Tagged: My Daily Beauty Routine

The lovely Rai @ La Morena tagged me, check out her blog if you haven't done so already!

I tag whoever wants to do this. (:

1) My contacts are the first things I put on. Even if I don't plan on wearing them that day, I still put them on when I'm doing my make-up, and then I take them off when I'm done and put on my glasses. I'm blind as a bat without my contacts or glasses.

2) Clean & Clear Eye Makeup Remover and Clean & Clear Morning Burst Shine Control Moisturizer. I put on my moisturizer first. The make-up remover is what I use to take my make-up all off at the end of the day, it's one of those dual ones that you have to shake up before you put it on a cotton pad, but it works good and it's quick.

3) I prime my eyes first before I put on any make-up. This gives time for the primer to dry and set. Even if I'm wearing just eyeliner or mascara, I'll still put primer on to stop my eyelids from looking oily. From left to right, MAC Soft Ochre p/p, UDPP, Smashbox Photofinish Lid Primer.

4) I didn't get a picture of this one, but then I put on whatever eye make-up (shadow & liner) I decide to wear for that day. Lately, I usually try to match my make-up to my shirt, so it doesn't look so clashing against each other, even though it's a faux pas to match your makeup to your outfit.

5) Then I curl my lashes and apply mascara. My favourites at the moment are Rimmel Sexy Curve mascara, I like to use this for "natural" looking days where I want to coat my lashes but not have it look like I have layers of mascara. And for the days when I want volume I use L'Oreal Carbon Black Voluminous mascara. To finish off my eye makeup, I apply Bonne Bell's Eye Definer e/l in Glow on my waterline.

6) Then I fill in my brows using MAC's 266 angled eyeliner brush and Annabelle's eyeshadow in Ebony which is a matte black. I usually just focus on filling the top arch part of my brows. Then I finish of with a coat of Maybelline Great Lash mascara in clear.

7) Finally, to finish off my face I apply blush. My current favourites are NYX Blush in Mauve and NYC Chroma Face Glow in Moonstone as a highlight. I apply using my Bella Brushes blush brush and I use that little kabuki to buff it out.

8) For my lips I usually go with vaseline, and MAC's Bare Slimshine and Bare Neccessity Dazzleglass.

At the end of the night..

9) Lately I've been using The Body Shop's Tea Tree Skin Cleaning Facial Wash to wash my face after removing my make-up with Clean & Clear's Eye Makeup Remover. Then for any left over racoon eyeliner I use St. Ives Apricot Cleanser on my eyes cause it doesn't sting like the tea tree stuff does. Every couple of days I'll exfoliate with St. Ives Apricot Blackhead Remover Scrub.

Ugh, blogger is messing up again, it's not showing any blogs on my dashboard. Usually when this happens I'll log off and log in again and it'll be fine, but it didn't work. I know a lot of you guys have been having this problem lately too. Blogger needs to get it together!

Till later guys! (:
