Hey everyone! I hope you're all well and you had a good week :) Mine's been pretty much the same as last week.. I'm still extracting DNA.. I've figured out that I will need to do it for 7 weeks to get through all the samples.. oh dear haha! Today I thought I would share with you some of my beauty and makeup products. Now, I'm quite rubbish with makeup.. for my everyday makeup I only wear eyeliner and mascara.. and then I only do a full face if I'm going clubbing or to a party where I then don't go for a subtle look haha! So because I hardly wear other makeup it lasts me forever and I'm not too adventurous with my choices so if you can recommend anything that would be great! :)
I shared a bit of my haircare routine in my Evening Routine video, but basically I wash it every few days (because I'm lazy and hairwashing and drying takes forever) and then when it's damp I brush through it and put some argan oil in it. I love how this smells and it doesn't leave my hair feeling greasy which is nice. Then to be honest, if I'm leaving my hair naturally I don't tend to brush it until after I've washed my hair again *shock horror* but otherwise my hair goes crazy, or at least that's what I tell myself :) And then obviously if I'm going to style my hair for special occasions I will brush it then :)
Usually every morning and evening I will moisturise my face, especially over winter as I have dry skin. I love this Clinique moisturiser, it really works for my skin as my skin is super fussy XD I had the gift set sized sample previously and I was planning on buying the full sized one once it ran out and then I got it for Christmas which was really nice! And then this eye cream came along with it so I've been using that too and I feel like a grown up haha!
I don't moisturise the rest of me as often as it's long and boring but at the moment I'm using this Dove one :)
Before I use heat on my hair I use a heat protector. I've pretty much always used V05 products and so I tend to stick to them and I like that they're pink haha! I'll then either straighten it or curl it and then put some texturising spray into my roots for a bit of volume as my hairs quite heavy as it's long :)
For everyday makeup I don't put anything on my face as I'm quite happy with how my skin looks so I don't mind. If I'm doing a full face of makeup I will use foundation, concealer and a translucent powder to cover my pink cheeks. I'll then use bronzer although I want to buy a new one but there are too many to choose from! I don't know if it's just me.. but I mainly wear face makeup to cover my pinkness so I don't want to add more on in the form of blusher :') So I usually skip out this step haha!
On my eyes I use liquid eyeliner and mascara. I'm quite lucky in the sense that mascara takes to my eyelashes well so I usually buy cheap ones. At a blogging event I received the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara and I really like it and I love the packaging. I think it's a good mascara however I haven't tried others around that price range so I don't really know how it compares haha :')
And then everyday I will wear deodorant and perfume. I like this deodorant and I've used it since I can remember really! I've tried all the scents but this one is my favourite and at the moment I'm using this perfume from Zara, I like sweet smelling and strong perfumes especially over the winter so I picked this one up and it was quite cheap too! :)
And then finally at the end of the day I take off my makeup and currently it's been with Garnier Micellar water :)
So that was pretty much everything that I use! Let me know if you have any recommendations, especially for lipsticks as I don't even know where to start haha! I hope you have a lovely week! :)
I did a Valentine's Day GRWM video if you fancied giving it a watch! :)
