My Everyday Make Up

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation - £27.00, Urban Decay Good Karma brush £19.50, Collection 2000 mascara £2.99, EOS Lipbalm £4.99

I feel like I haven't done a make up related post in ages, that makes me a bad beauty blogger. *slaps wrist* I feel like it might be time to do a sort of mini updated everyday make up routine even though I don't actually wear make up everyday..
My make up has become somewhat minimal with it consisting only of three actual products and one brush.
On my face I have started to use Urban Decay's 'Naked Skin' liquid foundation which I received for Christmas last year. Despite being (poorly) matched at an Urban Decay counter to a shade 3, which made me look a little on the orange side, I re-matched myself down to a shade 2 that happens to be a perfect match to my actual skin tone. Urban Decay describe this foundation as 'weightless' and I have to agree, you can barely tell its on your skin unlike some foundations that can feel like you've packed on the whole tube even if you haven't.
I apply the foundation with Urban Decay's 'Optical blurring' brush, another fabulous creation by those make up masterminds! I love this brush. It's super soft, cleans easily and does exactly what it says on the tube. It blurs any imperfection perfectly to hide them away and make them less noticeable and for someone with problem skin like me you can't ask for much more. 
For eyes I'm currently using the collection 2000 'Longer lash lengthening' mascara. I am really liking this for long, bold yet still natural looking lashes. Of course I am still relying on every beauty bloggers essential the EOS lip balm, mine is the passion fruit one, yummy! 


  1. Great post! I love reading about other people's make up routines! I personally have just discovered Urban Decay and am already a huge fan!
