Today I had a little bit more time to play with makeup than I usually do so I had the opportunity to play about with a few different things! I'm really happy with the way my makeup turned out so I thought I'd show you what I used!
In order of use:
Avon Magix Face Perfecter. I used this as my primer and I have some dry skin happening on my jaw line and this help smooth over that area.
MaxFactor CC Cream Foundation. This replaced the Weightless Foundation and as far as I can tell it's the same thing just with a different name. I use it all the time because it's light enough for my skin and has very good staying power.
Benefit Boi-ing Concealer. I used this under my eyes and around my nose. It's very thick and covers blemishes and redness really well. I use it sparingly around my eyes due to it's thickness. I do wish it was a little bit lighter though, I have shade 1 and it's a tad darker than my foundation. It doesn't look ridiculous but a tiny bit lighter would have been nice.
ELF All Over Cover Stick in Pink Lemonade. I put this on before powder as my blush. I've had this product for over a year and never use it and I have to say it hasn't dried out or gone funny at all which is impressive for something that costs about £1.50.
Rimmel Stay Matte. I applied a light cover of this all over my face. I don't really have oily skin so I don't really have to use it but I just feel unfinished if I don't.
ILAH Brow Powder. I've been using this since January, I love it!
Stila in the Light. I used the shade Bare all over my lid, right up to the eyebrow to give my eyes an even matte finish.
Then, I used the Brown eyeliner that comes in the Stila palette above my lash line as a change from liquid eyeliner. I have to say the eyeliner goes on so smoothly and it's a gorgeous colour but I'll probably be sticking to liquid eyeliner in the future for ease of application! I find pencil eyeliner too time consuming on the top lash line.
MaxFactor False Lash Effect Mascara (missed it out of the picture! Sorry) I love this mascara, I have done since I very first used it. I have two reviews on it HERE and HERE.
Barry M Waterproof Eyeliner. I need to buy this in not waterproof because it takes too long to get off. Having said that this is such a nice eyeliner to use. It's soft and creamy, it doesn't drag across your eyes and it lasts pretty well too for something on your waterline. I used it right on the outer corner to just before the middle just to darken the outer edge.
MUA Lipgloss in Shade 2. This is quite nice, it doesn't give off any colour so it works well for a neutral look. Nothing too special. It's not overly sticky on the lips but if it's windy out your hair is going to be sticking to it!
And that't it!
Thanks for reading!
See you next time.
