Everyday Makeup Staples.


On a day to day basis, there are a few makeup products that I absolutely cannot live without. Whether I'm heading to work, out to run errands, out for a date night or to simply have a chilled day - these products are my saving grace for every kind of occasion. Used in combination with one another these products can make for a beautifully simple, minimalistic, everyday look or can be used as the building blocks for something a little more dressed up. Either way, these products are without a doubt my everyday makeup staples.

Albeit a rare occasion, If I'm having a good skin day, I can be lucky enough to ditch foundation completely. In saying that, I still feel as though I need a little bit of coverage to get me through. That's where the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer comes in. It gives a beautifully silky, lightweight coverage and adds a hint of hydration so you're not left with cakey patches surrounding your blemishes. It blends seamlessly into the skin so you can feel confident having minimal coverage on those good skin days. This concealer is also highly regarded for it's brightening effects - so when used under the eyes on top of your foundation, it makes for a gorgeous creamy highlight. 

If there is one thing that I categorically cannot leave the house without doing, it's filling in my brows. Without having my brows filled in, a feel a little bit naked. That's why the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade is my saving grace. Honestly, I could not speak of a product more highly than I could about this one. Since the moment I started using the product, it became an instant game-changer and holy grail. Whether it's used gently for a softened, natural brow or used for a bolder, more dramatic look - it works flawlessly every time.

A very recent staple comes in the form of Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze & Glow Palette. I talked about this product in depth in a recent post, and I have been using it religiously ever since. The sculpting shade is the most perfect contour shade, particualrly for my own pale skin tone. It's build-able, either allowing you to opt for a more subtle sun-kissed glow or achieve a more dramatic look. At the same time, the highlighting shade gives such a beautiful enhancement to your natural glow. This palette adds gorgeous colour and definition to your complexion, and my everyday look wouldn't be the same without it.

Although it is a given, my tired eyes are always in need of a pick-me-up in the form of a mascara. No daily makeup routine would be complete without it. My natural lashes are quite short and mascaras don't tend to appeal to me all that much - however I have found a saving grace in the form of Maybelline's Lash Sensational Mascara. For such an affordable price tag, it does the job perfectly in a couple of quick sweeps, lifting my lashes and giving a more wakened appearance to my eyes.

Without a trusty lipstick in my everyday routine, I risk my complexion looking completely washed out. My current go-to is MAC's Brave, a perfect Springtime shade. I'll typically find myself reaching for nude shades over anything bold as it's the most appropriate choice for my everyday look when heading to the office. I couldn't be without a good nude lipstick, as there's nothing that pulls a look together quite like it.
