So yesterday its fair to say I was feeling pretty horrendous! My beloved Leicester City (Yes a girl that likes football!) got promoted to the Premier League which naturally meant that way too much rose was consumed resulting in a monster hangover. Gross!
This morning however I am feeling mush fresher and thought I would share my Sunday morning look with you all.
To start I primed my face with my favourite primer Smashbox Photo Finish Light and then applied Loreal True Match Foundation with my beauty blender in the shade Golden Sand. I picked this foundation up a few weeks ago from the W7 outlet for a bargain price of £7.99. I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for a while after seeing it used by one of my favourite makeup artists. The shade Golden Sand definitely bears the same undertone as the MAC NW shades and I would say this is between NW25-NW30.
I then applied Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Peach with a Mac 190 brush under the eye area and then a few drops of Mac Lustre Drops on the cheek bones and down the bridge of my nose to brighten and hide any excess hangover.
I contoured using Benefit Hoola Bronzer and used my Mac Studio Fix Powder in NC42 to set it all. I am starting to get a little more tan now so I have switched to Nc42 rather than Nc40. I am enjoying wearing warmer shades of foundation at the moment and in summer I tend to switch from NC to NW as I find sometimes NC can look a little ashy on my skin when I’m tanned.
To finish off I applied Clinique Blush in Precious Posy which gives a really nice rosy glow and Loreal Colour Riche in Doutzen’s Nude Lipstick which has a lovely soft texture then just a few strokes of Chanel De Volume Mascara & I’m good to go!
Monday has arrived again and whilst the sun may be shining it still doesn’t change the fact that its Monday! We all go to bed on Sunday with the best intentions of starting a fresh when we all know that when monday comes your gonna hit that snooze button and squeeze every last bit out the weekend. Which is usually followed by a mad dash to leave the house to get to work on time. Sound familar?
Being a girl this means that despite the Monday morning rush I still like to go into work looking presentable and not looking like i’ve just rocked up out of bed.
Here are my favourite products to beat the Monday morning blues and still make it into work on time.
Estee Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Cream (Intensity 2)
I love the creamy consistency of this, the coverage is sheer to medium and really brightens up my skin hiding the weekends sins! I apply this with a real techniques buffing brush which gives a quick flawless application.
Mac Pro-longwear Concealer
My go to concealer for every day- It does what is says on the tin!
Studio Fix Powder
Perfect for adding extra coverage and setting the BB cream especially if you do have oily/combination skin.
Diego Dalla Palma Special Tanning Cake
I love this bronzer for both contouring and an all over glow. The matte finish makes it perfect for contouring and i’m surprised there is not more rave reviews on this product. You can pick up Diego Dalla Palma products from M&S beauty halls.
Mac Blush (Harmony)
A lot of people use this to contour but I find the its too light for contouring on my skin. This blusher is subtle but perfect for adding a hint of colour and a natural bronzed look.
Eyes & Brows
Chanel Le Volume Mascara
Combined with my Mac lash curler this mascara makes my lashes pop and my eyes look bigger and more awake.
Mac Brow Gel-Show off
I adore this gel! Its perfect for on the go and keeps my brows in tact all day without making them look stiff or clumpy unlike some of the other brow gels on the market. This product is massivley under rated in my opinion its one of my HG products.
Mac Creme De La Femme Lipstick
Lipstick can change your whole look! I love this berry coloured lipstick to brighten up my make up without being too over the top for work!
Mac Electro Lush Lipglass
This is the perfect match for my lipstick. A swipe of this and we’re good to go.
