My Makeup Routine

I thought I'd share a look I had on Saturday. My makeup was very similar during the day, but for night I tweaked it a bit by exaggerating the liquid liner and getting a more polished finish. These are the products I use, in the order that I apply them.

Woolworths Face Smoothing Primer
Revlon ColorStay Foundation for Combination/Oily Skin in 001 Buff
Essence Stay All Day Concealer in 10 Natural Beige
Rimmel Hide The Blemish Concealer in 001 Ivory
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 004 Sandstorm
Estée Lauder Tender Blush in 102 Pink Kiss and 323 Fresh Plum
Essence Holographic Effect Eyeshadow in 42 Mystic Purple (used as highlighter)
Essence Eyebrow Designer in 04 Blonde
Yardley Stayfast Velvet Quad Eyeshadow in Ripe Plum
Woolworths Colour Dipliner in Black
Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in 261 Noir
Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in 001 Black (used on waterline)
Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara in Very Black
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 025 Sweetheart/Valentine

Eek, that list seems quite long and scary once it's all typed up! In all fairness, I'm actually very lazy and try to do my makeup as quickly and effortlessly as possible. (I also really need to get my eyebrows reshaped, eish...)
To my regular visitors: Would more detailed makeup and beauty posts be something you are interested in reading?


  1. I am hopeless with liquid eyeliner :P I've tried it so many times and have simply given up. I like seeing what people do with their makeup to pick up ideas so I am keen to see more posts like this :)

    1. Haha, it took me quite a lot of playing around to get the hang of liquid liner. I think I first bought liner 5 years ago, but only really started wearing it regularly in the last year or so.
      Ok, I'll try put together a few makeup posts from time to time :)

  2. Beautiful! Love the lip colour.
