Okay. I am really scared. I am horrible with make up. I always end up looking like a clown when I use eye shadow. But I do love to do my own make up and wear pretty lipsticks. So I am doing a beauty post about my daily make up routine. Are you ready?

I always start with a concealer, usually a cheap one from Essence or Catrice. After that I use my compact powder from Kiko. And after a really short night I put some concealer up after the powder again. I don’t dark eye bags!

I also love to shape my face. Starting with a bronzer right under my cheekbones. I bought a bronzer from NYC for 2 euro’s and I love it! So I am still using that one to create shadows under my cheekbones. For the highlights I bought the lightest compact powder from Essence I could find. And apply this in a line on my cheekbones. I also use the highlighter to make a vertical lighter line on my nose. And add a little bronzer on the sides on my nose.

For a little accent on my jawline I apply the bronzer under my jaw too. Just to create a little shadow. And lets not forget my peach blush! Right there on my cheekbones. The peach blush is from Catrice, but I have a pretty pink one from Kiko waiting for me!

You can see the results of shaping. Just so you can see the lines I use. After I always blend all the powders together for a more natural look. (And I might overdid the lines a bit in photoshop for a clear photo.)

Next up I use a white pencil for the inner lids in my eyes. For a fresh look and it makes my eyes look bigger(I never use this when I make smokey eyes of course). Some mascara. I have all kinds of mascara’s, the current one I am using is from Rimmel. I also have a Chanel one and a Essence. I do need the brush to be a hard plastic one! For my eyebrows I use a eyebrow kit from the Hema. It includes a light brown powder and a little brush. I bought an other brush. The eyeliner is optional. I always consider how thick the line needs to be with the clothes I am wearing. Or if I need it at all.

A few final touches, like removing the mascara under my eyes, or maybe apply one more layer of mascara. Maybe make my brows even. And maybe a lipstick. You can see the before and after. What are your thoughts? I just think my eyes are so boring without mascara.

But more important, what did you think of this post?

    Heel erg leuk om te zien! Ik ben zelf ook echt een kluns met make-up. Ik probeer wel wat meer de laatste tijd, maar ja. Ik vind het bij jou in ieder geval heel goed gelukt :).

    leuk om te zien! Haha ik ben zelf ook geen held, maar dat vind ik zelf omdat wanneer je jezelf opmaakt je veel meer foutjes ziet dan andere mensen zien haha.

    Mooie dagelijkse make-up look heb je, ik vind het altijd zo moeilijk om goed te contouren, want ik ben altijd zo bang dat het niet goed genoeg geblend is haha. Maar je ziet er helemaal niet slecht uit zonder make-up hoor! xx
