The Constants In My Routine

best everyday make up
I'm forever sharing seasonal picks, new finds and latest releases - but what about the ones not on rotation?
These are the gems - the constants in my routine. Ones that I couldn't be without!

A staple for me since the very original formula/packaging, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is my everyday go-to base. I'm yet to find a better - affordable foundation! It's everything I want in a base - light on the skin, medium, radiant coverage with a few skincare benefits - vitamins C, E and B5 thrown in for good measure. One that I never stray too far from, this dreamy foundation is always in my make up bag!

For skincare, the Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream is a firm favourite. With hyaluronic acid, coconut, cucumber, rosehip and lemon peel oils it works to diminish my (very) stubborn dark circles. It brightens, tightens and reduces puffiness, leaving the whole eye area feeling fresh and hydrated all day!
The tinted version is great for natural/no make up, make up days too - if you don't need a lot of coverage.

A light dusting of the gorgeous Nars Orgasm over the cheekbones seems to pair well with each season, every look. A warm pink hue with a divine golden sheen, it gives a wash of light and radiance to the complexion. Saturated and buttery soft, this blends seamlessly for a flawless finish.
It's one of the most flattering blushes that I own, and one that I reach for daily!

Eyeliner is something that I'm super picky about, I like it to be the deepest black, long lasting, fairly resilient against tears, hayfever... as tough as possible without compromising on pigmentation, brush type and texture. The Loreal Black Lacquer Superliner works perfectly for me - the wand is the ideal shape, it lasts all day without budging and the shade is super black. I've dabbled with fine-liners and felt tip types in the past, but nothing works as well for me!

I tend to chop and change my Lipsticks with the weather and seasons, but the Nyx Soft Matte Cream in Cannes is always close to hand. One that I reach for constantly, it's the ideal warm rose that's comfortable on the lips, applies like a dream and sets in place for hours and hours. An instant repurchase if ever misplaced! 

Lastly, the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel is divine - it's so worth the hype. A dreamy, pink gel that transforms into a silky oil as you massage onto the skin, it works to leave the complexion radiant, smooth and hydrated. My go-to to combat dull, lacklustre skin with deep cleansing pumpkin enzymes, softening and restorative vitamins it perks up tired skin and leaves skin so, so soft!

What are the constants in your routine?
