My normal make-up routine!


Yay, finally I’m doing a beauty post. I was meant to post this last weekend but I got caught up sorting stuff out for college. Also, I know I just made my posting day Wednesday, but after looking at my timetable and running a poll on Twitter I have decided that Friday is a better day for this! So yeah, let me talk you through (what is technically) my normal makeup routine…

1 .Face Wipe and Primer

So, firstly I use a cleansing wipe to, well, clean my face. I’m currently using Sainsbury’s Own Tea Tree wipes; I unfortunately don’t have an image! Then I use a primer to protect my skin. Right now I have the Skin Illuminator by No7 and I think it’s pretty good (but it’s the only one I’ve ever had so I’ve nothing to compare it to!!)

2. Concealer

After that, I use a concealer to cover up any spots and to light up dark areas. This is the Cover Stick by Maybelline in Vanilla and I’ve been using it for a few years so it must be pretty good. It’s almost lipstick consistency rather than liquid which makes applying quite easy.

3. Foundation

I then use a foundation to even it all out! This is Beautifully Matte by No7 in Calico and the brush was part of a set also from No7. This is the most expensive, and best, foundation I’ve owned. The last one I had was from Seventeen (I think) and I found it a bit orange and clumpy. This is much smoother!

4. Powder

Next, I use a powder to finish it all off. This is Airbush Away Finishing Powder No7. The powder brush wasn’t in the No7 set, I think it’s from Marks & Spencer.

5. Mascara

Obviously I don’t use these both at the same time, but these are the mascaras that I own. I do this after I’ve done all the face stuff. The red one is Lash Impact Mascara by No7 and the silver one is Dramatic Lift Mascara by No7. I used a mascara from a cheaper brand before and it was a bit clumpy but this is much better.

6. Other

Everything I’ve already mentioned is my basic routine, but sometimes I do other things too. Here there is (all No7): Honey Blush Powder, Good Earth Stay Perfect Eye Shadow Palette, Beautiful Eyebrow Kit, Honey Bloom Lipstick, Matte Lip Crayon, an Eye Contour brush, Stay Perfect Liquid Eyeliner and a Stay Perfect Amazing Eyes Pencil. I also have an eyelash curler and an EOS lip balm! I only use these things occasionally, if there’s a special event or something. I do any of this after I’ve done all of the above.

*Disclaimer* Whereas I did buy some of these things at the same time, I didn’t buy all of it all at once because neither myself or my mum have that much money! I got some of the items free or for Christmas too. Also I am not being paid to talk about No7 products, I just so happen to have a lot!

UPDATE: I’ve now done a Youtube video on my makeup routine, check it out here:

    I have never used a primer (which is dumb because i got a good one in my BareMinerals kit) but i am afriad it’ll break my face out. I keep my eye makeup pretty simple most days because at work “we can’t stand out”, i cant even wear my hair up because i have an inner ear piercing.

      I’ve never had a problem with primer I don’t think. I’m a teenager, so I blame my break outs on hormones 😂
