My Nightly Routine


Hey everyone,
Today I am going to go through my nightly face routine for all that may be interested in what I clean my face with. Side note, I also do this every morning. 


To start off I like to cleanse my face. I like to use Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm. I slightly wet my skin beforehand then I apply the cleanser to my face and neck in a circular motion. I then use cotton wool balls soaked in water to rince off.
Anyone who has never heard of Elemis it is a British spa and skincare brand. If you're interested click the link below to check out their site.

I then either pat dry my skin or leave it to dry naturally. Once dry I will quickly take a cotton ball and use Darphin Micellar water on my face and neck. This stuff is really good as it not only neutralizes the bad effects of tap water but also remove a any dirt that may still be lying on the skin in a gentle matter.



After this step is done I will tone my face and neck again with cotton balls. I like to switch my toners now and again so I like to either use Darphin Purifying Toner or Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner.















Lastly I apply moisturizer, I use Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
This leaves my skin feeling soft, clean and looking radiant.




And that sums it up for my daily face routine,
Hope you enjoyed, if so don't be afraid to leave a comment

My Everyday Makeup Routine

For my everyday makeup I like to try and keep it light, simple and not too over dramatic.
I start things off with a clean bare face. I then go ahead and moisturise my skin. This is the most important step in my opinion as it puts lost moisture back into the skin. I also find that makeup sits better when moisturised.

After I have moisturised I will apply concealer on the dark circles around my eyes and on any imperfections/blemishes I may have on that day. I then just lightly pat it onto and around the areas where have been applied.
I was using the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer, but sadly ran out. So I am currently using Essence Stay Natural concealer in number 03 soft nude.
















I then apply my foundation with a flat faced brush in a downward motion so that foundation doesn't get caught in the little baby hairs. I blend all the way to my ears, hair line and neck/jawline.
I am using the L'oreal Infallible 24H foundation in 125/ natural rose.
May I also note, this smells like summer!




Next I will go ahead with eyes, I will firstly apply Urban Decays Eye Primer Potion and then sticking with Urban Decay, use the Naked one pallet. Going for quite a soft natural look I would use Virgin mixed with Sin.












I then will use a little bit of highlighter on the brow bone, I use Benefits High Beam


After the eye shadow is applied I will then apply mascara on top and slightly on lower lashes, I find this gives me more of a open eye look, as I have quite long and thick eyelashes.
I am using Maybelines Great Lash mascara in colour blackest black.

 

BROWS my eyebrows are so important to me, I can't go anywhere without filling them in, I use eye shadow to fill them in, I use NYC HD Colour in number 815 Best of Broadway. I mix two colours together as I feel this gives me the best result with matching the colour of my brows. I use a angled brush to do this.


After the eyes are all done I will quickly powder  my face with Me Me Me Flawless Loose Powder. This just sets my foundation and gets rid of any oiliness.


I will then throw on some bronzer on the cheekbones to just inject some colour into my face. I am using Essence Matt Bronzing Powder in number 01 natural. Unfortunately I dropped it and now it has formed into a crumbly powder, it still does the trick though!



Last but not least I will apply some lippie to make my lips stand out. I am using an Essence lip stick in number 01 and it is called Coral Calling.



I hope you enjoyed this blog post.
