Makeup Bag Mix Up

Sunday, April 07, 2013

I have far too much makeup and often a lot of it goes unloved so I thought I'd try and mix things up each week by using different products and share with you some of my favorites.

I'll try to post my weekly products on a Sunday so for the coming week I'll mainly be using these products;

  • Diorskin Nude 001 (£32.00) - A light-medium coverage and gives a lovely radiant look, I normally wear full coverage in the winter but now we are moving onto Summer (well, hopefully we are, come on Mr Sunshine) I like to switch to something lighter.
  • YSL Touche Eclat 01 (£25.00)- I adore my Touche Eclat, anything that makes me look like I've had a full nights sleep when in fact I've been up til 5am is a godsend in my books.
  • Collection Pressed Powder in Ivory (£1.99) - I bought this when I forgot my usual powder one day at work, Its not amazing but not bad either, I need to use it up.

  • Benefit Brow Zings Medium (£23.50) - I mostly use the wax from this kit to smooth down my brows, I use the brown powder for nights out.
  • Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake in Stark (£14.50) -I'm a natural redhead so Stark is perfect for everyday wear for me. I like to darken it down slightly by mixing with the wax from my Brow Zings.
  • Illamasqua Powder Blush in Disobey (£18.00) - My go-to contouring shade I use this daily its great.
  • Illamasqua Powder Blush in Lover (£18.00) - amazing peach shade which really brightens up the face, perfect for Spring/Summer.

  • Urban Decay Smoked Palette (£35.00)- I've been using this constantly recently. All the shades are right up my street as I love to rock a smokey eye so this is perfect for me. 
  • YSL Black Shocking Mascara (£23.50) - I really like the lift and curl I get from this mascara, its super black too. I'll definitely be getting the full size when this runs out.
  • YSL Dessin du Regard Waterproof in Black Ink (£19.00)- I like to wear this on my waterline, once its on it doesn't budge and stays incredibly black
  • Illamasqua Abyss Precision Ink (£17.00) - Hands down the best black liquid eyeliner on the market, I cannot recommend this enough.

  • Blistex Relief Cream (£2.25) - My lips are always chapped in the winter and this is a lifesaver, its really effective to relieve cracked or dry lips.
  • Benefit Lipstick in Do Tell (£14.00) - A lovely wearable mauve shade, I've been neglecting this recently but its too pretty to stay stuck in the back of the drawer.
  • MAC Cremesheen Glass in Deelight (£17.00) - One of my favourite lipglosses, Not at all sticky and surprisingly pigmented, I can't get enough of the vanilla Scent. I really need a new one as this is almost empty.

Which products will you be wearing this week?
