I thought this was a bit of a necessary post to go up on my blog at one time or another. Over the past year or even just the past six months really, I've certainly gotten into makeup and beauty a lot more. After getting out of high school, I've finally learnt that I look almost a hundred percent better with eyebrows, that wearing lipstick is actually acceptable and that relying on a powder foundation that is two shades too dark for you probably isn't a great idea.
sorry about the shadows, still getting a hang of the whole photography thing
First thing I do (if i actually remember) is to put on a primer. I'm actually really like the Benefit The POREfessional primer. It's a great consistency and though I was a bit doubtful at the beginning about primers in general, I have noticed that it really smooths over my pores and my makeup stays on for much longer.
Next I use the Rimmel Matte BB Cream which is a great substitute for a liquid foundation which I don't really like to wear on a daily basis. It provides a light coverage and it also has SPF 15 which is extremely helpful in Australia especially through summer.
Then I use the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer which is a little too light for me so it doesn't work too well for blemishes but its great for under the eyes and getting rid of the bags that I will undoubtedly have. I also put some around the sides of my nose to cover any redness.
I use the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural just to set my face and also to equal out my skin tone as the BB Cream is a little bit too light for me and the powder is a perfect match. I really love this product as I basically love all MAC products but it provides a great coverage, I use this on my 'no makeup days' when I need to go out, because it really is a perfect match for my skin tone.
Next I go in and fix the ridiculously thin strands of hair above my eyes apparently called my eyebrows. But yes I use the Benefit Gimme Brow to thicken my eyebrows and then go through with a little spoolie brush to get rid of any clumps of product that look out of place.
For just an every day look I use this Rimmel Metallic Eyeshadow Quad just using first the champagne shade on the left packing it over the lid and the bronze shade on the right in the crease just for a really simple bronze eye.
 I line my waterline really lightly with the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl in Black. this is a really really pigmented pencil liner, and it is really easy to smudge. Its basically the easiest eyeliner to use at any time to do either your waterline or even to do a wing it gives more of a grungy effect.
For mascara I use the Benefit They're Real Mascara which is a great both lengthening and volumising Mascara, I haven't been using it for too long but so far I'm really loving it. It does create a bit of a spidery effect which I'm not a great fan of, but other than that I really love it.
 Lastly I use the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector this is such a great natural lip colour and it really does bring your whole face together creating a summery bright look. I'm such a fan of this formula, its so moisturising on the lips.
 So there you are, the finished look.
