Our Everyday Makeup

We have listed below the everyday makeup we use. We go for quite a natural look for day to day.

Clinique Universal Superprimer

We always use a primer before applying our foundation. The primer feels almost like a moisturiser when applying it to the skin. The primer sinks into the skin nicely and does not leave any sticky residue. We have tried a few different primers however this is the one that makes our makeup last longest and works well for us.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in shade 2.0
We have tried SO many foundations in so many colours some that were far too light for our skin tone and others that were too dark (we've all been there haven't we?) A few months ago we heard some good reviews about this foundation and wanted to give it a try, we went and got colour matched and found this foundation to be a really good coverage for us and blends really nicely on the skin. We use a foundation brush to blend this in and finish of with a beauty blender.

Colour Correctors & Concealer

Urban Decay Naked Skin Colour Corrector in pink & NYX HD Colour corrector in Green 
We have only recently started to use colour correctors. The pink one is amazing for disguising dark circles under your eyes it's like magic we love this product and would definitely repurchase. You can also use this as a highlighter which is an added bonus. The green one counteracts any redness so this is amazing if you have any red angry spots. Just apply a small amount of this over the red area, blend in and put your normal concealer over the top. This really does make a difference in the appearance of our makeup.  

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15

This concealer is a creamy based concealer.This is the perfect shade for us and it blends well with our foundation and does not crease around our eyes. We use a beauty blender to apply & blend this onto our face.

Face Powder
Natural Collection pressed powder in Neutral 
 We have been re purchasing this powder for a really long time (9 years to be exact!) This powder adds colour and mattes our face from any unwanted shine. Even better this powder is only £2 bargain!

Urban Decay Beached Bronzed in Sun-Kissed 

This is one of our favorite bronzer's (we love the packaging how cute!) The bronzer comes with a compact mirror and  has a matte finish without the shimmer. It is more of a warm toned peach coloured bronzer and is good for pale skin as it gives a natural glow.

MUA Luxe Bronzed & Sculpt Contour Kit in Light/Medium

Who doesn't love a good contour. This kit is great for travelling as it comes with a bronzer and highlighter all in one along with a compact mirror. This bronzer is more of a darker bronzer compared to the Urban Decay bronzer. Once applied to the skin it blends in well. This is a matte bronzer and doesn't have any shimmer in. (You can probably tell we don't like our bronzers to have shimmer in lol)

The highlighter in the kit is very pigmented and is a silvery based highlighter. Once applied to the skin it looks beautiful on and is a little more subtle than the highlighter below. 

Makeup Obsession Highlighter in Peal

We had been on the hunt for another highlighter when we came accross this brand in Boots. Once we swatched the colour we loved it instantly and decided to try it out. This highlighter is very pigmented and is a lovely gold shimmery colour. This is more 'in your face' than the MUA highlighter above but once blended looks so pretty.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara in intense black

We have used so many high end and high street mascaras but for the last few years we have been using the Lash Sensational Mascara. The brush is a plastic applicator that makes it easier to separate and lengthens the lashes and doesn't clump up. Even better this is only around £8.

Lip Care
Paw Paw Balm & Blistex Relief Cream 

We usually go between different lipsticks depending on our outfits each day but for the days we don't wear a lip colour we like to keep our lips hydrated and soft by using these two products.

The Paw Paw balm is enriched with Bio Active Manuka Honey that makes it very moisturising and is a great all rounder product as you can use it on dry skin or cuticles etc.

We use Blistex relief cream for when our lips are feeling sore or cracked. We use this all over our lips and apply the Paw Paw balm on top for extra moisture. 

Make up setting spray
Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

In the past we have used Mac fix + makeup setting spray and did really like it but since we have been using the Urban Decay all nigher makeup setting spray we have been converted! This really does have staying power and does keep your makeup on all day!

What make up do you guys use? Have you tried any of the make up mentioned above? If so let us know!

  2. Another great colour corrector is from Maybelline, and from Essence. Cheap, and they're so creamy! I hear really good things about the Naked Skin by Urban Decay, but since it's a little ways out of my price range I couldn't be bothered to try it just yet. x
