It's been a long time since I've done a blog post dedicated solely to the make up I wear on my face daily... in fact I'm not even sure I HAVE done one, but if I have, it's probably deep in the 2016 archives somewhere. But, alas, it's something I get asked to chat about quite a bit, so I thought I'd finally sit down today and fill you in on what I've been slapping on this ol' mug lately!




I always begin by moisturising. I suffer from quite dry skin on my face, so this is truly a step that I cannot miss. I've recently fallen head-over-heels for the Bobbi Brown Hydrating Fresh Water Cream (*gifted) and plan on purchasing it again once I've hit pan. It's so light on the skin and the perfect amount of hydration for my skin type - it never leaves me with that greasy kind of feeling. Ever.

I don't tend to wear foundation, the only times I really do are when I'm either trialing a new one to tell you guys about, or I've had an extreme break-out that concealer alone cannot mask. However, day-to-day, concealer alone is my weapon of choice.

It won't be a surprise to you that I absolutely swear by the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - a holy grail product amongst many. I use this as kind of a 'base' of sorts. I conceal any redness and blemishes (normally a good chunk of my chin and forehead at the moment), let that settle onto my skin before diving in with some blusher or bronzer.

I've absolutely loved using Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer Lite  (*gifted) as my blush/bronzer for the last few months. I'm so close to finishing it off and will be a bit heartbroken when I do. I simply brush this over my cheeks, dab a little onto my nose and voila! It just helps to warm up my make-up look, something which I really like during the hotter months of the year.

I then like to add a bit of highlight. I do chop and change between what product I use for this, but for a while I've actually been using the Bare Minerals Gen Nude in 'Citrine' (*gifted). This is actually an eye product, but for some reason I felt the urge to use it as a highlight, and I love it!

The next step is mascara. Now, sometimes I miss this step if I'm feeling like embracing the blonde lashes, or simply if my eyes are exhausted from staring at screens all day, but as of late, I've been really loving giving my lashes a bit of an oomph.

My mascaras of choice (and some which I cannot rave about enough) are the Gucci L'Obscur mascara and Burberry Cat Lashes (*gifted). These are both so good at giving you that full-lash effect, without feeling heavy on the eye, and I haven't found either of them to smudge under the lash line (except for when I'm been melting in the sun all day haha).

Lastly, we're talking about lips. Now there's isn't a specific shade or product that I tend to wear religiously on the lips. Lipstick has always been my favourite part of the make-up process, so I like to switch it up and try new ones each day. Regardless of that though, I still want to give a shoutout to some of my favourites, so I'll list those below:



Okay, so there we have it, that's what I'm wearing on my face daily these days! Let me know if you have any make up recommendations, I'd love to know!
