“Elegance is when the inside is as beautiful as the outside” – Coco Chanel
I have not done a makeup haul in SO long! I have recently made a few beauty-related purchases and also been fortunate to receive some lovely gifts, so I thought I would share with you all my latest makeup favourites!
Bobbi Brown: Shimmer Brick Compact in Bronze
I was gifted this lovely palette from a friend of mine, and all I can say is that I love it! I have been using it for my highlighting, as well as using some of the shades as eyeshadows (even though you are probably not supposed to). I love how these shades can work into your makeup look to create both natural and dressier looks. I love using the brown shade (at the bottom of the palette) for my eyeshadow, as I feel it makes my blue eyes stand out! Overall, I think this is a really practical and versatile palette that I would highly recommend. It would also be ideal for travelling, as it is quite compact and multi-purposeful and did I mention that it comes with a brush?
Mecca: Illuminating Primer and Makeup Perfection Mist
I received these gifts for my birthday as part of the Mecca Beauty Loop program, which was quite a nice surprise! Both are great for any makeup routine, with the illuminating primer adding an extra glow underneath your makeup, and the setting mist great for maintaining your makeup look for the day, as well as adding a dewy and youthful glow!
IT ‘Your Skin But Better: Colour Correcting Full Coverage Cream + Anti-Aging Hydrating Serum’
I purchased this product over the weekend in the shade ‘Fair’ from Sephora. It was suggested to me by the sales assistant, as I had asked her which pale foundation she would recommend. So far I am loving the texture and consistency of this foundation, and find that it works well for a natural everyday look. It is more of a matte look, which I prefer as I once used the Too Faced Born this Way pale foundation ‘Snow’ and found it to be way too shiny.
What are your go-to makeup products at the moment? Do you have any recommendations? Leave a comment below, as I would love to hear from you!
