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!

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.

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.

Review: Nude by Nature Flawless Foundation

Hello beauties,

Some of you may have seen Nude by Nature’s new foundation popping up on your Insta feed- think sleek, rose gold packaging. The new Flawless Foundation* is Nude by Nature’s latest addition to their existing foundation line. If you didn’t know, Nude by Nature’s Mineral Cover is the best selling foundation at Priceline. So of course my expectations were pretty high for this new foundation.

What Nude by Nature says about the Flawless Foundation, “the Flawless Liquid Foundation instantly provides a smooth and flawless finish but looks and feels like a second skin thanks to natural pigments that act in seamless affinity with the complexion. The oil free and fragrance free formula is buildable from a medium to flawless coverage, is long wearing and gives the skin an even, satin matte finish.”

Real Techniques Sponges*

Now you all know my love for Real Techniques! They’re slaying it when it comes to product innovations. The latest addition to the line are some new sponges. The large one is targeted for the body and contouring, the flat ones are for blotting, the little purple ones are for concealing then the one that’s most intriguing is a sponge for cleansing your face… Now the cleansing sponge has me most intrigued, so I’ll let you know how I go with it. Personally I think its just gimmicky…

NYX Comsetics* 

NYX are on fire when it comes to new launches. I’m so excited to try their new eyeshadow palette- Lid Lingere, their new setting powder called #nofilter sanfilter and of course their new foundation, Total Control Foundation. They also introduced a new matching foundation brush that looks like a buffing brush but has a small hole in the middle to hold the foundation. It reminds me of the Bare Minerals brush… Review of the new foundation coming soon.
