Changing My Makeup Routine

Glancing at the mirror the other day I thought…oh no my makeup doesn’t look good! What! When I left my house it looked flawless (so I thought!) Maybe it’s just the mirror or maybe I need to change it up!

Here’s how I’m going to change it! (Any suggestions or recommendations are very welcome ūüôā

Current foundation:  Loreal Paris True Match Foundation in Rose Ivory 

I have used this for years since reading a magazine article that highly recommended it for pale skin. I have been happy with it but more and more I’ve been thinking I need a paler shade!

What I’m thinking of getting instead: Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Syberia

It’s hard to find a Blogger/ Vlogger that doesn’t rave about Nars foundation. I definitely want that to be the next foundation I try. Syberia is the lightest shade they do but I’m not sure if it will be too light. I’m going to head to the makeup counter and try and get a sample to decide.

Current Mascara: Barry M Feature Length Mascara

I have big eyes and I find if I use a volumising mascara my eyes always look heavy like I haven’t had a good nights sleep! That’s why I always go for lengthening mascara like this Barry M one.

What I’m thinking of getting instead: Not sure…

I find it really hard to find lengthening¬†mascaras as the majority of mascaras out there seem to be about achieving the most volumised lashes ever! If anyone knows a really good lengthening mascara I’d love to know in the comments!

Current Eyeshadow: Naked Palette

I always use the virgin eyeshadow as a base and then half-baked. I love the golden tones of half-baked!

What I’m thinking of getting instead: Sticking with the Naked Palette

Although I’m sticking with the Naked Palette I don’t think I’m currently getting the most out of it. There are so many amazing eye¬†looks you can create and my current one is extremely¬†basic! I’m going to watch some Youtube videos to see if I can learn some brand new looks!

Current lipstick: Tanya Burr Luxe Liquid Lipstick in Martha Moo

This is great for me because it’s so easy to apply and best of all it stays on all day. It’s perfect for every day¬†and isn’t far off my natural lip colour, just a more intense version.

What I’m Thinking Of Getting Instead: ASOS Make-Up Matte Liquid Lipstick – Overqualified

I saw this on Youtuber Meg Says channel and instantly fell in love with the shade. It’s a deep pink red tone. I think it will work well against my pale skin!

Current concealer: Rimmel Wake Me Up 

Recently it seems whenever I use this under my eyes it makes me look more tired. Oh how I long for the I’ve had a great nights sleep look! This hasn’t really been achieving that.

What I’m Thinking About Getting: Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer

I’ve read some great reviews on this product and with it being a high street product I think it’s definitely¬†worth giving a go. Hopefully, this will be the end of the tired eyes look!
