My Daily Makeup Routine ♡

Recently several people have asked me what order should they put there make-up on?
It is different for everyone and their routine, BUT in order to help I’m just going to tell you mine!

Of course, I am not a professional makeup artist, it is just what I have heard and what I personally do.
I wash my hands first as I often use my fingers to apply and rub in the products on my face. This is my personal preference, but you can also use a beauty cushion or brush.

As you know I tend to have dry skin so first I put on All Around Safe Block Essense Sun Milk but Missha, this moisturizes my skin and protects it from the sun and it’s harshness during the day.

Next I put on Benefit The Porefessional Primer to set my face ready for makeup!

Then I use, The Seam Cover Perfection Tip Concealer as I have REALLY obvious bags under my eyes, which I rub in with my fingers.

After that I use the CareZone Nordenau Water BB Cream to smooth out my skin, again with my fingers.

Next I use A’Pieu Moist Creamy Concealer as an extra concealer to hide those under eye bags of mine. This I leave to go slightly dry before I rub in as it gives a more even coverage.

Then I go to my eyes, if I’m wearing eye shadow I put that on first… but for daily life I put on my Liquid Eyeliner, I use a normal eyeliner brush to line the lid of my eye and then I go over it with my MAC liquid eyeliner.

After that comes my eyelash curler which I use to just angle my lashes, I normally hold each eye for 30 seconds! When I do this properly (AKA not in a rush) everyone compliments me on how long my eyelashes are so would definitely recommend this step.

Next is my Etude House Curl Fix Black Mascara, which has instructions of use on the box for the specific brush; followed by the Etude House Dr Mascara Volume up Fixer (pink and white NOT green and white) which fixes my mascara on. This is perfect as my eyelids are hooded so my mascara tends to smudge off. Since using it my mascara never comes of… HOWEVER make sure to have a good eye makeup remover if you use this.

Finally, I apply my Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer which just evens out my makeup, gets rid of those smudges from my eye makeup mistakes and gives me that final smoothed out look.

I set my under eyes with Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Pact and then use Too Cool for School Perfect Day Makeup Fixer to keep my look throughout the day!

I’ll put a Too Long Didn’t Read Version (TLDR) on my website just in case you ever need it again.. I hope my makeup routine is able to help someone somewhere! ♡

Laneige Pore Control BB Cushion ♡

Hello everyone,

After a mini break I’m back to let you know about my new favorite BB Cushion.

South Korea is the home of the BB Cushion, I think it originated here with Amore Pacific owning the only factories that make all the BB Cushions you see in Korea. Every makeup shop has it’s own version and they all use a different formula.

I have tried several BB cushions and I have finally found one which I am really happy with. ^^

The latest BB Cushion which I am very impressed with is Laneige Pore Control BB cushion.

I never really knew about warm tones and cool tones of skin; however watching a Laneige advert with their newly released colors I thought it might be good to try.

I purchased the Laneige Pore Control BB Cushion in the color 13C (Cool Ivory). Warm tones have the original names and the new cool tones have the word ‘Cool’ in front of them.

I was very surprised with the color. It matches my skin perfectly and my friends complimented the match saying it looked like I had no BB cushion on. I would definitely recommend it to cool toned girls… you can often see this tone because your veins are blue under your skin rather than green!

The color is perfect for me but I’m probably going to try a different cushion type as my pores aren’t really a problem. There are 3 cushion types by Laneige, such as Anti-Aging, Whitening and Pore Control.

I would definitely recommend giving it a try if you can!
