Lets talk about the makeup which I am loving right now, and the handiest makeup bag which was kindly sent to me my a brand called Flat Lay Co. The bag itself is really unique, when opened up you can display all your products and see exactly what you’ve got in the bag which is so much easier than having to rummage though. I also realised another reason why I love this bag is because I’m hoping it is going to make me less of a messier person when it comes to covering my bed in foundation and anything else which could transfer. In theory, by having all the products laid out on the bag, I’m hoping my bed will stay clean, also this will come in handy on holiday as hotels always have WHITE bed sheets and they terrify me! When your finished doing your make up all you do is pull the drawstring and the bag sucks itself in an voila its a bag!
Now onto make up, my go to eye shadow palette, pretty much all the time Urban Decay Naked Heat, I just love the warm shades and to be honest I have worn this all year round. I just don’t think there is going to be a time when it’s not my favourite!
As for my brows, I have switched it up a little and changed from the blonde version of Loreal Brow Plumper to the darker version, I really like the look of darker more defined brows and I’m pretty glad I’m getting around to using it as I bought it by mistake ages ago!
My go to lip choice, especially when I want to to look that little bit ‘cooler’ is YSL 201, not only is this the perfect red, but it lasts such a long time (and doesn’t dry your lips).
On my cheeks I have been using the Urban Decay Naked Flushed cheek palette, I pretty much just stick to using the bronzer out of this palette although I do need to start using the highlight and blush as their equally as nice! Another bronzer I have been going crazy for is from Sephora in the shade Caledonia, this is a really orangey shade so I can only use this when I have a tan.
I recently dug out my old Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette and have been using the pink highlighter in there, it creates a really natural glow rather than a full on glitter glow.
My go to base year round is Mac Studio Fix, this is especially good for the warmer months because it doesn’t budge in the heat, therefore lasting a long time making your skin look amazing even though you feel like a sweaty mess! To set my face I have been using the Arkana i-Tech powder, this is a really light weight loose powder, which also protects your skin from the environment as well as setting your face in place.
My cream contour obsession never changes, its the Tanya Burr one in the medium dark shade, although I feel like these are getting harder to find now so I need to find a replacement once I’ve finished my last two, recommendations please (not to pricey).
Before I went on holiday I decided to dig though my drawer full of mascaras and take a brand new unopened one and hope that it was a good one that would make my lashes look long and luscious. Loreal Volume Million Lashes did exactly what it says on the packaging, my lashes have never looked so good!
And lastly, a bit of Glossier appreciation, Balm Dot Com in the flavour coconut has to be the perfect lip balm for the summer!
Here are some photos of the bag;
