New makeup routine and haul

Back in the middle of December I completely changed my makeup routine as I was fed up with using the same products and I feel like my skin was getting quite bad. So one night I went on a massive superdrug haul!

My first purchase was the Maybelline baby skin instant fatigue blur in warm apricot. This honestly leaves my skin so smooth and helps me apply my foundation. What I also like about this product is for those days when you don’t want to wear any makeup I just put a bit of this on and it just makes me look a bit more awake!

The next thing I decided to switch up was my foundation, I used to love my Rimmel matching perfection but the last few months I have just hated the way it looks and felt on my skin. I’m not sure why but I knew I needed a change so I decided to go for the L’oreal Infallible 24hour matte foundation. I am seriously in love with this foundation and I’m so glad I got it! I love the way it feels on my skin it doesn’t feel heavy and it makes my skin look really nice. Another thing I like about it is that it is a full coverage which means I don’t actually need concealer which is a pro in the morning as anything that speeds up the makeup process is a winner!  

To apply my foundation I used to use a buffing brush but in my little (actually rather big haul) I brought myself the real techniques complexion sponge. I find this works best when it is damp as it gives a really nice flawless finish. The only downside is it is a nightmare to clean!

Next up was Tanya Burr’s rosy flush cheek palette. I mainly only use the blush (Pretty Peony) and the highlight (Oyster Shell) and I love how natural it looks. It gives the perfect amount of product and adds a really subtle highlight, which I love. I also use a bit of the blush sometimes as an eye shadow and the highlighter under my brow. Then for mascara I just use the Maybelline the falsies.

Then to set that all in place I use the L’oreal Infallible fixing mist, which works really well. It also means I don’t need to use any powder which I like. I have been loving this new combination of products and my skin has been a lot better aswell.
