While getting dressed to go out, I had some time on my hands and decided I'd share my everyday make up with you guys. I'm not one to experiment with my make up much, but these are the products I go for when I have those 10 minutes to spare and put in an effort to create that 'no-makeup' make up look. On days when time seems to be slipping out of my hands, I just conceal under my eyes and on any spots, add on a nude/pink lipstick and use my favourite translucent compact.

Foundation: 
I've been using the Chanel Vitalumier Aqua foundation for about three years now and it feels so great on my skin. This was the first foundation I ever bought and after trying on a few others, I realised why. It's almost like a BB cream and definitely on the lightweight side. I recently bought a new bottle and got the shade 30 beige which I'm now realising might have been a tad dark for me. Once this one runs out I'll definitely be going back to my usual shade!

Concealer:
I've had a long lasting struggle with my deep-set eyes and dark circles and I can't say I'm completely satisfied with the products I have now, which always leads me to try new ones. Currently I've been mixing the L'oreal True Match concealer with Maybelline's Lumitouch. I always remember to moisturise my under-eye area before I apply my concealer because I've noticed a huge difference in the way the concealer sets. Another step I never skip anymore is to set my concealer with a powder.

Eyebrows: 
I skip the eyeliner and mascara (nobody has time for that sticky goop!) and fill in my brows instead to give it a sleeker, more refined shape. I use the Anastasia Dip Brow in Dark Brown which comes with a spooly that I first brush my brows with.  I like to go dark towards the end of my brows where the arch is and slowly put less pressure coming in closer to my nose. 

Lipstick:
I have really thin lips and for the past year I've been over-lining my lips and love how confident it has made me feel about them! This may not be for everyone but if you have thin lips try outlining with a lip liner similar to your lip colour and go over it with a similar lipstick shade. I've fallen in love with Miss Claire's matte lip cream which lasts hours and doesn't dry your lips. On top of that they're only 150/- a piece! In the photos above I've used the shade 17A.

Bronzer/Blush:
I'm not one to go crazy on the contour front but I've been using an Elizabeth Arden palette that has a bronzer, blush and highlighter all in one. They do have a bit of shimmer in it which I'm not a fan of, so let me know if you know any matte bronzers I could try.

Powder:
I finally set it all in with my holy-grail product which is Chanel's  Les Beiges Healthy Glow sheer powder. It smells like a dream and makes my skin so soft without feeling like I have much product on. 

That's all for now, let me know if you'd like to see more beauty-related posts on the blog and also what products you love to use on a daily basis.
