Everyday Makeup Menu

I guess you could also call this my everyday makeup. Most days I use these products if I don't enough time or i just want to have a slightly toned down look. 

MAC Matchmaster Foundation 2.0 - I've read some negative reviews on this particular Mac foundation online but in my opinion it's really worth the money. I'm really fussy when it comes to picking my foundation as my skin is extremely delicate and one wrongly picked product can cause so many blemishes on my skin. However this didn't break out my skin, it has really good coverage, doesn't feel cakey/heavy on my face (most foundations -even light covarage ones - feel too heavy on my face) and since it's a matte foundation I don't have to use powder after I put it on so it's a plus for days when I have to do my make up in a hurry. 

Bobby Brown Creamy Concealer Natural Tan - This concealer is just perfect! I can't praise this product enough! I've heard so many youtubers and beauty bloggers talk about this concealer and I just had to try it and it is perfect. It has great coverage but doesn't feel heavy, it doesn't crease under your eyes and it stays put all day. It's perfect for under your eyes but you can use it for your blemishes as well. The only problem for me is that even though the shade is perfect for my under eye area when I use it on my blemishes or dark spots it doesn't match my skin and looks slightly darker. But for your under eye area it's the best concealer you can ever use. 

The Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer - To be honest, I was really scared of bronzers at first because whenever I tried to use a bronzer to contour my face it just looked like I fell in a muddy pond. But with the right bronzer and the right brush after a while I "mastered" it a bit. This might not be the best bronzer in the market but it definitely gets the job done. It's great when I use it on my temples and use a tiny bit on the hallows of my cheeks to contour my face. It's nicely pigmented so you have to be careful when you use it and use it delicately otherwise if you use too much or put it on harshly your contour looks muddy. But after contouring my face I dab it on the pallet once again just a bit and use it to bronze my entire face and I definitely get the result I want. 

Clinique Blushing Blush Pink Love - This is one of my favourite pink shades. It's very pigmented so you have to be careful not to over use it because you just look feverish if you overuse it. But if you use it moderately it gives you the healthiest most natural blushing look. It's also slightly shimmery so you don't have to use a separate highlighter with this product because it gives you just the right amount of shine. The only thing I'm not very fond of is the packaging. I love the mirror because it's really handy in outdoors situations but the tiny triangle part where the product sits is too small and narrow in my opinion. 

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick 02 - This is my favourite pink shade at the moment. It's on the darker tones of pink and makes your lips pop. It's not too neon so it doesn't pop too much but it gives great colour to your face. It has a creamy texture but doesn't feel oily on your lips and oh my does it last long! I wear it early in the morning before I go to class and I don't have to reapply it for almost 6-7 hours. It's amazing how long lasting this lipstick is.

Maybelline Volum Express Colossal Smoky Eyes Mascara - Maybelline's mascaras are my favourites at the moment. I've tried so many high end mascaras but their Volum Express mascaras just do the job better for my lashes. This particular one is definitely my ultimate favourite aside from the Falsies mascara because I don't have a problem with the length of my eyelashes but even though they're semi-long they are not thick enough and it looks like I have very few eyelashes. When I use this mascara it gives my lashes amazing volume and it just looks very thick and it gives me that slight cat eye look. I can just use this mascara on my eyes and nothing else and it will still look like I made an effort and used more products on my eyes. 

So these are the main products I use on my face while doing my day makeup. Depending on my mood I will change the lipstick colour and add some more products like an eyeliner or eyeshadow but most of the time this is it.
