My Current Makeup Rotation


If you are like me and have to store your make up away in old beauty boxes and a set of drawers, you will know that it can be hard when you are in a rush to pick what make up you want to wear for that day. This is especially hard if you give yourself more time in bed and less time to get ready than you should like me. (Why is it so hard to get out of bed????) To help combat this problem I have a smaller make up bag on my dresser with all the items I want to use in. One of my fave things to do on a Sunday night is choose which items to put in my make up bag for the week. So here is my current makeup rotation. 

So I haven't been too adventurous when it comes to complexion and I have chosen many of my favourites as I want something I know I can rely on when I am going to work these include the GOSH Prime and Set Powder, Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, Revlon Colourstay Foundation and the NYX Concealer. For blush I have gone with one of my new faves the Barry M Cream Blush Stick and continuing on with the Barry M theme with the Barry M Light Me Up highlighter and the Barry M contour kit have also made it to my makeup bag this week. The highlighter I chose as I saw dizzybrunette3, use it on one of her YouTube videos and thought that it looked gorgeous. The Barry M contour kit is one of my faves in light packaging it is easy to travel with and the bronzer and the contour shades are beautiful just for adding a bit of colour although I am not a big fan of the highlight shade. 

For eyes I have a rather small selection as usually during the week I don't have time to apply anything. It takes a long time to blend those eyeshadows you know. So if I am have enough time I will usually go for the Barry M Eyeshadow Pencil as this is very easy just to put on my lid and blend away the edges for a quick look but still look put together. I also use the L'Oreal Superliner for days when I have that little bit of extra time to get ready. For occasions when I have loads of time to get ready or am going out out I will use the Charlotte Tilbury Eye Shadow Quad in Dolce Vita having the four shadows together makes it really easy to put together a look that looks beautiful. I also use the Urban Decay Primer Potion to make sure that my eye shadow stays in place and it also makes the pigment that little bit better too. For brows I am currently using this Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara as I have very full brows I am lucky that I don't need much doing to them put this keeps them in place all day. To finish it all off Benefit Roller Lash, nothing too dramatic in my books but this means it looks very natural perfect for work. 

And finally on to lips, I have a few selections depending on my mood for the day. If I what an autumnal lip I will go for either the Maybelline The Mats in Divine Wine or the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Grand Cru both of these are perfect autumnal colours and need minimal topping up. If I am in more of a nude lipstick mood I will go for the Rimmel Kate Moss Nude Lipstick in 42, the Kate Moss line is one of my favourite for lipsticks and I have quite a few  already but also have my eye on a few more to add to my collection. If I am feeling particularly lazy I will just put on a swipe of the L'Oreal Infallible Mega Lip Gloss in Protest Queen, this gives a lovely gloss to the lips and at least looks like you have made some sort of effort. 

What is in your current makeup rotation? 

See you tomorrow!
