everyday make-up #1

today i bring you my first everyday make-up post. when i say everyday, i don't mean sitting around the house doing nothing, this is what i'd apply if i was actually going to leave the house for a couple of hours at least!

all the products used.

Step One // Base
oo1 // Benefit 'That Gal' Brightening Primer // dispense a small amount onto the tip of the finger and transfer to face - one dot on each cheek, and a strip across the forehead. rub into the skin, making sure every inch is covered!
oo2 //  Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Foundation in BD40 and Body Collection Foundation Brush // dispense a small amount of your moisturiser of choice onto the face of your hand, then add the required amount of foundation. blend together on your hand before applying to the face - i apply in the same way i apply my foundation, and then touch-up any areas that look as though they need a little more coverage.

Step Two // Highlighting and Enhancing
oo3 // Benefit High Beam // apply a line across your brown bone, eyelid, and lower lash line and blend into the skin using the tip of your finger using dabbing or circular motions.
oo4 // Benefit Posie Tint // using the brush, add the desired amount to the apple of your cheek, then blend in thoroughly using your finger tips, again with a dabbing or circular motion.

Step Three // Ensuring Full Coverage 
oo5 // 2true Matte Pressed Powder and Superdrug Powder Brush // apply all over the face, ensuring it's blended in around your jawline. less is more!
oo6 // Collection 2000 Blush and Urban Beauty United Brush // coat the brush (ensuring the whole width of the brush is covered) with the desired amount of blush and apply along the cheekbone.

Step Four // Eyes
oo7 // M.A.C Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil // i apply to the inner of my upper and lower lash line, which i know isn't to everyone's taste, but this can also be applied above the top lash line.
oo8 // Primark Eyelash Curlers and 17 Falsifeye Falsh Lash Effect Mascara in Black // curl bare lashed, and apply a generous coat of mascara - make sure you catch the very inner and outer lashes. wait for mascara to dry and curl the lashes again so they retain their shape.

Step Five // Lips
oo9 // Benefit Hoola Lipgloss // to complete the look, slick on a layer of Hoola gloss for a natural sheen on the lips.

if you have any questions about this look, don't hesitate to ask!
