School Makeup Routine {spring 2014.}

Today I'm showing you's how I do my makeup each day when I go to school. It's quite neutral but I do tend to add in the odd pop of colour such as the pink lips. I'll be the first to say that I am a professional procrastinator so makeup takes way longer than it should in the morning - A good day when procrastinating is minimum means fifteen minutes spent doing makeup, Again way way way way way too long. 

To see the video I uploaded on my YouTube of applying this makeup click here
These are all the products I use.

Maybelline Fit Me concealer | No7 Pressed Powder in Translucent | 4U powder brush | Essence mosaic bronzer
I wear the bare minimum of concealer, I mainly use it to reduce the obviousness of spots and dark circles under my eyes and then I finish it off with powder and a bit of bronzer around my nose. 

Essence 2in1 Beauty Beats eyeliner | 17 eyebrow pencil | NYC Individual Eyes Palette | Collection No Clumps mascara | Essence Quattro palette  
My eye makeup is also pretty basic to a certain extent. I begin by priming my eyes and then I fill in the ends of my brows since they are far too scarce than I'd prefer them to be. I then highlight my inner corners and browbone using a white eyeshadow which isn't pictured here. I wear eyeshadow that matches my skin colour all over my eyelid and then a light brown in the crease. Lately I've been wearing burgundy on my outer waterline. I finish with a thin line of black eyeliner which is slightly winged and I'm finally back to wearing mascara ! For ages I've been replacing it with eyeliner instead as I don't like my lashes to look like spider legs. 

Nivea Lip Butter | Collection Gothic Glam lipstick 
Because I love colour so much I can't just leave my lips 'au natural' so I wear a very light layer of berry lipstick. As I don't wear much of it, The colour usually fades throughout the day so it is barely noticable.

So that is the makeup I wear to school and I hope you enjoyed it,
