I've been using switching up my makeup a lot recently, changing my lipstick colours, trying out new base products and enjoying a new eyeshadow palette. Today I thought I'd share with you my current daily everyday makeup routine that I've been wearing towards the end of the Spring season.
I've got the new Urban Decay All Nighter Summer Solstice Spray* to play around with and I knew what I was getting involved with as their original offering is one of my all-time favourite makeup products and most repurchased too. It helps to prolong the wear of your base especially as I spritz it after using a moisturiser, but before my primer.
Talking of primer, it's the Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow* that I've been using on a daily basis. It's thin formula sits underneath your base without disturbing it whilst adding just the right amount of glow. I like pairing this with the IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream*, a buildable coverage foundation that helps to cover any redness or uneven skin tone you have whilst sitting comfortably on the skin. This is my ultimate day-to-day base as it means I don't have to wear a concealer if I don't want to as well as being easy to blend into your complexion.
As I don't powder down my base as much on the daily, I've been using the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand straight after my foundation as this cream formula can be built up as well as blended out to get the bronzed look that you want.
I tend to reach for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette regularly as if I need to decrease any shine on my t-zone, top up my bronzer or add a little highlighter to my cheeks, I always reach for it. Although the blushers inside are amazing, my go-to at the moment is the Nars Orgasm* as the pink hue with gold flecks running through it is very fitting for the season.
The other day the Nars Mini Wanted Eyeshadow Palette* was sent to me and it immediately made it's way into my makeup bag. I've been using it for the last couple of days and I can see myself making my way through this. This is because it's TINY as in really dinky, but this does mean it fit into anywhere with ease and I can still get a fluffy brush in each shade which I was initially worried about. The quality of each shadow lives up to their other formulas and each shade blends together beautifully meaning you don't need to think too much about what to wear - I tend to stick to the left four for everyday wear though and I kind of wish that the full size was in stock! It has to be mentioned that despite the absolutely dreamy hues, the lid is made partly of cardboard so it might be more prone to wear and tear.
I've been using a variety of liquid eyeliners so I can't just narrow it down to one, but the mascara I've been reaching for has been the Too Faced Better Than Sex. This helps to lengthen and add volume to my lashes which I definitely need at the moment! I feel like mascara helps to finish off the whole look and along with my usual eyebrow routine of the ABH Dipbrow Pomade* my whole eye look is complete.
My lip colour changes all the time, but I've been loving the Girl Undiscovered Pink Skies Beauty Balm* to help nourish my lips daily, but I also like it when I want to transform a lip liner into a full on lip shade. It's balm to oil formula leaves the lips looking hydrated and juicy!
