My Updated Makeup Routine 2019|How my makeup routine has changed in 2019

So when I started my blog my makeup routine use to be all or nothing. I didnt'nt discovered that there was such a thing as concealer and making an effort consisted of a winged eye or having a very grunged smoky eye and lipstick. Looking back I didn't know what the heck I was doing with makeup but one thing I know looking back is that my skin was incredibly even and glowy because I have always been into skincare especially since I didn't discover foundations ect I guess growing up and going through really bad acne after that teenage phase I wanted to take care of my skin to avoid that pretty early on.

So with the likes of YouTube and how skincare and makeup has evolved I wanted to give you an idea of how I do my makeup now in 2019 and what I focus on mostly now.

Prep and Prime

So I don't always do this before my foundation routine especially when I am in a rush and there is need to that 5 minute makeup I talk about so much on my Instagram but prepping the skin is so important especially when you want to protect your skin or when you want your foundation to stay in place or look better.

A Flawless Base

I'll be honest this is the most important thing to me when it comes to doing my makeup I love my makeup to look even so a great foundation and concealer is important I'm also looking at trying colour correcting to have an even more flawless base to my skincare regimen. Even if you don't have a full face having a flawless base just brightens the face.

Glowy and Dewy

When I use to do my makeup in 2013 for instance it was all about the blusher making sure my cheeks popped some days they popped more than others and I looked a bit like bobo the clown but I guess that's the thing with beauty and makeup trends change. But I will be totally honest I still love a good blusher but its a bit more neutral and I pair it with a highlighter. I rarely go for a highlighter that is super glittery and bright but I do love that glowy dewy look at the minute it's great for a full face or a toned down no makeup makeup. I'm not sure why highlighter wasn't created sooner I am sat here thinking where would I be if they didn't invent highlighter haha. But honestly it's a staple in my makeup routine in 2019.


I am still working on  getting this right but I love when it goes right it just gives such a nice structure to the face I plan to try a cream contour this year but I am obsessed with the Nip and Fab Contour and Highlight Palette that's what I am using alot at the minute.

Lips or Eyes

I remember when I use to do makeup I use to have a bold eye and a bold lip then I hated doing makeup because it just made me look so much older. Now I've learnt you cant have both a bold eye and a bold lip its one or the other. So most times when I do makeup if I have a bold eye I will pair it with a nude lip or a lip gloss or If I have a bold lip it will be a neutral eye maybe a liner depending on the type of look but yes I don't do that anymore it just looked over the top. Some of my friends or Youtuber's do it but their really neat when it comes to makeup or they have a face that suits like a full face of makeup and it looks FLAWLESS!

Eyebrows and Lashes

This year I am focusing on my brows more the last few years that was a bit on the back burner because I find it hard to do my brows but I am determined to find a consistent shape and a good brow routine. The struggle is real but I will update you. Also I have been trying different mascara's but nothing beats the lash paradise and I really think I need to go and revisit that mascara now I have tried other mascara's.

So that's it for my makeup routine in 2019. Follow my blog for my post on my 5 minute makeup routine and my upcoming colourpop reviews.
