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.

Beauty Faves of 2017

Hello beauties,

Can you believe another year done and dusted? I can’t! 2017 has been an interesting year for the blogging community, changes to Instagram, marketing and disclosure rules and of course a bit of controversy. But through it all I still love it, because I get to talk to you about all my passions.

For 2018, I want to continue to branch out and focus more on fashion. I hope you’ll continue to stick it out with me. Of course beauty will still be my first love, but I don’t want to restrict myself and bore you with the same old. On that note, I’ve decided to stop monthly faves on the blog. I’ll still do it but on Instagram either through a post or Insta Stories. Comment below with your thoughts x

Anyway, moving on from the rambling intro to my well loved beauty products of 2017.

Ultraceuticals*

I’m not even going to specify the products because honestly it’s the combination of multiple products and regular Ultra treatments that has left me with the best skin I’ve had in years. Click here for my experiences with Ultraceuticals.

Makeup of the Day: Bridal Makeup

Hello beauties,

As most of you know, I decided to do my own makeup for the wedding. I’m such a control freak and know what I like so I wanted to do my makeup myself. No offence to makeup artists, but whenever I’ve had my makeup done I feel its too heavy and I don’t look like myself. On my wedding day, the key was to look like myself. So get a cup of tea, coffee or wine, its gonna be a long post!

Cover FX Blurring Primer*

Kat Von D Lock It Foundation* and Nude by Nature Flawless Foundation*

Unexpected combo but I really liked it. Both are medium to full coverage and last really well when used together. I mixed about a pump of each which was more than enough.

Thin Lizzy Crème Concealer- Pacific Sun*

Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit- Light*

Of course I wanted some extra chisel, so I used the dark shades to contour under my cheek bones and lightly on my forehead and jaw line.
