This past week I decided to take photos of what make up I used daily, I did this hoping that I would use more of a variety and not keep using the same make up day in day out. I think I have managed to use a better variety than normal so I’m pretty proud of myself for that.
I used the Make Up Revolution primer as I find this really does help hydrate my skin before I apply anything else. For foundation I decided to use one which I hadn’t in a long time, this was the Loreal True Match. I was so surprised when I applied this as it went on lovely and blended to easily. It made my skin look great! I used a cream blush from Make Up Revolution which a dusty pink. I then set my make up using Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. To bronze/contour I used the NYC bronzer which used to be an old favorite of mine and still is. For highlighter I used the Solstice palette from Sleek which is so gorgeous. For mascara I used Mac Prep + Prime which I find makes it ten times easily to apply mascara. As I needed my mascara to be waterproof this day I used my favourite one by Loreal, False Lash Architect. I kept my brows simple this day by only applying Loreal Brow Plumper to them in the medium brown shade. And lastly I finished off with a Mac lipstick in the shade Please Me.
For this days make up I decided to make it a little more colourful and gooey. I used the same primer, and then I used Max Factor 3 in 1 foundation which is a really good foundation for achieving a good base. I set it again with the Rimmel Stay Matte and then applied Nars Laguna bronzer to bronze and add some contour. I then used orgasm by Nars as blush to add a bit of colour and then the Soap & Glory highlighter because it doesn’t have a lot of shimmer in it. For eyes this day I used a Mac Paint Pot in Painterly as an eye shadow base and then used the gold shade of eyeshadow from Tarte to add a pop of sublet colour. I then used the same mascara as the day before. And to finish off I used my Dip Brow pomade from Anastasia Beverly Hills for my eye brows.
Today’s look was a natural one again as I wear it to work, I used one of my favorite foundations the Max Factor 3 in 1 and used a cream blush from Kiko and set my make up. I then used Nars Laguna Bronzer to contour followed my The Balm Mary-Loumanizer highlight to add some subtl shimmer. To my eyes I used Painterly by Mac and then applied the gold colour from the Tarte mini palette. As I wanted waterproof make up today I used Loreal mascara over the top of Mac Prep + Prime which I actually can’t live without!
On Thursday I decided to do use my Milani lipstick in Rosehip which is a gorgeous bright pink perfect for spring. So I decided to do a pinky gold shimmery eye to compliment the lip using the Uban Decay Naked 3 palette. For mascara this day I used Too Faced Better Than Sex, which is amazing and makes my lashes look so long! For my face I used Revlon Colourstay along with the Maybelline concelor for under my eyes. I then set it with Rimmel Dtay Matte as always, and then used Laguna bronzer from the Nars Steven Klein palette along with the light pink blush shade. I then highlighted my cheek bones using Mac Soft & Gentle. For eyebrows I used Anastasia Beverly Hills dip row pomade and then Rimmel Brow This Way to set them.
For Friday’s make up I did a natural looking using the MUA primer base, Loreal True Match foundation and Maybelline concelor and blended it all using the sponge. I then applied the Collection highlighter to my cheek bones and set my make up using Rimmel Stay Matte powder. To contour I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit using the middle bottom shade. I then used the middle blush from the Hour Glass Abient Lighting Edit palette to add a little colour to my cheeks. For my eyes this day I used Urban Decay primer potion to prime my eyelids and then I used the golden eyeshadow from the Make Up Revolution Mermaids Forever Palette to add some subtle colour. And then I used my normal eye brows products, and a Loreal Lipstick in the shade 640.
