Some people might think that wearing makeup everyday is too much, and I can understand that to a degree. Personally, I think you should do whatever makes you happy and more confident and if that means putting on some concealer and mascara, I say go for it! Talking about myself, I like to put on makeup only if I'm going somewhere where I think it'd be nice to look a bit more put together, so when I'm at home I don't bother doing anything. But to each, their own!
If I do feel like making an effort for everyday use, I tend to put a pump of the Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer on my hand and then spread that across my face using my fingers. After that, I reach for my beloved MaxFactor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation. I've been using this foundation for more than a year now and it's definitely the best drugstore foundation that I have come across so far. So much so, that I own this in two shades: Golden and Bronze, depending on the season. Then I love to take my Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer and apply that right underneath my eyes, as well as on the bridge of my nose to highlight and give a bit more dimension to my face.
To make sure that my face is set and it will HOPEFULLY stay on all day, I like to set it using the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent. I then apply a tiny bit of bronzer to add some warmth to my face. I'm currently loving the Bourjouis Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder, for a more subtle and natural look. To finish off my face, if I have the time, I might even use my MAC blush in Margin, a peach toned blush with very subtle golden shimmer which gives you a very natural glow.
I usually never have time to put anything on my eyes except for mascara (at the moment I'm using L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara), but when I do, I like to use one of the Maybelline New York Color Tattoo 24hr Gel Cream Eyeshadows as they're so easy and quick to apply with your fingers. I then take a blending brush and just blend the edges. My most used ones are On and On Bronze and Pink Gold. To finish off, I put on NYX Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake on my lips and I run out the door!
That's it! What about you? Do you wear makeup everyday? And if you do, what are some of your mostly used products? Let me know in the comments!
Until next time,
First of all, I apologize for not posting last week but I needed some time off for myself and to spend with family during the Easter break. But, today to make up for that, I thought I could talk to you about the latest eyeshadow palette to join my collection (as if I need anymore!) I do think I'm quite late with this one as I believe it was first released back in November of 2015, but I still thought I would share my opinion about it so far, just in case you're still interested in getting it.
Gwen Stefani collaborated with Urban Decay on this palette to design one that would have all of her must-have shadows. To be honest with you, when I first heard about this, I imagined that this would include a lot of vibrant colourful shadows which I'm too scared to experiment with. However, to my delight I saw that most of the shades were neutrals (definitely up my street!). I love all my Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes, in fact they're among my favourites! So, when I ordered this one from FeelUnique I hoped that it would not disappoint. And, it definitely didn't!
The shades include:
Personally, I love the choice of matte and shimmery neutrals (obviously!) but surprisingly I also love the two colourful shades (Danger and 1987) as they have urged me to experiment slightly more with vibrant colours. I have tried both on my lower lash line and they've added such a nice little touch of edge to my looks. The shades are all insanely pigmented, very soft and blendable and the amount of different looks that you can create with this is unbelievable. The detail on the packaging is also so beautiful and well thought out!
This has become one of my all time favourite eyeshadow palettes! It's great for everyday, yet it can still be used for more smokey looks for a good night out! Would I recommend it? Definitely! If I had to recommend only one palette from Urban Decay, it would probably be this one! I think that it is worth the money (and also the hype).
