What I’ve Been Wearing This Week

This week I’ve been wearing a mixture of new products, old favourites and some that I had forgotten about.  It’s quite an easy one that looks really beautiful, if I do say so myself.

For the base I moisturised my face then used my Cyber Colors Zero Prime primer, which i forgot to photograph.  After that I have been using the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin in 10 Ivory, I am really enjoying this foundation it quickly evens out my skin tone and lasts all day which is what I need when I have a long day at uni or work.  As I’ve said in other posts I’ve been having late nights and early mornings so I have been using my trusty concealer combination of Napoleon Perdis The One Concealer and Maybelline Dark Circle Eraser in Light.  The combination of these two products completely conceals my dark, dark circles, thank the lord for that!  For powder I used my trusty ol’ Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent,  this sets my foundation as well as helping it last throughout the day.  I haven’t been using a lot of bronzer lately so I used the NYX Powder Blush in Taupe to contour and add some definition to my face.  For cheeks I’ve been using Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Amused, although the colour looks shockingly pink it actually looks quite natural giving a subtle flush.  I used The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer to add some shimmer on my cheekbones and nose.

Now time for eyes!  I’ve recently rediscovered the Bobbi Brown Navy and Nude Eye Palette, I had forgotten how beautiful this looks on the eyes so I’ve really enjoyed wearing this for the past week.  I used the light taupe shade all over the lid then the darker shade blended into the crease, for some drama I smudged the stunning navy shade into the top lash line and if I was feeling daring I would smudge it into the bottom as well.  For lashes I used Covergirl Clump Crusher Extensions in Black, I love this mascara!  It completely separates the lashes and and extreme length, it almost looks like I’m wearing falsies.  Finally for brows I used the Essence Brow Pencil in Brunette, this is a great budget friendly eyebrow pencil which is doing a brilliant job at filling my brows in.

I didn’t include a lip product in the photo as I normally change it up during the week but I tended to favour my good ol’ NYX Matte Lipstick in Audrey.  I just can’t go past this lipstick at the moment!  It’s just a fantastic finish to a look without adding too much drama.
