This is just a quick round up of all the products that I’m putting on my face at the moment. I tend to find that in the winter, I just want a quick and simple routine that’s all about the glow and no fuss. I’ve cut out a few steps from my routine as I’ve been waking up really early for work (like 5am early) and I just want a no fuss routine that’s going to last all day. I’ve really been enjoying using products from the high street that I know I can easily replace if I run out of them and that are super affordable, and believe it or not I’ve been loving the Aldi makeup range.
For my base I’m using the “it cosmetics your skin but better CC cream” with the Maybelline instant anti age eraser under my eyes for concealer. I blend this all with a real techniques beauty blender or if I’m super tired that day just with my fingertips tapping lightly.
For contour I’m using the benefit hula bronzer and I use the real techniques contour brush for this. Again its super quick and doesn’t take two seconds. I’ve hit pan on this so I won’t be using it for much longer. I’ll go onto the Lacura bronzer powder I bought as a replacement.
For bronzer I’m using the Lacura Shape and Glow palette, suuuuuuper easy. I’m using a fluffy brush from real techniques. You do need to tap off the excess because it’s very pigmented.
For blush I’m using the Lacura blush again super quick and easy, I like wearing blush in the winter because it adds a little glow and makes you look sun kissed (joy of makeup right?!?) Don’t think I’ve seen the sun in ages!!
For brows I’m using mixture of glossier boy brow and Maybelline brow satin, I find this works for me but some people say the added step of the boy brow on top can make it look too much. If I reeeeeally don’t have time that day then I’ll just stick with the boy brow. For me the boy brow is a must every day.
For Mascara I’m using the MAC extended play gigablack lash on both my top lash and my bottom lash for a really simple look. Nothing too dramatic just a very quick and simple lash look.
These are all the products I use before a long day at work and I can honestly say that the base, brows, contour and mascara last all day, with no smudge from the mascara AT ALL; I’m talking a 16/17 hour day! Let me know if you use any of these products and what you think of them, would love to know.
