My Every Day Makeup Look! + giveaway coming up!

Hey Guys ,
I've wanted to do this post for a while now but I always seem to be in too much of a rush to go out, before I have time to take photos of my look! Give or take a few shades, this is pretty much my every day makeup look!
I like to keep it pretty simple, with neutral tones on my eyes to make them look bigger, and a light pink lip so my face has a touch of colour, I'm a very pale person!

I'll put a post up soon with pictures explaining my makeup routine but for now I'll near enough just list what I use.
Primer: Collection 2000 - Primed & Ready Smoothing Primer
Foundation: MAC - Studio Fix SPF 15 in NW10 (told you I was pale!)
Concealer: Collection 2000 concealer in Fair
Powder: Rimmel - Stay Matte in Translucent
Bronzer: Mac - Bronzing Powder in Golden
Blusher: Mac - Ombre Blush in Azalea Blossom
Highlighter: Mac - Mineralised Skinfinish in Lightscapade
Brows: HD brows in Foxy

Quick Tips on how to make your eyes look bigger:
  • Make your eyeliner thicker in the centre of your eyes, giving them a more rounded look
  • Use a nude colour eyeliner on your waterline, to make your eyes look larger than they are
  • Use white eyeshadow around your inner tear duct to make them appear brighter
  • Don't use dark colour on your eyelids! Use light colours and only use dark shades in the crease and in the very outer corner of your eyes to create a shadow effect
Primer: Benefit - Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in My Brother's My Date
Eyeshadow: Sleek - Matts V2 / Urban Decay - Naked 2 Palette
Lashes: MAC - Plush Lash in Black / Benefit - They're Real
Eyeliner: Collection 2000 - Extreme 24 hour Felt Tip Liner in Black / Eyeko Skinny Liner in a Nude Pink Shade (not sure of the name!) 
I hate taking photos of my lips... This is my go-to combination at the moment! MAC's Speed Dial and  MAC's Summer Shower! For people asking what Summer Shower looks like... its this ^ yes, its bright green in the tube but its shows as a gorgeous shimmer on the lips!
So that's it, when I'm rushing around getting ready for work, and I've managed to leave enough time for me to put makeup on... this is what I go for! Cute and Simple! Hope you guys like my post!
