BEAUTY OVERLOAD.

bbloggers

If you haven’t gathered
by today’s post title, today is all about beauty. I love Sunday pamper days and
here is what I have been using lately.
Brushes
Most sundays are about weekly brush cleans. Now it was time for a make up brush update. After owning a lot of the Real Techniques brushes I knew which ones I wanted to reinvest in, the powder brush and expert face brush. These are
most definitely worth the hype; the expert face is perfect for foundation
application and the power for applying my Nars Laguna bronzer at the end.
I found the blush
brush slightly too big for my cheeks but the new updated ecotools brushes however
are the perfect size and super soft.
Make up
A few months back I was
on the hunt for a fuller coverage foundation when Lily (whatihearttoday) suggested I tried Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation. Although the
colour I got seems a shade too dark for me at the moment, it was perfect for
those fake tan nights/sun kissed days. With no SPF meaning it’s perfect for nights out and eliminates that ‘ghost face’ in flash photos.

 
make up

For Christmas I was
lucky enough to get some lovely beauty treats shown above.
As a lip lover I got
this rather lavish balm by Suqqu, which has been added to my night routine. I’m always
complaining of chapped dry lips so a coating of this at night and when I wake up
they’re silky smooth. The perfect prep for my Mac lipstick in the colour Morange.

 

I have also been
trying out the new Eyeko range with Alexa Chung… the perfect combo for day
eyes. Although I find the mascara doesn’t give my lashes any more length, it
has an amazing dark pigment that gives that full on black colour I’ve been
longing for. Similar with the liner, it doesn’t fade or smudge.

3 Cult Favourites
I first tried 01 a year or so ago and after a little twist of fate, 02 landed in my
stocking this Christmas. Initially unsure. Come on, nothing beats number 1… but
as it settled into my skin it very much grew on me; with its sweet, musky characteristics that I love in a perfume.
It’s Sunday which means time for my Sunday
shampoo. Lately my hair is feeling so lifeless.. Mainly due to a much needed
haircut.
Since I’ve been loading it with lots of product to give it some va va voom as
they say, it was in need of a little detox; After washing with this shampoo my
hair feels super clean and fresh.
FINALLY, after what seems like months and
doing the rounds on every department store… you.are.mine.
A total convert to the cleansing balms, with
much love for Liz Earl it was time to get my mitts on this raved about Clinique
balm. I’ve been using it for a week or so now. It’s perfect for melting away
the days make up but I do find you need to go over your eye make up with
something stronger. Other than that, I will certainly be buying it again, its
perfect for my dry skin keeping it soft and non drying.
