What's on my face #4




So Christmas is officially over and life is slowly but surely going back to normal. None of the items in this look are Christmas presents but some of them are new!
I was meant to fly back home on the 23rd but my flight got cancelled so I was stuck in Heathrow for a night and had to be there at 5am the next day, where I found myself at Duty Free... Since I just got a MAC eyeshadow palette I obviously had to buy myself an eyeshadow to go with my poor lonely cranberry and I chose to get Corduroy which is a beautiful matte warm toned brown. Being a beauty blogger, I obviously couldn't just buy one thing so I also got the 219 brush, which I have wanted for ages! But I digress... here's how I achieved this look:
I rediscovered the Revlon BB cream that I had left at home so I used it for a light coverage base (it's quite thick and actually really good coverage for a BB cream!) and used my Kick-Ass concealer to conceal my undereye circles. I used my usual bronzer from the Sleek Face Form kit with my Nars Ita 21 brush and I also used the blush from the same palette, a pink shade with gold shimmer in it.
I then used this gorgeous shimmery bronze shade from BeYu- my sister wanted to throw it away when she was sorting through her makeup but of course I rescued it. It's really pigmented and super creamy, which is surprising for such a budget eyeshadow! I applied it all over the lid and blended out the edges with my MAC 217. I then used the 219 to apply Corduroy on the outer corner of my upper lashline and all along my lower lashline and finished off the look with some mascara on my top and bottom lashes- I used my favourite Laura Mercier mascara and the Clinique Bottom Lash mascara.
On my lips I used the essence stay matte lip cream in soft nude, which is the perfect nude for me! I forgot to photograph it (bad blogger!) but it's a really lovely product, although the staying power isn't quite as good as I'd like it to be...
So that's how I achieved this look, I hope you like it!
