My everyday drugstore face routine

Hi guys, ive been really loving my drugstore face makeup this autumn/winter and ive been using this combonation everyday to achieve a simple flawless look.
Benefit 'porefessional' primer £18.50
The first product i apply is the benefit 'porefessional' primer in order to prepare my skin and help give a smoother base for my foundation, althought this primer is a bit more expensive, a little goes along way and its totally worth the money, i have tried alot of primers and this one is my favourite by far, this is great for oily skin as it mattifys your face and keeps your makeup on all day, its also scented with oranges which can only be a good thing.
Rimmel wake me up foundation £8
The next product i apply is rimmels 'wake me up' foundation in the shade true ivory, i usually use one pump of this and buff it into my skin with a real techniques brush (review coming soon) although this foundation gives a dewey finish, i feel, although it works best for dry skin, it still works for people with oily skin like myself. This foundation gives a flawless finish and stays put all day, the colour range is amazing especially for pale people like myself and once again this products smells amazing, there seems to be a pattern occuring?
My next step is too use my collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer, i apply this using my fingers to my under eye circles, blemishes and redness as i think it works great for all 3. If you have internet access you must of heard of this product as it is raved about alot! and for good reason, this concealer is high coverage, long lasting and £4.19!

Then i set my makeup with Rimmel londons 'stay matte' peach glow powder, once again i apply this with a real techniques brush, this powder just makes sure that my makeup will defiantely stay put all day and gives my skin a matte finish, which i prefer in winter.

Lastly to finish off my skin, i contour my cheeks (again using a real techniques brush) i know estee lauder isnt a drugstore brand but im a big bronzer girl and im yet to find a drugstore bronzer that i like as much as this one, this bronzer is very warm toned without being orange, which compliments my skin tone perfectly, i do this to slim down my face and give me a warmer complexion.
What does your everyday face routine consist of? are there any drugstore bronzers worth a try?

November wish list

Hi guys! This is just some of the things that i have been lusting after in the month of November.
The winter season is party season and with christmas fast approaching it would be rude not to buy a pair of glamourous false lashes and eyelures new katy perry range are perfect. My personal favourites are the cool kitty lashes as they would give enough drama for a christmas party look.

Katy perry 'cool kitty' £5.99

The weather in england in the last few weeks has been appalling, giving the perfect excuse to stock up on big cosy jumpers and as always H&M are ahead of the game, i adore these malted scoop neck jumpers, they'd look great with a collared blouse or even just leggings and boots!

As you can probably tell i cant stay of the H&M website this month and i have spotted another top that i have to add to my collection, this stunning white lace peplum. I think this would look amazing with black skinny jeans to give more of a casual feel, and at £14.99 its a bargain!
Lastly this month i have been obsessed with sparkles and glitter as im already in chrsimas mode, and i have noticed that models own have brought out a chunky glitter nail polish range, the colours are stunningly beautiful and would look amazing over coloured nails or just on there own, they'd also be great for creating accent nails, these are a must have for the party season and soon i will own all 5.
