I've been meaning to do one of these posts for some time as I always get asked what products my daily makeup routine includes. I rarely change what I use unless it's lipstick or blusher so these products are some of my favourites. I often use easy and convenient products that are small enough to carry around in my makeup bag day after day.


Powder - (£7.50)
I've been using this powder for a long time and originally reviewed this product . I love this powder for setting my foundation and colour works perfectly for my skintone. Carrying around the whole bottle can lead to powder getting everywhere so I usually depot a small amount of this product into an empty pot with a sifter.

Brushes -  (£9.99) & (£9.99)
I've become quite a hoarder when it comes to Real Techniques Brushes, so much so that I can't fit most of my favourites into my everyday makeup bag. I picked up the Mini Brush Trio a couple of weeks ago so I could fit more brushes into my makeup bag. It includes a mini foundation brush, shader brush for eyeshadow and a blush brush. I also have a Real Techniques Powder Brush to set my face with powder.

Liner -  (£12)
This liner is essentially a felt tip pen and I love it. I don't reach for this often but I have it in my makeup bag as it makes flirty flicks fast and easy.


Foundation -  (£25)
I've been wearing this foundation almost solidly since I first discovered MAC in 2009. In terms of finish nothing beats this foundation for me as it looks so natural with maximum coverage. The only downside is that this foundation doesn't last on my oily combination skin as long as other MAC foundations like the Studio Fix Fluid and . As with my powder, I depot my foundation so I don't have to carry around the whole tube on a daily basis. I use an empty 10ml travel tin (pictured) which I got from eBay allowing me to free up space in my makeup bag.
