My daily makeup routine

Lately I've been using a lot of products for day (weeks) in a row. This is my current favourite routine, which I've been using the last few weeks and which I really enjoy/suits spring.

I put all my daily stuff in this little purple box ^^cute eh - I bought it at Hema. For my eyes I always grab my Naked palette and switch colours to my liking, I think everyone knows this palet so I'm not going to explain it more, if you like nudes you MUST have this in your collection, it's pure love. Most of these products already have a review on them, just check the link, and the reviews of other products will surely follow!

  • First up, I begin with a base that I apply with my hands. Right now I'm using Clarins Eclat Minute. I've found that when using a decent base my foundation/TM looks less cakey. And it helps my blush stay on practically all day. Plus it also smells nice :)

  • As a mascara I'm using Supermagnify by Avon, a really special and very good one which you'll read about soon. I'm already ordering another copy of this one. Great pricequality!

  • Under my eyes I put a bit of YSL Touche Eclat in shade 2, I dab/blend this with my fingers.

  • Then I use By Terry Lumière Veloutée in colour 2 on my cheeks and nose, the places I need a more evened out tone and a bit of coverage. I use my Sigma F80 (top of picture) to apply and blend.

  • As a -liquid- highlighter I'm using Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl and this product is amazing. I love it so much, it's the best highlighter I've ever used and it looks stunning, very natural. I apply this in dabbing motions with the Sigma Round Top F82 or the N7 foundaton brush.

  • My brows are filled in with Anastasia brow powder in Medium Ash with the help of the Sigma SS266/E65, I mainly use the powder at the beginning of my brow and on a few gaps in between. Afterwards I apply Tweezerman Browmousse so they stay in place^^I don't like my brows to be wandering around the place...

  • Then, when my highlighter has sunk into my skin, I'm ready to apply blush. I use Benefits Dandelion, a pretty pale pink blush that gives you that little bit of glow without being too much, very subtle but you need a decent amount of it to obtain the glow I'm talking about. I use my Shu Uemura 20 pony brush to apply this - one of my softest brushes. I sometimes switch and use another blush, but lately I'm always coming back to Dandelion, it's got me hooked I guess...

  • Lastly, I apply Laura Mercier Loose setting powder in Translucent over my cheeks and lightly over my chin and nose with the Sigma F30 large powder brush, this really helps my makeup to stay on longer and doesn't dry out my skin as much as other powders do.

  • How is your makeup routine, does it change a lot or do you stick with a few things that you absolutely adore?!

    Fijne routine! De basis blijft mij bij meestal een tijdje hetzelfde, maar af en toe wissel ik van oogschaduw of zo.
