My Morning Make Up


As we all know, getting up early is very dull and I am often extremely tired in the early hours of the morning! For my makeup on most mornings, I keep it simple with a dewy base, pinch of colour in my cheeks and a pretty pink lip. Here is what I do to get this makeup look...

I haven't spoken about this product on my blog yet, but you have plenty of mentions of it coming your way! This little tube of illumination is the Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturiser. When I'm looking for something light on my skin, this is what I will choose, the lightweight texture feels like I'm wearing no makeup but gives me right amount of coverage and has a beautiful luminous finish. For areas where I need a little more coverage, I apply my Maybelline Age Rewind concealer which I am always talking about! A new product which has been added to my makeup regime is the Estฤ“e Lauder BB Brush on Glow, I use to brighten under my eye and illuminate any areas which need it. To give me some colour in those cheeks I'm using my Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick, as this both bronzes and highlights my cheeks.

I've recently become a bit of an eye shadow addict and love to add some shimmer to those lids every day! I find cream shadows the easiest to apply and blend in and the one I'm wearing at the moment is Benefit Birthday Suit. To tame my brows I brush them through with my Eyeko Brow Gel to keep them in place. To get those lashes looking long I use my YSL Baby Doll Mascara.

If I'm busy in the day at uni or going out then I don't have time to keep touching up my lipstick so I'm just going to keep it simple with my Revlon Colour Burst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait to add a peachy pink to my lip.
