My Daily Makeup Routine

Hi everyone!

Although I love experimenting with my makeup and trying out new products, when I’m in a rush in the morning I just like to stick to a tried and tested routine that I know is going to last me throughout a long day at work. There are some products that I have been using on a daily basis for a while now and so I thought it was time to do an update of my daily makeup look.


Firstly I apply a primer and my favourite at the moment is the Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer. I have the type of skin that makeup just seems to slide off so it is essential for me to use a primer to help my makeup stay in place all day.

Next I use Esteé Lauder Double Wear foundation which has been a saviour product for me for years. Some foundations have replaced it at the top spot for a while including Nars Sheer Glow and YSL Fusion Ink but I always end up coming back to Double Wear in the end.

To cover any blemishes I like to use Esteé Lauder Double Wear concealer which is just amazing and for those pesky under eye circles I have really been liking Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer.

Powder wise I rarely stray from using Clinique Almost Makeup Powder which I must have rebought about a hundred times. I have yet to find a powder that I like as much as this one and have almost given up the search; why fix what isn’t broken?!


My blusher is one product that I tend to switch up on a day to day basis but one I have been reaching for a lot lately is the Benefit Box-O-Powder in Hervana. This blusher consists of four shades which swirl together to create a gorgeous girly pink glow. I have then been teaming this with a dab of Topshop Glow Stick in Play Up across the cheeks bones as well as under the brow bone and down the centre of the nose.


Eyeliner wise I just go for a simple pencil liner along the waterline for my every day look and my favourite has got to be the Boujois Khol and Contour pencil in Ultra Black. I use Clinique Bottom Lash mascara which I thought would be a gimmick but now I can’t live without, and Benefit Roller Lash on the top lashes.


Benefit Brow Zings is my go to eyebrow product applied with an angled brush to get a lovely natural finish. This product stays put all day and is so easy to use. You can read a full review of it here if you would like to know more :)

Lipsticks and lip glosses are the other type of products that I like to swap and change between depending on the outfit I am wearing and the mood I am in. Having said that I often get really dry lips so lip balm is a must for me every day. At the moment I really like the lip balms which I created using an at home kit from Not On The High Street.

And that completes my daily makeup routine! I’d love to hear in the comments below which products you use in your daily makeup routine as well as your ‘can’t live without’ products!

Thanks for reading,

  1. It's interesting to see what others use for their daily makeup and I noticed Estee Lauder Double Wear seems to be a favourite for many. I really need to get my hands on Roller Lash, it's pricey but I'm really curious to give it a go.
