It's Friday (*insert excitement!*) and for the first time in a long time this post is ON time! It's been a long week this week, I didn't realise how much of a struggle it would be getting my health back on track. Nevertheless my make up routine has changed slightly - I find myself reaching for softer, neutral toned eyeshadows with minimal liner - With this I usually opt for a nude lip but decided to spice it up a little today! 


I decided to mix the NARS Light Optimizing Primer with Sheer Glow Foundation (Cadiz) for my base it gives the skin such a gorgeous, dewy glow. My dark circles are bad and that may be because my insomnia has returned - This means maximum coverage on the concealer front so I whipped out an old favourite - Tarte's Maracuja Creaseless Concealer, the consistency is rich and it can be quite heavy but if it's warmed up and applied correctly it works wonders. To set my concealer I used Ben Nye's Banana Powder, I adore this product - it's light on the skin and counteracts darkness especially under the eyes. I have been reaching for my Smashbox Full Exposure Palette almost every day this week, I am especially loving the matte neutral. I then curled my lashes and applied Lancome's Hypnose Drama Mascara, a cult classic - I must say I don't LOVE it just yet, I think it's too new if you catch my drift? I have been OBSESSED with MAC x Sharon Osbourne's Blusher, it's such a beautiful peachy pink and looks awesome on the skin. I highlighted with Benefit's Watts Up highlighter, this is definitely one of my favourite cream highlighters, it sits on the skin so nicely. I thought I should add a little colour on my lips so I used MAC's Cherry my Holy Grail red lip liner with Sephora's Color Lip Last (Wanted Red 20) - This lipstick is initially creamy to apply but has a gorgeous velvet matte finish. 

I've been wearing different variations of this all week, mostly with a nude lip but hey it is Friday so the red lip can come out to play! 

What have you lot been loving this week? Hope you all have a fab weekend.. 

Lots of Love


  1. Hola Zara, hope you're having a wonderful day so far. loving the makeup but two things jumped out at me...the lashes & lip color gurrrl. I know you don't love the mascara yet but I really like how your lashes look. I had to order that same lipstick from sephora yesterday but also ordered the 12 Royal Raspberry. The name and color looked a amazing online; can't wait for both to arrive. =)

  2. You look lovely :) x

  3. I would love to buy the nars sheer glow foundation after hearing such good things about it, but the people at the counters can never match me to my shade grrrrr! you look amazing as always!
