Everyday Makeup

My everyday face changes a lot. I recently had a sort out of makeup and I've created a box of products I've had a while, or have nearly finished. I really need to actually start using some up before I buy new things. 

Coverage is my main goal at the moment as i'm having a 'mare. I have been using the Kryolan palette after primer and I use various shades to cover blemishes and hide my under eye circles. I am running low on the palest shade so I need to check and see if they sell that separately. 
My foundation of the moment is Stay Matte by Rimmel. I love how buildable this is as you can really get a full coverage, if needed. I'm also so impressed by how well the shade 'light porcelain' actually matches my skint #palegirlproblems

I'm currently using the Maybelline Master Ink matte liner in Charcoal Black. I find this so much harder to get a precise line with than I do a pen liner but the formula is ones of my favourites. It does dry quickly and doesn't transfer up my lids, which I find with a lot of other liners. It's probably the only part of my makeup which looks the same at the end of the day as it does at the start.

For mascara I've been using two together. I've been starting with the lengthening mascara from Collection for (you guessed it) length. I don't find that this gives a massive colour payoff though so I've been using the Perversion mascara from Urban Decay over the top, just to emphasize the lashes.

I think I may have cracked contouring (not really, but I'm definitely getting there). I can't remember the last time I ended up with weird lines. These days I can actually manage to make my face appear slimmer and I think this is down to applying the darkest shade from the Kryolan palette underneath my Sleek contour kit as a base shade. I think the cream chisels in all the right places.

My everyday lipstick at the moment, especially for days I'm working, is 05 Cool Nude by Essence. It's really sheer and hydrating. I have a hideous habit of biting the skin off my lips so I need something that isn't going to go gross and patchy mid shift and this is perfect. 

Tell me I'm not the only one who forgets about everything I already own when I buy new makeup?
