make up of the day

When I'm leaving the house in the morning, I like to have a simple, classic, dependable make-up look to wear throughout the day. So here is a little demo of one of my daily looks.

For my skin base, on a good skin day, I use the Dior Nude BB Creme in the lightest shade, 001. It is slightly too dark and pink tinted for my skin but if I blend it well I think it looks great. This BB cream covers imperfections and feels so light on the skin, so its perfect for day wear. For concealer, I use the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer in the shade 51. Its a great concealer for both blemishes and under eye circles making it a nice, quick, multi-use product.

The Urban Decay Naked 2 palette has some great easy to wear shades. My colour of choice is Suspect for all over the lid as its a taupe, grey colour that doesn't need a second shade in the crease. To line my top and bottom lashes I used Busted, a dark, purple/brown that offers some definition without being too harsh. I throw on a few coats of my new mascara of choice, Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express on the top lashes to finish off the eyes.

During the day I prefer to keep my cheeks simple, so I used Rimmel Powder Blush in Bronze, which is great to add a pop of colour and contour all at once and my favourite highlight, Illamasqua Aurora adds a nice glow to my skin. Finally for my lips my go to nude, Rimmel Lasting Perfection Lipstick in Nude Pink brings the look together just in time for me to grab my bag and running out the door!
