I've been meaning to make one of these videos for a while but never quite got round to it. Then I recorded one last week and it recorded in some weird format so I couldn't open it in any of the video-editing programmes on my computer, nightmare! But anyway, I recorded again and managed to get it to work this time.

My makeup is usually pretty much exactly the same every day. Sometimes I'll wear lipstick or different blushers/bronzers but otherwise I usually stick to this routine. Cat eyes are definitely my signature look!

I usually don't deviate much from this for night-time makeup either, although I'm much more likely to wear bright lipstick for a night out. I think I really need to branch out and start wearing more eyeshadow - any recommendations for good eyeshadow palettes to buy?

Do you have a daily makeup routine, or do you do something different every day?

  8. My daily look is very similar every day but for night time I do like to mix it up a bit with different lipsticks. 17 actually do some good eyeshadows - I got some for Christmas last year and was fairly surprised by how pigmented they were. x

    P.S. I'm half considering going to blogger meet-up even though I update like once a fortnight haha. (I really love Glasgow).

  14. Watching this was quite soothing haha. I really want to try Double Wear. I tend to wear the same make-up most days, but I'm trying to mix it up with a bit of eyeshadow at the moment.

  16. I do the same, boring makeup during the week and go crazy with makeup on the weekends. I love to do crazy eye stuff. A good shadow palate is Coastal Scents. It's what I use. I find it to be good quality and it was pretty cheap. How do you like the L'oreal primer? I've been wanting to buy it, but I've been unsure.

  18. I'm the same, I end up wearing pretty much the same makeup Monday-Friday then I'll attempt to mix it up on a weekend but end up reverting back to my usual!

  20. Can I just say...you are stunning, such a doll face:) My makeup routine is kind of similar and I don't deviate from it much either. I am hooked on any one of the Urban Decay palettes and the Kat Von D Beethoven palette...all winners in my book.
