The Daily Make-Up



So today is Tuesday and it's the first time since Saturday that I have got up and put make up on. I'm only going to university (writing this post 20 minutes before my seminar starts - great timing Luce!) today but later today I'm going to head into central to pick up my advent calender from my sister at work and to do a little Christmas shopping. But after being stuck in bed feeling gross all weekend, I wanted to feel a bit better so I made a bit more effort than usual.
My hair's up in a bun because it's one of those 'my hair needs washing but I can't be bothered' days, but I'm starting to warm to the idea of having my hair up a lot more recently.
For my base I've started off by using Estee Lauder Face Primer and Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in 52 Vanilla, I've used a Real Technique stippling brush as I only wanted slight coverage today. Dapped from Lasting Perfection concealer in shade 1 from Collection 2000 under my eyes. I've bronzed my temples and down to my cheeks using Benefit Hoola with a Sleek Contour brush. I've used a soft brown eyebrow pencil from Collection 2000 (it's very old and I think it's discontinued now) and then combed through a clear gel from MUA to stop them from being so out of control. I don't think it's helped though, I can't seem to tame them, they're out of control! Added a little bit of MAC Dazzle Lash mascara onto my lashes, I'm currently trying to use up this mascara as I really hate it but I want to use the Back 2 MAC service soon. Contoured my crease with a little bit of Bobbi Brown Heather eyeshadow using a MAC 217. Last but not least, my favourite 'in a rush' lipstick, L'Oreal Caresse in 101 Tempting Lilac! I love this lipstick so much, it's very sheer but the colour is build-able and I feel as though it really compliments my skin tone!
Now I'm late for university and it's raining again, best rush now.
