Gossip Girl style #ThrowBackThursday

Gossip girl was one of the greatest girly shows I've ever watched. I really loved the characters and their  unique style. Even though the show first started in 2007 I think that Blair's and Serena's style can still be inspiring for us. Here is my little compilation of Gossip girl fashion. :)

My current MAKE-UP routine

Today I want to share with you my current make-up routine. I use drugstore make-up on a daily basis, everything is affordable and it really works for me. And with that said, lets get started. :)

Here are the products I use. You may have seen most of them in my 'What's in my travel make-up bag' post. I really love make-up and trying new things, but I just can't go buy a new foundation when I already own one that works and that's why I haven't changed my products that much.
I like applying my make-up with brushes, but sometimes when I'm in a hurry I use my fingers instead. I think that with brushes you get a better finish, but that doesn't mean you have to use them. My tip is to find what works best for you and include it in you daily make-up routine.

The first thing I like to do is moisturise my skin before applying my foundation. I apply my Garnier Essentials hydrating cream on my clean face. I let it absorb into my skin for a 1 or 2 minutes before I go on. 
Then, using my flat foundation brush I apply Maybelline's Affinitone 24h foundation in shade 032 Golden. 

After that I use the Instant anti-age L'effaceur yeux concealer by Maybelline. I know I don't need anti-age products yet, but this is the best concealer I've ever used. I apply it under my eyes and then I dab it in with this buffing concealer brush. It works magic covering my dark circles. 

When I'm finished with my face I do my brows. Since I have black hair and brows I use a black pencil to fill them in. This one is by Oriflame and it's an old pencil eyeliner, but I like using it for my brows. After filling them I set them with the Essence brow gel. 

And now it's time for the eyes!
 I start with applying the beige colour (in the upper right corner of the palette) all over my eyelids with flat eyeshadow brush. 
Then I use the fluffy brush to apply the dark matte brown colour in the outer corners of my eyelids and blend it in for a smoky effect. I bring the dark colour down to my lower lash line to define my eyes. 
After that I use the lighter colour in the palette to highlight the inner corners of my eyes. I apply it using my ring finger. 
The palette is Quattro by Essence.

To finish the eye look I use the Master precise liquid eyeliner by Maybelline and and the False lash wings mascara by L'Oreal Paris.

When my eye make-up it's all done I bring some colour to my cheeks with a rosy powder blush by Kiko in shade 109. I apply it with angled contour brush bringing the blush from the centre of my cheeks to the outer corner of my face. 

And to finish the whole look I apply my lipstick. This one is by Rimmel, number 08 from the Kate Moss collection. 

And here it's the result: 

And for my nails today I went with OPI's nail polish My vampire is buff.

Let me know what you think in the comments. Do you like this kind of post and would you like to see more make-up looks in the future. :)
