Here’s my very first Face Time post. After many requests to share what I wear on my face, I plucked up the courage to do just that. I love these types of posts, so I hope you enjoy mine! Please excuse the hair, it’s still a little wet in this photo. If you must know why, I very rarely use a hairdryer!
Let’s start with the base. I used my new Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser in bisque. For a tinted moisturiser it gives the most incredible coverage, without being caky, or heavy on the skin. It also really helps to minimise my pores and it leaves my skin looking super healthy. A full review is on it’s way! I also used the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow to give my face a little more shape and definition. I then popped a little bit of the highlighter to the tops of my cheekbones. This kit may be a little pricey, but it is so worth it and by far my favourite contour duo. I then swept a little Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso onto my cheeks. And for under my eyes, I went to my go to concealer Benefits Erase Paste, you can read a full review here.
On the brows I used my Benefit Brow Zings in light. Its a duo eyebrow set, with a tinted wax and powder. But recently I have just been using the powder alone with an angled brush, as I find the wax can make brows appear a little red.
On my eyes I used my LORAC Pro Palette. I absolutely love this palette, it has converted me and made me a lover of matte eyeshadows, they are super smooth, blend seamlessly and are really pigmented. I used 'light pink' all over the lid and put a little ‘taupe' into the crease. This is an eyeshadow combo I have been gravitating towards a lot recently. I then took Soap and Glory Supercat eyeliner along my upper lash line and created a small flick (I can’t go without!). I find this eyeliner is really easy to work with and remains super black whether applied straight to the lid, or on top of eyeshadow. I then applied lashings of bareMinerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara.
To finish the look, I opted for Mac Peach Blossom lipstick. I have worn this lipstick to death over the last 3 months! I can’t get enough of it. It's very close to my natural lip colour but with a hint of peach. It instantly makes my lips appear much fuller than they really are.
