everyday makeup



This is the basic, everyday makeup that I wear. I'm not going to go into it in detail as I'm sure it's self explanatory! I've got the application time of this combo down to 10 minutes in the morning, yeahh extra sleeping time! Sometimes I have to sacrifice the liquid eyeliner for a bit of pencil, as that's what takes up most of the time! My boyfriend just came in and went 'aww, look at you looking like an emo'... brilliant, exactly the look I was going for!

I'm so freckly at the moment that my foundation doesn't even pretend to hide my freckles, they just shine right through. I don't really mind though :) As you can see, my foundation is on the way out so I'm looking for a new one. I'm torn between trying the new YSL touche eclat foundation or Estee Lauder double wear - does anyone have any reviews for either of these? Let me know your thoughts if you've tried either :)

The two elements of my daily makeup that do tend to change slightly are my blushers and my lipsticks. I recently did a post on my top 3 blushers here, I usually wear my MAC one but it does vary at times. Again, my MAC lipstick is the most commonly used, but I do tend to switch depending on my mood/outfit. 

How long does your morning makeup routine take? What's the one item of makeup you couldn't live without? x

  3. OH MY GOD!!! i use exactly the same liquid eyeliner! I always though i was the only one :) now i know im not! it really is the best liquid ever! but i find it a lot quicker and easier to use liquid than pencil (but maybe because my makeup routine hasnt changed for tthe last 6 years!)
