My Everyday Makeup Base

I thought I would share with you my everyday makeup base, the look that holds the rest of it down. I think the base of your makeup is the main important thing if you have a flawless base it's a great canvas to work on whether you're going all out bold makeup or super subtle. I rarely change my base up, I'm pretty happy with it right now and have been for a while I like a little subtle contour, a pop of highlight for a healthy glow and a base that will last all day!

If you would like to see the skincare I use, you can find that 'here
Foundation: Now I'm all hydrated I start with foundation - obvs! I'm currently using the Revlon Colorstay foundation because I heard so many good things about it! It is honestly as good as you've heard I don't know why I waited so long to use it! I have the colour Natural Beige and its perfect for when I fake tan, it lasts a decent amount of time and its a good decent coverage too!

Concealer: I am loving the L'oreal true match concealer in shade 1.N Ivory and I have been loving it for a while now, I don't really need much after the foundation to be honest so I use this just to brighten up my under eye.  I did use the MAC long wear concealer but with the Revlon foundation it's not really needed but this L'Oreal is perfect for brightening my eyes, its super creamy and blends seamlessly into the skin.

Setting Powder: I use the Hourglass Ambient lighting powder in the shade !!!!! I use a tiny amount just over my some of my face (not my cheekbones) to set the foundation and concealer a little bit, this is such a good powder for setting foundation without looking to matte, I like my base to be quite dewy so this does just that while making my foundation stay in place.

Contour: I then like to contour a little bit using the Too Faced contour palette. It's the perfect contour shade and you only need a tiny amount for daytime, a little goes a long way. This kit is actually really good I also love the highlight that's in here too and I usually use this too.

Highlight: As much as I love the highlight in the contour kit I use, I have recently fallen head over heels with the makeup revolution highlighter it is gorgeous it blends beautifully and the shade 'Champagne' is honestly stunning! 
Occasionally I put a tiny amount of the makeup revolution highlight powder on top just to keep it in place like I do the foundation. So I look super glowy, contoured and well...more polished.

Everyday Lip: This is part of the base right? I don't know but I love lip products more than any other  product. If I've got super dry lips or I'm on the go I have currently been using the Dr Pawpaw multipurpose soothing balm this makes my lips super super soft. If I'm opting for a lipstick then I usually reach for the Charlotte Tilbury lipliner in !!!!! and I just put MAC's pure zen lipstick on top! and that completes my base.

That is my full makeup base, that's the canvas I work with then I add eyeshadow sometimes or liner and some mascara and I'm good to go! 
Do you have a set routine for your base? I hardly change it up at all unless the season changes but right now this is my everyday base! What do you think?
