyday, i may be a bit rubbish at skin care but I do moisturise everyday to avoid very dry skin which I easily get and especially in winter. It also helps my makeup go better. So here goes...

 At the start I begin with foundation like most people do and currently I'm using Rimmel Match Perfection which is supposed to give the skin 24hr moisture hydration and to blur the pores. I'm not sure if it does give 24hr hydration because I don't wear my makeup that long but it does blur my pores to give my skin a more flawless finish. It also has SPF 20 in so even in the winter sun that doesn't seem much but can still damage your skin over time. The only thing I don't love about the product is the the colour has a pink undertone so it doesn't match my olive undertone(even though I'm very pale at the moment), but I have to really blend it into my neck otherwise I get the horrible line. So I buff the product which is a medium coverage all around my face and down onto my neck. I spend a few minutes working it into my skin focusing and areas like my nose where my skin is less even.
Then I use a fluffy brush to do an all over with my Rimmel Stay Matte powder to keep the shine away.

The bane of my existence is my under eye bags that are truly terrible. I use a few different products on them to tackle the problem even though one bit of bad lighting and i'm back to the beginning. I use the Rimmel Wake Me Up anti fatigue corrector concealer generously under them and pat the product in with my ring finger which is apparently the most delicate. I then go on to use the Maybelline highlight corrector to really get rid of the darkness and then blend gain with my foundation stippling brush.

Eyebrows are pretty easy for me because I don't mind the thickness so I leave them alone in that way, but then groom through them to get the hairs going in the right direction and then fill them in with brown eye shadow because they can be sparse in places. (Go lighter then you think because you don't want slugs)
Today I wore a silver eye look because I didn't know what I was going to wear for the rest of the day when I went out. (I'm going to see Fantastic Beasts and where to find them tonight!) I still don't think I've mastered eye shadow blending so I didn't want to a close up for you all you all to critique. I then applied eyeliner, thinker then usual with a very small flick because my hooded eyes can make cat eyes difficult. I finished my eyes off with curling my lashes and put a few coats of mascara on.

To complete the whole look I did a tiny bit of armature couture in the form of brushing Bourjois chocolate Bronzer in the hollows of m cheeks wile I do a very unattractive sucky fish face. And last but not least I dab on some Benefit highlighter on to catch the light. And done.

What is your favourite makeup product?

"If you like piña Caladas"

I appologise for the bad tittle but I couldn't help myself and I get that song in my head every time I use these Body Shop products. They were a gift from my best friend as a little joke because we sing that song a lot and because she knows I love all things body shop. 
I have annoyingly sensitive skin so I have to be careful about what products I let come into contact with my skin. I never need to worry about the body shop even though it isn't as natural as lush some would say. But I truly forget this when I smell of cocoanut and pineapple and it's very enjoyable having family and friends asking if anyone else can smell cocoanut and I can say smugly yes that's me.  

I am not new to the body shops famous body butter so I'll keep it simple; ifs you want to be mouterized and smell delightful then this is for you. I really love the sorbet even though it's not something I would pick but I've really used it a lot due to its beautiful consistency. It's like a mouterizer that will soak into your skin and is a real treat for your skin. I actually used it when shaving just because it was near to me and I'm very glad that it worked very well, but that is definitely not what it is meant for so maybe don't try it. 

Finally this body scrub is beautiful. It's so smooth and soft which is not what you look for in a scrub but seriously people. It's perfect. I'm fed up of having my skin scrubbed red raw when I just want to exfoliate one layer and not all of my skin. It's like a cream with small pieces that gently get rid of your dead skin and of course you smell amazing after. I would recommend using this product before shaving because our skin goes through some hard work so when using razors you should use something that's kind to your skin and won't irritate unnecessarily.

What skin products do you like?   

This years suede skirt.

Autumn autum autum! I'm obsessed! I've spent today running around in leaves and being very childish. I'm dressing as autumnal as possible. Using colours of the leaves to plan my outfits and it also helps that my hair is dark auburn so that's pretty autumnal. 
However I am someone who gets cold easily so I layered up. With an oldy but a classic; this Primark camel coat that comes out at this time of year because it is so oversized that I can really snuggle up in it and especially with a scarf. I can cocoon myself.

Not only am I feeling good about being able to go outside in basically a blanket I'm also digging the good old suede skirt out. This is my new one for the year because the one I wore last year no longer fits, but I had to have this essential piece for my wardrobe because its so autumnal, (I'll stop saying autumnal now, I promise.) classic and just is in without being a hyped up trend that will end in two months. I've proven this by wearing it two years in a row, Maybe three actually, I cant quite remember. 
Yeah I love everything in this outfit from my Heart necklace from my best friend to my handy green bag that is big enough to fit my stuff in it, but not so big that its just annoying to carry around. However my favourite part is the plain and boring black t-shirt from Primark. It was £3 and its the perfect plainess to go with my pretty skirts. It doesn't over power the other patterns because I don't love standing out with crazy patterns.
