The Make Up: May 2015

1.5.15



 



The Make Up. This is going to become a bit of a series here on my blog. Every month, you'll get any insight into what i've been dolling myself up with recently! So here goes..

Now, if you know me, you know I love minimal make up however, this month i'm spicing things up a bit with a bit of shadow and an unusual lip colour for little ol' me.

My base is Bourjois Healthy Mix. This is a beautiful foundation, giving you a healthy looking glow and feeling really light on this skin. The great thing about it is that it still has brilliant coverage fort those blemishes you want to cover. If I'm feeling a bit oily then I'll add a bit of powder using my Mac Mineralize Skin Finish in Natural. It's perfect for just matte-fying your look.

My mascara, is my all time favourite, Benefit They're Real, making my lashes super duper curly. Then for shadow i've been dipping into my beautiful palette and using Mac Cork Eye shadow. I love the way that the brown tone brings out the blue in my eyes and creates a bit of a smoky look.

To contour i love my Nars Laguna Bronzer, i just think it's great for all skin tones, even if you're as pale as me!

To fill in my brows i use a Mac Eye Brow Pencil or any old pencil really, i'm too fussy when it comes to what i use to do my brows. However, i'd really love some suggestions! Should i give Soap and Glory a go?

On my lips is where things might shock you. There isn't a red lipstick *gasp*! Yes, recently i've been loving Mac's Kinda Sexy, a matte nude (not usually my style) and i've really enjoyed wearing it.

For fragrance, i've been enjoying Valentina by Valentino! It's a lovely floral fragrance, great for spring.

I really hope you like this post and the concept, let me know!
