Makeup of the Day: Understated Glam

Hi Beauties,

I’ve been a bit quiet on the makeup of the day post, mainly because I tend to wear the same makeup. But I’m so happy with this makeup look, what I call understated glam that I wanted to share it with you. I’ll show some slightly different variations so you can see how you can mix it up.

This has been my go to foundation for coverage and longevity. I’ve done a full review here in case you want to check it out.

Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector*

The Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector is my first foray into brightening products and I finally understand all the fuss. Its creamy, easy to use and it actually works! Great to use on days you don’t want to wear makeup but also want some brightness under the eyes.

Travel Makeup For Humid Weather

Hello beauties,

Do you tend to over pack your makeup when you travel? If you answered yes, don’t feel alone, I’m with you sista. Recently I’ve come to the realisation I tend to not wear much makeup when I’m travelling, mainly because I go to hot places and I like to give my skin the opportunity to breath. So when we went on our honeymoon I wanted to bring a few makeup items so I felt pulled together but was also able to withstand the humidity- which I can proudly say they achieved both goals!

Hello beauties,

I saw the lovely Rosa from Lipstick n Linguine do a post about all the beauty products she repurchases and well I just wanted to copy her. As a beauty blogger I get to try so many products, and I think everything is amazing. But lets be real. New products lose their shine and there’s always a handful of products you come back to. Well I’ve got a bit more than a handful…

LÓreal True Match Foundation

When I was in the States I stocked up on this foundation. But luckily for me Australia now stocks my shade- however I haven’t needed to buy it yet as I’m still working through my stash. I use this foundation most days as it provides great coverage and lasts really well throughout the day. Prior to LÓreal True Match I would have said my holy grail foundation was NARS Sheer Glow. But at half the price I can’t complain about LÓreal.
