Lipstick : MUA shade 2 / Mascara : YSL Shocking / Foundation : Clinique 'even better' / Eye Line : YSL shocking
Yep, you read the title right. I have finally done another MAKEUP post! Don't worry, I'm probably just as shocked as you all are right now. I suddenly noticed that a lot of my questions on my blog, and my Instagram are about my makeup (mainly my lip colour) so decided that it's about time i put some makeup rambles on here too. Let me just start by saying I am in no way a Makeup artist, I wear what I feel is best for me, and apply it how i feel is right. My makeup is never perfect, and i often have days where my eyebrows are wonky, my lipstick smudged and my bronzer perhaps a little too much. However, I try my best, invest in high end products (and the occasional drug store product which you will find out about in a minute) and like most girls, am bloomin' addicted to the stuff. Unfortunately for my bank account YSL, Clinique and Estee Lauder happen to be some of my favourite brands, and Chanel (especially their lipglosses - YOU MUST TRY THEM) is worryingly becoming more popular in my makeup bag. However, don't fret, I'm also a sucker for a bargainous Drug store product too. Obviously Rimmels 'Stay matte' powder is in the top 10, and recently i've discovered the wonders of MUA. Their new 'undress me too' eye shadow pallette is ah-may-zing (saved me splashing out on the Naked pallette) and i've also become a fan of their £1 lipsticks! YES, ONE BRITISH POUND. I know. Calm down girls ...
I'm used to spending an average of £20- £30 on a lip stick *Cue YSL rouge volupte addiction* so as you can imagine, the much loved Barclays card has been a little happier recently. The colour is surprisngly pigmented, the application really easy, they haven't dried my lips out (so far) and the variety of colours is wonderful. I typically go for brighter lip colours rather than nudes, as i just feel a bright lip brings out my eyes. Maybe? So as this colour is quite a vampy pinky/purple shade I added a bit more eye makeup with a winged liner, and extra layerings of mascara (for anyone wondering, I don't wear false eye lashes), It's a look i'd wear to go out for dinner, or even in the day If i was wearing quite a basic outfit. I definitely recommend checking out MUA's lipsticks range (available at Superdrug) if you are after some affordable lip products for summer!
What do you think of the look? Would you like to see a few more makeup posts? xxx
