Make Up: The Winter Edit


I love looking at what other people are actually using on a daily basis, the things they reach for day in and day out, because sometimes it isn't always the things we are reviewing, or new in etc. Sometimes it is a fall back favourite... so here is what is currently being used at the moment, hope you enjoy :)


Base 

I have been in love with my YSL Blur Primer over the past few months, it is such a good product to set your skin with. For foundation I have been using up my Estee Lauder Double Wear in the shade 1N1, this still isn't my absolute favourite, but I need to use it up before I think about getting anything else. To it's defence I do enjoy it - beautiful finish... but I prefer Nars Sheer Glow... (Sorry!) 

For concealer I have still been using my trusty Urban Decay Naked Concealer. Without a doubt the best concealer I have ever used. For setting powder I typically reach for the Vichy Loose Setting Powder* to bake, then the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder in Diffused Light

Bronzer I have been obsessed with my Chanel Tan De Chanel, this is hyped for a reason, it is stunning! Blends beautifully and just sets to perfection. Everyone should have this in their stash :) As for Contour it is all about the Sleek Contour Palette. I have now hit pan on the darkest shade - the only downside is you need to repurchase the full palette when you finish one! :( 

Blush I have been reaching for the Becca Christmas Palette, especially the shade wisteria, a perfect mauve toned pinky purple. Then highlighting with Becca's Collaboration with Jaclyn Hill - Champagne Pop. Stunning. Perfection. I then finish off using Gerard Cosmetic Slay All Day Spray in Peach Scent!




Eyes

I always use my MAC paint pot in Soft Ochre for an eye base now, it is perfect for my skin tone. For eyeshadow it is typically my MAC x6 palette, I love Amber Lights, Sumptuous Olive & Red Brick. It is just my perfect colours and formula. Liner is my trusted Seventeen Wet Look Liner, I just cannot find anything better than this one, and I think I have stopped even looking for anything else! Then the Grandiose Mascara from Lancome - which is really nice (but not worth £25!) 





LIPS

I have been loving MAC lip liner "Edge to Edge" with Dior 772 "Classic" Lipstick. Perfection in a lip shade, but if I have a warm eye it has been the Chanel Lipstick in 174. I don't think I have worn anything else over the past month, and I cannot see the obsession going anywhere anytime soon!



What have you been using recently? Do you tried any of these? Let me know :)

  1. The Dior 772 Classic is so nice, the perfect shade between an almost berry and a pinky red. I have been so into warmer eye shadows lately and even in the summer time I think it's great!

    1. Please do not advertise to this extent on mine, or others blog posts. If you would like me to read your comment at least show me you have read mine, or follow me to show me how you "love it" this type of copy and paste commenting will not get you anywhere in the blogging community. Just an FYI.

  5. I did like the finish of Double Wear but I got totally the wrong shade matched to my face (think it was almond?) and so i was walking around for months with a face that looked orange AND ashen at the same time! I mixed it with sheer glow to tone it down a bit until it was finally used up. I've almost finished up the matching EL concealer which I use to colour correct since its so orange but honestly, the experience puts me off even trying DW again. I do love Nars sheer glow but my favourite foundation has to be Armani's Luminous Silk in 4 - best foundation out there!

    1. Oh no!! nothing worse than having the wrong shade, I think I would cry! No wonder you have been put off! I keep seeing people talk about Luminous silk and it might just have to happen once my DW is finished! Heard a few people rave about it! Just need to get matched for it! - wish there was a counter nearby :(
