My Daily Routine

by - December 13, 2017

Hi, dolls!

At the beginning I wanted to say big thank you for all the nice comments under my first blog post and all the suggestions left what I should review. I will definitely be looking into reviewing the products you guys mentioned, so stay tuned for my next posts! For my first official review, I wanted to share with you guys my current, daily routine and all the makeup products that I am loving at the moment. I hope you enjoy this post and definitely don't forget to comment down below which product that I will be mentioning below is your favourite!


1. Primer - TOTAL MOISTURE Facial Cream by Benefit (48.2g) 
(£33 Debenhams)
 Suitable For Normal to Dry Skin

I fell in love with this facial cream because it makes my skin feel so soft, has a nice smell and I like to use it to prime my face. I do realise that the product itself is expensive (£33) but you do get a full size product (48.2g/1.7oz) which does last you a long time. There are smaller versions of this cream if you wanted to try it out but aren't willing to pay this much for it. I would definitely recommend it to anyone with dry skin because it fully moisturises your skin.


2. Eye Primer - Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Original) by Urban Decay (10ml) 
(£17 Urban Decay)


I focus on my eye makeup before doing my foundation. I set my eye lids with this eyeshadow primer before doing my eye makeup and believe me, it does a great job. My eyeshadows always stay in place after using this and if you're struggling with shadows not sticking to your eyelids or smudging during the day, this will save you!

3. Eyeshadow - Sweet Peach Palette by Too Faced (18x0.95g/18x0.03oz) 
(£39 Too Faced)


This palette is everything! The smell, the colours, I mean, it's amazing! It's my current favourite palette that I reach out for everyday and Too Faced is definitely my favourite brand at the moment too. 

4. Eyeliner - Tattoo Liner in the shade Trooper by Kat Von D (0.55ml)
(£16 Debenhams)



From the time I was around 16, I couldn't live without an eyeliner. I wouldn't leave the house without the perfect eyeliner, so believe me when I say I used a lot of eyeliners from different brands. None were as good as this one, and from the time I tried the tattoo liner from Kat Von D, I haven't reached for any other one. It's a waterproof eyeliner which is just perfect as my eyes tend to tear whether it's because of the sun or strong winds, so I always tend to smudge my eyes but this tattoo liner doesn't move from my eyes. Also, it's so easy to apply and makes it much easier to create the perfect line, I feel like lots of you would love it.

5. Mascara - Better Than Sex Waterproof by Too Faced (8ml)
(£23 Too Faced


If anyone is looking for a mascara that makes your lashes look longer and adds volume to it, then this is the perfect choice. Out of the two Better Than Sex mascaras, I personally prefer the waterproof one just because it keeps my makeup away from smudging, unlike the other one. Although the price is almost double comparing to mascaras from Maybelline, L'Oreal or Rimmel (usually around £10/£15) I honestly think it's worth its price because no mascara I have ever used before was this good. (Honestly!)


6. Foundation - L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Foundation in the shade Porcelain (30ml) (£10.99 Boots


I am a very pale girl, so it's really hard for me to find my perfect foundation shade that would suit my skin well and not make me look orange. The infallible foundation by L'oreal was the best match for me as it suits my colour and on top of it all it's considerably cheap. I hope to see more brands focus on their shade ranges in the future as it would make it definitely easier for me, as well as for other people, to find their perfect matches. 

7. Concelear - Lock-It Concelear in the shade White Out by Kat Von D (6.25g) 
(£20 Debenhams)


Just like with foundation, finding my perfect concealer shade is almost impossible as it's either too dark most times or too pink/orange. Using the white concealer from Kat Von D allows me to mix it with concealers to create my perfect shade. I do truly hope more brands focus on shade ranges for their complexion products!

8. Contour - Hoola Lite by Benefit (8.0g/0.28oz) 
(£24.50 Debenhams)


We finally got the Hoola bronzer in lite, meaning pale people like myself can finally use the really popular bronzer that everyone has been talking about. I love that they finally made a lighter shade and it's been my go-to ever since it came out.

9. Setting Powder - Translucent Setting Powder by Laura Mercier (29g) 
(£29 Selfridges)


This powder has truly become my holy grail. If I could only use one product for the rest of my life, it would be this loose powder right here. This powder sets your makeup at the same time as makes your skin look and feel so smooth, it's one of the best products in the beauty industry. 



10. Blush & Highlight - Mini Candlelight Glow in Rose Glow (Highlighter - 2.5g) & Mini Love Flush in So Happy Together (Blush - 2.0g) by Too Faced.  
(originally £33, now £22.11! Debenhams)



My mini version of these two products come from the BETTER TOGETHER collab between Too Faced x Kat Von D. This collab gave a mini version of Too Faced's highlighter and blush, which although are small, have been lasting me a long time because I don't crazy amounts of it on my face. From Kat Von D's side of the collab, I received two lipsticks, one liquid and one normal lipstick. This set also comes with the cutest beauty bag that has one pink Too Faced side with a dog on it and a cool black side with a cat on it from Kat Von D.

11. Lips - Color-sensational by Maybelline in the shade 630 Velvet Beige.
 (£6.99 Superdrug)



I have to honestly admit that although I own around 30 liquid lipsticks from Kylie Cosmetics, I still prefer Maybelline's lipsticks. It has a creamy finish and it's really pigmented and it's definitely worth its price.

12. Setting Spray - All Nighter by Urban Decay (118ml) 
(£23.50 Urban Decay)


I have not yet found a setting spray that would hold my makeup in place for longer than this baby has been doing. In my opinion, this is the best setting spray out there that I have ever tried and I would be interested to see if I could ever find one that replaces this one. Ps. I'm on my second bottle, as it truly makes difference to your makeup.

That's it for today, I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Let me know in the comments what your favourite products are from my list and what products you are using on a daily basis. 

Love, Olivia xo
