My Go-To Makeup

Hello my lovelies! 
This post is going to be about my everyday go-to makeup, especially when I don't have time to put on any eye shadow or eyeliner (which for me are not always necessary). Depending on how much time I have I'll suit this makeup around it but most of the time this is what it looks like. It only takes about 10/15 min to do but when I'm rushing I can do it faster. I'll stop rambling now.
So  I always start off with putting my hair in a bun so my hair is out of my face and I can see what I'm doing.
I usually start off by putting on some primer but I forgot this time so moving on to my foundation.
I apologize for the posing but I just felt this urge to over exaggerate these cheekbones. Anyway I was using the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation in the shade 120 Vanilla & the Maybelline Fit Me foundation in the shade 250 Sun Beige as a contour foundation. I usually apply a little on my hand and use a brush spread across the face.
 So I blend everything in making sure I focus on the area underneath my eye, as I have terrible dark circles under my eyes, and that I'm spreading the foundation down my neck because no one wants foundation lines.
After I finish my foundation I still apply concealer under my eyes or on any blemishes which I blend in with my beauty blender, well a dupe but who cares, it does the same thing right? For my concealer I was using the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer in the shade 30 Classic Beige.
And blend!
And now this one is more optional. Face powder. I'm not a big fan of the stick/shiny face look so I will always use this but some people might prefer that. I'm using the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in the shade 4 Sandstorm. I blend this through my forehead, nose and under my eyes. I always put more under my eyes and on my eye lid because I absolutely hate foundation creases on your eyelid. 
I've been getting into this whole contouring this recently, I think it just looks awesome! Or maybe I'm just jealous of my boyfriend's perfect cheekbones. Either way, I just think it can make your everyday makeup just pop. It seems really hard (and it was at first) but after a few Youtube videos and a couple failed attempts... I'm a little better at it. I'm using the Sephora 8hr Wear Mattifying compact foundation which I know isn't a bronzer but it works well so why not.
And blend! With contouring I start of right at the top and blend my way down making sure I'm not blending on the cheek bone but just underneath it (if that makes sense). Basically you're trying to create/accentuate a shadow coming down from your cheekbone creating a more defined face structure. I also do some contouring on my forehead on the sides to show more shape.
I then quickly do my brows. It's not a major part of my life and I'm not obsessed with getting them perfect however I do shade them a little bit with my Laval Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown. I blend it in a little with a spoolie. 

And lastly moving on to the lashes. I'm currently using the Maybelline Lash Sensational which I love soo much! I've seen beauty Youtubers talk about this mascara for a long time and after finding one on promotion in Poland I snatched one up. Just look how amazing it is! I don't think even the picture can show it's full potential. It's one of these thing you just have to try to believe.
And voilà! That's my finished everyday go-to makeup! And here are some vain selfies showing off my contouring (*sighs* one can only dream of the cheekbones) hehe

Thanks for reading, Dom x
