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.

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!

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.
