Current make up routine

These are the products that I tend to use most days. Unfortunately I am not able to wear much eye makeup as I currently have eczema on my eyelid :( therefore this is a pretty simple look, but it gives you an idea of what my "base" looks like.

- Garnier Caffeine Anti-dark Circles 2-in-1 Roll-on in Fair I think
- MAC Strobe Liquid Lotion
- Smashbox Photo Finish Bronzing Primer
- Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in B30
- Max Factor Smooth Effect Foundation in Natural 50
- Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair and Medium
- Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder in 51
- Benefit Coralista
- Naked Urban Decay Palette
- No7 Extravagant Lashes Mascara
- Kiko Luxurious Lashes
- Missguided MissLed Lip Splash in Caramel (not in picture)

All of this achieves this look:

Oh wow, how hard is it to get a decent photo! I have come to learn I hate posing for a photo by myself! Ah well, I hope its not too bad.

I am in desperate need of a new mascara, does anyone have any recommendations?


  1. If you have a Kiko near you, definitely Ultratech mascara. Or Maybelline define & volume!

  2. I use the Creamy Ivory 45 one of the Max Factor Smooth Bases - love how pale these ones are! Sucks about the eyelid eczema; I can't wear eyemakeup 'cause my eyes tend to go itchy, puffy and sore when I use any type of removal product near my eyes, gah!! x

  3. looks beautiful!xx

  4. Lancome Hypnose mascara is my all time fav x

  5. Thanks for the suggestions, I am going to take a look at them both :) xx

  6. You look gorgeous, Carissa! I've been debating whether or not to get Coralista-it looks amazing but is so expensive.

  7. Maybelline Falsies is a definite favorite of mine. Highly recommend it!

  8. Thank you all for the lovely comments and suggestions, very helpful!

    @Courtney, I would definitely recommend it! It's such a pretty colour, I agree it is expensive though :(

  9. Dunno whether anyone else has suggested this one but MaxFactor False Lash Fusion mascara is the besttt one i've ever tried, and i'm always trying new ones! haha i'm an addict! It's a bit pricier than normal drugstore brands but so worth it :)
    Your skin is absolutely flawless by the way!

  10. I love the finish look, I use the garnier eye roll on too, I love it! Your skin also looks amazing!

  11. This is such a pretty look! I use and love the l'oreal volume million lashes mascara, I would defo recommend it!! xx

  12. I love all these products! Coralista is one of my favourite blushes. And i love the chanel foundation :)


  13. I don't wear make up that often, but when I do, the first thing I always pick up is my Naked pallet. I had been wanting it for months, but never found a reason to justify the price (considering I only ever wear make up about three times a month). Anyway, one Sunday morning, after a drunken night before, I decided to go shopping, and my hungover/possibly still drunk alter-ego convinced me to buy it! I didn't regret it, because I had been wanting it for ages, but after the first time I used it, I did regret not buying it sooner!
