I'm lying, it's not weekend, it's from a week or two ago, I just forgot about it. I also took about 20 selfies, and this was the only half decent, non-blurry one don't ask me about this awkward half-ass smile... I don't know what I was thinking
I can't remember all the makeup so excuse all the gaps
Soap and glory primer, MAC Pro long wear concealer, Soap and Glory kick ass powder, MAC Gingerly, Becca Champagne Pop
Freedom eyebrow pomade, Benefit brow gel, Tartelette in Bloom palette, maybelline master precise liner, Maybelline Plush mascara
NYX soft matte lip cream in Cannes
These are the products I generally choose to take with me when I'm away from home, they contain lots of staples and sometimes I change up my concealer or eyeshadow palette
But on the whole, these are the usual suspects ! I will list all products and mini reviews later, as I'm going for my fave millennial meal of the day ... Brunch ! (is it even brunch if you don't get avocado and eggs!)
Palette of the day - Urban Decay Shadow Box
I love the quality of US shadows, they're fairly unrivalled in my opinion, apart from my Tartlette palette. I love the range of shades, but I wish there was more mattes !
Favourite base products
Nip and Fab foundation - in a thin dropper formula, gives a beautiful sheer finish if needed and can be blended out easily
Soap and Glory Primer - I'm really enjoying this, but I have to say, I prefer the silicone pore filling abilities of my Smashbox primer instead
Mac tinted moisturiser - still trying to finish this !
Loreal Highlight in Golden Glow - I mix this in with my foundation or tinted moisturiser for that golden shimmery look, so glowy and bronzey, really love this stuff !
Favourite eye brushes
I use this brushes everyday, and I have done for so long
They are by @elfcosmetics and I bought them online when they used to be so cheap ! I know the price has gone up quite a lot since I purchased this, which is a shame.
However, so far these have lasted well and I wash them very regularly with no shedding.
I would like to buy some new eye brushes so if you have any you recommend then let me know down below #elfcosmetics
KIKO Contour Sticks
I feel a little silly doing a review of these as I bought these when they were part of a collection, so I'm quite sure you can't get hold of them anymore, so my apologies !
They are creamy chubby sticks which I use to contour with mainly, the brown is a warm toned deep brown that blends really nicely.
The highlight shade for me is slight too pale and I prefer a more golden bronze highlight.
See the second pic for swatches !
I don't usually cream contour as I find it doesnt look natural enough on me, but these do a great job
Face of the Day
I can hear the rain, and I'm off out for the day with my girls so umbrellas at the ready ! And fix spray
Milani baked blush in Rose D Or
YSL Lipstick in 9
Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Eternal Gold
NARS Creamy Concealer - I know I only ever photograph this is because my maybelline and mac concealers aren't as pretty to snap!
Loreal highlight in Golden Glow
KIKO Conceal and highlight crayons - review and swatches up next!
It's cold, I've defrosted the car, my hands are frozen and I got stuck on the M6, it's definitely winter !
Tom Ford Nude Dip Quad
NARS Creamy Concealer
Mac tinted moisturiser
Loreal True Match highlight in Golden Glow - I use this mixed in with my base, love the golden glow it gives you, you can add as much or as little as you want so its perfect !
KIKO Full coverage concealer in 06
Happy Friday !
This lighting is so rubbish
I can't remember half the details for this picture as I was half asleep taking it, but let me know if you want specifics
As a side note, how amazing are Zara fragrances! So impressed with this one as it smells so good
Daily brow tools
Soap and Glory Archery - it's a double ended pencil, with a felt tip and a crayon, I use the crayon end every morning just to fill in any brow gaps, I don't love it but it works for now, but I won't repurchase as I find it much to under pigmented personally
Benefit Ready Set Brow - amazing stuff, I use it every single day as it's so good. Definitely will be repurchasing as I truly think it's the best Brow gel I've used !
Some makeup of the day
This lighting is appalling, I've had to edit this picture so much it's shocking, just to make it look normal
Primark Primer Water - absolutely love this stuff, keeps my makeup looking fresh all day
MAC Blush in Fever - great for colder months for a flush of colour, but it's so pigmented so it's a pain to blend out
Urban Decay Vice palette - I love the metallic shades in this but it lacks a crease colour so it's hard to use on its own, but I love UD shadows, they're some of my favourite
NARS Creamy Concealer in Gingerly
MAC Tinted Moisturiser
KIKO Water Eyeshadow in 208
Most reached for products

KIKO water eyeshadow in 208 as a highlight
Soap and Glory Kick Ass Powder

Elf mist and set
MAC Blush in Gingerly
NARS Creamy Concealer
KIKO Full coverage Concealer in 06
This lack of light in winter is rubbish happy weekend !
Tom Ford Quad in Nude Dip
I'm trying to use this more, I like the shade range but I wish there was a matte crease colour instead, I like the feel of the shadows but not massively struck in general.
Is it worth the splurge ? For the luxe feel, yes. But for eyeshadow quality, I prefer Urban Decay
I'm becoming a creature of habit and using the same products daily, even down to the lip colour terrible really for someone whose makeup collection is so regrettable large...
Anyway, my current daily favourites are ..
Nars creamy concealer, set with Soap and Glory Kick Ass Powder
Soap and glory archery brow pencil (not a fan, trying to use up) set with Benefit Brow Gel (major love for this)
Maybelline Plush mascara (its okay, trying to finish)
MAC Gingerly blush (holy grail) and highlighted with KIKO water shadow 208
Rimmel Scandaleyes Pencil in Nude (been through so many)
Sleek Pout Polish in Perfect Plum
