Everyday makeup routine

If you're a regular reader then you will know how much I advocate for the barely there-natural-dewy look (the overused words here!). Recently I have been quiet pleased with my attempts to achieve this look, so thought I would share with you what I have been grabbing for...

The Estée Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow BB cream has been pretty high up on my list. Whilst I cannot truly say that I get an aaaaallllll day glow, it definitely helps to create a brighter complexion. Following with the Nars Creamy Concealor to hide my bags I'm pretty satisfied with an even, natural skin tone. 

A recent purchase of the Hourglass Brow Definer has left me one happy gal. Its much easier to use than my Benefit Brow Zings, and I love the spooley end to help get my brows in shape. I've then reached for the Bobbi Brown Long Lasting cream shadow to create a subtle, gold shimmer over my lids with the, well used, Rimmel Scandaleyes liner in bronze on my lash line. With an application of the Loreal Telescopic Mascara to create some natural seperation and definition I'm pretty satisfied with a simple eye look.

Of course I would be lost at the moment without my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion. A lovely, light pinky-peach colour with a golden tone for highlight. When rumaging around in my lipstick draw a month ago I found an old favourite, the Estee Lauder Pure Colour Long Lasting Lipstick  (mouthful!) in crystal nude. This is a 'your lips but better shade'; it has such a creamy texture and  a lovely shine upon an application. I love this shade for creating a small natural essence to a nearly naked look.

Thanks Liz

After its 100th award this week I felt it was appropriate to share my love for Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish. I think I will always be a loyal user of this product.

If you haven't heard how it works a cream based formula is applied to the face and then removed with a hot muslin cloth. Liz Earle is an advocate for natural ingredients and the cleanse and polish proves the wonders of a thorough cleanse! I can always rely on this product for clearing my skin, soothing my complexion and removing every ounce of makeup. Despite the craze of balms I never once wavered to the other side for my evening cleanse. Liz, I will always be truthful!

April Favourites

In the midst of revising and writing, not much affection has been been paid to my beauty obsessions. However, I did decide to pay some attention to my hair (looking at your split ends can be a big activity during procrastination). Searching through my beauty box I came across the Redken all soft argan-6 oil something I had purchased a while ago. After washing my hair I put a big drop of this on to my hand and rubbed it through. I have noticed a massive difference in condition and length!

Whilst this one has been in a few skin care posts I'm not sure if I've raved about it enough. The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum is, without a doubt, the best thing I own. A big statement to make, I know. However, I don't think I've ever used a product were I can see such a difference from its use so quickly. During my stresses of essay writing my skin usually takes a toll. Applying this every evening helps sooth my skin, making it brighter and more 'fuller.' Everything always looks alright with this. If you've never tried it before I cannot emphasise enough how much you need to!

I bought the Loréal Telescopic Mascara a while back after ViviannaDoesMakeup's constant raves. However, when got it home and looked at the brush I wondered what on earth she was talking about! After using it almost every day this month I have realised its wonders. I detest clunky, thick lashes. This separates and lengthens and despite not being a waterproof formula pretty much lasts all day.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush in dim infusion. I know this has featured in the last few posts but it really has been my go to product since its purchase. It is the perfect pick me up and I love how it doubles up as a highlight. It really is lovely on the skin and a great piece for the makeup bag.
