What's On My Face #1

This is the makeup look that I wore on a warm Spring day. I wanted to go for quite a simple look so I opted for no eyeshadow, nothing on the bottom lash line and a sheer but bright pop of colour on the lips.

To prime my skin I used the Wild About Beauty Botanical Skin Prep Serum, which is one of those fabulous skincare-makeup hydrid products and for my base I used the Chanel Vitalumiere foundation in 40 Beige for quite a dewy finish. I used the Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach under my eyes to counteract dark circles and on any blemishes. I then took a tiny amount of the Liz Earle Light Reflecting Concealer in Medium-Dark to brighten under the eyes. This is a really great product for reflecting light and can be used in the same way as the YSL Touche Eclat, although I personally think this one’s a lot better! I then lightly powdered down my t-zone with the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder in no. 40.

For the eyes I used the Chanel Automatic Liquid Eyeliner in Black on the upper lash line and then applied lashings of my Benefit They’re Real Mascara as well as some of the KIKO Volume Top Coat Mascara for added thickness. I filled my brows in with the No 7 Beautiful Brows Pencil in Brown/Black and locked them into place with the Maybelline Sculpting Brow Mascara in Dark Brown.

To contour my face I went for the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Deep and to highlight I used The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer.

Finally for lips I went for one of my favourite lipsticks of the moment – the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in no. 19. It’s a gorgeous fuchsia colour that can be worn quite sheer like I have here, or built up to be completely opaque.
