Today, on the skincare menu, I have my all time favourite cleanser, the famous Cleanse & Polish (*) from Liz Earle. I’m then toning my skin with Instant Boost Skin Tonic, also from the same brand, I really should get a full size bottle of this stuff, it’s just so good for soothing and refreshing the skin. Next up, I have the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo (*) to clarify and ease out imperfections, the condition of my skin has improved vastly after using this, so I highly recommend it. For moisturiser, I’m using the Garnier Miracle Cream (*) which adapts to my skin tone when applying and creates a lovely radiant base.
On the make up menu, I started off with The Body Shop Instablur (*) to prime my skin, then painted on the PIXI H20 Skin Tint (*). I really, really love this tinted moisturiser, it gives the most flawless and natural finish while remaining light-weight. Dusting off with a bit of Jurlique Rose Powder (*), my base is now complete.
On to the eyes, I used the new NARS Dual-Intensity Eyeshadows in the shades Callisto and Dione (*). Currently exclusive to Space NK and, rolling out to all NARS counters in August, these eyeshadows are so pigmented and velvety, they glide on like a dream. Depending on how intense you want the colour, they can be applied dry or with a damp brush and last absolutely without a crease in sight. I always line with MAC Kohl Eye Pencil first and put liquid liner over the top, at the moment, I’m loving the Loreal Super Liner. To fill in my brows, I will have to go with Urban Decay‘s Brow Box, it is by far the best brow powder I have ever tried. My mascara of choice is the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde (*), the bristles are so gentle and coat each lash creating definition and volume.
Almost done now, just a touch of blush from NARS again, Deep Throat is one of the best shades from the range, a cute flirty peach, that’s perfect for everyday wear. On my lips, I’m wearing Maybelliene‘s Mega Watt Lipstick (*), which is a neon pink with a slight blue hues. The formula is matte and when I first swatched it on my hand, I thought it was really drying, but when I applied it properly on to my lips, it gave the most gorgeous colour and actually glided on nicely.
What do you think of the finished look?
