DAILY MAKE UP ROUTINEzaterdag, juli 05, 2014Nena / turnitinsideout.com
It's time to show you an update of my daily make up routine since I'm using a lot of new and different products than last year. I discovered the brand NYX a while ago and I'm completely sold. Too bad you can't find it here in Belgium but thank god they sell it on Douglas and also Ebay is a good alternative to find their products. I'm going to tell you in steps what I which product I use everyday. Be prepared cause it's a lot! haha
STEP 1: CAMOUFLAGE
After my day cream I start with a base / primer of Yves Rocher. I can't say if there's a difference when using or not but it gives me a good feeling so that's enough. I always use my concealer before my foundation, I guess that's not the right way but it works for me. I'm a big fan of the NYX concealers. I'm using the color 'light' cause I like the highlighting effect. The foundation I'm using is new to me, I bought it last week after reading some good reviews and it works fine. The color is 'buff' and it's the one for an oily skin. I bought it - here - on Ebay
STEP 2: POWDERS
When I'm done with my foundation I use a transparent powder of Yves Rocher to mat my face. Then I start contouring my face with a bronzer and use a blush also of Yves Rocher (color: rouge). When I'm done with the powders I finish with a water spray.
STEP 3: THE EYES
My eyes, the most important thing of my make up. But first the eyebrows. I don't have a lot of patience in the morning so an eyebrow pencil of Yves Rocher is good enough for me (color: cendrè). Then we have the one thing I can't live without: eyeliner. Pencils or brushes I don't care as long as it's black. I prefer the pencil for my waterline and the brush for my eyelid, both are from Hema. I Of course finishing with mascara of Yves Rocher. Usually this is the last step of my make up.
STEP 4: EXTRAS
Those products are not a daily routine. I only use them when I have a lot of time or for occasions. You can see a butter gloss of NYX (color: creme brulee), a white jumbo eye pencil of NYX. I use this one on my waterline sometimes. The third product is a nude eyeshadow palette of Catrice.
You're probably thinking this takes a lot of time every morning but it doesn't. I go very fast with my make up. I guess it's because I use the same products ever day. It takes me about 30 minutes to get ready in the morning (including my clothes and my hair). Not bad huh ?
As you can see I don't use expensive products, they're not that cheap but also not expensive and they work fine for me so I have no intention to use expensive brands for now.
