Doll Face - Make Up and Me x


Wednesday, 26 June 2013

I am not a beauty expert but I like to think I have progressed from my Tinker Bell make up stage...

As a working mum I have very little time to apply my war paint every morning let alone false eye lashes and a perfect smokey eye. My key focus with the products I buy is that they are hard working, smell divine and come in cute packaging - what can I say it's the Tinker Bell coming out in me ;)

So at the moment I am using and loving the following :

Face:
Maybelline BB Cream or/and
Estée Lauder Double Wear light (lightest shade) I alternate between these two depending on the level of coverage I need ( Which translates to how much sleep I have had!)

Loreal Magique CC Cream in nude/anti- fatigue is also great if you need to look refreshed and gives a great glow. However, I have started to find this product quite drying so you will need to bring out your...

Clarins Beauty Balm - literally dewy finish in a tube, I cannot rate this product enough and it smells divine. I pat this on my forehead and cheekbone area to give a youthful, fresh glow.

Look Pro Concealer is just my favourite item at the moment. The coverage, consistency and tones are just perfect and so much product for the money.

Nars Luxor Multiple is a really awesome highlighter for porcelain skin and looks great on the cheek bones as well as blended under the brow.

Eyes:
I love the MUA Undressed 2 palette and the MUA Glitter Ball palette but typically use the former. I have also recently managed to buy this Christmas 2012 palette by Bobbi Brown which I am loving at the moment as it is just so versatile.

Benefit "They are Real" mascara is fab, it adds thickness, length and curl. I also love their Bad Gal lashes if you really want to make an impact!

MUA Eyebrow Pencil in brunette - you may wonder why this colour when I bleach my hair but I like the definition and I have typically very dark brows so the lighter pencil looks a tad odd!

Lips:
So hard to choose and this varies everyday but in the pictures below I am wearing :

Nars Roman Holiday Lipstick
