MY EVERYDAY MAKEUP ROUTINE


Hey dolls,

This weekend I was finally able to take pictures for a blog post in the daylight! The past couple of months, I have changed up my everyday makeup a little bit. I think I wear a lot more now than I used to but that's because I have so much fun with it!

Before I do my makeup, I always clean my face with Soap & Glory's 'Face Soap and Clarity'. I then freshen up my skin with micellar water, and then moisturise. At the moment I am using Simple's Hydrating Light Moisturiser.

Eyes
I always do my eye makeup first. This is just because I know I'll mess up and have to redo everything and it's super annoying! I always put concealer down first on my eyelids as a base for eyeshadow. I am absolutely loving the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe palette at the moment. On a day to day basis, I usually go for a warm toned look - using oranges, reds, brown and a little bit of gold to add sparkle. A little bit extra for a day in the office? Maybe!

I always do a winged liner - I look so weird without it now! At the moment I'm using a Lottie London one (all the branding has rubbed off!) but definitely looking for a new one so any recommendations would be amazing! When it comes to my eyebrows, I'm still figuring out what the hell I'm doing! At the moment, I'm using an eyebrow pencil from Elf and yeah, it does the job, but whatever. Brows are something I am going to perfect this year!

I don't tend to wear lashes unless I'm going on a night out or something. My favourite mascaras at the moment are both by Loreal - the Miss Baby Doll mascara and the Lash Paradise mascara.

Face
I don't have bad skin at all, but it's not amazing. I don't really suffer with spots (I obviously get the odd one!). I tend to have a lot more issues with colouring and dullness. My makeup has changed a lot recently. I used to be into super matte foundations, but lately I've discovered I love a dewy look a lot more! My favourite foundation is the Milani 2-in-1 Conceal & Perfect and I'm completely out at the moment so very upset! It's the loveliest foundation - it's a really great coverage but is also super glowy. Until I order another one, I have been using the Loreal Infallible Pro Glow foundation which is actually not out in the UK yet. Again it's really dewy but has a little less coverage. I apply my foundation with a buffing brush or a beauty sponge. I then use everyone's favourite, the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer under my eyes and on any blemishes.

I contour a little bit using a Sleek Contour Kit. I've tried so many contour shades and bronzers but seem to just keep going back to this one! I then use a slightly shimmery bronzer (I use one in the Sugar palette) to warm up my cheeks, temples and jaw bones. Using a bronzer with a little bit of shimmer gives a slight glow like you're fresh out of the sunshine, which I love!

I don't really use blush, unless it's a special occasion. I am however HIGHLIGHT OBSESSED! At the moment I'm using the Anastasia Beverley Hills Sugar Glow Kit and cannot get enough of it - it's stunning! Day to day I only use a tiny bit to create a really subtle look.

Lips
I have so many lipsticks and lipglosses, it's kind of a joke! I always go back to the same few though! I definitely go for pinky nudes a lot more than anything else. At the moment, I really love the Rimmel London Kate Moss lipstick 08, MAC lipstick in Spirit and Elf's Matte Lip Colour in Tea Rose. My favourite lip gloss by far has to be the NYX Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake (it's a perfect pink!), but I also really love the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker glosses - I love the tingly feel of them!

Let me know if you have any suggestions of products to try - I do have a whole list of things to try too but would love your recommendations!!

Much love,

Kerry xx

  2. not extra at all to me! i used to work as a barista and i always came into work with super colorful eye makeup, haha. lipglosses are always a great product, i love that the sheerer ones barely require touchups since they fade so nicely.

  3. I also love to wear a full makeup, even when I go to buy groceries :D Metallic finishes and thick lashes are one of the biggest makeup trend this year, so don't worry about looking too 'extra'.

    Lots of love ♥ Janury Girl

  4. Never too extra! I love experimenting with eyeshadows, particularly copper and and rust tones I find work well with blue eyes X
