At school I was never really a BIG make up wearer. In my early teens I rocked the blue, white and pink shadow with some pressed powder. At secondary school I up'ed to light foundation and concealer with mascara. I also went through a faze of black glittery eye shadow for a while.

I've always loved make up but I never really had the confidence to wear it when I was younger. Some people wear make up because of low self esteem - I just didn't dare bring any further attention to myself.

Nowadays I like to wear natural make up during the day - occasionally I will add a lipstick, a bit of eyeliner and even eye shadow but following on from Day In, Day Out - Face Products, these are the staple products in my make up bag. 

MAC Studio Fluid/Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
I have used Rimmel Match Perfection for quite some years. I feel it gives great coverage and stays put through out the day. I use MAC Studio Fluid as a going out Foundation and sometimes add the both together if I am having an overly pale day.

Benefit Boing Concealer
Although I don't always use this on a day to day basis I swear by this concealer. It hides a multitude of sims (and blemishes!)

Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara
This is the only mascara that I have found that works with my long but straight eye lashes. Combined with my faithful eyelash curler's this is my perfect combo.

Maybelline Brow Drama Brow Mascara
As I've said in a previous post, I love this stuff. It creates natural but structured brows without having the effort of colouring and shading. Perfect for on the go.

Benefit Coralista Blush
The blush is the perfect tone between bronzer and blush so is easy to brush on in a rush (and plus it smells scrummy!!)

Carmex Cherry Lip Balm
My lips get very dry and I swear by this stuff in the day, especially in the winter. It also contains SPF which makes it great for holidays.

What are your guys favourite quick fix products?


  1. Love the mac studio fix foundation! Definitely my favourite for when I'm going out too :)
