Winter Make up routine

So to start off with I Use the no 17 concealer in fair to conceal the vast amount of spots on my face, this works in combination with my face make up really well to make my imperfections less visible. Bringing me onto my Mac Studio tinted moisturiser in Light - I don't tend to wear actual foundation often as this works really well for me; creating a smooth and matte base on my face. Then most of the time I go in with a bit more concealer to make sure my spots aren't showing as much. Then for my cheeks, I don't usually wear blush but I recently found this one by Sleek which I really love for the winter called Pomegranate (923), a dark cranberry colour perfect for the festive season. Because the pigmentation of this blush is so powerful I apply my Natural Collection pressed powder in Warm on top of it of it so that the colour is a bit more natural and less.. theatrical.

At this point I then prep my lips firstly with the Popcorn lush lip scrub to exfoliate and then my Nivea lip butter in raspberry  to let the moisturiser sink in before I apply my main lip colour. 
Then for my eyeshadow I like to keep it simple by using this really great Rimmel quad in Smokey brun -  I start off with this champagne/light bronze colour (1) all over my eyelid acting as a base, next the lighter white shimmery colour (2) on my inner corner; I like putting the lightest colour on the inner corner of my eye because it brightens up the look rather than it just looking like you've thrown lots of darker colours all over your eyelid. Then to finish off with the bronze colour on the outer third of my eyelid and a little bit in the crease

Lastly for mascara I use Benefit's They're Real on top and bottom. 
For lips I change it up everyday depending on what i'm doing, today I was going christmas shopping with some friends so I decided to go with My Mac Hug me and then my Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle, both of which featured in my Top 6 Autumn Lip Colours.

I'm planning to cram in another post before Christmas but just in case I don't I hope you have a fantastic Christmas everyone!

See you next time,
