Here’s today’s makeup menu:
Top right going clockwise:
Laura Mercier Silk Cream Foundation – A little of this stuff goes a long way! Semi matte finish and fuller coverage foundation.
Clarins Instant Concealer – one of the best under eye concealers on the market. Has a slightly peachy undertone, which helps cover a dark under eye area.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade – This stuff rules if used properly. Make sure you comb the colour through the brow and distribute the colour. (I’m not a huge fan on the ombré, overly drawn on – Instagram brow)
Fresh Sugar Lip balm in Plum – I adore this lip colour for fall. It’s super hydrating and looks like an enhanced natural darker lip.
RMS beauty skin2skin Foundation Brush – I picked this sucker up at Sara Lindsay Makeup Studio. Sara told me Rose Marie Swift (RMS) designed the brush to emulate your finger tips to apply product. Great for the under eye area and buffing concealer around spots.
Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher – I knew the Charlotte Tilbury line would be good, but I didn’t believe it would be THIS good. The Retoucher pen is so hydrating (which is great for under eye), it has just the right amount of illuminator, and covers mild spots very well.
Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Epresso Ink – I’ve been without a gel liner for quite some time now. After I lost my favourite Elizabeth Arden Gel Liner (which is discontinued) I haven’t bothered to invest in a good one. This lives up to the hype! I always have issues with eyeliners smudging but this one stays put! Application is super easy too.
Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmurize in Marie Antoniette – HEAVEN. Devine texture, excellent pigmentation, easy application! The colour is so dreamy. I also own Cleopatra, which can be frustrating to apply because the dry time is quite long. But this particular colour is so EASY! Top 3 eyeshadow in my books!
Physicians Formula Multi Colour Custom Face Bronzer – A lovely matte bronzer. Great formula, easy to use. A+
Clinique High Impact Mascara – I like Clinique mascaras. This one is lengthening and thickening. Isn’t a runny consistency. Does the job *thumbs up*
