Everyday Makeup | Smashbox, Benefit & Revolution

I wear makeup day to day, it doesn't really matter what I'm doing it's part of my morning routine. Doing my hair and makeup sets me up for the day whether I'm heading to work, doing the shopping and running errands or spending the day in the house. When I say makeup everyday I don't mean full coverage, smokey eye and highlight. My Everyday Makeup is a mixture of products that make me look a little bit more awake, healthier and put together - an instant boost in a bag.

I'm most self conscious about under my eyes so it's no surprise that concealer is my number one, must have makeup product. In fact, so much so that I've been using two different concealers and both are quite high coverage. Since buying the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer at the end of January it instantly became my go-to concealer. I use it first, under my eyes and anywhere on my face that is particularly red or any spots. I use Benefit Boi-ing concealer later on top of my foundation just under my eyes. My foundation is a Smashbox Studio Skin liquid foundation and I only use 1 pump of this to even out the rest of my skin. I like to buff that into my skin with quite a big brush and tend to reach for something Real Techniques like the Expert Face brush or Blush Brush.
Onto my eyes, I curl my eyelashes with the Shu Uemura eyelash curler. My eyelashes are pretty straight, in fact they could be compared to a camels, so they need a bit of help to curl and these curlers, though expensive, do a good job. My eyelashes are also very blonde so I love an intense black mascara to completely transform them. At the moment Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara has been my favourite, go-to mascara. It's a lengthening and volumising mascara that I find doesn't clump or flake off. After my mascara I add a little bit of colour to my eyebrows with Benefit Gimme Brow. This is the old packaging and I could probably do with repurchasing it but the 01 light shade does the job. I don't spend a lot of time on my eyebrows so Gimme Brow gel suits me.

I've got dry skin so I don't use a setting powder to finish off my look instead I use Benefit Hoola Lite bronzer to add a bit of colour to my cheekbones, forehead and neckline. This brightens and warms up my face. Especially through the winter months it can make me look healthier and add a bit of dimension. No messing around, I just use the brush inside Hoola. 5-10minutes and I'm ready to take on the day.
