Makeup Medley #2

Saturday, March 8, 2014

This past week I have fallen back in love with the Revlon Colour Stay Whipped Foundation. The shade Buff is the perfect colour for my complexion and I feel as if I've never found such a good colour match! It can be quite the thick full coverage foundation, which isn't usually my go-to choice. I've been using a small bit and blending it throughout my face to make sure it is more of a light to medium coverage. This foundation lasts ages and I can't get over how spot on the colour choice is! I bought this last year and I use it mostly throughout the winter months, and I'm sad to say the glass container is almost empty.

To set my foundation I have been using the Smashbox Halo Yellow Colour Correcting Powder, which I can't seem to find online anymore so I really hope it hasn't been discontinued. I do tend to get quite a pink tint to my skin which I'm not the biggest fan of and I find the yellow colour correcting shade of this powder sorts that out perfectly! If it is still available, I really do recommend this or a yellow powder in general. For blush it'll come as no surprise that I went with a Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush as I absoutely love these blushes! Today's blush choice was in the shade Exposed which adds the perfect subtle warmth back into my complexion.

For my eyes I primed with my Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in the shade Birthday Suit which sadly I forgot to photograph, and then I reached for my Urban Decay Naked palette and selected the shade Sidecar which is almost the exact shade as the Benefit Birthday Suit. I find layering these two together make a beautiful taupe shimmer shade without all the fallout that Sidecar has on its own. I then took the shade Virgin and placed that on my inner corners of my eyes and also on my brow bone. Then with a small pencil brush I took the shade Toasted and ever so lightly placed that under my lower lash line for a *slight* amount of colour. Then lining my eyes with my L'Oreal Super Slim 12 Hour Eyeliner and adding a light coating of Maybelline Falsies Mascara my eyes were complete.

On my lips I used my Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte lipstick in the shade Nude Beige which is number 1. I did a review of this lipstick, which was actually my second ever posting on this blog, and you can read it right here.

    1. It's very minimal makeup but that's what I usually wear anyway :) I've debated getting the Naked 2 so many times!
