I’m currently sitting in a flight lounge, drinking a glass of rose (cheers!), about to fly to Sydney for my sister’s bachelorette weekend! Her wedding is next Saturday and we are all so excited – I can’t believe my little sister is getting married!  Somehow she doesn’t seem so ‘little’ anymore. Be sure to connect with me on Instagram for all the fun!

With all the wedding talk that’s been happening, our hair and makeup for the day has been a hot topic!  It got me thinking about our own secret daily makeup routines and I really wanted to know more about yours.

After sharing Lauren Conrad’s makeup bag with you previously, I wanted to discover more about real girl glam. I love learning how other people do things and when it comes to makeup, I’m particularly fascinated. I think it’s something you can always discover more about – a new tip, trick or product. Today, I’m sharing my favorites and would love if you left a comment and told me your one makeup must-have (so I can go and try it).

But first, let’s talk about our own makeup routines – I want to know yours!

Let’s talk about our makeup routines…

What is your makeup style, do you prefer natural or more made-up and glamorous? Do you wear makeup every day? How long does it take you to apply makeup? Is there anything you wish you could do better?

To answer those questions myself, I prefer a natural look with a little glam – I love lashings of mascara and always wear a tinted moisturizer, bronzer, hint of blush and pretty gloss. You’ll find me in makeup most days and it usually takes around 20 minutes from start to finish.

I’d like to really master the eyes, from shadow layering to liner. I’m ok, but think I could do a lot more if I knew how! Leave a comment or vote below, I’d love to know about you…
