Today’s make-up …

FullSizeRender 311

This week, I thought I would share my everyday make-up look with you .

After prepping  my skin I first applied Tanya Burr Cosmetics Face Illuminator.  This has been a fairly new discovery for me and I love it because it gives a subtle sheen but doesn’t look too much.

Next, one of the foundations I am using at the moment, No 7 Lift and Luminate foundation in shade Cool Ivory.  This foundation does not dry the skin at all, and is easy to blend.  I usually apply my foundation with a brush, and then I might go over it with a beauty blender if it needs it.


The concealer I used today is Kick Ass Concealer from Soap & Glory.  This is a great concealer, or rather two concealers.  It also has an excellent setting powder which I do use under my eyes to stop any creasing.

Next, I take my largest powder brush and sweep Soap & Glory’s Glow All Out luminzing highlighting powder all over my face.  I know its meant to be a highlighter, but I think it is quite subtle and it gives a great glow.FullSizeRender 302

The bronzer I used is from Bourjois.  Their Mat Illusion Bronzing Powder I have been using for over a year and I haven’t really found a better one.FullSizeRender 304

I don’t always use a highlighter during the day, but it was so gloomy today that I thought I would.  The Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette from NYX is a great palette.  So many different highlighters in this palette.  I used the gold shade on the lower left.FullSizeRender 301

My blusher is a cream chubby stick from Clinique in the shade 01 Amp’d up Apple.  Gorgeous shade.FullSizeRender 307

On my brows, I used Benefit Gimme Brow in the shade light/medium.  FullSizeRender 305

On my eyes I used the Redemption Palette Iconic 1 from Revolution.  I love the shades in this palette and I used the first and third shades from the left.FullSizeRender 303

I used a pencil waterproof eyeliner from Marcelle, in the shade Espresso.FullSizeRender 298

Dior Pump ‘n’ Volume mascara in shade 090 (black) is my latest favourite mascara.  It really does make a difference to the length and thickness of your lashes.

Finally, and it does feel like I’ve used a lot of products, the lipstick is Dior Addict 680 After Party.  This lipsticks are well named as I fear I have become addicted to them!

So that was todays look.  I apologise for the state of the hair, but growing out the grey is taking forever.  I reckon I still have another year to 18 months before I am free of the dyed ends.

Have a great week everyone.
