This poor blog has been very neglected. I didn't realise how long it had been since I had written anything here. I don't know why I stopped. I still love makeup as much as ever and love reading and writing about it. I have some work to do updating my blog and will get on to this too. My poor blog is looking very basic compared to what else is out there!
I did struggle to find a topic to start back with so maybe just a quick and easy one with a run down of my everyday makeup at the moment. Ease me and you back into it!
I have been getting into the habit of using a Primer and the one I like for daytime at the moment is by Too Faced and is called the Hangover Primer. I apply this after moisturiser to give a good base for my foundation.
My foundation has been the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation which I really like but feel it's a bit matte for summer. I have just bought a new foundation by YSL - their Touche Eclat Le Teint. I haven't used this yet so I can't give you any feedback on how I find it but will let you know what I think. Today, I used my Bobbi Brown BB cream which I really like for summer as it's nice and light.
Concealer next and I still like my Bobbi Brown colour corrector in Bisque which I love for helping to disguise my black circles. My old favourite Collection concealer has been my go-to but I have picked up the Touche Eclat and plan to give this a try again. I forgot how much I like it when I tried it out. I then powder a little bit as my skin seems to be quite oily at the moment - can I blame hormones! I have the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish powder.
Bronzer is next and I do love a good bit of Bronze. I have the Tom Ford one in Gold Dust which I find is the perfect shade. It is expensive but it is also very big! I am also a big blusher fan and at the moment I am liking the Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic in Love Glow.
I do my brows next and I adore the Benefit Gimme Brow. I then move on to shadow. I use the Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr in On and on Bronze as a base/Primer then I apply my eyeshadow. Currently, I am using the first Naked Palette by Urban decay as I love a bronze/brown eye. I do go for quite a strong eye and I use the black liquid eyeliner by Collection which is by far the best I have ever used. Lastly, a bit of black eye pencil in the waterline and at the moment I am using a Top Shop one. Last but definitely not least where eyes are concerned is mascara and for daytime at the moment I am using Maybelline's The Falsies Push Up Drama in black.
I vary in my lipstick choices from a nude to a bright. I have recently bought one of the Stylo lipsticks by Hourglass in the shade Creator which I find is the perfect nude/natural shade for me. Or if I am going for something brighter which I often do I like to go for a Coral in summer. For the last few days I have been wearing Stay With Me Coral by Maybelline and my other favourite is Lost Cherry by Charlotte Tilbury.
This does sound and look a lot but it takes me 15 minutes at the most to apply it all.
I have really enjoyed writing this blog post and have reminded myself why I started my blog in the first place.
