Updated makeup routine

Today I thought I would share with you my everyday current makeup routine, I posted one of these a while ago on my blog, but it has changed a lot since then so I thought I would post an updated one.

The foundation I have been using recently is the Revlon Colorstay Foundation, this was the first foundation I ever bought when I first started wearing makeup and I loved it and still to this day I do. I feel like it gives me the perfect amount of coverage that I need and the finish is flawless and not cakey, which I feel happen to a lot of foundation on my skins these days.

For concealer, recently I have been using a mixture of the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer and the MAC Pro-long wear concealer, I love both these concealer on their own but together they give the most amazing coverage.

For contour, I have been using the Nude by Nature contour palette the shade on the left is the most perfect contour shade and gives the best illusion of definition to your face. I also like to use the middle shade to bronze my face, all three shade are matte which I like for the contour and bronzer however, and the matte highlighter is not my favourite. For highlight however, I use the MAC Mineralised Skin Finish in the shade Soft & Gentle, this highlight gets spoken about all the time and I understand why, I’ve used this highlighter for a while now and any other one just doesn’t compare. It gives you the most perfect glow.

For my eyebrows I have recently started using the Soap & Glory Brow archery, it is so quick and easy and gives your brow the most natural look. I use the shade ‘Brownie Points’ and it is the perfect shade for my eyebrows.

For my eyes I do change my eyeshadow up most days but the two palettes I have been loving recently is the Revolution Redemption palette in Iconic Elements, I love this palette because all the eyeshadows expect for one are matte, as recently I have been getting back into just wearing matte eyeshadows. The second eyeshadow is by Stila in the shade 'kitten' as it is the perfect inner corner highlight.

For lips, I have been using the NYX Lingerie Liquid lipstick in the shade ‘bedtime flirt, 08’, I love NYXX lip products as I feel for the price they are they are really good quality. This shade is a perfect everyday lip colour for me and I like how it dries matte.  The only downside to this lipstick is that it is a little bit sticky if you apply a little too much so that’s something to look out for. 

I hope you enjoyed reading my blog!

Autumn (OOTD: Basic)

Autumn is by far my favourite time of year. I love the colours of autumn and I think autumn fashion is also my favourite; thick jumpers and scarfs. 

Me and one of my friends decided to make the most of autumn and the lovely weather, so we went for a walk. My outfit consisted of a black denim skirt from missguided (£18), a black turtle neck from primark. I also got my scarf from primark and it was also only £4. Then finally my boots are from Zara (£29.99), I especially like these, as I have been looking for some everyday ankle boots for ages. I thought these were perfect as they are a little bit different as they have cut outs and a buckle so there is more to them than other just ankle boots; they are definitely going to be worn a lot this season. 

 As much as I miss summer, I am loving the cold nights, leaves falling off the trees and wearing scarfs and coats.
What is your favourite season? 

Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed!

P.s. I know it has been a while since I posted on this blog or on my instagram (@bxckymxrris), mainly due to personal reasons but also because back in September I started at university to study Digital Marketing which has been pretty full on, so it has taken me a while to organise my time so I have time for everything. So thanking for sticking around to still read my blog! I promise to post more frequently and be more active on my instagram.

High-end Beauty Haul

Today I thought I'd share with you some of the makeup products I have been purchasing recently. So recently I went on holiday to Spain and I bought back some euros so I thought I would treat myself towards some new makeup bits.

Whilst on holiday, my friend took her NAKED 3 palette with her and I used it a couple of times and I fell in love, it is such a pretty palette. When this palette first came out I was not interested as I normally go for more brown toned neutrals but since I used this, my opinion changed completely and I have used this every day since I got it. This palette is pretty pricey, but the quality is amazing and I also ordered it from Feel Unique meaning I got student discount, which is always a bonus.

In duty-free on the way home, there was a MAC stand and I noticed they had the prolong wear concealer so I thought I would pick it up as I have been looking at this concealer for a while. I picked up the shade NC15. From my experience of this concealer so far it is amazing and has such good coverage. As I loved the concealer so much I thought I would order the foundation as I have been looking for a full coverage foundation that I can use when I need more coverage. I ordered this online from MAC and received one of the sample Prep + Prime primer which I also love dearly.

Whilst browsing Feel Unique I came across the brand nude by nature, which is an Australian mineral makeup brand and a lot of it was on sale so I thought I would try some of their products. The first thing I got was the Luminous sheer liquid foundation, I have yet to try this product but the packaging from this brand is lovely. 

The second thing I bought was the contouring palette you get a contour shade, a bronzing shade, and a highlight. All three are matte and highly pigmented. So far I have been loving this product it is the perfect palette for contouring and highlighting and so far would highly recommend this product. The rose gold packaging for this product is beautiful.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed! Also, I apologise for not posting in a while, but I hope to be back on track to posting regularly.
