Current Everyday Makeup Routine

"...the new approach I have to make up these days"

Before I start telling you about the makeup routine that I've found myself in over the last few months I just want to give you a bit of background info into the new approach I have to make up these days.
It got to a point earlier this year where I looked into my trusty old Ikea Malm dressing table drawer and felt completely overwhelmed with the amount of makeup I was stashing in there and never using. Am I a bright lipstick kind of person? No.  Am I ever going to wear anything other than a neutral eyeshadow? No.  Do I need 15 different foundations when my stance on makeup these days is much more minimal? absolutely NOT.  I decided to just be ruthless and realistic with what I like and what I don't like and had a HUGE clearout.  All those crazy colour lipsticks were binned in favour of all my favourite nudes and glosses.  I kept only a handful of my eyeshadow palettes and hung onto only my favourite things.

"I'm more about being 'me' these days and caring less what people think"

Now this doesn't mean that I'm not ever going to buy makeup again because I've just had a big clearout. Oh no no NO! I just want to ensure that in future I'm only buying more of what I love.  I'm very into the whole 'less is more' vibe at the moment, gone are the days of plastering my face in foundation and concealer - so what if I have a few spots on my face or a scar where I burnt my head with my curling iron?! I'm more about being 'me' these days and caring less what people think.

"....sheer, neutral and just enhancing features rather than masking them"

That said, please don't confuse this with me being totally 'anti' make up...this couldn't be further from the truth!  I'm just more of a neutral tone, nude lip, bit of bronze and glow kind of girl these days rather than a full face of makeup. Think the brand 'Glossier', sheer, neutral and just enhancing features rather than masking them and caking them in unnecessary gunk.

So anyway. That was a bit of a ramble! let's get to the good stuff. 

Although these pics were clearly not taken on UK turf, it's the same make up I was wearing before I went to Thailand and what I'm wearing now I'm back and it's what I've been wearing pretty much every day for the last couple of months with a few lipstick / gloss switch ups.
