Face of the Day - Daily Makeup

This is all the products I used today and is more or less what I use on a daily basis at the moment. I'm not going to include the prices or where I bought each thing but if you would like to know just comment below.


Firstly I apply a very light layer of My Trusty Little Sunflower Cream. I use this sparingly as it is a very thick cream and needs well rubbed in. Next I dab my face with spots of Bourjois Bronzing Primer and Maxfactor Facefinity. I use my fingers to blend these together and blend them out to cover my whole face. Using the Real Techniques Detailer Brush I apply a concealer from the Accessorize Concealer Kit under my eyes, around my nose and on any blemishes. I use my index finger to blend this out. Finally, I use the Real Techniques Buffing Brush to apply my Collection Lasting Perdection Ultimate Wear Powder. I use a dabbing techniques around my cheeks, eyes and forehead and then drag the brush around my hairline and jawline to make sure there are no lines.

Contouring and Highlighting

Firstly I use my Real Techniques Contouring Brush to apply my contour. For this I use MUA Bronzed Perfection. I lightly apply this product from my ear to where my dimples are and a small amount around my temples. Next I use my Real Techniques Blush Brush to apply Estée Lauder Pure Color Blush in Electric Pink. I start at the apples of my cheeks and then drag this product up towards my ears. Finally I use the Modelsown Powder Brush to apply Beautyuk Baked Blush in Halo. This product is absolutely gorgeous! I apply this to my cheek bones, lightly down my nose, chin and Cupid's bow.


My eyes are something that can vary depending on how much time I have. The products shown above are what I aim to use if I have time, and what I used today. Firstly I apply a base of MUA Eye Primer over each eyelid. For a base colour I use Collection Work the Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in Vintage Blush. Over the outer two thirds of my lid I apply the middle shade from MUA Trio Eyeshadow in Pink Sorbet using a Boots Basic Eyeshadow Brush. I then use the same brush to apply the light colour to the inner corner of the eye and the dark to the outer. To highlight from brow bone I use Shy from the MUA Undress Me Too Palette with a Superdrug Shading Brush. I fill in my brows using a Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil then line my upper lashline and my waterline with Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer. I use the Emite Eyelash Curler then apply a base coat of Nivea Lash Elastic and a top coat of Rimmel Scandaleyes. 

Lips and Finishing Spray

Firstly I prep my lips using Oh! Organics Vegan Lip Balm*. This is a perfect base because it absorbs straight into the lips and isn't glossy or sticky. Next I apply Collection Cream Puff in Cottin Candy and usually blend it out with my finger. To finish off my face I apply a light misting of MUA Fixing Mist.

That is a full list of everything I wear for a normal, daily look. If you have any questions about the products please write them in the comments box below! I have done whole reviews of many of these products and will link them if appropriate :) 



  1. I really enjoyed this post! Please don't think I am trying to sound condescending but it really makes a change from "look of the day' kind of posts. Just a good, honest, "what I use daily" kind of thing. Genuinely very enjoyable.

    I am SO glad you mentioned a Beauty UK product. I think they have really upped their game recently.

    I was in hospital a few weeks ago and found that I had left my brow kit at home (I normally use the Accessorize one). Yes, I know - hospital. I still like to keep the basics in check! Anyway, I despatched my husband off to Superdrug to get another but he came back with the Beauty UK Brow Kit.

    I have to be honest, I was not a happy person! That was before I gave it a go. Now it is the only one I use. You get a choice of 3 colours which seem to suit pretty much everyone I was on the ward with (please don't judge, it gets really boring in hospital so we had pampering sessions!). The wax was fantastic and it even came with a great pair of tweezers. They weren't the kind I would normally use (I use slanted ones and these were flat edge) but they certainly did the job for the odd stray hair.

    What I did want to ask you was how you found the Emite eyelash curlers? I have them too and the first time I used them I swore I wouldn't use them again as they really hurt compared to my old ones. Saying that, I did give them another go and now I absolutely love them. I have really short stubby lashes so getting any kind of curl is a miracle, but these actually do the job.
