My make up routine

I thought I would do a post based on the cosmetics I use on a daily bases. I have worn my make up the same for quite a while now but I have tried different products a long the way and really happy with my collection now, although I will be adding to it with some new products I have purchased recently that are AMAZING! I will blog about them when I use them.
So let me start with my make up bag. It's nice and large and sturdy enough to hold all of my goodies, plus the French Bulldog makes it that more appealing to me. 
Lets delve inside... Firstly I start with Guerlain essence d'Eclat à l'Or Pur with pure gold particles. This reflects the light amazingly and gives me a radiant glow. 
Next I use MAC studio fix liquid foundation in NW25 that I apply with a MAC 190 brush.
To keep my foundation in place I apply MAC studio fix powder in NC35.
One of my favourite products I use is the Bobbi Brown Bronzing brick in Bronze that creates a beautiful shimmer at the top of the cheek with a lovely bronze shade. I tend not to wear blusher so I use this instead. I apply with may Chanel travel blusher brush. 
Once the skin is finished I move on to the eyes starting with the eye brows. I use MAC crayon in fling. I love this product as  it helps me create the perfect shape. 
Moving onto the lids I use MAC mineralize skin finish as a base to give the whole eye lid a lovely shimmer.
Once the eye lid from the brow to the lash line is covered in this I then apply a dark shade in to the crease of the eye and blend it gradually up higher towards the brow. I use Dior Earth Reflection and use the dark brown and I blend with the MAC 217 blending brush. I LOVE a dark smokey eye.
Once the smokey eye is complete I move on to liquid eye liner. I have used different brands but the collection 2000 is my favourite, I like the shape and strength of the tip as I can't get on with tips that move. 
I then apply a little pencil eye liner, I don't tend to be fussed on which one I use however I am liking this Rimmel 261 Noir at the moment. I use this to create a little smokey ness as the bottom of my eye instead of having a strong line with liquid. 
My favourite mascara is by yvessaintlaurent, I usually use the singular one but it wasn't in stock this time so I bought Shocking. I still prefer Singular as it grabs on to each individual lash but the Shocking creates a nice long lash but it's just a little waxy for me. 
I then finish off with my favourite lipstick MAC Myth. I tend to wear nude lips because my eyes are so dark and this one is nice at Matt. 
And that's my make up routine complete :) but I do have something else to add to this which I haven't used yet but when I do i will be sure to blog about it as I LOVE it.

Christmas shopping outfit

Yesterday I headed off to start my Christmas shopping with my brother. It was a successful trip with getting my mums, dads and one for myself :).
I wore my new asos coat that keeps me so warm, I love the colour and the fur around the collar. I'm not usually one for long coats but i just fell in love with this one. 
The boots are also one of my latest purchases and are black seude and from eBay. I'm enjoying dressing for winter at the moment, not sure how long it will last until I want to get back into my denim cut offs but for now I'm enjoying layering and wearing high boots and feeling more Christmassy by the day.
