It's been a couple of weeks since I've bothered to put up a makeup post so I thought I better get back to it. Recently I've been loving wearing neutral makeup with all black outfits. I think it's a phase. So here's one example of how I like to wear my nude makeup.
I've started the skin with Bourjois Happy Light Foundation in Porcelain. It gives a nice glowy finish to the skin which I really like when wearing a more neutral look. I've used Clinique Airbrush Concealer under my eyes and round my nose. My skin is quite good just now so I haven't had to slap on the heavy duty concealer all over my blemishes. I used the Bourjois Cream Blush in Nude Velvet on the apples of my cheeks and finished the skin with a dusting of Clinique Stay Matte powder through the t-zone.
On my eyes I've used MAC Soba Eyeshadow which is a gorgeous warm mid-toned brown. It's one of those ones that look great on their own without a lot of effort. I've added a bit of definition with MAC Coffee Eye Pencil and used YSL Faux Cils on my lashes. Not my favourite mascara but it is pretty good. I forgot to put it in the photo, but I used Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette through the brows. I absolutely love it. It's the easiest way to get fuller looking brows that don't look painted on - because really my brows are invisible with nothing on them. I went to the doctor at the beginning of the week for a chest infection but couldn't leave the house without my brows on!
On the lips I've cracked out an old favourite, Chanel Rouge Coco in Superstition. As far as I know they don't sell this shade anymore but do have something similar. I'll be quite sad when this is done, I feel like it's a nude that really suits my skin tone. One of my favourite things about this makeup? It took about 5 minutes. Great for when you don't want to spend 20 minutes on your makeup (which I do like to do sometimes!).
