❤❤My Current Makeup Routine❤❤

Hi Beauties!
I have literally been doing so many reviews recently, so I thought it would be a nice break to show you my current make-up routine, and also just to have a general chit chat with you lovelies. I haven't done a make-up routine for ages, as I regularly change up my products. However, recently I have been sticking by a routine and thought it would be a great chance to show you what products I have been loving. If you follow me on twitter you will know I had an interview at a 5* Spa resort the other day and I'm awaiting a call to see whether or not I go the job. I felt quite confident about my interview, but you just never know with interviews haha!!. I'm absolutely obsessed with skincare so working at a beautiful spa surrounded by my favourite skincare brand Elemis, would be such an amazing job for me *fingers crossed*. I'm actually doing a bit of a series at the moment, as I have already posted my requested hair care routine HERE, so next I will look at doing my skincare routine using my Elemis products. So anyway, I will get right into my make-up routine and I would love to hear from you below in the comments section. Also, if you would like to get in contact with me, then you can via my social media buttons to the right hand side.
Base - Urban Decay Beauty Balm & Urban Decay NAKED Skin Foundation 4.5
My go to base for the past few weeks has definitely been my Urban Decay Beauty Balm as a perfecting primer, with one pump of  my Urban Decay foundation on top. The finish is literally like flawless skin and even better it lasts on me all day long with no touch ups. I also have a full review on the Urban Decay BB coming very soon!
Eyelid Primer - Urban Decay Primer Potion In Eden 
Recently I have really gotten into using a primer, especially Urban Decay's Primer Potion In Eden. It not only primes my eyelids, but also conceals and brightens my whole eye area. The yellow tone is great for Colour correcting and a little under the brow bone looks amazing as well. I have a review on this product just a few posts below this one, if you would like to check it out. 
Eyeshadow - Urban Decay NAKED Basics 
My daily look is pretty much found within the NAKED Basics palette and I'm really loving using Walk Of Shame over my lid and the Naked 2 to create definition to the crease, and then finishing off with Faint in the outer corner. Its a really simple look that creates just enough definition to make your eyes stand out, as well as being a great look for everyday, work and college. I then define my upper lash line with my Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow pencil in "wasteland". I also have a recent review on the Basics Palette just a few posts below.

Mascara - Avon Super Shock & Chanel Inimitable Mascara
The Avon Super Shock mascara combs the lashes out beautifully and separates them in preparation for one coat of my favourite Chanel Inimitable Mascara.
Concealer - Benefit Erase Paste #1 
Erase Paste has been in my make-up bag for the longest time and its probably the only product which has never changed or left my side. I love and use shades #1 & #2 and feel that it really helps to awaken my eyes.

Blush - Benefit Fine One One 
This is a new addition to my routine but I love the mixture of the Pink, Peach and the highlighter it creates a beautiful shade that is absolutely perfect for spring. A review for this product will be coming real soon, so keep a look out for it :D

Picking a lip Colour is really hard because this actually does change every single day, but I thought I would include some of my most worn shades.

Chanel Rouge Allure Seduisante - A very wearable mid toned Pink (review below)
Rimmel Appocalips Nude Eclipse - A classy light Nude shade
MAC Shy Girl - A wearable warm Nude

I hope you liked this post lovelies and I would love to know if you use any of the same products, or even if you would like to try any of the products I have mentioned. If you have a similar post then please leave your links below and I will make sure that I check each of them out.

  36. What a beautiful collection of products for your makeup routine! I haven't tried any of these products though unfortunately :( The Erase paste looks awesome though and I've heard a few raves about it! I agree that picking lip colours are difficult- it really depends on your mood on the day! I love all 3 shades you have picked out though, I would love to be able to try Chanel and MAC lipsticks (cosmetics are so expensive here in Australia).

  37. I'm also a business student and part time blogger!
    Great post, I'm dying to try the Fine One One
