My Current Makeup Favourites/Routine

It is only recently that I have felt like I am becoming myself again since becoming a mum which was nearly two years ago now. When I have Darcy I lost my love for makeup a lot which is a shame and I just quite simply didn't care about it. The last few months I have found a love again and today I am going to talk about my current favourites and talk you through my routine.

Before anything I apply a primer/moisturiser which smooths out my pores to create a nice base for my foundation, one that I really like at the moment is the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer.
I'll apply this all over my face and neck, I'll then use my Beauty Blender to apply my foundation. The foundation that i've loved since forever is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Light. I change my foundation up a lot as I like to try new things but this one has always been the one that i've fallen back to in the end...aww cute.

After foundation comes concealer, which I actually use two! Under my eye area I use MAC Mineralize Concealer and just below my eye area I use Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer to brighten ready for a highlighter.

After this I apply my Nars Laguna Bronzer which I just absolutely love. I'm currently touching pan so time to buy some more unfortunately. I use this all over my face but concentrate mainly on the contour of my cheeks and temples as well as my nose. Next up, it's my MAC Mineralize Blush.. I love that not only is this a blusher but also a highlighter and it's such a pretty colour too.

Once my face is complete, I then begin colouring in my eyes, ha. I currently use the Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita. It has the most beautiful colours. Generally I only use two colours from this palette but which colours does depend on how I'm feeling. I then use the Charlotte Tilbury Dark Pearl Eye Pencil as an eye liner above my lashes and also below. This gives me a really nice smoky eye.
To finish off my eyes I use the Maybelline Sensational Mascara In Black this mascara is amazing and sooooo much better than some high end brands I have used!
Finally to end off this look I have to pop something on my lips so I use the MAC Spice Lip Pencil.. this is honest my holy grail lip pencil you can use it with so many shades of pink I just looove it. With it I have been currently been using MAC Twig Lipstick a lot. It's a lovely pink nude shade and really makes a difference to how your makeup looks when it is on.

So there we have it, what I have been currently been wearing on my face most days and absoloutely loooooving!
