Daily Face #7

Things have been a little crazy as of late. Getting back in to the swing of things with uni and family visiting from England has crunched down my free time and I've found myself in a slight makeup rut wearing the same things most days. Don't get me wrong, I've absolutely loved the products I've been wearing but from now on I'm going to a do a little more experimenting makeup wise. But for now here's a quick look at what has been go to daily face for the past few weeks.

I've been starting off with a relatively new foundation in my repertoire, L'Oreal's True Match. Rumoured to be a Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk dupe this stuff is seriously light and glowy but with just enough coverage, a full review is in the works.  Imperfections are covered with my favourite concealer; Estée Lauder's Stay-in-Place Double Wear and the under eye area is brightened with a little of Rimmel's Wake Me Up concealer. To stop things getting too shiny I dust over a little of Rimmel's Match Perfection Loose Powder which I talked about here.

Base done it's time to add a little life back into my cheeks. I've been opting for a slight contour recently, becoming best friends with my Body Shop Honey Bronzer and Real Techniques Contour Brush. Just a small amount buffed in to just below the cheek bone really adds some dimension and helps add a little colour. A blush I've found to really compliment bronzed cheeks is Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blush in the shade Achiote. My favourite peachy pink which really helps accentuate a tan whilst adding a healthy hint of colour.

I've been keeping eyes rather simple and have fallen back in love with Urban Decay's Naked Basics Palette. It's just so versatile and all the colours work together really well. My favourite look at the moment is the shade Foxy as a base right up to the eyebrow (the yellow tones help counteract redness), Naked 2 all over the lid and Faint in the crease. Super natural but looks like you've gone to a little effort. Eyes are finished off with my favourite mascara of the moment; Maybelline's Hyper Curl.

What are your go to makeup picks at the moment?
