Daily Makeup Routine // Minimal Look

I need to confess something to you: I don't wear makeup on a daily basis. I've always said I'm the kind of girl who doesn't wear alot of heavy make up, but I actually don't really wear makeup every single day of the week. 

Having lived with my grandparents whilst growing up, I was introduced to make up way later than most girls were. Of course, as any other teenager I got given products here and there, but they were usually things that I had no idea what to with and so, I didn't really pay much attention to them. I think the first time I got a proper makeup item, it was my very beloved Estée Lauder single eyeshadow (that I still very much use, and can't ever see myself without). I was only 21.

Did I need to use makeup? Yes I did - I've always had acne prone skin, and I grew up with pimples all over my face while not really taking care of it as well as I should have. Because of that, I now have alot of scars and dilated pores - that I'm hopefully doing a better job of taking care of nowadays.

But anyway, this means I grew up used to not wearing any makeup. So, on a day to day basis, I don't wear all kinds of items on my face. I like to keep it simple, and I like to make it even easier to take off at night.

Don't get me wrong, I love makeup and I truly think no woman ever owns enough makeup - ever. And I've learnt alot these past two years, but there's still alot to learn and alot to experiment with. This is something I'm quite passionate about. Moreover, there's really never enough knowledge, right? I do want to make it my mission to keep showing you the progress as I go and I also have an all steps makeup routine that I'll be posting on this blog in the future. 

For example, I don't wear foundation on a daily basis - preferring to use a BB Cream, as generally, it's a moisturizer, primer and concealer all in one. And it gives me the perfect glow. Plus, it has SPF. What more could I ask fo, for an easy go-to look?

While I know my brows need a bit more of attention, I'm used to having them like this. And so, I much prefer to go with a brush-on fiber gel that volumizes my brows, making them look quite natural.

My lips are the part of my face that never look the same, and I don't have a daily lipstick or lipgloss that I find myself going back to. Certainly, there are a few colours that are my preferred choices, such as red and pink, but I don't feel like I have found MY lipstick yet. On this particular day, I felt like using a red lipgloss. 

I truly do feel that something as simple as my routine can actually make a huge difference to how I feel about myself, and this confidence will in turn make me more productive throughout the day. 

But without further-a-do, here is a rundown of the products that make its way onto my face, allowing me to create an easy, everyday look.

*** I can't find the right colour eyeshadow anywhere, as I think it was limited edition, but I think this one is pretty similar. And I'm pretty in love with it myself.

*** I can't find the last two in any stores either, but I've provided links with similar items.

What are your go to day to day products? The ones you you always find yourself going back to? Let me know, I'd love to hear from you.
