Daily make-up

This is my standard daily, go-to make-up. The basics that I wear everyday for work, then in the evenings I will usually spend a bit more time playing with eyeshadow colours.

As you can see it's not too much. A good quality foundation is really important to me and I am still loving my Clinique 'Stay Matte' foundation. I'm thinking next of re-buying Dior's 'Forever' foundation that I have used in the past as I always got complimented on my skin whilst wearing it. I've been on the hunt for a great mascara and have been using a sample of Lancome's new 'Hypnose Star' mascara. It's pretty good but not the holy grail... I have slightly sensitive eyes and don't want a mascara that 'crumbles' off with the risk of getting bits in my eyes! (itchy!) Any mascara recommendations welcome!

A concealer I've re-bought a few times is Boujour's 'healthy mix' one. It smells lovely and really does have a healthy benefit on the skin. I have tried the foundation version but it just slid off throughout the day.

Blusher I've been using is a lovely rosy pink called 'pink cloud' by natural collection. Really surprised at the quality and staying power of this considering it's £1.99! I enjoy mixing high-end brands with 'drugstore' bargains. I love this retractable brush I bought from M&S for £5, and it's got diamantes on it... bonus!

Always learnt it's important to do your eyebrows as they frame your face. Currently using this brow pencil from No7 because it's quick and easy, although I need to find a better colour match unfortunately. For my eyes I use loads of different things but these are my current favourites; Maybelline's tattoo cream gel eyeshadow in 'on & on bronze', and Rimmel's 'glam eyes' liquid liner. The bronze is a gorgeous colour and doesn't crease at all and the eye liner is great for precision, quick and easy for flicks.

Lastly the product I use on my lips changes daily, but this is one of Maybelline's popsticks in 'pink lollipop'. Overpriced at £7.19 as there is not much colour payout but it's really moisturizing so is good for daily wear.

Any daily make-up products that you trust and always lean to?
