Everyday makeup routine

If you're a regular reader then you will know how much I advocate for the barely there-natural-dewy look (the overused words here!). Recently I have been quiet pleased with my attempts to achieve this look, so thought I would share with you what I have been grabbing for...

The Estée Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB cream has been pretty high up on my list. Whilst I cannot truly say that I get an aaaaallllll day glow, it definitely helps to create a brighter complexion. Following with the Nars Creamy Concealor to hide my bags I'm pretty satisfied with an even, natural skin tone. 

A recent purchase of the Hourglass Brow Definer has left me one happy gal. Its much easier to use than my Benefit Brow Zings, and I love the spooley end to help get my brows in shape. I've then reached for the Bobbi Brown Long Lasting cream shadow to create a subtle, gold shimmer over my lids with the, well used, Rimmel Scandaleyes liner in bronze on my lash line. With an application of the Loreal Telescopic Mascara to create some natural seperation and definition I'm pretty satisfied with a simple eye look.

Of course I would be lost at the moment without my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion. A lovely, light pinky-peach colour with a golden tone for highlight. When rumaging around in my lipstick draw a month ago I found an old favourite, the Estee Lauder Pure Colour Long Lasting Lipstick  (mouthful!) in crystal nude. This is a 'your lips but better shade'; it has such a creamy texture and  a lovely shine upon an application. I love this shade for creating a small natural essence to a nearly naked look.
