I am definitely not one to venture out and try new things all that often, i know what i like and I stick to those things. recently, I've gravitated towards a couple of new products which have slowly earned their places in my everyday makeup bag.
For the majority of this year, i have really well and truly stuck by my trusty Naked 2 palette and cannot quite imagine the life of my eyelids without it. However, I have recently been really getting into more plummy toned products regarding my eyes, lips and cheeks. Over the past few days, I have fallen back in love with my Too Faced eyeshadow in the colour Bonbon and my MAC eyeshadow in Sketch. Both of these shadows took their spot on the sidelines when my naked palette came along as I much preferred the convenience of having all my colours in one place. Before applying my shadows, i apply my Too Faced creaseless cream eyeshadow in jailbait as i feel that it really does give my makeup a lasting finish and have used it religiously. I then like to use the pink half of the Too Faced eyeshadow all over my lid and the MAC eyeshadow in sketch pushed into my crease. To complete my eyes, i always apply my Maybelline master precise liquid eyeliner which is my holy grail product and apply a good helping of my Telescopic mascara, which is running dangerously low.
Being relatively young, I don't want to be caking up my face too much. I love using the Revlon nearly naked foundation as it is so light, doesn't break me out, and my skin always feels much more moisturized when I wear it. I am definitely not someone who you would associate with blush. i have a horribly round face and the last thing I want to be doing is highlighting that. However, this NARS multi-purpose blush/ lipstick/eyeshadow in Antibes gives me a really nice glow when I apply it to the tops of my cheekbones and this, in turn creates a slimming effect on my face. I tend to avoid powder as I have very dry skin and this will only highlight any dry or flakey patches on my skin.
Again, not an area I spend too much time on. I normally only ever apply a lip balm or maybe a tinted babylips if I'm feeling wild. I brought this MAC lipstick in the colour Plumful ages ago, and whilst i have always adored the colour, i could never bring myself to wear something so bold. I have defiantly re-kindled my love of clothes over the past couple of months, and with that i have been experimenting in all areas, including my lips. I actually really love this colour on me as I have such dark hair and features but pale skin, it sits nicely and doesn't look too over the top. therefore, have found myself venturing into public sporting this little number over the past few days.
