I am really enjoying putting on makeup for a change. Not slapdashing but taking my time sorting out what clothes & perfume I want to wear. It’s been a while since I have had time get ready. Also I have new bits in!
Becca Backlight Priming Filter is nothing like the primers I have used before. It’s light and my skin doesn’t feel clogged. I like to start with this under my foundation on areas that I’d like a bit lighted. Love mixing it with a foundation and moisturizers. Really pleased with the peachy champagne colour, it goes well with my skin tone.
Foundation is Nars Natural Radiant Longwear. I have had this for just over a week. I prefer a full or nearly full coverage anytime of the year so I know this one is a keeper for me. I only really cover certain areas -under eyes, cheeks because that’s where majority of uneveness is. I don’t take it on my nose, chin and forehead. I used Nars Tinted moisturiser at the start of the year. It’s a bit too glowy for my liking at the moment.
Concealer is Urban Decay Naked Skin. I use this to lighten areas slightly so I will skip this somedays.
I will use Charlotte Tilbury’s Airbrush Powder if I am too shiny or using powder bronzer/blush.
My brush is from MAC Snowball collection.
My lips has been very dry. I’m sure it’s the weather and the heater. I use Lanolips most times and for some colour I am enjoying Nars Lip Glide in Bound. which is quite old and probably needs chucking out. It’s sold out everywhere though, shame because it’s a beautiful mlbb colour.
I never really do my eyebrows other than combing with a spoolie or brow gel. I have been using the coloured end of Fleur’s Brow Tamer every now and then. It’s nice, I like the colour. The formula is tricky to use on my brows since it’s wet and you need a very light hand to apply. I don’t honk there is any fibres in it but it makes them appear thicker.
I am loving Eyeko’s Lash Alert mascara. I’m sure I have said this in a post before, haven’t I? I like how customizable it is. It lengthens and volumnizes without weighing my lashes down.
Chanel longwear cream shadow in Undertone. I find the formula really difficult to work with. It’s not as creamy as it looks. The colour is absolutely beautiful. The shimmer is subtle and makes my lids look healthy, somehow.
I have developed an obsession with perfumes. I was happy with two or three of the same ones I wore year after year. I can’t stand the smell of those now… Hormones, what you do! The one I am wearing most days is Molecule 01. Yep, that mysterious one. If you haven’t tried it, I urge you to get the 30ml refill. For me, this is a beautiful understated all season scent.
I was wearing Jo Malone’s English Oak and Hazelnut back in December, Christmas period. Really like it but it’s a bit heavy for everyday.
Anyway, I’ll shut up about perfumes now. Hope you guys had a lovely start of the year and the January blues haven’t got to you. Thank you for stopping by!
