My Current Face

I thought I would start the week off with a post I haven’t done before; one about the products I am currently using to make myself look acceptable on an average day. I work in a customer facing job and try to keep my everyday makeup pretty simple so that it doesn’t look crazy or starts sliding off my face after a stressful day. (I’m not suggesting my face is very oily btw)


I start off with foundation and am currently using Rimmel Match Perfection in Ivory. This foundation is fab and my go to base as it gives great coverage but is not overly thick looking. I am a pale person (Caspar the ghost pale) so I always want to be careful that I don’t get a line on my jaw with any foundation. I have a couple of these foundations so that I don’t run out anytime soon and will continue to use this one in the future.

I then use a dab of Rimmel Stay Matte Mousse Foundation in Ivory again as a touch up to conceal any imperfections that have snuck their way through the base foundation. This has been a go to product of mine for a couple of years now and i can’t see myself giving it up anytime soon.

Next I have been using Soap & glory Thick & fast mascara on my lashes everyday. It is lovely and light and the brush doesn’t give me a clumpy look like spiders legs which i cannot stand. it looks lovely and natural and i absolutely love the effect it has.

Lastly I try to use a bit of bronzer to highlight my cheeks and the occasional light shade of eyeshadow on my lids. I don’t use much, just a mere smattering of colour to give some warmth to my face and look less pasty and ghostlike. Currently I am using a palette that’s from Next and I absolutely love all the metallic eyeshadow shades and the lovely bronzer shades in it.

I don’t mix up my makeup a great deal as once I find a good product, I tend to stick to it. For a night out I would use a different mascara maybe and darker eye shadow shades but my base doesn’t change at all really.

Have you shared your everyday face makeup recently? and can you recommend any products to me?

Hope you enjoyed this post.
