Makeup Lately


I've noticed that lately I keep reaching for the same products almost everyday, so I thought I'd share them with today. So without further ado:

Base:

Soap & Glory One Heck Of Blot Primer // £10

This pore perfecting primer promises to keep shine at bay all day, minimise pores and help makeup last longer. I've been loving this recently - it really does help my makeup last all day and give a smooth base for makeup application!

Too Faced Born this way foundation // £29

This is one of the best foundations I've used in a long time! And I've found myself reaching for this for that reason! The formula is very light and blends effortlessly into the skin. It has a medium but buildable coverage and it lasts all day! But its the finish of this that I absolutely love - It leaves me with an amazing, radiant glow that isn't to 'glowy' for this time of year! I have a full review of this. You can read it here.

NYX Above And Beyond Full Coverage Concealer in the Shade Yellow // £5.50

 Since NYX has come to the UK and I picked up few bits I have fallen in love! This is one of the best concealers for under eye circles I have tried! Its quite a solid formula that difficult to blend out (I use my fingers) but when it does my dark circles are gone! It doesn't crease either which is always a plus!

MUA Skin Define Hydro Powder // £3

This powder is amazing for anyone with dry skin! This sets makeup without being drying or cakey! It also contains lots of skin loving ingredients to stop skin drying out. So I've been using this since I brought it!



Smash Box Shape Matters Palette // £60 

This 3 in 1 palette has been my go to for all my brow and contouring needs! This palette has 2 eye brow powders, a brow wax, 4 contouring and highlighting shades, and 12 eye shadows for almost any eye look! I've been using the lightest brow shade (taupe) to fill in my brows. I never realised how easy it is and the natural finish from using powders to fill in my brows, so this has been a staple in my routine! I've been using the warmer bronze shade for contour and the shimmery highlight shade!

Essence Matte Touch Blush in the shade 20 Berry Me up // £2.50

I've been using this for a no fuss, bearly there wash of colour. This is lovely pinky, purple shade that blend well and looks lovely on the cheeks!

Eyes:


Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette / /£15.50

I can't rave about this palette enough! But I wont bore you to much as to why I love this palette, I have a full post on why I do here. Almost everyday I've been using substitute for love in my crease and freshly toasted in the outer v for natural, everyday autumnal look!

Lips:

Urban Decay Matte Revolution Lipstick in the Shade 1993 // £15.50

I love changing up my lipsticks, but for days when I'm really busy or out all day, I've been reaching for this little beauty! This is a muted, medium to dark brown with slight warm taupe undertones. It is super comfortable on the lips, and looks absolutely beautiful. The pigmentation is brilliant. I get around 5 hours wear out this before the colour starts to breakdown. Which is awesome - there's nothing worse than lipsticks that transfer everywhere and after 10 minutes look like you haven't even applied any!

So that's the makeup I've been reaching for lately! What are yours?

Until next time...
