It’s time again to show you what I’ve been wearing and loving this week. I haven’t had much on this week, I have just been attached to my laptop as it’s the end of semester and of course all of my assignments are due at once! When I have ventured out in public looking at little worse for wear this has been my go to look.
For my base I’ve been using my trust old Cyber Colors Zero Pore Primer – I know I can’t trust this to make my makeup last all day with minimum shine woohoo! For foundation I have discovered a new go to base, it’s the Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturiser to that I add 1-2 drops of the Cover FX Custom Cover Drops-I love this tinted moisturiser but sometimes it just isn’t enough coverage for me so the custom cover drops really up the ante coverage wise and give me quite a full coverage yet light feeling look. As I’ve been studying pretty hard and not getting a whole lot of sleep i’ve been sticking to my holy grail dark circle covering duo Napoleon Perdis The One Concealer and Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser – I just know I can trust this duo to cover all manner of darkness so its been my absolute go to at the moment.
To set all this I have been using the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder – this keeps me matte whilst making my makeup last considerably longer. To add some colour to my face I’ve been favouring an oldie but a goodie its Milani Baked Powder Blush in Luminoso – This adds a subtle pinky peach colour to my cheeks plus a bit of shimmer so there is not need for a highlight in this case. What a time saver!
For the eyes I used one of my absolute favourite eyeshadow palettes, I originally didn’t know how I felt about the pink shades when I first got this but as soon as it was in my hands I fell in love! They are such beautiful shades and looking stunning on my eyelids. I turn to this palette a lot. So for this look I placed Burnout all over the lids the place a mixture of Liar and Factory in the crease, this is quite a subtle girly look but the darkness in the crease really adds some dimension to the eye. I also put a touch of Dust in the inner corner of my eye.
Now I didn’t want to really do a thick liner or anything so I just tightlined my top lashine with the Charlotte Tilbury Rock N Kohl in Barbarella Brown – This makes my lashes look fuller without a proper liner look. As I said I’ve been studying a lot so my eyes are quite tired and red so I decided to really brighten them up with the Charlotte Tilbury Rock N Kohl in Eye Cheat – this Charlotte Tilbury one is the only skin coloured eyeliner that seems to stay on my waterline all day so I absolutely love it! For mascara I’ve been using my trusty old Covergirl Clump Crusher Extensions – I just love this mascara, I mean don’t get me wrong I love some high end mascaras but every single time I go back to my Covergirl Clump Crusher I just fall back in love with it! Plus this is the only mascara I can use on my bottom lashes that won’t smudge! Finally for eyebrows I used something quick and easy, Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Taupe – I can quickly do my brows with this and as the colour isn’t too dark its quite hard to make a mistake with it and on top of that I used the Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep – this just darkens the pencil up a bit to match my hair and sets those things in place!
Now I haven’t mentioned lipstick but I haven’t really been wearing any, as its winter my lips have been so dry that I’ve just been sticking to lip balm
So that’s what I’ve been wearing this week! What have you been loving this week?
