FOTD | Face Of The Day- Drugstore ♡

Wednesday, 30 July 2014

Don't you love having a 'go-to' make-up look that you can apply effortlessly each day? I think we all must!

I have pretty much always used drugstore make-up over high end make-up for an everyday look simply because you can still get a flawless finish for less money (I know my bank would be thanking me if it knew how much damage would be done if I was using high end make-up everyday). For an everyday look I like to keep it simple with minimal eye makeup and mainly focusing on bronzed and dewy skin with a nude lip. Although wearing higher end makeup makes you feel good I think that for everyday use and a schedule including work and typical daily activities a cheap and cheerful drugstore look like this is totally acceptable!
Especially now it's summer here in England, I have been loving more moisturising and cream products, so here are a list of the products I have been using daily for my 'go-to daily look':

♡ Soap and Glory- Glow Job £7.33
     I use this as a base for my skin and love it! Not only does it act as a moisturiser, it also gives my face a lovely golden glow before I've even started to apply any make-up!
Maybelline- Dream Fresh BB Cream £7.99
    I blend this in using my fingers, a bit like i would a moisturiser which evens out my skin tone    whilst giving me a reasonable amount of coverage. I love this BB Cream for its dewy texture and i love the finish it gives!
Rimmel- Wake Me Up Concealer £5.49
     As the name suggests, this concealer definitely makes me look awake! I apply this under my eyes to brighten them up (it works) and dot a minimal amount on any imperfections that I feel need covering.
Soap and Glory- Archery Brow and Tint Pencil £10.00
     Although quite pricey for what it is, this double ended eyebrow pencil makes filling in brows so much easier and enjoyable to do! I like a think and full brow and am really enjoying the look this creates!
Nyx- Blusher in Taupe £6.00
    A taupe shade blush is the perfect colour for contouring. I simply take a bit on a brush a sweep across the top of my forehead and through the (non-existent) hollow of my cheeks to try and define my face.
Bourjois Cream Blush in Shade 3 £7.99
   Although this applies as a cream blush, the finish is very matte and looks like a natural flush of colour to the cheeks. I find this perfect to apply over the bb cream, a dream combo!
♡ Maybelline- Rocket Volume Mascara £7.99
    I use this as the first coat of mascara to my lashes, I love the plastic brush which allows each lash to be evenly coated and it really does add volume :)
Rimmel ScandalEyes Rocking Curves Mascara £7.99
    As the second coat to my mascara regime, this mascara is essential is adding the curl to my eyelashes. I am very fortunate to have naturally long and curled eyelashes so I never have to use an eyelash curler, however just for satisfaction I use this mascara as a little cheat!
Rimmel- Moisture Renew Lipstick in 'Nude Delight' £6.49
    This is the perfect orange toned nude! Not drying and has good lasting power, this is my ideal drugstore nude! I highly recommend if nude's are your go-to colour.
     

What are your favourite everyday drugstore products? Anything I should try throughout the summer?
Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed ♡
