MAKEUP MENU OF THE WEEK #2

This week’s makeup menu features some of my most trusted and loved makeup items. I haven’t been feeling great this past days so it was time for me to go back to the sources. This is my foolproof makeup. I feel like a naturally nicer version of myself when I wear it and I know it will wear off subtly as I nap and blow my nose. Nice!

 

WEEK 2: I AM NOT FEELING MY BEST SO I’M USING MY TRUSTED MAKEUP FRIENDS LOOK

MAKEUP MENU OF THE WEEK

MAC Custom Eye Shadow Palette (clockwise from up-left): Patina, Saddle, Mulch, Soba

 

For this week’s makeup: I’m wearing my favourite ‘better version of myself base’ CHANEL Perfection Lumiere Velvet (20 Beige) and CHANEL Natural Finish Pressed Powder (50 Peche). Skin looks velvety, soft and natural. I have already repurchased both this products and I intend to keep buying them forever. The BY TERRY Touch-Expert Ultra Radiance Active Concealer (4) has illuminating yellow pigments and skincare properties as well. It blends like a dream and it is actually moisturizing. Nobody could tell is there but it’s certainly doing it’s job nicely. To give some colour to my cheeks and to look a bit more healthy really, I’m using one of my favourite discoveries of the year FIONA STILES Soft Cheek Veil in the shade Valley. To bring a bit of light and for the fun too, I applied L’OREAL True Match LUMI Powder Glow Illuminator (N202 Rose). Now for the eyes, I love my Custom MAC Palette for an understated but beautiful soft bronze smokiness. My no-fuzz favourite combination is Patina, Soba and a bit of Mulch on the lash line. Love! On my lashes I’m using MARC JACOBS Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. This one is already finished and I already have an amazing replacement that I will show you very soon on this pages. For my brows, I am loving my new ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Brow Definer in the shade Taupe. Last but not least, for my lips, I’m using my favourite lip balm DHC Lip Cream and for a bit of colour I love the natural combination of NYX Lip Liner in Nude Beige and MAC Jubilee (lustre finish). Voila!

Brushes used: foundation brush is DIOR Fluid Foundation Brush (11), for powders I use JAPONESQUE Highlight and Contour Brush, and for eye shadows I use MAC 239 and DIOR Eyeshadow Brush Medium (21).

 

Makeup Menu Week 2

 

As you can see, my selfie taking skills haven’t gotten any better. I blame the fish tank lighting that we have at the moment for this! Also, the lipstick is not as peach as it appears to be. It’s more like a neutral brown colour with a bit of peach running through it.
