BEAUTY | A ROUTINE

24 October 2014


I love my make-up bits, so every now and again this beauty post that just pops up on Style and Sushi. Today I felt like sharing a "make-up look" with you that I just go back to if I don't feel like putting the usual BB cream and eyeliner stuff on my face. So without further or do, let me explain what I use.

After I moisturised my face with the Origins Ginzing moisturiser, I usually go in with my NARS creamy concealer in Custard. I just tend to pop that onto any redness on my face and just blend it in with my fingers. Next I use the Laura Mercier Mineral Loose Powder in Real Sand, which I've been using for absolutely ages as I'm not really a big fan of foundation. I work that into my skin with a Real Techniques powder brush. I absolutely love the finish it gives me as I, like I said, am more of a fan of minimal/mineral make-up. Next thing I use is the NARS Laguna bronzer, the holy grail of probably nearly every person who loves make-up. I just use this and a Zoeva Luxe Face Definer brush to contour my face a bit and to make my face look like I just came back from a holiday in Spain. Which by the way would be an awesome thing to happen right now. 

Next up are my eyes. I usually go for eyeliner but lately I've been trying to use eyeshadows a bit more, which actually scares me. So I tend to grab my Maybelline Colour tattoo eyeshadow in On and On bronze. After staring at my eyes for a good 5 minutes, debating whether my eyes look all right or not, I usually move on to mascara. I'm currently using the Maxfactor False Lash Effect mascara in black, which I actually love. I didn't think I would get on with this at all, but after using it a few times I actually like it as much as the L'Oreal telescopic!  Now I completely forgot to include this in the photograph but I usually also use an eyebrow powder. I'm currently using the Catrice Eyebrow set which, for now, is my best friend. 

Then I move on to my lips and if I feel like it, I'll use this Cremesheen lipstick from MAC in Shanghai Spice which is just a perfect nude for me.If  I don't feel up for a lipstick I'll just pop a bit of Carmex lipbalm on my lips. Lastly, If I feel up to it I'll paint my nails. I painted my nails with this Rimmel London Salon Pro by Kate in Rock 'n Roll which is just a really nice red for this time of the year. I'm a big fan of red nail polish!

Et voila. That's what I currently go back to a lot when I'm not feeling the BB cream and eyeliner. Now please excuse my puffy face and eyes in the second photo, I'm currently suffering from the worse sore throat in the world and my glands and general face are swollen so that's why I look like Mrs Puff from Spongebob Squarepants. Good times.
