My Beauty and Makeup Routine

Clinique moisture surge thirst review face cream dry skin

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 :)

Dove silky moisturiser dry skin

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! 

Too faced better than sex mascara

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! :)

Garnier Micellar Cleansing water

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! :)

  18. I am one of the worst people to ask about makeup as I don't really wear that much. But I did enjoy reading about your beauty products. I really want to start using that Argan oil in my hair. I think it would help in the winter here. I really want to try that mascara as well. Thanks for the recommendations!

  21. This was a lot of fun to read! I used to use argan oil on my hair, but I forgot it. My hair routine is pretty easy. Your make up routine seems similar to mine. Most of the time my make up is quite simple.

    Great video! I'm not sure could I ever do that to my hair, I'm not that hand coordinated:) I do, however, blow dry my hair myself, but I don't have a hair iron/ curler at home so I never tried that.

  22. I loooove Clinique- such a great brand!
    Thanks for sharing, lady!
