Hello everyone,

I am currently on the lookout to expand/ change my current makeup routine and was wondering what products you wear on a daily basis?

I use:

Max Factor Primer
Dior Forever Foundation (wouldn't recommend given the price and the outcome)
Revlon Concealer
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (not too keen)
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Collection Eye Brow Kit
Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner (hate)
Benefit Cosmetics Bad Girl Lash Mascara (hate)
Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick

What does everyone else use (as you can see I'm not too keen on current products, so I'm interested to know what everyone else uses!) ?smile

Mascara ( Smith & Cult Lash Dance Mascara)
Lipstick ( Dio Rouge Dior Satin)

No7 tinted moisturiser
No7 foundation
No7 concealer
No7 sensitive mascara

I've tried so many products I can't even wear Clinique anymore I had a reaction last time.

I think no7 are good value, and they use sp factor and are hypoallergenic if you have sensitive skin. 👍🏻

If I'm getting 'jazzed up' it'll be

Nars primer
Charlotte tilbury magic foundation
Anastasia highlighter
Nars orgasm blush
Benefit mascara
Bobbi brown eyeliner pot
Urban decay naked eyeshadow palette

ToastOfLondon Sun 29-Jan-17 21:10:14

Bobbi brown eye liner gel
Bobbi brown nude palette eyeshadow
Lancôme Hypnose mascara
Lancôme blush subtil rose paradis
Estée Lauder dynamic lipstick

KatieScarlett Sun 29-Jan-17 21:17:45

When I bother.
Bare Minerals primer, foundation, other powdery stuff, etc.
Lancome eyeshadow
Body shop mascara
Rimmel "it's a keeper 200" hmm lipstick.
Mostly I don't and just use the pink tin Vaseline on my lips. I get my eyebrows done every 4 weeks (tint and wax). I look better with make up on but usually go to the gym after work and don't like the thought of exercise with a dirty face.

MagicMojito Sun 29-Jan-17 21:17:57

Any moisturiser at hand
Doublewear foundation
Estee louder lip sheen
Black khol eyeliner
Soap and glory highlighter powder
Borjois eye shadow
Estee louder black mascara.

Frequently change it though, usually i just try different products that happen to be on offer. The only constants are the khol eyeliner and doublewear foundation smile

tinydancer88 Sun 29-Jan-17 21:19:18

Rimmel Match Perfection foundation
Collection 2000 concealer - so cheap but so good.
Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder
Maybelline Expert Wear blush
Maybelline Nudes palette eyeshadow
No7 brow powder
MaxFactor false lash effect mascara

Occasionally liquid eyeliner (just a pen-type Rimmel one) or MAC lipstick. I experiment occasionally with more expensive stuff but to be honest am perfectly happy with cheaper stuff (and it doesn't irritate my skin like bloody Estee Lauder Doublewear did and leave me red and blotchy for a week!)

Laralouie Sun 29-Jan-17 21:19:42

After years of using cheap stuff I more recently use.

YSL touché eclat foundation
Tried Estée Lauder double wear and that is lovely too.
Benefit hoola bronzer
Benefit primer
Body shop eye liner
Max factor mascara
Body shop lip and cheek stain
Benefit brow stuff
Soap and glory eyeshadow palette

MagicMojito Sun 29-Jan-17 21:19:58

Estée Lauder blush

Musicinthe00ssucks Sun 29-Jan-17 21:21:42

I'm a bit make up obsessed so I change things up all the time. Some of the things I am currently using are:
Base - Clinique Superpowder Double Face Powder (always this!)
Concealer - Collection one which is really thick and works brilliantly and very cheap
Eye primer - MUA
Eyeshadow - loads of different ones but, in my opinion, the Urban Decay shadows are amazing. I am also currently loving the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick, which is a cream shadow.
Eyeliner - Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eye pencil and Benefit Badgal for lower lash line
Mascara - Maybelline Collosal (the yellow and purple one)
Eyebrow pencil - Soap and Glory Archery
Blusher - MUA cream blush

Unicorndreamer Sun 29-Jan-17 21:22:24

KatieScarlett Sun 29-Jan-17 21:24:03

Double wear is great but my skin did not agree after a few goes. Ditto Clinique. Zit central on my combination skin. I get on much better with the powdery stuff, despite the faff.

Grilledaubergines Sun 29-Jan-17 21:27:08

Clinique foundation
Clinique bronzing powder
Clinique mascara
Clinique Chubby stick for eyes (2 green colours and a nude)
Clinique Chubby stick for lips (I have most colours, with various lengths left)

And that's it. Clinique for me all the way, as you can see.

PuppyMouse Sun 29-Jan-17 21:27:50

Maybelline mousse foundation, eyebrow wax crayon with Rimmel eyebrow pencil. Then I always curl my eyelashes and wear maybelline falsies waterproof one coat, diorshow iconic overcurl second coat, maybelline again third coat.

If I wear blusher it's Chanel - it's in a compact and is rose/English rose or something colour I think. Wish I could stand lipstick but it only ever seems to suit other people envy

IonaNE Sun 29-Jan-17 21:28:04

That's easy. None. Ever. smile

ThisIsNotARealAvo Sun 29-Jan-17 21:28:34
