My everyday go-to make up routine - NYX & SMASHBOX


When you find yourself grabbing the same products day to day, you know you have got yourself a routine, and when that routine creates the most flawless look you know its time to share it with the world. 

My everyday make up takes literally ten minutes and is free from all the 'complicatedness' you usually get from similar tutorials. Lets face it, in the real world we really don't have time to sit in front of the mirror for 30 minutes every day. 

Base; 
Smashbox photo finish primer, Smashbox liquid halo foundation, I wear the shade 8 and sometimes mix in 9 for a better match to my skin tone, I have repurchased this foundation three times now, I love it but definitely not more then my NARS sheer glow so that is what I will be going back to soon. 




Conceal and Contour;
NYX Ultra concealer, I use this under my eyes and on the bridge of my nose just to highlight. Contouring is all very complicated so I just use the NYX Matte Bronzer in deep tan along my cheek bones, forehead and dust over my nose. I love this bronzer its super subtle and light on the skin. 
I also use NYX blush in 'Bronzed' over my cheeks, this blush is SUPER PIGMENTED so best to build it up on the cheeks but when applied correctly makes you look like a glowing goddess. 

Finishing Touches;
The rest is pretty simple, I use the Maybelline Max Black mascara, which I swear by! give my lashes as couple coats and then use the NYX dewy finishing spray to keep my make up in place all day.

I'm obviously in love with NYX and my collection is growing everyday, what's your go-to everyday make up routine?
