Makeup Mess: Everyday Look

Hello everyone! Hope you're all okay, I am so so sick of revision so as a little break I thought I would write a blog post which wasn't pre-scheduled or a guest blogger just as a little relaxation for myself (I find blogging really calming) With an hour to spare I have chucked all my 'go' to makeup at the moment on my Beyonce programme and thought I would just talk to through these products I have been wearing lately.

MUA Eyeshadow Palette Undressed

Ellie from Makeup and Other Junk which you can check out here, got me this amazing palette in a beauty box swap we did which you can see here! I adore this palette so much, its an amazing dupe of the Naked Palette. I used shade 2, 4 and 5 to create a really nice rosy, pink smoky eye look. The 12 shades are amazing and such great quality for the price.

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Excess Mascara

I brought this recently as I was in desperate need of a new mascara as I get so bored of using the same products all the time and I know that my cousin uses this one and her eyelashes always look amazing so I thought I would give it a go. The fact that it is so lightweight and the brush is bendable means that its super easy to apply on and I also love how they make your eyelashes look so dramatic and full of volume.

Sleek Blush in Life’s a Peach

Sleek blushes are my favourite blushes, they are so amazing in texture and give a really nice colour. It's so cute and compact which is great to carry in your handbag! The pigmentation is excellent and can be buildable if you want a dramatic and bold look but I usually do one swipe just for a natural glow. I'm just in love with the peachy/orange colour as its so perfect for Spring/Summer.

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Candy Apple

The main thing I love about this is the texture, is it super soft and I will just spend ages rubbing my lips together. It is also extremely pigmented which gives a real nice glossy finish which I just love!

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder

This is a super cute pinky champagne highlighting powder which gives your face a pretty and healthy looking glow. MUA is super affordable and everyone I know loves this product, it is such a beautiful sheer highlight that isn't too much.

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Light

A BB cream stands for blemish balm used to help calm and soothe acne and blemishes. The texture for this is a thick gel like cream that is lightweight and easy to blend as it glides onto your skin giving that instant dewy glow and a really good coverage. I can barely see any of my redness of blemishes after using this.

Bourjois Paris Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer  

This is a most recent purchase of mine but I am so so in love with this. Bek (check out here blog here!) recommended it and always talks about so I gave in and brought it and all I can say is that it is amazing!! It gives your face a radiant glow and allows your foundation/bb cream/whatever you are using to glide on your skin amazingly.

           Maybelline Age Instant Rewind Eraser Foundation

Just for an extra bit of coverage (using it as a concealer) I just apply this under my eyes and put it over any large blemishes for a better and flawless look.

Feels so nice to blog! Comment below your 'go to' products! And if you have a Makeup Look that you would like me to show you, or recommend some products then comment that too as I will have a lot of free time soon :)
