I don’t think I’ve published a blog post since before I went away to America. I have written about 5 posts but haven’t been happy with any of them. I think of myself as my biggest critic in a lot of areas of life and blogging is no exception. I feel very guilty about this but for now and until September I hope to spend more time making sure I am happy with my blog posts and so here is to that start.
My weekday makeup has been pretty regular for about 6 weeks now and I am loving all the products. The only thing that has changed is my lack of face products as I am about 5 shades darker now than I was before I went to the states. So I have been bracing a no base makeup face and spending more time on my eyes. I have also been using two blushes which compliment a tan and eachother perfectly.
But before all the make up I have been giving my face a little spritz with the Urban Decay b6 complexion spray and follow that with my Sarah Chapman Skinesis Hydrating Booster which I have used everyday since I bought it about 7 or so weeks ago and don’t want to use anything else. I am loving the Tom Ford cream blush in the shade 02 Pieno Sole and using my RT Expert Face Brush apply it to the apples of my cheeks and blend it up towards my temples as a sort of bronzer; this is a gorgeous shade and works perfectly where I apply it. on top of that I have been using the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in exposed just on the apples of my cheeks. Again this isn’t an over the top shade but gives a nice natural flush on top of the glow the Tom Ford product gives. If I am slightly oily I will use the hourglass ambient lighting powder in ethereal light but I haven’t been doing this too much unless I know I’ll be working all day and will be getting hot and maybe sweaty (gross).
Now onto eyes I have been starting with my eyebrows and using the Soap and Glory brow archery brow tint in dark chocolate. Next I have been keeping eyeshadow simple with one shadow but also very different for me as it’s quite a copper shade where I’d normally go for browns. But I am really liking it, it is from the Stila Eyes Are The Window palette in Soul and the shade is Affection and I apply it all over the lid. Then for mascara, as always I am using my shu uemura eyelash curler with the lancome hypnose mascara; but for a little change I am trying out the Tarte best in faux lash extending fibers which, I’m not sure is actually working but I’m going to keep trying it on and then will update you.
Finally for lips I have been keeping it simple with my burts bees lip balm and then the Clarins lip perfector in 02
So that is everything on my face right now, what are your go to products right now?
