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.
