Makeup Shakeup


I thought I would introduce a new segment into my blog where I show you a few products that have wrangled their way into my everyday routine. I always love to do tutorial type posts but find they can sometimes be too long and rambley, so this way I can talk you through a few everyday products and how I use them without putting you all to sleep.

For my base I've been loving the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation which is a new discovery for me. I've done a whole review of this here if you want a more in depth read, but in a nut shell it's a beautiful lightweight foundation which is easy to build. This is perfect for everyday as it doesn't look heavy on the skin and leaves it flawless yet natural.

After a recent trip into Debenhams I discovered a few new brands which I haven't seen in there before, Too Faced, The Balm among some other good ones! I couldn't stop myself picking up a couple of bits from The Balm as their products always look so great. I went for the Frat Boy blush and the Mary-Lou Manizer highlight. The former is a highly pigmented pinky coral shade which looks lovely on the cheeks for a natural flush of colour. You only need the tiniest amount of this and I love it layered with the highlighter on top. The highlighter is a lovely champagne shade which is very finely milled so it doesn't make you look like a disco ball with chunks of glitter over your face. Again, you only need a small amount so I can see this lasting a long time. The packaging of both of these are also super cute and another reason why I had to pick them up!

For my lips I've been keeping it very natural and only reaching for tinted lip balms. I find as the weather changes and becomes more cold my lips suffer and always get dry, so the Clarins Lip Balm Perfector in 01 Rose has been the perfect option. It gives your lips the tiniest hint of pink and it adds shine and moisture which is exactly what I've been after. All the shades in this range are great for everyday!
