Everyday Makeup Routine

Hey guys! Today I thought I’d share the products I use in my everyday makeup routine. I love reading these type of posts/watching these on YouTube as I’m quite nosy and I like to see what products other people use in their routines, so I thought I’d do one of my own. Hope you enjoy! xFACE

Neutrogena | Oil free moisturiser SPF 15

A great face starts with a great base! Before I apply any makeup, I always moisturise first. I’ve used this particular one for years and the SPF in it ensures my skin is protected from any damage from the sun.

Maybelline | Dream Pure BB Cream

I then apply my base. Instead of using a traditional foundation, I prefer a BB cream, as it is lighter on my skin during the day. It has fairly light coverage, but it’s just enough for me for day to day use. I apply it with either a beauty blender or a real techniques expert face brush. What tool I use just depends on how I’m feeling that day. Hey, sometimes I’m so lazy I even apply it with my fingers! Oops!

Maybelline | Fit me concealer

If I’m carrying dark Gucci bags under my eyes, I may go in with some concealer. I’ve used this one from Maybelline for years and it’s never disappointed me. I use the shade 15. I blend it out with whatever I used to apply my BB cream – sponge, brush, fingers…the possibilities are endless!

Australis | Fresh and flawless pressed powder

To set my base, I’ll use some pressed powder. This one from Australis is fantastic. If you’re in Australia or if you have access to this brand, I highly recommend you check it out.

Australis | AC ON TOUR palette

In order to bring some life and colour back into my face, I’ll contour and highlight with this palette from Australis. I couldn’t take a picture of it because my clumsy self dropped it just the other day and all the powders smashed 😦



Essence | Eye shadow 17 – “no cream, no sugar”

Essence eye shadows are amazing! I have so many of them it’s ridiculous. I use a fluffy blending brush to run this cool toned neutral brown shadow through my crease and slightly above. A very (very!) simple eye shadow look. I don’t really like to play around with my eye shadow every day.

Maybelline | Master precise liquid liner

Winged liner is my go to look. I wear it every day to the point where I almost feel naked without it! Once again, this particular product I have used for years and if they ever discontinue it I’ll be absolutely devastated.

Maybelline | One by one mascara (discontinued)

This is my absolute FAVOURITE mascara of all time! Unfortunately, it’s been discontinued! I had a stash of backups but I’ve nearly used them all up. Any suggestions for a good drugstore mascara?

Model’s prefer | Kohl pencil “dark chocolate”

To define my eyes that bit further, I apply this dark brown eyeliner on my lower lash line, and then soften it out with a cotton tip.

Australis |“Tint my brow” brow tint

I’m pretty simple when it comes to brows. I just run this tint through them and I’m done!


I don’t have a specific lip product to mention for my makeup routine because it’s the one product that I change up every day. Sorry! But I will say NYX lip products are generally what I use, it’s just the colour that changes.

And that’s it! Hope you enjoyed!  Do you use any of these products? What do you think of them? What products do you use every day?
