Affordable, everyday makeup.

This is my easy everyday makeup. Its easy, quick and affordable. I know the first thing that probably catches your eye is the 'Nivea men aftershave balm'???? I use it as a primer and will post about it at a later date. I have a youtube Vlogger called Nikkietutorials to thank for this holy-grail cheap primer. 
First off I use the 'Maybelline baby skin' around my cheeks, nose and in between my eyebrows because it helps reduce the appearance of pores. Then I put the 'Nivea aftershave balm'(a tiny bit) on my fingers and rub all over my face until it feels tacky. The second ingredient in this balm is glycerin which is hydrating and make-up sticks to it. 

Once this is tacky I use a buffing brush and apply L'oreal True Match. My shade is 2.R/2.C. I think this is the second lightest shade. This is the colour I would wear when I don't have fake tan on or in the winter when there is no sun. Next is the Maybelline age rewind concealer in 'fair'. I use this in a V shape under my eyes, down my nose and a bit on my chin. I buff this out with my same buffing brush or use a damp sponge. Then I set my undereyes with the 'Rimmel Match Perfection' powder in the shade 'transparent'. I use this all over my face too, to set my make up. Next I take a dense brush and mark out where I want to bronze. Like a 3 shape on the face, forehead to under the cheekbone to my jawbone. Then I blend it with more bronzer in the same area. The bronzer I use is 'Bahama Mama' by 'the balm'. I use the 'Sleek Makeup' blush in the shade 'Lifes a peach'. on the apple of my cheeks, just above the bronzer. Next I apply 'Mac Mineralize Skinfinish' in the shade 'soft and gentle' to highlight on the high points of my cheeks bones and in a C shape and just under my eyebrow. I also put whatever is left on my brush on the tip of my nose and my cupids bow. Next I use the 'Anastasia Brow Wiz' in the shade 'Chocolate' to fill in my eyebrows. I pop a bit of bronzer on my crease and the soft and gentle on my lid.  Just to have something on my eyes.

 I spray my face with the 'NYX Dewy Finsh' to set my makeup and give the appearance of a dewy look. I apply 'Max Factor Masterpiece' in 'Rich Black' to my eyelashes(about 10 layers lol). Lastly I just add 'NYX' in 'Thalia' to my lips. Its a nice nude pink. 
This is the finished look.
