Get Ready With Me!

Hey guys, Gemma here! It is currently 11.17pm, legit the only free time I have these days. UGHHHHH WORK. But I had to get some posts up so apologies for any errors. I thought I would do a classic get ready with me post! So here is my face and what I wore from the other day!

So after I moisturise etc I start with my Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in Light Vanilla.

So I pump one pump onto the back of my hand and then stipple and blend the foundation all over my face and neck. PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO BLEND YOUR FACE FOUNDATION INTO YOUR NECK. So many people forget this and suffer from the dreaded foundation line. If I have my hair up that day I will also do my ears.

Then onto tackle the black under eyes! Mines are horrific so I do use a lot of product on them! First I use my Bobbi Brown corrector. Then over this it is onto my Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer. I apply this is a triangle shape shown above as I also use it as a highlight. I then dab it in with my fingers so I don't lose all the product on the brush. On top of the concealer I apply a translucent power with a blending brush just to set it.

For my eyeliner I used my Maybelline gel liner and applied it in a winged effect.

I then used my Kiko Cosmetics (new fave!!) electric blue liner right above the black liner. I actually really loved the way this turned out. It was only two more secs and added so much more to my look.

On both my top and bottom lashes I used 'TooFaced' Lashgasm

Finally onto the brows! I use the sleek brow duo in light every single day for my brows. I line both the top and bottom of my brows with the gel side of the duo...

... Then fill them in with the powder side!

Sometimes I do apply this too heavy for my liking so if this happens I just buff it out with a clean kabuki.

My Nars Laguna will always be my go to contour product! I apply this with my Real Techniques blush brush which I find perfect for contouring. We all know the silly suck-your-cheeks-in-face!

Then I use my MAC mineralize skinfinish in medium just to blend out any lines.

This day I used my fave MAC Archie's Girls Collection blush. Again we all know the smile-and-apply-to-the-apples-of-your-cheeks gig!

For highlight I have been using MAC's lightscapade skinfinsh. I just use this right above where I have previously contoured.

To finish my face I used my Loreal Collection Privee in Eva's shade. I went for a nude lip as I had colour in my eyes! I don't know why I look so mad here!

My finished look! One day I will take a good/normal selfie. 

Now onto what I wore...

Top - Hollister
Trousers - Tesco (!!!)
Shoes - Converse
Bag - Michael Kors.

I know not every day you see Tesco paired with Michael Kors! I have to say I am in love with these trousers I think they are so high street and everyone keeps asking me where I got them. Tesco for the win!

My hair was naturally like this when I woke up and I kinda liked it so I just decided to keep it like that. Didn't even bother to brush it!

So that was my look for the day! What do you guys think about it?

Until next time!
