I’m afraid it’s yet another minimal product FOTD! What I am like? I blame this on my eyelash extensions – I absolutely love them, they make me look ‘done’ without a spot of makeup on so I really don’t feel the need to slap too much on. In fact I’ve only been applying foundation where I need some extra coverage on the centre of my face, which is unheard of for me. Of course I’m absolutely terrified of them falling out, I’ve heard some real horror stories, but like I said I’ll do a full review once they all do, but for the moment they’ve been in for three and a half weeks and they’re still going strong!

On the rest of my face I’ve been lightly applying Jemma Kidd Light As Air Foundation in the shade 3 and a bit of the By Terry Touche Veloutee Concealer in Beige under my eyes and around the corners of my nose. For my eyebrows and eyelashes I have just been combing them through with a brow comb, not putting mascara on is seriously saving me some time in the mornings. My favourite bit of this makeup has to be the cheeks; ever since I got the Laura Mercier Lush Nectarine Second Skin Cheek Colour my love for blushers has been reignited and I’ve been rediscovering some absolute crackers in my collection. My newest favourite is the Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera, it’s a pretty peachy pink that’s nice and warm toned so it sits well with my skintone. It’s a cream formula and leaves a gorgeous glossy sheen on the cheeks – no need for a highlighter at all. On the lips I’ve just been throwing on the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in the shade 2 and out the door I trot.

I think this might be an all time record for a FOTD – 4 products! But like I said in my case eyelash extensions have made me reach for rather minimal makeup and I have to say I’m quite liking the flushed blush look. So what have you ladies been using this week? Any cream blush recommendations?

    I think you would love Illamasqua cream blushes. They have great pigmentation and a lovely glowing finish to them. x

  • Lucy

    the blush is gorgeous! i really like the Maybelline dream touch mousse blushes- especially the plum colour- with a bit of blending work it looks gorgeous on basically any skin colour (and i’ve tried it on the jamaican side of the family!:P)

    My favourite cream blush is the Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in the colour Score. A lovely warm pink with a slight golden shimmer. I’ve recently been really getting into blushers myself. The other day I randomly picked up the Sleek blush in Rose Gold when I was pottering in Superdrug. It was just such a gorgeous colour! Apparently it’s supposed to be quite a good dupe for Nars Orgasm but I don’t have that so I don’t know, but having had a look at some swatches online they look pretty damn close :) Either way, I’m loving it and it’s great to have that bit of shimmer so u don’t have to appy an extra highlighter :)

  • Gemma Meredith

    I’m finding myself recently n ot feeling like I need to wear as much makeup everyday, it;s nice really though as it means there is a bigger difference when you go out :)

  • Lisa Stenberg

    Really beautiful! I love that lipgloss. (I have it myself :) ) As I said last time i commented, I can really recommend the Clarins Instant Light blush. It’s a liquid blush (works like a cream blush). 
    I myself just ordered the lemma kidd pawpaw cause I saw it in one of your videos. Looked lovely! I have that blush in pomegranate. Beautiful color btw!

  • Cubelixa

    I have the MaxFactor Miracle Touch Blush No 3 (Soft Copper) but I have a really hard time putting this on my face. Maybe you can make a video showing us how you do that because you’re blush looks really adorable and natural on you.

  • Meritxell

    Shiseido accentuating color stick. I have it in Peach flush and it’s the best cream blush i’ve ever used.
