It's been crazy busy since I got back from Dubai last week, I'm so glad it's Friday I can't wait for the weekend! Today I actually LOVED my make up, my face not so much but the general look is one of my fall favourites.
This trip to Dubai I didn't intentionally tan, the only bit of sunbathing I did was sitting on my friends balcony! My face however is a touch warmer than usual. I had a rummage through my foundation collection looking for a suitable match - the winner? Illamasqua's Skin Base in SB14 - Wow wow wow, I'd forgotten how much I LOVE this foundation - such gorgeous coverage and the finish is so flawless! (I had to LOL to myself; as I type this Beyoncé's Flawless is playing in the background, I certainly didn't wake up like this haha!) On to concealer, the struggle continues. To neutralise the darkness under my eyes I used Laura Mercier's Colour Corrector in Orange/Yellow and to add a brightness I used Kevyn Aucoin's Sensual Skin Enhancer in 10! On my cheeks I used MAC's Prim and Proper a Limited Edition blusher from the Liberty London Collection (Years ago)- It was literally a blusher lucky dip, I'm trying to utilise the ridiculous amount of make up I own! I highlighted with the BFF Kevyn Aucoin's Celestial Powder. I opted for super smokey eyes today, I started with the browns from Smashbox's Full Exposure Palette - I think this is my favourite eyeshadow palette of the year, I just can't get enough of it, I wear all the colours - it's just so easy and of course so versatile! To add a little more depth I opted for the plum and the black from the MAC x The Rocky Horror Picture Show Palette (Out V.soon!) I used the same colours to smoke out my lower lash line. For eyeliner I used my MAC Fluidline Pencil in Black Brilliance with a MAC 214 Brush. Mascara of choice was was Lancôme's Hypnose Drama. For my lips I have been loving this combo, I posted it on Instagram and so many of you wanted to know what it was - MAC Half Red Lip Liner and Sephora Color Lip Last 4 - Its that dusky, dirty mauve and I adore it!
Feel like I haven't spoken to you lot in ages, I haven't filmed a video in forever either. It's just so hard to commit to YouTube - I'm just not cut out for it! What are you lot up to this weekend? Don't judge me but I'm going to 'The Big Reunion' concert tomorrow night haha - it's a load of bands me and my cousin grew up listening to Damage, 3T, Blue, Five haha - she booked the tickets so we're going to have a sing a long and reminisce, I'm secretly looking forward to it!
Have a fabulous weekend you lovely lot!
Lots of love as always
