Tonight I’m celebrating Father’s Day with my Grandad and tragic him to a BBQ cooked by myself! So ofcourse that means I want to try out a new palette and go for a bit more of an intense make up look.
For primer I decided to use the Loreal Infalliable Primer as I have been neglecting it so much! I have a new favourite primer which I am obsessed with (post coming soon on it). I am then using Maybelline Fit Me Foundation as I bought this a few weeks ago and I don’t think it’s the best as it’s not long lasting. So a day like today where I’m only wearing my make up for a few hours is a perfect way to wear it. As I have been tanning (a little bit of sun & a little fake) I am using the Loreal Universal Colour Drops which darken foundation, these work great because you don’t have to go and buy hundreds of shades of foundations to match throughout the summer.
My new obsession for under eye concealer is Bourjois Radiance Reveal. This is super hydrating and really brightening, even more so now my foundation is darker. I’m trying to save it for special occasions as I am planning on taking it on holiday with me. On my spots I have been using Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer, this is the best concealer I have ever used! It’s so thick and works really well at coving redness!
On my forehead I like to bronze up a bit, I found using a powder just rubbed off my foundation, so now I use a cream bronzer from Seventeen. This is another staple product in my make up routine for summer, and I will definitely need to buy another one before my holiday. And lastly to add a bit of extra glow to my cheeks I’m using Benefit Wattsup cream highlighter which is a gorgeous golden shade perfect for a sunkissed look.
Today’s mascara pick is Loreal False Lash Superstar X Fibre, this is a double ended mascara. One side creates length and the other volume so it’s perfect for building up your lashes so they look great! And the for my brows I used a new product in my collection from Make Up Revolution and then Loreal Brow Plumper to set them.
To prime my eye lids I used Urban Decay Primer Potion. And my chosen eye shadow palette today was from the new collection from Tanya Burr Cosmetics. This one is called My Escape, it has really lovely earthy tones.
Today I decided to contour as I don’t do this on a daily basis, so I though why not for a special occasion. I used the middle bottom shade from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette using the contour brush from Real Techniques. To warm up my face I use the Sephora bronzer in the shade Caledonia.
Nip & Fab palettes are my favourite at the minute so I used both my blush and highlight one. They have a really good range of options for any look. I really love using the more coral shade from the blush palette as I find this looks perfect for summer days. For my highlight I tend to only stick to the top row of the palette for every day wear but today I used the bottom left shade which is very subtle golden shade.
Let me know what your favourite products are for a special occasion.
