After a few weeks of laying low with make up with the crazy heat I thought it was about time I played with some new and old bits. Here is what I’ve been testing out or loving lately.
For base I applied my favourite foundation of the moment – the Clarins Extra-Comfort Foundation all over and buffed it really well into the skin. Although not pictured I did set with my trusty Australis Setting Powder that I love and recommend forever. There is a full review on that foundation up on the website and I really recommend you having a peep because it’s awesome. The rest of my face make up I’ve been keeping really simple and today I only applied the Hourglass Radiant Magenta shade. These blushes are gorgeous! Can you believe I haven’t tried one of their Lighting Powders yet?!
Moving onto to eyes and I first applied the Clarins Ombre Eyeshadow in Bronze from their Aquatic Treasures collection. I absolutely love the texture of these! Typically I do wear it alone and just blend it out for a hint of something but they do make a great base as well. I’ve been trying out the Covergirl Quads and to be honest I love, love, love the colours and the combination of them together however these just crease on me so badly. I do have oilier eyelids so maybe if you had normal eyelids then they’d work better for you… A great quad if you’re just starting out though! I then finished that all off with the L’oreal Butterfly Wings Mascara Waterproof which I spoke about here.
Too finish everything off I did my eyebrows using my HG Eye Of Horus Brow Pencil that is literally the best thing since sliced bread and then topped that with the L’oreal Artist Plumper (not pictured). I feel as though the Artist Plumper is a touch too warm for me at the moment but I haven’t found another tinted brow gel I like as much as this one. For my lipstick I applied MAC Creme Cup – such an oldie but a goodie.
