So I’ve seen a few of these around on other blogs and I love to look at them, also by making these the husband may get a hint! Although I wont count on it.
We are off to Bluestone Wales in March, and its very outdoors/activity based which I am so excited about, but I must admit that I do not have the wardrobe to suit and have been looking at a few lovelies to add to my holiday list!
Being a mummy to two young boys, its so difficult to even put make up on some mornings, but I am a person who cannot physically leave the house without putting anything on! I often find myself watching mummy vloggers, and reading blogs who do similar posts, and I love to see what people are using and grab different ideas, after all, its the one thing us mummys have for us!
First of all, I am terrible for a ‘skincare routine’. I don’t have one, and never have. I am extremely lucky with my skin, I never get spots, and I know I will pay for my lack of it in the future, so please, if you have any tips or recommendations on skincare, please let me know!
Here is what I use!
Diorskin Star Foundation in 022 – This is a fantastic foundation, but pricey! It has great coverage, and gives a dewy look, which I love! I’m really not keen on a matt look.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer in Light – I’m a huge fan of concealers as I am quite dark under my eyes and cannot stand it! A lot of people also find me a strange because i actually put this on my lips before adding any colour as I feel it brings out the colour better, but is quite drying too!
Dior Eyeshadow Palette – Eye Reviver– For my eyes I use the real techniques brush which I find really easy to apply with. I like to wear really neutral eyeshadows as i feel too much colour makes my eyes look really tiny! This palette is so lovely, and the gel liner is really defining, normally I use a pencil liner but since having this I’ve definitely preferred this look!
Estee Lauder Eyeshadow – 08 Unriveled – This is a lovely neutral gold, it has a lovely shimmer to it and is perfect for using all over my eye. It would be lovely to blend to make a smokey eye look, but I just use it on its own.
Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder – 01 Light – I’ve never been a fan of using a powder to set my foundation as I feel it really dries out my skin, and makes me look really pale! I always use a bronzer over my foundation on my cheek bones, nose, forehead and chin. I love the glow this bronzer gives, it gives a light bronze rather than a real orange look which I really don’t like!
Lancôme Blusher – Blush Subtil 021 – After applying my bronzer, I always define my cheek bones using a blush, I normally use Mac in Dainty, but have recently switched to this lovely one! Its a lovely pink with a slight shimmer, and adds just enough colour to define!
Lancôme Hypnose Mascara – Black – I have used this mascara for a long time, I’ve tried many others but have always come back to this one as it just cant be beaten! Its lovely to apply, and gives a real false look affect. It never clumps and separates my lashes perfectly! It’s definitely my top product to use! I cannot go anywhere without wearing it!
Mac Lipstick – Snob – This is such a popular lipstick. It’s a lovely pink, and stays on for hours! It’s lovely to reapply, and never dries my lips out. It’s a perfect colour for an everyday lipstick! I really don’t think you can beat Mac Lipsticks, they feel so lovely to wear.
