The Current Face

Hi everyone, I thought I would do a quick post showing you the makeup I use on a daily basis. I have a pretty early start for work (6am!!!!) so I have condensed the products I use down to the essentials and have got applying a full face of makeup quickly down to a fine art. It usually takes about 5-6 minutes. 
For Primer I use the Clinique City Block Sheer, it's a sunscreen and primer in one, I'm all for these dual purpose products. It is oil free which I love and it does make my foundation last a lot longer.
I started my working life with foundation but quickly realised it took too much time so swiftly moved onto my favourite product, the BB cream. This is the oil free one from Garnier and it is superb. A lightweight formula that gives enough coverage, doesn't dry out my skin and gives a healthy glow. My current tube is about to run out so I am making a bee line for Superdrug to stock up!
You'll notice that I haven't included a powder and that's because I don't need one, by using an oil free primer and BB cream my face has a nice glow without looking oily. It's fantastic as it's one less thing I need to do in the morning!
Bronzer is still the same, Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel, it's a beautiful cream bronzer that I apply with my Real Techniques stippling brush. I only need a small amount to give me a sun kissed glow. I use this product all year round and although it comes with a hefty price tag I am so glad I splurged because it's the only bronzing product I use.
My blusher changes quite frequently but currently its Cedar Rose from Lancome. It's just a nice natural colour for every day wear. 
For my eye look I always mix a few colours together from my Too Faced Naked Eye palette. All these colours compliment each other so I don't have a set look I go for. 
Mascara is the Covergirl lash blast fusion, I got sent this in a swap from the USA so unfortunately I'm unable to repurchase this. However, it is an amazing mascara and I am really enjoying using it.
For my brows I am still using my Clinique superfine liner in soft brown. This is my 3rd one and it's just amazing! That's all there is to say.
Finally for lips I always prep them with a blistex lip balm. This is super duper moisturising and I wouldn't be without it now (In my opinion its better than carmex or vaseline) To top it off I use Creme Cup lipstick from MAC. Just a beautiful mid toned pink that compliments everything.

I hope you've enjoyed this post, I may try to do one of these every few months.
What are your staple makeup products???
