My Everyday Makeup

My Everyday Makeup


Let's just say I'm no makeup expert, nor makeup obsessed. I've always have had a very simple makeup routine. Over the years after much experimenting and enlarging my makeup knowledge, I've come to a makeup routine that I'm very comfortable with and liking.  Note, this is my my everyday makeup, having said that, that doesn't mean I wear makeup everyday, I'm comfortable stepping out with a fresh face with little to no makeup on as well. But this makeup routine is something I find easy, simple, and quick. 

1. Concealer // Mac Mineralize Concealer NC35

I do not wear foundation. I have been lucky to be blessed with great skin. So for my everyday simple makeup I don't require foundation. I do however use concealer around my eyes. Having a south asian background means I'm more prone to dark circles, allergies don't help much either! Therefore I use concealer to cover up the dark circles and lighten up the area around my eyes. Since I don't wear foundation this concealer is good for it's medium coverage and easy blending.

2. Marcelle Eye Shadow

After my first step of putting on concealer, I wear some simple light eye shadow if I'm in the mood to, otherwise I do my eyeliner. As I mentioned I have allergies, and am hypersensitive to many things. Therefore I find using Marcelles line of eye shadows best for me. 

3. Eyeliner // Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer Eyeliner

I enjoy using this liner because it's the rolling pencil kind. I have not yet mastered liquid or pen eyeliner. I will only attempt liquid liners when I have the time or I'm getting getting dolled up for an outing of some sort or if I'm feeling up to it / in the mood! Otherwise I love this liner. It's easy to use. I have small-medium eyes I would say, so I exaggerate the eyeliner at the ends to make my eyes appear larger. I think line under my last line at the bottom, again to give my eyes a larger look. I find this liner to last a long time!

4. Mascara // Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, Very Black

Again, mascara is something I don't really wear too much. I have quite long eyelashes which curl up by themselves. So most days I don't find the need to wear mascara. But if I have heavier liner on, I then do wear some mascara so they stick out a little bit more. This is mascara is great for everyday simple makeup looks.

5. Blush // Mac Mineralize Blush Warm Soul 

This colour is perfect for a everyday look simple makeup look. It's subtle, but yet makes all the difference. Blush is again something I wear here and there, really depends on my mood, what I'm wearing and where I'm going.

6. Lipstick // Luminous Creme Lipstick - Bite Beauty - Shiraz

So when it comes to lipstick I have had a long struggle. My lips react to every lipstick out there. They flare up and swell up.  I have FINALLY found a lipstick that my lips can handle, thanks to Bite Beauty! It's so creamy it feels like butter on your lips and my lips don't react! The colour Shiraz is a perfect everyday colour. It's a soft plum colour that adds just a little colour to my lips!
