I've been a bit iffy about doing this sort of post because 1) I'm no makeup guru, merely a (massive!!) consumer, 2) Things that work for me may not work for you & 3) I don't want people to think I wear "too much makeup". However, Over the past few days I've been asked a few times about what makeup I wear. I'm not one to disappoint my followers, So here it goes! Disclaimer! In true me style I have edited the pictures to fit in with my blogs aesthetic! So all the colors aren't the "exact" color they are when I look at them, But like I said these are just the "basic" products I use of my face!

I wear makeup everyday. I'm not going to lie about that at all, Id also never even dream of leaving my house without my makeup. Its not because I'm insecure about the way I look I just feel that I don't look "like myself" without makeup! Does anyone else feel that way? Although my friend Greg says I look the same without makeup on, So who knows! I do vary between full makeup, just the eyes and light coverage foundation though, and no I don't wear all this stuff on my face at the same time!

Daily Makeup (Face)
L-R
Estee Lauder Double Wear (Ecru), Chanel Mat Lumiere (Clair 20), Simple Light Moisturizer, Revlon Photoready (Shell), MAC Fix +, Fyrinnae Primer, E.L.F Undereye Concealer,MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (Light Medium)

I change my foundation routine very little really. I'm lucky because found foundation that really works for me. My all time favourite is Chanel Mat Lumiere, The coverage and the finish are just perfect for me! But I'm currently using Estee Lauders Double Wear, Sometimes I find it a bit too matte so use a bit of Revlon Photoready mixed with it. One pump of each, The Lauder foundation doesn't have a pump with it so I use a MAC one. I always wear MAC Mineralize Skinfinish either on its own (Layed up with Fix+ makes it have a really nice light coverage) or as a overall face setting powder! I'm NW15 in MAC for reference, But I really don't like MAC Studio Fix Fluid, it smells funny and really oxidizes on my skin and I go mega orange!

Daily Makeup (Blush)
L-R
Topshop Cream Blush (Neon Rose), E.L.F Warm Bronzer, Lacura @ Aldi Blush, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (By Candlelight), E.L.F Studio Blush (Merry Berry)

My go-to blush at the moment is Topshops Neon Rose Cream Blusher, its really easy to apply and blend in, It drys to a powdery finish. Which is very lovely if you ask me! Its a perfect summer blusher. I really like a blush I randomly picked up from Aldi, It reminds me of Nars Orgasm (R.I.P! I dropped him!) Its a little lighter in color but for a couple of pounds you cant go wrong! By Candlelight Mineralize Skinfinish is my favourite when I want a subtle bit of color on the cheekbones! I don't often wear bronzer, Only when I go out at night, But I really like this E.L.F one because its cheap and does the job of giving a nice glow, I occasionally use them as shadows too.

Daily Makeup (Eyes)
L-R
Maybelline False Lash Effect, Rimmel Volume Express, NYX 24 Karat Eye Pencil, NYX Velvet Eye Pencil, NYX White Pearl Pencil, MAC Paintpot (Painterly), MAC Fluidline (Blacktrack), L'oreal Carbon Superliner

L'oreal Carbon Superliner is my all time favourite liner, Ive used it non stop for about 2 years now, Probably more thinking about it now. But its just so easy to use and apply! I wear flicked eyeliner everyday so this is the quickest and easiest thing to use! Its very black too and lasts me all day! I occasionally use Blacktrack but I really don't find it "black enough"! Does anyone else have that problem with some eyeliners!? I got a job-lot of NYX liners from eBay a while ago, (Sorry cant find the link! Just search for NYX Eyeliner lot) But I think I bought about 12 for around £7. They are really great and come in SO many colors! Velvet, 24 Karat and White Pearl are my usual for my waterline! I'm a bit of a mascara tart, I always buy new ones, But False lash effect is probably my favourite of all time! OH and I ALWAYS use Painterly paint pot on my lids before shadows, sometimes on its own too!

I wear fake eyelashes most days too. I know people think that's a tad obsessive/excessive/ridiculous but I really like the way they make my eyes look. I normally use Eylure Naturalites Eyelashes (101). I use them for about a week then throw them away and get a new pair. I did post a picture on my Twitter with me wearing some ridiculously long eyelashes for jokes, and I got so much hate on my formspring! They were from a job lot I got off eBay, for 40 pairs of lashes for around £4! Those are defiantly more going out lashes rather than my usual day to day ones But I do really like them! They arent real hair so I normally use them once and throw away.

I was going to post my shadows, glosses and lipsticks, But I change those pretty much daily so I don't really have a go to eye look. I have my favourite combination but no really go-to looks! I have loads of MAC eyeshadows, and I've just started depotting them all, Ive only done my neutral palette so far! As for lipsticks I'm a sucker for NYX Round Lipsticks, I have around 30-40! I think they are about $1.25 each (Again I got a couple of job lot off ebay, I think its around £20 inc shipping for 12 so they are super affordable and have an AMAZING selection of colors!

Well this is a much longer post than I initially hoped for and has ended up as a bit of babble! But I really hope it was useful to some people! Especially those who have been asking for something like this! And if you want to know anything about anything I've talked about let me know via the comments or email and Ill try and help! Makeup isnt really something I'd like to get into on my blog. As much as I love reading makeup blogs, I do find some very repetitive and a bit bland at times! LLYMLRS is about fresh, intresting and different content, not a review of something that has been sent to everyone and then systematically reviewed on everyones blogs! No offence to people who do stuff like that, Because I do like some of them, But theres only so many Xen-Tan reviews, Those free Benefit pencils with Glamour Magazine posts and "Hauls" I can tolerate!
