Makeup Lately



Today I have another makeup lately post for you! If you haven't read my previous ones, its basically my go to makeup I've been reaching for!

Base:

Sleek Barekissed Illuminator in the shade Monaco // £8.99

I swear this was called Bare Skin Illuminator, but apparently not. Anyway, I've been loving this as a primer. I do like a hydrating primer that adds a bit a glow to the skin and this one is perfect. The shimmer in it is very subtle, so nothing OTT for a day time look. It also creates a smooth, radiant base for foundation. And even better it helps my makeup last longer throughout the day!

EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation // £12.50

This has been my foundation of choice and I love it. I plan on doing a full review of this soon. But this a great foundation. I believe its developed for those who have olive / yellow skin tones - I don't but I'm an avid fake tanner. The foundation itself blends so beautifully and lasts so long on  the skin. It also doesn't dry my dehydrated skin out either.


NYX Above and Beyond Concealer // £5.50                                                                 POST

I've been using a combination of the yellow shade and the fair shade to conceal my horrid dark circles. And this stuff is brilliant for it! Especially the yellow one. I like to blend it out with a damp beauty blender so it doesn't look to heavy under the eye. The only down side of these are they can be prone to creasing so setting it with a powder is a must.

Makeup Revolution Pressed Powder Bronzer //

For bronzer this has been my go to. This is warm toned so perfect for giving that sunkissed look. Its cheap and cheerful, well pigmented, easy to blend and lasts well.

NYX HD Blush in the shade bitten // £5.50

This has been my go to blush since I brought it! It's a plum shade with mauve-y untertones. This blush is so silky, so easy to apply and blend and, looks beautiful on the cheeks. This stuff is crazy pigmented, so apply with caution!

Topshop Glow pot in Polished // £9

I finally managed to get my hands on this after it was out shock in my local Topshop for so long. And I'm so glad I did. Its cream, chamayned toned highlight, that is subtle for everyday wear. I'm always a bit weary of cream highlighter because I find that they move the product underneath, this one doesn't. I apply a few dots to the tops of cheek, down the bridge of my nose and cupids bow, then use my Real Techniques Stippling brush to blend it in.

Eyes:

Zoeve En Taupe // £15.50                                                                                            POST

I've been loving creating a cool toned, icy eye look lately, with this palette. I take the Shade Spun Pearl all over the lid and blend through the crease with Gallery, and Wrapped in Silk in the outer v. All the shades in the palette are perfect for everyday wear, super pigmented, butter soft and blend like a dream!


Maybelline Lasting Studio Gel Eyeliner // £7.99

I've also been enjoying winged liner. And Gel liner is perfect! Its super black, applies evenly, lasts all day without smudging or flaking!

Maybelline Lash Sensational // £7.99

I'm so late on the bandwagon with this. I find that with drugstore mascaras your either a Maybelline mascara girl or a loreal mascara girl. Any Maybelline mascara I've tried in the past haven't really done it for me. But this!!! Its amazing! One of the best mascaras I've ever used. It gives long, volumized lashes that hold all day! It doesn't flake, or smudge and removes easily at the end of the day!

Revlon Super Lustrouis Lipstick in the shade Mink // £7.99

I been loving the low maintenance of a nude lip lately and The formula of these lipsticks is brilliant! They're long lasting with out drying and the shade Mink is a beautiful pale brown toned nude - which I love! Perfect for everyday wear.

So that's been my go to makeup lately. What's yours?

Until next time...
