My Everyday Face ❤

Hello my lovelies!
Hope you're all keeping well? I must admit I love a Sunday and even more when it's a little bit overcast. It's been so humid recently, so I'm glad for a down day where I can just chill and blog. Don't get me wrong, blogging in the sunshine is just the best feeling. However, I definitely get more distracted when the weather is nicer! I'm also doing a lot of Snap Vlogging at the moment, so if you fancy a peek into my day to day life, as well as behind the scenes blogging then add me : JewelBeautyBlog. So, today I'm talking about my current everyday face! I've actually managed to nail down a regular routine, instead of swapping and changing products from my collection. These products give me the perfect medium coverage look, which is great for a busy day at the marketing office, plus it can totally last the night, which makes it great for work events or anything else I may be getting up to, which requires some sturdy coverage! I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below.

I was lucky to receive this as part of my Cult Beauty Summer Goody Bag, on a side note... oh my god it was amazing (see here) Anyhoo, I got this Becca Evermatte Poreless Primer which I'm currently obsessed by. Finally, a water based primer! I've always used silicone & oil base primers, but actually over half of my foundations are either water based or oil free. I've used some nice primers especially from Dermalogica, Laura Mercier and YSL to name a few, but in terms of actually keeping my make-up in place, I have genuinely not come across anything better. After moisturising this is the first thing I apply to start my beauty routine and it preps my skin perfectly for the day ahead. 

Also a more recent acquisition, but I love it nonetheless. Depending on what kind of look I'm going for on that day, I will either mix with my Clinique Moisture Surge to create a luminous teint for those no make-up days, or if I'm tanning I tend to mix it in with my Clinique Even Better Foundation to  bring it up a shade. It's also great for blending down your neck or around any pesky area's that you need to quickly cover up. We've all been there right?!

There has definitely been a surge of Clinique into both my skincare & make-up routines, which is surprising as I for some reason thought it wasn't for me. A few of my friends have found it too harsh on their skin, but personally my skin loves the stuff and being the skin-care/make-up junkie that I am, I'm not one to deny my skin of what it wants. Once I'm all prepped and primed I apply this with a buffing brush and it covers my skin perfectly! It has such a nice medium coverage, which makes it a good option for busy days at work. It's designed to combat hyper-pigmentation and deliver brighter skin, both immediately and over time and has an SPF15 oil free formula! 
Next up I use the Crayon De Sourcil, which is a semi permanent mineral brow pencil. The idea behind it is that it allows you to enhance the appearance of your brows by mimicking the appearance of tiny hairs for a natural-looking effect. The brow pencil itself contains cocoa butter, shea butter and bees wax to give your delicate skin a treat. It claims to be ‘semi permanent’ because it is transfer resistant and does not smudge. It has been my go to brow product for the past month, as it really does create flawless, structured brows that last!

I'm definitely a Chanel girl when it comes to my Mascara! I adore their Le Volume and Inimitable Mascara's. Whilst at Duty Free recently, I decided to try their new Dimensions De Chanel Mascara, which I'm really enjoying. It definitely does a bit of everything and gives my eyes the volume, length and the dimension that I need. It's also the best mascara I have used to layer! You can even add a coat on a few hours later and not have to worry about clumping or spider lashes.

I tend to go in and out of wearing eye-liner, but my current go to is the Kevin Aucoin Primatif in the shade Navy. It really makes my eyes pop without being too obvious. Sometimes I like to pop this on, especially if I'm working late for an event at work. It's a lovely transitional product to give yourself a little beauty boost! 
A super full coverage concealer, which is perfect for a long day in the marketing office. I would say this is a little thicker than I would usually like to wear, but it's honestly so good at perfecting the whole eye area, without looking overly cakey. It also keeps pesky dark circles at bay!

This product needs no introduction. It's just life. I adore this and can rely on it to keep me looking glowy, healthy and on top of my game throughout the day. It is looking pretty battered, but that just goes to show how much I love it. I litreally take it everywhere I go! 

Another staple from CT! This is my favourite everyday blush and I love how it combines both peach and pink tones to create a really natural glow. It's also pigmented enough to amp up your look.

Finally, on a day to day basis I like to go for a nudey pinky peach lip and the perfect way to achieve this for me personally, is by filling my lips in with the beautiful Charlotte Tilbury Lip Pencil in the shade Pillow Talk. I also find this the easiest shade to use if I want to slightly overline my lips! I usually end up looking like a clown, when I try with the likes of soar.

Once I have filled my lips in with Pillow Talk, I apply a few swipes of Penelope Pink onto my lips, which is a completely wearable Pinky Nude, and I'm ready for the day ahead!


I hope you enjoyed this post lovelies, it feels good to get back to my blog again. Don't forget to check out my 6 week fitness plan below, if you're interested to follow my weight loss and toning journey.
