It’s pretty humid out there at the moment so I am going to talk about a few makeup favourites of mine. It is important not to looked caked in makeup when you leave the house for a busy day ahead. These makeup essentials will make you look fresh faced and healthy!
My top favourite is the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. Go to Space Nk or a department store and get this matched to your skin tone. It will keep your face moist with a healthy glow all day and it will last you for ages! I have only just finished mine and I cannot remember when I bought it as it was such a while ago (remember not to use after it has gone off!)
Secondly is the No7 eyebrow pencil. If you are like me with eyebrows that need to be tamed and looked after this is a great. One end it has a brush and the other end it is a light moose/pencil that is smooth and easy to apply to the brow. No7 have got it right!
To make your eyes to bright and awake on a Monday morning, I would recommend you use a cream eye shadow on your eye lids and just under the brow line. I use a MAC eye shadow called Brule. It adds shape and shadow to the eye brows and as I said, makes you look more alive and ready for the day ahead!
MAC Opulash Optimum Black – A.M.A.Z.I.N.G…..This mascara elongates your lashes, coating them with a thick black paste that doesn’t clump! I always used MAYBELLINE mascara, but now I have found my new best friend. Well done MAC!
Select Cover-Up/Cahce-Cernes MAC. This may look small, but my oh my it is mighty! It has lasted me two months already and it is still pretty much full. This coverup is perfect for both under the eyes and on blemishes. It is not too thick, not too thin but the perfect consistency. I cannot fault it. Make sure you pop into a store to get it matched to your skin tone though, or else you might end up with odd coloured spots which may draw attention to them and we do not want that!!
Satin MAC Lipstick. Some people may say this looks like a winter colour to them and for you not to wear dark lipsticks in the summer, but I have pale skin and dark hair so unfortunately I cannot pull off the coral lips look. So my solution to this problem is stick to the dark lippy all year round. Just a touch of it with some lip gloss over the top creates the perfect summer shimmer on your lips. No need for oranges and pinks for the summer when you have a sexy satin colour! This is my favourite lipstick colour…please MAC never discontinue it!
