My 'Go To' Make Up Look

I didn't want to call this my 'everyday make up' because well it's not. I like to switch things up but there are days where I just can't be bothered, or if I am going away this is the make up I'll pack. It's quick, simple and I don't really have to think about it. 

It's not an overly complicated look and it only takes me about 10 minutes to do and I think (correct me if I'm wrong) it leaves me looking 'done' but not OTT 

My foundation can change depending on how my skin is that day but lately I have been loving Mac Studio Sculpt. It's quite full coverage but so light on the skin that you barely know it's there. For concealer I used the YSL Touché Éclat under my eyes to brighten, as I had to say goodbye to my beloved Bobbi Brown corrector and then the ever famous Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer for a little more coverage under the eyes and on any blemishes. 

For Highlighter I have been loving my Benefit High Beam again, I just dot a little on the tops of my cheek bones and on my cupids bow and pat in with my finger. My fail safe blush is Mac's Pink Swoon.  I cannot get enough of this blush! I must wear this at least 3 times a week (more than any other blush I own). Also I forgot to add it to the photo (silly me!) but for powder I have recently been using Rimmel's Stay Matte all over my face just patted in with the ELF powder brush

For my eyes- I have been testing out the Rimmel Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer, which I'm not totally sold on yet. For this look I used Mac's Naked Lunch all over the lid and then Satin Taupe in the crease and blended out. For my brows I used Mac's Charcoal Brown- which is a little dark but I quite like dark brows and I don't think it's too OTT (again please correct me if I am wrong!) and then to finish off couple layers of Benefit They're  Real- which I frigging LOVE.

Lastly is lips; This is something that I change depending on what I am wearing but my kind of 'go-to' colour at the moment is Mac's Brick-oh-la a gorgeous brown/orange red. It really is the perfect colour that goes with most things so I know I can just chuck it on!

  6. Hi beaut. You look gorgeous! I love the subtle pink flush of blush on your cheeks along with the MAC studio sculpt. It's such an amazing foundation, I love it! Lasts surprisingly well too, considering the tube sized container.

    It's always good when you can throw a make up look together in 10 minutes!
    Thank you for posting these fab products, I'll definitely be trying that blush!
    Lots of love ❤
