What's on my face #1


I quite like the idea of 'What's On My Face' posts so I thought I should start sharing my favourite makeup products weekly. I reviewed some of the products featured in this post already, but you can expect full reviews of the other bits next week :)

To add some colour to my face and reduce the appearance of pores, I used the Clarins Instant Smooth Self Tanning Primer*. My favourite foundation at the moment is Laura Mercier Silk Creme and I love the flawless, silky effect it gives. It is slightly too dark, but it matches my skin tone, if I use the Clarins Self Tanning Primer first. Yay!



To conceal dark circles, I have been using the Bourjois Happy Light Concealer* with a touch of YSL Touche Eclat. The Happy Light Concealer is also fab for hiding blemishes and I adore it! To set everything and add radiance to my complexion, I have been reaching for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light. It is an amazing product and it adds the most beautiful, subtle glow to my face, without looking shimmery. It is hard to explain and the HD quality photo above doesn't do my skin any favours, but... in real life and real light, it looks incredible! Even my husband commented on the 'healthy glow' so it must look nice!

My favourite bronzer/blusher at the moment is the Guarlain Terracotta Terra Nerolia Tan Enhancing Bronzer*. It is absolutely gorgeous and goes really well with my skin tone. I will be reviewing it next week, so keep your eyes peeled :) To highlight my cheekbones, I used Lily Lolo Shimmer Stripes in Honey Glow*. 

I created the eyemakeup using a NARS primer,  Lily Lolo Smoky Rose Quad* and Bourjois Twist Up The Volume Mascara. You can see a closeup of the lashes below. I quite like the effect it gives. I also curled them with Shu Uemura Curlers. On my lips I am wearing Guerlain KissKiss Strass Lipstick in shade Beige Mousseline - my new 'go to' lip colour.  Please ignore my messy eyebrows :) I used a dark brown eyeshadow to fill them in :)

    1. It's amazing. Make sure to get matched at the counter though. I got the wrong shade online.
