    My Everyday Make Up Routine

    Clinique CC Cream

    I used to think of CC creams as low coverage quick fixes for a no-make up/ natural look. However, after using this gorgeous CC cream from Clinique I think completely differently. It gives my skin a smooth glowy finish, covering any redness and feels lightweight at the same time. I use the colour medium.

    Mac Studio Fix

    Depending on what I have planned for the day I can get away with just CC cream and concealer/powder,
    however if I want a little more coverage I will add a touch of Mac Studio Fix over the top to give a long wearing flawless finish.

    I have been using this foundation for years. I use shade NC20 in the winter, NC25 in the summer and find it blends perfectly into the skin.

    Mac Studio Fix Powder

    To set my look I will take a big fluffy brush from real techniques and my Mac Studio fix powder , another product I have used for years, which leaves my skin silky yet matte ready to be bronzed.

    Chanel Bronzer

    The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-kissed look. Super natural looking and gorgeous chic packaging, this is a must have on my daily make up menu.

    Mac Blush

    This is the best powder blush that I have ever used, its a great colour and is not too pink, but more natural looking powder blush colour. I find it blends really well with my foundation, feels great on my skin and is very long lasting. Everything you can wish for in a blush.

    HD Brow Pencil

    This fabulous brow pencil is perfect for creating hair strokes that mimic the appearance of natural brow hairs. Blendable and smudge-proof, the formula is soft in texture with a powdery finish making application super easy. It also features a built-in sharpener for sharpening on the go.

    Mac Eyeshadow Palette

    This well-edited palette features a colour wave of pinky nude hues and provides an array of textures from
    matte to satin to frost for creating a variety of looks for both day and night.

    Clinique Mascara

    This gentle, long-wearing mascara keeps lashes held up high all day. Its lightweight mousse-like formula means its flake and smudge resistant and gives your eyes that bigger, brighter, boosted look.

    Mac Whirl and Velvet Teddy

    I’ve wont bore you by talking about Velvet Teddy any more as its featured in 50% of my posts on my blog. Whirl and Velvet Teddy paired together create my go-to every day look. Chic and sophisticated, they look great on a wide variety of skintones.

    Is there anything missing from my make up bag which you think I will love? Please leave me a comment with your recommendations!

      That Chanel bronzer is just goals. I am always so fond of Chanel products, probably because of the packing, but hey don't we all love great packing. Anyway, great review!! Hairwonderfuldayhttps://www.bloglovin.com/blogs/hairwonderfulday-18776445
