University Essentials

You may or may not know that I am currently a university student studying a Fashion Management degree. For me it's important to make sure I look, well, respectable when it comes to what I wear makeup wise so I thought it would be a good idea to put together a few of my favourite makeup items that I wear pretty much daily at university. 

When it comes to wearing makeup at uni I try to choose products that help make the skin look youthful, awake and healthy. To pep up my skin I  first appl the L'Oreal Lumi Magique base to help add a lovely glow to the skin under foundation. Next up I apply a light base and for this I use the Dr. Jart+ BB Beauty Balm. The reason I use a light base is because I don't want to clog my pores or dry out my skin from wearing a heavy foundation. Unfortunately I can't seem to repurchase this BB cream anymore from boots which is a shame however I am going to test out the other BB creams in this range and see how they compare. After buffing in the base with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush I apply the Collection concealer under my eyes in a triangle shape to help lift ad brighten my eyes. I find this helps to really open up my eyes and give the illusion of a good nights sleep. On a day-to-day basis I tend to just comb through my brows but sometimes I brush the L'Oreal Brow Artist Plumper through my brows for added definition. Once that is all worked into the skin I use my favourite bronzer ever NARS Laguna to lightly contour and overall bronze the face. To add a bit of colour into my face I pop on the Benefit Coralista Blush to the apples of my cheeks for a natural flush of pink. A step I never avoid is curling my lashes as this really opens up the eyes and finishes off the look- to do this I use the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers. A few coats of my favourite drugstore mascara Maybelline Lash Sensational pretty much completes the look. Last but not least I apply my everyday nude lipstick by mac in the shade Twig to the lips and I'm good to go for the day.
