It wasn’t until I took this picture that I realised how much makeup I actually wear. So much for the “natural” look!
Firstly I use my holy grail of foundation Éstee Lauder Double wear. I love this foundation. If you are looking for a foundation with lasting power then this is the foundation for you. However, if you have very dry skin I would avoid as it can cling to dry areas. To give a little bit of a dewy look I add some soleil tan de chanel illuminating fluid to my brow bone and cheek bones.
I apply Bobbi Brown corrector just under the eye. I use the shade Bisque. To hide my dark circles I use the Maybelline Eraser eye concealer. I apply this in a triangle under my eye, just like Kim Kardashians contouring routine. I blend it in using my Real Techniques Miricle complexion sponge. As I have very stubborn dark circles I also use the Éstee Lauder double wear concealer in shade 1, just where the dark circles are showing through. I pat this down using my ring finger.
|Only put the concealer under the eye in the triangle shape.|
I have recently been setting my foundation with the Youngblood Rice powder in light. While I don’t really care for the smell of this ( it’s not bad I am just very sensitive to smell) I love how it sets my makeup. It is very light on the skin and it doesn’t give the caked look like some setting powders. To contour I use the HD brows bronzer in shade 2 and the the number 17 shimmer brick in rose to highlight. This shimmer brick is an exact dupe for the Bobbi Brown shimmer brick and a fraction of the price.
I normally run Mac charcoal brown through my brows with an angled brush. This helps give the HD brow look. I set my brows using the Maybelline Brow Drama. I love this and it is well worth buying if you like to keep your brows in order.

I used all Mac eyeshadows. For primer I used Mac pro longwear paint pot in Painterly. This helps your eyeshadows stay on for longer and also makes them look more pigmented on the eye. On the lid I used Mac Blanc type, Amber Lights in the crease and Embark on the outer v. This is one of my favourite eyeshadow combinations. I used an angled brush and Mac fluidline in Blacktracks for liner and Bobbi Brown smokey eye mascara. This is only trial size and it gives your lashes great volume. I plan on buying the full size this weekend.

Holy Lord that is some amount of makeup for a day look.
