How to Basic – Everyday Makeup

Hi Makeup Lovers! How are you this sunday evening? 🙂

Since I started this blog I have visited other blogs for ideas and inspiration. I have written down a few tips and tricks and updated my blog schedule. If you have a blog, you might know how it is when you suddenly have no motivation at all. But, thanks to my readers I feel motivated again! YAY!

In this post I will talk about how to do everyday makeup, what kind of products I recommend to use and some other tips!


Here you see all my “basic” makeup products, I usually buy brands like Bobbi Brown, MAC, Smashbox etc. I also buy my eye shadow kits, concealer kits on Ebay.

IMG_4721I love this concealer kit, perfect to highlight areas in your face 🙂 I am going empty soon, so I have to order some new ones, but they only cost 3-5 pounds per kit. I am thinking about selling similar concealer kits in my shop when it comes up! Would that be of any interest? Let me know!


For basic makeup I use light foundation, pressed powder, lash curler, lipliner and primer!

♥ Smashbox Primer

For best coverage I use a primer before applying my foundation. This is also for your makeup to last longer, you can buy the primer here

♥ Bobbi Brown Foundation 

I love this one, perfect if you have very sensitive skin and want a foundation that last. I don’t know how many Bobbi Brown foundations I have laying around. It’s truly a good buy! You find it here 

♥ Concealer Kit 

You should always have a concealer kit available, its the perfect bag item and it’s recommended if you suddenly need a quick fix. You can use it on your lips, over your eyes, under your eyes and wherever you want. You can buy it on Ebay.

♥ Makeup Pressed Powder

I bought this one from one pound shop and you can see it’s been very useful. I have to grab a new one when I can! This powder is perfect for highlights under your eyes and also gives you good coverage after foundation. You can read about how I use it in my contouring routine here

♥ MAC Lash Curler 

Omg, this one is a truly lifesaver! If your eyes need a little push and if you want big beautiful lashes this one is number one tool. I know HM have very cheap ones, but it always either break my lashes or the black rubber thing falls off. So irritating! So I bought this one from MAC, it was absolutely worth every single penny! You can find the curler here

Lipliner from MAC 

I use this lip liner for drawing my lips a little bigger, it’s perfect if you want your lipstick to look even better on you. You find it here

♥ Lipsticks from MAC

I love all the shades and colors from MAC. For everyday makeup I use Satin and Creme sheen. For my next buy I am thinking about buying a more Drastic and Gothic color.

You can buy more lipsticks under

    I’d love to get a concealer kit but I don’t trust the cheap ones, they’re full of nasty chemicals. I do love that Smashbox primer though
