You might have noticed that this week I’ve tried a few new features on the blog. ‘The Weekend Post’ will be up every Sunday with my lazy-day beauty goings-on and Wednesday will now be the day that I inject a hit of style into this blog. Quite a few of you asked to see more content on events that I am lucky enough to be invited to, so I’ve vowed to lug my camera along in the evenings and bring you the latest pics and goss. One final thing is a weekly dose of ‘My Makeup’. I’m a creature of habit when it comes to what I put on my face, so ‘FOTDS’ are all a bit too regular for me, so I’ll be trying to shake my makeup routine up weekly and sharing the outcome every Friday. Phew, housekeeping out of the way – now on to the good stuff!
Laura Mericer Oil-Free Tinted Moisturiser in Bisque
By Terry Touche Veloutee Highlighting Concealer Pen in 3
NARS Madly Blusher
L’oreal Telescopic Waterproof Mascara
MAC Hue Lipstick
Uber simple stuff right? I’ve got 3 foundations/tinted moisturisers on rotation at the moment and the Laura Mercier is what I reach for on lazy days where my skin is looking alright. A haul video is on it’s way but the other day I picked up the By Terry Touche Veloutee highlighting concealer pen and I have to say I have been so impressed with it so far. My Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer gives a much fuller coverage but is also much heavier under the eyes. The By Terry is a liquid form, much like YSL Touche Eclat, but still has good coverage whilst being a lighter consistency. The main point of this post is to do a bit of raving about NARS Madly blush. This is a product that has been sitting in my ‘possible blog sale foder’ pile for a while, but in a rush the other day I grabbed it and I’m very happy I did. I have been reaching for the Laura Mercier Second Skin Blush in Lush Nectarine recently (post on that here), but if I fancy more of a bronzy peach blush then Madly is perfect. I know when it comes to NARS people always bang on about Orgasm, which is a bush that I really dislike for it’s reddy tone, or Deep Throat, which is a colour that I own but don’t reach for too often; but Madly is definitely one to check out. It does contain a fair amont of shimmer, which is easily removed by a quick tap of the brush, but it’s one of those shades that adds blush, a bit of contour and highlight, all in one. For my lashes and lips I stuck to my old favourites – L’oreal Telescopic Waterproof Mascara and MAC’s Hue.
