My Everyday Makeup

Sharing my three product, minimal makeup for everyday wear…

I’ve seen a lot of every day makeup routines shared across social media recently, through blog posts, YouTube Videos, IGTV videos and also in feed Instagram photos. I love seeing them and thought I’d share mine!

My routine is definitely a lot simpler than most, I only tend to use the same three products – as to me, that really does seem like a more realistic everyday routine!

For the face…

I have been using the Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation* {aff link} for the longest time now. What can I say, I’m a creature of habit…

I love the way this foundation makes my skin look – it never looks cake-y or thick, just naturally flawless. As it doesn’t completely cover every single blemish or any freckles I have on my skin. I’m sure if I layered this foundation up then it would, but that’s not how I prefer to use it.

The double wear foundation has a bit of a reputation for being ‘thick’ and ‘heavy’, but I always like to change that opinion with my review. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not by any means a sheer coverage, but it’s also not as full a coverage as everyone makes it out to be – provided you only use a small amount. This foundation goes a long way, so you really don’t need that much of it!

I’m left with an even skin tone and perfected skin, that also looks more awake – perfect for that every day look!

For the brows…

I can’t ever see myself not using the NYX Brow Pomade* {aff link}, it’s my holy grail for filling in my brows and giving them some shape. I use the Morphe R44 Angle Liner Spoolie Brush* {aff link} to apply the pomade with and love the combo, they’re simply a match made in heaven!

The shade I use is brunette and I feel it matches my hair colour really nicely. I’m quite lucky in the fact that I have naturally quite dark brows, so I can usually get away with an accidental heavy hand on occasion!

For the eyes…

A discovery of mine in 2019 was the Ciate London Wonderwand Mascara* {aff link}. I just want to give a little nod to the packaging, as it’s gorgeous and really quite heavy duty! I love it.

The wand on this mascara is quite thick and usually I don’t like that, but it works for this mascara. It also doesn’t lie, as it gives me thick black lashes with much needed added length. I call it my miracle worker mascara! You don’t need a lot, a few light coats and you’re good to go. You can also build it up for a more false lash effect when creating a full glam makeup look.

 

So that’s my three product minimal makeup routine for everyday wear. I like to keep it super simple and natural – like my face, but just a bit better! Sometimes I might even skip the foundation and just apply my eyebrows and mascara, whatever I feel like on the day usually. I’m quite lucky to not suffer with my skin, so I’m fortunate to be able to skip foundation on most days!

It’s taken a little while to become comfortable in my own skin and not feel the need to wear makeup all of the time, but it feels good!
