I’ve recently decided (This morning) that I want to try and post at least once a week, and Vanessa has said that she’ll try and post at least once a week as well, so this blog should be pretty active and have two posts a week, but probably only one because one of us will forget!
Anyway, I thought that today I’d post my “Daily makeup” look. Keep in mind that I do NOT wear makeup every day, I wear it on days that I work, mainly because my job is quite stressful and I naturally have a red flush to my cheeks and my patients or coworkers tend to freak out on me thinking that I’m super duper stressed and about to cry, when in reality, I just have some intense rosy cheeks.; so I cover it up with some foundation and concealer.
When I’m on a day off and I’m only going out to run an errand by myself, I’ll stick with a fresh face. I want to make it clear that I do not ‘hide’ behind my makeup. I have fun with my makeup. I do ridiculous looks and then snapchat them to my friends and cry-laugh at myself, because, lets face it: I’m hilarious!
Whoops, that intro was really long, so let’s get straight into it!
These are all the products I used (Only three eyeshadows and I’ve labelled them to make it easy)
L’Oreal Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer
L’Oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation in N1
LA Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer in Classic Ivory
Elf HD Undereye Setting Powder (It’s now empty -cry-)
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent
Brow Bar To Go by WhiteningLIghtning (I believe it’s the Blonde to Brunette)
Jordana Blush in Rose Silk
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Lightscapade
A Browny-Grey eyeshadow from an eyeshadow in a pre-made palette (not pictured)
Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Creme Brulee
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Shimma Shimma
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Ice Queen (I have a full blog post coming up on all my MUG shadows including swatches so stay tuned for that!)
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
Jordana Best Lash Extreme Mascara
Chi Chi Creamy Matte Liquid Lipstick in Crazy In Love
NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray
And here’s the finished look! Don’t mind my expression, I literally took about 50 selfies before I found one that was okay (It’s really hard to take a selfie with a DSLR, okay?)
I know it looks like a lot of products in my description, but I like to use a lot of products. I have a pretty awesome makeup collection, even if I do say so myself, and I want to get as much use out of them as possible 🙂
As usual, all opinions are my own and I purchased all products used with my own money
