My Foundation and Brow Routine

So... make up...
Even though I'm really into them, I don't always follow routines. This is more like what make up I wear if I want full coverage - the look I'd go for for special events. The bare minimum; concealer and powder. My essentials. But, today, I shall present to you how I like to hide my entire collection of imperfections with most of my face make up and how I fix up those brows, and will display shocking before and after photos.


Me with zero make up (it's alright if you gasped)
1. After moisturising, primer is the way to go, especially an instant pore eraser that has a lovely texture, like Maybelline's Baby Skin.
2. I'm attempting to get into the habit of putting on eye-makeup first, but since I wasn't doing my eyes here, I moved on to eye brows. One product is all I need! Maybelline's Brow Drama Brow mascara. I like my eye-brows natural and just need to tame them to get them the way I want. I'm not a fan of filling them in heaps; looks too... artificial... on me anyway.
3. Conceal the spots and under eye circles is what I do next, with my trusty Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer.

4. Now it's time for the actual foundation! I'm loving these two; the MAC Face and Body Foundation and the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. High end vs. high street; which is better? Since I've only had the Rimmel foundation for only a few weeks, I haven't got a full impression yet, but so far, they both seem very alike, in a great way! Light and dewy - my preference precisely! I blend my foundation with my Real Techniques face brush.
5. For my make up to last all day long, the Rimmel Stay Matte powder does just the job. I pat it all over my face with my Real Techniques powder brush.
6. As an addition, Girl Meets Pearl by Benefit is gorgeous. With my fingers, I dab it on the apples of my cheeks for a bit of a glow!



  1. Your eyebrows are really great! Don't ever change them!!

  2. Might need to start using that primer! Great post!
