Current Make Up Routine

Hi, I thought I would share with you the make up that I’m currently using on a daily basis. These are my staple products that I always use and that never fail me! I also have very sensitive skin and these products do not cause irritation on me.

Skin care

I have recently done a post on my daily skincare routine for sensitive skin which tells you the products that I use to prepare my skin everyday so I start and end each day with this method. I then wait around 30 minutes before applying my make up to allow the moisturizer to sink in. I also use this method to take off my make up each night.

Foundation

I keep my foundation really simple. I do not use any primers as all I have tried have made me break out. I start by adding concealer to any dark areas. The concealer I have is Clinique airbrush concealer in 01 fair. I put this under my eyes and on any area where there is uneven skintone or spots. I then apply Clinique stay-matte oil-free makeup in 02 alabaster all over my face. Although this is a matt foundation I don’t find it cakes at all and it’s still fairly light and sheer coverage. I then touch up any dark areas with my concealer again.

Eyes

At the moment I am just putting a light coat of revlon colourstay eye shadow in ocean blue and then Clinique quickliner for eyes in 02 smokey brown. I then do my brows with Clinique super fine liner for brows in 02 soft brown. I use Chanel le volume de Chanelย  mascara in black and apply 2 coats. I’m thinking of changing mascara when this runs out as I find that it does flake after a few hours which is quite annoying!

Cheeks and lips

On my cheeks I use MAC powder blush colour in well dressed, which is a subtle pink colour. I have used this colour for years and love it.ย  On my lips Clinique different lipstick in shade 04 a different grape. I really love this shade and can see it staying in my make up bag all winter too as its a lovely berry shade.

As you can see from my picture. It gives a really natural looking daytime look. Its sheer coverage so doesn’t feel or look too heavy on the skin. I hope you liked reading about my current make up routine.
