Everyday makeup menu

I'll be the first to admit that I've become pretty lazy with my makeup recently. Whether it's because of the 7am starts at work, or getting up early for college, I just haven't been wearing too much. I've gone for the simple look rather than one that requires more time and effort.  

In all honestly, at the moment I don't think my skin really needs priming. With the foundations I use and the skin type I have, primer has gradually become a step of my makeup routine that I've missed out and so now I just go straight in with foundation.
I've been using the Maybelline fit me matte poreless in the shade 110 recently as my daily base because it gives such a nice natural coverage. Then to conceal I use the L.A. girl pro conceal which I have in just about every makeup post because it's my favourite.

To add some shape but not full on contour 'cuz who got time for dat' when you're doing your makeup at 6am in the dark, I use my sculpt and contour palette from Makeup Revolution in C01. Using the bronzer to add some colour back in to my face and the blush to give that winter rosiness to my cheeks. To highlight, rather than using the shade from the kit which I don't find to be very pigmented, I take the tiniest bit of my Mua undress your skin highlighter in Oyster and just blend that in for a soft glow.
Next comes eyes and I've been using my Sleek all night long palette for this. Mine is actually the miniature version, however it's just the same and has loads of pretty burnt coppery shades and shimmery golds for the festive season! And of course, no eye look is complete without mascara and Rimmel lash accelerator endless is my go to right now as it gives such great length!

Finally to finish is lips, which is probably the part that makes this whole look not quite so totally boring, and trying to add something wintery/Christmassy to my makeup its a Rimmel Kate Moss one in the shade 48. Which is a beautiful deep red browny shade, almost the colour you'd imagine a pretty autumnal leaf!

And that's that! Those are the few products I've been using recently for my 'everyday face' and it's super simple but also looks like I've made a slight effort, especially with the lip colour! I'd love to know what your staple everyday makeup products are and if you have any the same as mine.
