Whats on my Face February Edit

Whats on my Face February Edit
My Skin literally goes on its own roller-coaster every week, so I never take a good skin day for granted! With the winter nights, lack of sunshine and recent over eating of chocolate, my skin is definitely in a bit of a slump, so I've been really trying to pair my makeup back. My skin has become dryer than usual, so I've been really focusing on trying to get a bright, dewy finish, and (before I speak too soon) I think I may have found a pretty good little collection for me, so I thought I'd share my current every day makeup with you.

1. Base

Since the heatwave we had in the summer of 2018, (which we are all praying to the sun gods will make a reappearance in the summer of 2019!) I've really gone off fuller coverage foundations. Its probably just me and my potential lack of knowledge, but its never seems to sit right on my skin, and the heat meant it essentially just dripped off my face. Nice. So I had a proper look round for a lighter
Coverage, glowy formula. I found the La Roche-Effaclar Duo+ Unifiant, and literally never looked back! It Targets oily and acne prone skin, while controlling the production of sebum and correct the appearance of blemishes. Its basically a tinted magical potion and I never really feel like I'm wearing makeup when I've got this on. I use the colour light, but unfortunately I've found that its become too dark over the winter, when  sun deprived skin got paler, so I went back to the Glossier Skin Tint, I wrote about this in my recent Glossier Post, and though its not my favourite product, the colour is perfect so is going a good enough job of create the finish I like right now :)

2. Bronze

If I'm feeling particularly sassy, I tend to reach for the Rimmel Insta Contour Stick. When this is blended in, it creates a natural but striking contour. But 9 times out of 10, each day i'll be reaching for the Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder. This is a matte bronzer that is buildable, meaning you can go as natural or as "just walked off the plane from the Maldives" as you like. As I love the whole bronzed goddess vibe, and rarely reach for blusher. it is peeeerfect!

3. Eyes 

When I'm in a rush, I usually tend to sweep my bronzer over each lid and I'm pretty much good to go, but when I have a bit more time on my hand, I've absolutely been the loving the Charlotte Tilbury Exagger- Eyes Pallet. This is a warm neutral pallet with a beautifully glittery shade to spice things up. on a daily basis, I find the glitter to be too much for a day in the office, but add it on top after work and you've gone from a subtle day look  to party ready night look in a sweep! My Eyeliner is the Maybelline Hyper Precise All Day Liner. I tend to go backwards and forwards between gel and a liner pen, and at the moment I am strongly for the pen! I find this one so quick and easy to apply but still has a strong, true black colour. My mascara is one that has seen me through the ages. I have worn this since I was about 18, and no matter what else I try, I always come back to the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. Available in both brown and black, it has a full colour and builds well adding length and a lovely natural curl. for an every day look, I find this little beauty to be absolutely stunning.

4. Brows

My brows are naturally quite dark, so I tend not to fill them in too much. I've found the NYX Micro Brown Pencil to be perfect for just filling in any little gaps. I use the colour Brunette, and with the pencil its self being so tiny, it creates a natural, full look to my brows. I don't really take much care when doing my brows, I just fill in any sparse bits, but I would defiantly say this product would be great if you're more of a brow wiz!

5. Lips

If I'm not wearing my trusty Glossier Balm.com, I can guarantee I'll be wearing my MAC Liptensity Lipstick in Smoked Almond. This is a rich, highly pigmented lipstick that sinks in to leave a beautiful satin finish. This colour is fairly neutral, but leaves the lips moisturised and stays put all day.

So there you have it, my quick everyday go to products. I'm always on the look for new product to try, so I'd love to hear your recommendations for quick, lightweight makeup to try!

Thanks for reading,
