Makeup of the Day: Weekend Glam With NYX Cosmetics

Hello beauties,

As I’ve been wearing makeup less frequently throughout the week so I tend to get a bit excited and love to wear some makeup, even if its just to go to the shops. I know, who am I? Anyway I created this look for a review of the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation* and loved the final look so much that I thought I would share all the products I used.

Maybelline Super Stay Primer*

NYX Total Control Drop Foundation*

I used 4 drops of the foundation and used the NYX Total Control Drop Foundation Brush to buff it in. As you can see it is pretty full coverage. You really need to take your time to buff in the foundation to create a seamless base.

Makeup of the Day: 15 Minute Makeup

Hello beauties,

So I wasn’t planning on sharing this makeup look. I literally just whipped it up in 15 minutes, took a few photos and that was going to be the end of it. But after looking at the photos and receiving a lovely compliment from my Fiancé I thought I would share how I created this look. It literally took 15 minutes, maybe less. And don’t even ask how I did it while applying false lashes…

LÓreal Visible Lift and Blur Foundation

Hello beauties,

As you would have seen, I was very lucky to be gifted a lot of new products to try from Sephora. So of course I’ve been busy having a play. With this post, it’s a bit of a first impressions, so let me know if there’s anything you want a detailed review of.

Cover FX Blurring Primer*

This primer reminds me of the Benefit Porfessional. Very similar texture, look and finish.

Kat Von D Lock It Foundation* and Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation

This is my go to combo for full coverage. I mix a bit of both and use a damp Beauty Blender to blend it all out.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination Concealer- Medium*

Now this isn’t my favourite under eye concealer. Yes its full coverage, but I think the reason I don’t love it is because it’s too light for me. Not a criticism of the concealer itself, but just a explanation why I don’t love it.
