So recently I've really been really liking my makeup routine. Obviously I don't wear the exact same makeup every single day. For example: in this post my eye shadow is more of an orange shade, whereas another day I might want a more brown shade in my crease. I'm sure you get the idea.

So on an everyday basis I don't wear foundation. Instead I opt for a high coverage concealer - the Collection Lasting Perfection. However, if I do wear foundation my current favourite is the Max Factor Lasting Performance.

I cannot do my makeup without wearing bronzer no matter what look I'm going for and what time of year it is. Of course, I use my holy grail bronzer: Hoola!

Although I usually prefer a more peachy toned blush I've currently been loving the blush in the Sleek palette. This blush is in the 'light' contour kit.

I am also absolutely in love with the ABH Contour Kit at the moment! I powder using the shade Vanilla and use the shade Banana under my eyes.I then use the middle contour shade (Fawn) to contour. I went into a little depth about how I like to use the palette in a review I did of it so feel free to check it out!

At the moment I love highlighting with a Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in the shade Lightscapade. I really want to try another shade too but I'm not sure which one yet.

For eye shadow I've been loving the Morphe palette called the '35 Color Warm Palette'. I apply the first shade in the palette all over my eyelid & then blend the burnt orange colour in my crease. Obviously, when blended in the orange colour is no where near as vibrant so it's perfect for everyday wear.

I also can't go a day without wearing eyeliner and every single day I use the same one, the Maybelline gel eyeliner in black.

I finish my eyes by curling my lashes and applying an Avon Super Shock mascara. Although I don't wear them everyday I am obsessed with false lashes! I tend to just wear ones I got off eBay as they're super cheap - about £3 for 10 pairs. Since I went to school before taking the photo above I decided to just cut the lashes into half lashes as they're a little more natural looking while still being far better than my natural lashes.

To fill in my brows I first brush them out before applying my ABH Dip Brow Pomade (in brown) to the ends of my eyebrows. I prefer to leave the front bits with little product on them as it's more natural and in my opinion just looks better.

In terms of my lips I don't like to extenuate them as I don't like my lips very much. Instead of wearing lipstick I just exfoliate them and apply a Nivea lip balm.

I hope you enjoyed this post. It's surprisingly difficult to explain how you do your makeup without actually being able to show you. So although I didn't go into detail about how I use the products I'm sure, if you're a beauty junky like me, then you'll know anyway. So instead, I hope it's just nice that you can see the products I like to use.
