I’ve never really posted about my every day routine, mainly because when I think about it, it’s normally 6am and I’m still half asleep. But the sun is out so I thought let’s get some nice photos of all the bits I use to get me looking presentable for the day.
Firstly lets talk about hair. 4 products I cannot live without.
Lee Stafford Blow Dry Faster Spray | Label M Sea Salt Spray | Schwartzkopf got2b beach matt | Schwartzkopf got2b Powder’ful
Round of applause to Lee Stafford, for creating this genius spray. Now that my hair is getting longer, yay for mermaid waves, I find it takes an absolute age to dry my hair. This spray helps detangle and speed up the drying process. Perfect if you just want to get your hair done quickly! I have 2 salt sprays, the first being Label M, this pocket-sized spray has lasted ages. Scrunch it into dry hair for a beachy look or spray it onto wet hair for a more matt look. The got2b salt spray is a lot thicker and I find works better on wet hair, as I tried it the other day on dry hair and it was quite clumpy. If you are looking to create volume in your hair I would highly recommend got2b POWDER’ful, I have forever seen the sponsor advert for this before How I Met Your Mother and laughed at the hairstyles they have created. But this powder serially packs a volumizing punch. I’ve been using a lot for plaits as I like them to be messy.
Now for what goes on my face:
Simple Hydrating Light Moisturiser | Benefit Porefessional Primer | Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation 3.5 | Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer FBI
(L-R) Bodyshop Basic Brush | Barry M Eyebrow Brush | Models Own Eyeshadow Applicator | Mac Angle Brush 266 |Real Techniques Setting Brush | Superdrug Eyeshadow Pro 13, 11
Real Techniques Buffing Brush | Real Techniques Pointed Foundation | Real Techniques Detailer Brush | Real Techniques Contour Brush
Urban Decay Smoked Pallette | Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Back around Christmas time I was lusting over any of the Naked Palettes by Urban Decay, I really fancied getting Naked 1, but as we all know everyone went a bit mad for them at Christmas. I decided that I just needed to get a palette! The Smoked Palette is gorgeous. It even comes with a book of ‘how to’ smokey eyes for every occasion. Also to my pleasant surprise a mini Primer Potion was in the box too! No more splurgy make up at the end of the day. My go to colours are FREESTYLE as my base, in the inner corner I lighten my eyes with KINKY, and for the outer side (the smokey bit) I adore MUSHROOM a nice earthy brown and ROCKSTAR a musky purple.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Liquid Eyeliner | Eyeko Skinny Mini Liquid Eyeliner | Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eyeline Pencil | Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner
I like to mix it up with my eyeliners. My go to for a perfect winged eye is the Maybelline Master Precise, the thin nib is perfect for a swooping wing or a cat eye effect. For a thick ‘I don’t care’ attitude the Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick and Thin is perfect as I find it hard to get it to be thin. Its just a thick chunky line. When I’m creating a really smokey eye I will use my Urban Decay pencil for a really great smudgy look. The Eyeko Skinny Mini lives in my handbag, for those emergencies when even more eyeliner needs to be added during the day.
FLUTTER THEM LASHES:
Maybelline Great Lash Blackest Black | Rimmel Scandaleyes Extreme Black
These 2 mascaras never let me down, I like my lashes to be noticed, both of these do the job! For a more refined look I use the Maybelline Great Lash, sometimes I put on 2 coats for a slightly bolder lash. With the Rimmel Scandaleyes one coat is enough, no clumping just smooth mascara.
So thats it! I know its not as much as what some other beauty bloggers use everyday but for me its what I like and I can fit it in, in a respectable time in the early hours of the morning.
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend. I;ve spent it chilling out, catching up on TV, watching various catwalks from LFW and taking blog photos! Perfect. Now to another week of work and evening blogging. I do have London Fashion Weekend to look forward to (sorry if I keep going on about it, I’m just so excited) and also a phone catch up with an amazing friend.
