Makeup Of The Day #2

So let me start off by introducing you to this new blog post! If you haven't read my previous one you can check it out here. So basically I just wanted to update you with my makeup of the day, now this changes a lot but this is what I've been using for the past week and I love all the products so much and they work amazingly together!

So my for the base I haven't been using a primer, I use the MaxFactor All day flawless foundation as I think this one works well and it claims to be a 'primer, concealer and foundation all in one' so that is the reason I don't use a primer, and with most full coverage foundations, this one is one, I find they last me a lot longer than lighter coverage foundations/ bb creams.

Next for my base I then use the Seventeen 'define and conquer' contour kit and I just use the contour bronze-y shade to bronze up my face, although I'm not contouring heavily as the shade is a little light for my skin tone. I then use the same palette/kit and use the highlighter shade on my temples, so around the top of my head, above my cheekbones, on the top of my lips, down my nose and on my chin. And I just do this which makes the bronzer pop a lot more, which I need as it's slightly lighter than my skin and doesn't show up as well, it'll be a great contour palette for pale skin so if you're wanting to try one it's super for £5.99! But my sleek one is my most favourite contour kit ever which can be bought from Boots and Superdrug stores or on the Sleek Website which is only about a pound or less more! 

For my eyes as a base I use the Mac Prolong wear paint pot in painterly, which is amazing as a base and on it's own I don't know how an earth I lived without it before?!?! I love it as a base for eye shadow's as it gets rid of excess oils or moisture you may have on your eyelids and preps them for eye shadow which goes on a lot smoother with this paint pot! But on it's own it is a natural shade, that just covers up veins you may have visible on your eyelids.
So I then used my Naked 2 Basics Palette from Urban decay which just has the prettiest natural eye shadows that are perfect for me on a daily basis as the first two shades can look like your not wearing any eye shadow at all, but they still look really nice and complement my skin tone well. For my Makeup of the day I have been using the colours: Skimp on the lid, and in the crease I have been loving using Primal which just adds a bit of definition, but doesn't look to harsh with my other makeup on too.
For Mascara I use the Maybelline Lash Sensational which is just my FAVE! It seems to work better than any other drugstore mascara I've used adds so much length to my lashes, and adds volume but not too much, so it still looks natural and doesn't clump! Which is my favourite thing about it as I don't feel it looks like I'm wearing mascara and my lashes could be mistaken for false lashes!

For Lips my favourite-ist part of makeup haha! I have been using daily this week without fail at all, is the Mac Lipstick in Velvet Teddy, which I'm sure every beauty blogger has heard of as to be honest it's probably the most popular Mac lipstick of 2015, but it's the loveliest and most classy looking lippy I have come across I just feel as sassy and sophisticated when I use it and that makes me love it even more!

Do you use any of these Makeup products in your MOTD?! If so or if not tell me in the comments below I'd love to know!
