Everyday Make-up Routine

1. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation 2. Pocket Mirror, Wilkinsons 3. Collection Extreme 24hr Felt Tip Liner 4. Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer 5. MUA Elysium Palette 6. NYX Wonder Stick 
7. Illamasqua Radience Veil 8. NYX 'Stockholm'

Firstly, I prime my face with the Illamasqua Hydra Veil. Does anyone else feel like an extra from Shaun of the Dead? My skin is so pale & dull! This gives me a nice glow under my foundation. 

Next I use my Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer to cover any blemishes and dark circles. Using my Real Techniques 'beauty blender' which I dampen with a setting spray I apply a little Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation - I say little as this gives amazing coverage, which I need as I feel other foundations just do not stay put on my face! 

Next I lightly contour my face using the NYX Wonder Stick & my sponge. Using a blusher brush I apply a little bronzer & blusher over my contour. I then set this with a translucent powder to dull any shine.

I recently picked up this MUA pallette (£6 - bargain!) which I think is perfect for every day wear at work. I am a sucker for nudes/browns & a little rosey sparle! Lastly, a slick of mascara & black eyeliner to finish. hey ho, hey ho it's off to work we go...!
