Everyday Makeup Routine

Today I thought I would show you the make up I wear on a daily basis.
I start off using the Bourjois 123 Perfect foundation in the shade 52 , the lightest shade for my oh so pale skin. I love this foundation because it gives superbly even coverage but may be slightly too dark for my skin, despite it being the lightest shade (just seen that you can get a shade 51 - why didn't they have that in the shop!?). . I don't have a foundation brush that's works as well as I would like and I am not willing to pay stupid prices for one so for now I just use my fingers. I then use the blogger's fave - the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, again in the lightest shade, under my eyes and to cover any spots. I also use it to cover any red patches that I have such as on my jawline. To make my foundation and concealer stay put throughout the day, I use the Collection Sheer Loose Powder which I just sweep over my face with a classic powder brush. In order to emphasise my non-existent cheekbones, I use the Sleek contour kit. I swipe the brown powder underneath my cheekbones and the highlighter just above to give me a more sculptured face (hopefully). I love this product but being pale, I need to take more care with the amount of the brown powder I use as it is very pigmented so too much would mean orange face (ginger problems).
On my eyes I use the white eye shadow from the MUA eye shadow trio, in the shade smoke screen, to simply brighten my eyes. I do the classic cat-eye liner with the Collection Extreme Felt Tip Liner Pen and pencil my top waterline with the SEVENTEEN Kohl Liner. I know every blogger seems to do their eyes in a similar way but I just love the way that it looks. To top it off I sweep on some Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express Mascara (what a mouthful to say). This mascara is pretty good but can be a bit clumpy at times but I am not that fussy when it comes to mascara.
