I have had a lot of you lovely ladies asking me what make-up I use, so I wanted to share with you my favourite beauty products that I use almost every day. I’m not one for wearing loads of make-up, I always feel and look better with a more natural look. I don’t own any contouring palettes as I wouldn’t know where to start, and I’m pretty old school when it comes to applying make-up. I have linked all the products below that created this look in the photo above.

My favourite product at the minute is the Christian Dior Dream Skin, which is what I put on my face after cleansing. Its a pink serum that immediately smooth’s fine lines and pores, and is a great base for your foundation.

I then use Christian Dior Capture Totale Fluide foundation in No.22 This is a great foundation, it covers all blemishes and evens out skintone, I always apply this with a beauty blender by dabbing the foundation all over until even.

I always use an under eye brightener, and my favourite one at the minute is the Benefit Ooh La La which is an instant brightener for bags! I apply this under the eyes and under the eyebrows, dabbing with my finger.

I then use the Benefit Hoola bronzer all over my face for a natural tan look, its a matt bronzer so has no shimmer which I like. I apply this with a big soft bronzing brush.

The best blusher around has got to be the Benefit Galifornia, its a sunny pinky peach blush that gives you such a natural glow. I pop it just on the apples of my cheeks for a rosy glow.

My eyeshadow is one that ive been using for years and it immediately brightens my eye, its the MAC matt eyeshadow in Gesso. (will have to get a new one very soon) I apply this to the lids and just underneath my bottom lashes for brightness. It always makes my eyes look brighter and awake.

For my eyebrows I just lightly go over them with Loreal paris brow artist pencil in dark brown. I have quite big eyebrows so I don’t need a lot of product.

This eyebrow pencil is great and is not expensive at £5.99 http://www.boots.com/loreal-paris-brow-artist-eyebrow-pencil-10154566

The one and only mascara that gives me the false eyelash effect is the Christian Dior Diorshow mascara in black. It has a big brush and is easy to apply. I always apply 2 coats.

The lipstick I’m using at the minute is the MAC Patentpolish Lippencil in colour Hopelessly Devoted. Its a great colour for day or night, and is really moisturising on the lips too.

So I’m pretty simple when it comes to make-up but I also think that less is more. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.

Wishing you a lovely day, Joanna x
