My Everyday Makeup Essentials | Basics

Hey guys, so whilst doing my makeup, I realized that I only stick to very few of the SAME products daily..

I thought this is a good post to write for people who are going back to school, or people that are new to makeup, or even people who love to be nosy about other peoples makeup! ( I know I am)
Now from the image above, I only photographed a couple of the products I use daily, I actually use a few more then shown. Shhh
So to make this post really easy and quick to read, I'm going to bullet point my basics and what I use :)

  • Moisturize - Origins Gin Zing
  • Concealer - Collection 2000
  • Foundation - Chanel Vitaluminere Aqua
  • Powder - MAC Mineralized Skin Finish
  • Bronzer - Rimmel Sun Shimmer
  • Gel Eyliner - Lloreal
  • Eyeshadow Pencil - 2 in 1 gel  Maxfactor color: unknown but it's a beautiful bronze 
  • Mascara - Rimmel ScandalEyes

So yea guys they are my everyday essentials! You may notice that I didn't add anything for eyebrows, that's because in my opinion unless your eyebrows are bad and uncontrollable, you don't need to do them everyday!

Also, take a peak at a "sorting" draw of mine; just a little bit messy! ....

I have some sort of storage system for my makeup at the moment which is this plastic case thing from a craft store, I am thinking about buying the muji storage as I think it looks really ugly at the moment ;/

I will do an update when I eventually purchase a new way to sort out my makeup storage as I have a huge drawful of makeup that does not fit into this storage system!

Thanks for reading :)

  11. This is a great everyday essentials post! I love the Chanel foundation - but I can only use it on days when I already have good skin days, as it makes my skin look awful if I'm having a bad skin day! Did you find the same thing, or is it just me? Haha. Great blog :)
