Everyday Make- Up Winter 2016

So this month I haven’t been spending that much money on Make-Up, probably because I think I have my routine perfected. When I lived in New York I bought and tried so many new products that now I know what works for me and what doesn’t. In winter our skin can get extremely dry with the central heating being on full blast so it is important that before we put anything on our skin, we moisturise.


Make Up Forever HD Foundation- Shade R210 Pink Albaster here

Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer in Extra Light (neutral) Here

This foundation is a light/medium coverage. It is important to apply this with a brush and NOT solely a beauty blender. This is because the pigment particles in the foundation will  burst as you apply them to your skin and that is how you get the most coverage. A beauty blender will not get the full pigment out of this foundation. I like to apply this concealer under my eyes as I love an extremely light under eye area.

Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder Here

MAC  Bronzing Power in Matte Bronze Here

When using this powder, make sure you use a very small amount as with this product less is more! In terms of bronzers, I always go for the matte shade. I think your highlight can be as shimmery as you want but bronzers should always be matte. A shimmery bronzer will only highlight the skins imperfections.

Becca Champagne Pop (Jaclyn Hill highlight) Here

MAC Soft and Gentle Highlight Here

I love highlighters, and although using two will be over the top for most people I make sure these are blended in well together.

L’Oreal Paris Perfection Brow Artist Plumper in shade blonde Here

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and Dipbrow Pomade, both in blonde Here

The pomade is expensive but if you use the right amount every day it can last you up to a year!

L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Feline Here

Rimmel Glam Eyes Professional Liquid Liner Here

This liquid liner has been my go-to for many years, so much so I find I cannot do a cat flick using any other liner.

Carli Bybel Palette -14 eyeshadows and highlight Here

More highlight I hear you say? Yes this palette is amazing and much cheaper than you would expect, I think I paid 12euro for mine?!

All the shades can be used either as highlights or eyeshadows and the pigment is really amazing for the price.

MAC stripdown lip pencil Here

Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick – Naked Here

Liquid Lipsticks are something that you need to be careful wearing in winter, especially if you suffer from dry lips. One tip is to put on some vaseline before applying the product and also exfoliate your lips with your toothbrush daily.
