My Everyday Makeup Products & Routine

Everyday makeup primer

Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

I have loved this primer for about ⅘ years. It is so velvety and allows your foundation to glide on and last for the entire day. Love love love this primer! Primer is used before putting on your foundation and after putting on your moisturizer. Your makeup will last longer with primer. It is not a must but it definitely makes a difference.

Hourglass everyday makeup products and routine

Everyday makeup sponge

BeautyBlender Pro

Beautyblender is a sponge that I use to apply and blend my concealer and foundation. It gives a beautiful finish & makes application so easy. I wet the blender then dab the concealer/foundation to apply (don’t drag the foundation).

There are cheaper versions of the blender available, however for me, this blender gives the best finish and you pay for quality. Some of the cheaper Beauty Blender knock offs really absorb your foundation into the sponge, wasting product.

Everyday makeup concealer

Too Faced Born This Way Sculpting Concealer

I love the texture of this concealer. It is buildable and really gives great coverage particularity under my eyes.

Everyday makeup foundation

Dior Face and Body Foundation 

I love the consistency of this foundation. It is so light, lasts throughout the day and does not cake. It looks really natural and is buildable for more coverage.

 Armani Neo Nude Foundation (UNBELIEVABLE!)

My absolute favorite foundation I ever tried is the Armani Beauty Neo Nude. It transforms me in the morning. It is like no other foundation that I have ever tried. It also has hyaluronic acid in the formula which is great for hydrating the skin.

Everyday makeup translucent powder 

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

Setting your makeup is essential to ensure that it lasts throughout the day. I have been using this setting powder for years and it keeps any shine at bay and ensures my foundation is set for the day.

This product is also perfect for touching up during the day. I often get a shiny forehead as have an oily t-zone so a quick powder and I am as fresh as the morning.

Everyday makeup contour

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit

This is one of my hero products and it lasts so long! Anastasia Beverly Hills is one of my favorite beauty brands for contouring and brows. This palette has six shades; three for highlighting & three for contouring.

Top tip: can be used as eyeshadow too when traveling to minimize products.

Everyday makeup bronzer

Benefit Hoola Matt Bronzer

This bronzer is an all time favorite bronzer. Benefit Hoola bronzer is on all top bronzer lists as it is a true hero product. Perfect for popping in your handbag on the go.

Everyday Highlighter 

Saie Liquid Highlighter 

I use highlighter sometimes and whenever I do, I largely reach for the Saie Highlighter (LOVE this collection). It is very buildable from a light shimmer to a glowing goddess look.

Ilia Liquid Serum

I also love Ilia products and their serum highlighter is really good. This bottle will last ages!!

Top tip: you can also add a little to the inner corner of your eye to brighten up any darkness.

Everyday makeup blush

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Cheek Blush

Another product that I have loved for years. Anything Charlotte Tilbury is amazing. I love these blushes. This blush is a classic blush, is suitable for every day wear and lasts throughout the day.

Everyday makeup eyebrow 

Benefit Brow Microfilling Eyebrow Pen

This eyebrow pencil is so easy to use so it the perfect everyday make up product. I have blond, very faint eyebrows so need to pencil in my eyebrows each day. T

This everyday makeup eyebrow product lasts for ages and gives me a full, defined brow each morning. It was in development for four years at Benefit and it was worth it!

Everyday makeup products that are easy to use and worth it

Everyday Makeup Eye Shadow Products & Routine

I use a couple of different eye shadow palettes, however I always generally go with a natural brown eye. I love these palettes for every day eye looks and also really glam evening looks.

Everyday makeup mascara

 YSL Mascara

I have been using the YSL Lash Clash extreme mascara which makes my eyelashes appear so long and defined. I love the wand on this mascara and it makes my lashes look volumized. I also love the packaging on this everyday mascara.

Mascara is one of the products that I absolutely love changing up and I have lots of favorites. You can read a recent blog post on my top 7 favorite mascaras for volume as I love them all.

Everyday makeup setting spray

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray

This setting spray sets my makeup perfectly and it lasts throughout the day. Charlotte Tilbury products are really worth every penny for me. You could use this or the Laura Mercier powder above. You don’t need both.

Everyday makeup lipstick

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Matte Revolution Lipstick- Pillow Talk Collection 

One of the most amazing lipsticks that I have ever tried. I love the consistency, color and long lasting product. I reach for this most days and always have it in my handbag for a little touch up mid day. The lipliner in pillowtalk makes this the perfect combo.

Everyday makeup lip balm


It’s perfect for hydrating the lips and plumping.

These everyday makeup products are some of my favorites which I have been using for years (Anastasia Beverly Hills contour palette) and others are newer (Bite foundation).
