All the hype around the pout of the youngest member of the Jenner clan has given me a bit of a thing for those big 90's style brown toned nude lips. So after a thorough patrol through my blog reading list, I found MAC's Subculture lip liner was a pretty close dupe and was in stock on the Selfridges website (aka. my favourite stop for online beauty shopping/ where all my money goes) so two to three working days later, it was straight onto my lips for a bit of Kylie-esque pouting. Here's the low down...

Subculture is the ultimate brown toned nude shade without being too far away from my own natural lip shade making it perfect for an everyday lip colour. The matte formula is another reason to love this lip liner as it makes the pencil stay on for a lot longer as well as reducing the risk of any of those 'lipstick on teeth' incidents happening

Although I can't stay I go as far as Miss Jenner does with the over drawing, I still use Subculture to fill in all my lips right up to the lip line because I love the way it just gives your pout that natural but 1000x times better kind of look.

Despite having quite the makeup collection which my mum seems to think I won't be able to use in a lifetime, I've some how managed to whittle it all down into a few daily staples that give a simple, natural look without being too much for an everyday kind of situation.

For day to day, I really like a foundation that has a little coverage but doesn't feel too heavy so a pump of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation works really well and has been my favourite option for the past few months. Combined with a little of the peach toned Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer shade under the eyes, this duo covers up any all the blemishes n' bags going on whilst still giving a natural finish.

When it comes to brows, I almost always stick to the Sephora Natural Eyebrow Pencil to fill in any sparse areas and give a little more definition. A quick comb through with the spoole brush provided and a few strokes through the areas which need a little more TLC is all you need to get those brows lookin' good..

By this time on an average school day, I'd have looked at my alarm and seen I only have 5 minutes to get to the bus so when it comes to eyes, it's all about the speed. If I'm feeling a little fancy, I'll reach for the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze for a little extra drama and then just blend that out with a fluffy brush across my eyelid. But for most days, I just opt for the MAC Eyeliner in coffee on the inside of my eyes and on the lash line as well as layering up a few of coats of the Volume Clubbing Mascara from Bourjois.
