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?

    You already know I'm attending 🙂 xx

  • Ohh your skin is lovely and you look flawless in the end! Love seeing other people's standard make-up items – that apple balm smells divine.

  • Lauren-Ella says:

    Your eyebrows are amaaaaaaazzing


  • Alyse says:

    I love the simplicity of your makeup! You have really flawless skin.

  • Sarah says:

    you have such a beautiful blog!
    can't believe this is my first visit 🙂

  • I'd love to make one of these videos. I don't wear eye makeup during the day then a smokey eye for night haha x

  • Morag Lee says:

    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).

  • Sarah says:

    Flippin' love your eyebrows! Definately missed a trick not signing up in time for the HD Brows palette, sob 🙁 xo

  • AmyBell says:

    Ah you're insanely pretty! Urban Decay is supposed to have good (but expensive)palettes. I'm up in Aberdeen so might head down for this! xx

  • Caroline says:

    Your make up looks lovely 🙂 The HD brows palette is definitely on my wishlist! x

  • Pretty girl, this is lovely.


  • NRC♥ says:

  • Dee says:

    I really love your blog, so I'm a new follower =)

  • Raz says:

    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.

  • <3 love. x hivenn p.s enter my $200 shopbop giveaway?

  • Mabel says:

    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.

  • Claire says:

    I love watching makeup videos! Can I just point out that your skin is FLAWLESS. Like daaaaym.


  • Eloise says:

    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!


  • Oh you look so cute Gillian 🙂

  • 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.
