Ok, so today has mainly been a reading day to prepare for tomorrow, so I got distracted by makeup!
I didn’t really use much on my face, as I couldn’t be bothered and my skin was looking pretty good! I added some Soap and Glory kick ass concealer in light under my eyes using an ecotools concealer brush. I love the ecotools brushes, and have most of them – they are so soft and very good value. I still can’t decide if the Soap and Glory concealer is better than the Collection lasting perfection, but the more peachy colour correcting side suits my skin slightly better. I enhanced my skin with the Bourjois Bronzing Primer, which is one of my new favourites. I love the finish and it smells divine. I used Bourjois Healthy Balance powder (depotted into the vintage compact) to set.
I patted some Bourjois Cream Blush in 02 Healthy glow on my cheekbones and set it with the coral side of Sleek’s blush by 3 in Lace. I kept a light hand, as I didn’t want to look overdone for a day look. I am in love with the Bourjois cream blush – the texture is perfect and not too sticky and I think that the colour is really flattering.
Simply, I used Rimmel scandaleyes shadow stick in bulletproof beige to prime my lids and blended it out with an Ecotools eyeshaddow blending brush. I set it with the lighter colour from my current favourite eyeshadow duo – Estee Lauder Pure Colour in 12 Raisins, and the darker plum colour through the crease. I love the packaging so much and the colours really set off my green eyes (you can’t tell in the picture below). I finished this with Clinique lash power mascara on the lower lashes and No7 Extreme length mascara on the top. I chose these because they don’t give that much extra volume, giving a more natural and relaxed look to the eyes. Finally, I put Rimmel Scandal eyes waterproof Kohl liner in nude on my waterline to cancel out any redness. I considered a black/brown gel, but couldn’t be bothered for a daytime look! I finished off my brows with a touch of Rimmel pro eyebrow pencil in 01 dark brown to neaten my brows and fill in the odd gap.
Finally, I worked Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in 01 Red Sunrise onto my lips using a lip brush. This isn’t really necessary, but I like the more stained, worked-in look, and this is the easiest way to achieve it. I enjoy the colours of these products and they may be slightly more long lasting than their Revlon counterparts, but, in my opinion, the colour range is no where near as good. If I were you, I would choose by colour, not brand in this case.
Here is a rubbish webcam shot of the finished product:
Excuse my sunburnt nose, poor lighting and bad camera!
