"Simple" everyday make up

I put the quotation marks around simple because really there is quite a few bits of make up here! It ain't easy to achieve simplicity! These are the products I use
to use a fresh but polished look, inoffensive make up I've christened it.

Firstly a base of L'Oreal True Match foundation in the shade C2 rose vanilla (€10.99), applied with Real Techniques buffing brush (in a set for €28.99, can be purchased way cheaper on for a flawless finish. Buff, buff, buff is the key here, then buff more. Next is a cult classic YSL Touché Éclat in 1 (€35.00), under my eyes for a little bit of a lift, as True Match is a matte ish finish and just because I love it. I gently buff this in with a Real Techniques domed shadow brush. Now brows, I use this Anastasia Brow Wizz (£15.60 from Cultbeauty) in the shade brunette lightly just to fill in the gaps and brush my brows through with the spooley on the end. It creates a natural looking brow without being over defined. I line my upper lash line thinly as I can and as close as I can with this Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner pencil in 001 Black (€3.99). This is to make my eyelashes seem more voluminous rather than define my eyes. With this look I want everything to compliment each other without a centre point of focus. I apply two coats of YSL Babydoll mascara in black (€32.50). The formula of this mascara is eyelashes in a tube. That's all there is to say. I use a Nars blusher in super orgasm (free sample). I take the Real Techniques duo fiber contour brush (in a set for €29.99, again way cheaper on lightly press it on the blusher, tap the excess and the glitter (it does not transfer on to the face so why put it in?!) and place on the apples of the cheeks. Here again i find they key is blend blend blend. Lastly to finish it off I use Macs creme cup lipstick (€19.00, have these gone up in price AGAIN?) for a lovely pink finish to my lips.

There you have it. My everyday go to quick make up routine. What products do you use on an everyday basis? Are there any wonder products you have found let me know?
