I’m trying a new moisturiser this month from L’OCCITANE – Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Cream. This cream is part of a set of four, each one for different skin types. The girls in store are very helpful and will talk you through each one. It is formulated with skin-perfecting peony extract, this 24-hour moisturiser makes your skin luminous and rested, with an immediate radiance boost. I am really happy with it, especially at this time of year when my skin is feeling the effects of the cold weather!
My skin is feeling really dull so I am using MAC Strobe Cream as my primer. This is the ultimate quick fix for the skin. It de-snoozes, de-stresses, moistens, freshens and boosts the look of dull, flat or tired-looking skin with a fully loaded vitamin zap and a mega dose of green tea. Once this has settled into your skin you can start to apply your foundation…
I am using MAC Studio Fix foundation. This is probably my favourite foundation for both day and evening as it has great coverage and a luminous glow. My summer tan has faded so I am back to using colour NW20, using a foundation brush apply and blend all over your face.
Apply a generous amount of gold eyeshadow to your brush. I’m going to use just one large blending eyeshadow brush for this. Apply all over your eyelid, into the crease and above. To give the eye a rich golden look I am using Dazzlelight and All that Glitters from MAC. You can then apply a dark bronze colour, over the gold, over your eyelid, into the crease and under your eyelid. Blend until you are happy with the result.
I’m using MAC Prolong-wear concealer. Using a smaller foundation brush stroke lightly in all the areas you want to conceal and highlight. Under they eyes and above the eyebrows is where I usually like to highlight. As well as concealing this creates an all day glow and again hides any redness in your skin.
I am using Rimmel professional eyebrow pencil in colour Hazel to create definition in my eyebrows.
Bronzer and blusher will bring life to your skin! I apply my bronzer under my cheekbones and to the top line of my forehead. I am using my favourite bronzer by Bourjois. For my blusher I am using colour ‘So Sweet, So Easy’ from MAC..
To lift my eyes and create a more dramatic look I have a new secret weapon! Younique Mascara claims to increase your average lash volume by up to 400% with 3D Fiber Lashes. It is truly amazing, I love it! Younique Fiber Mascara is tricky to apply. The package comes with two tubes: a transplanting gel you apply first, and a tube of the fibers, which stick to the gel. The key is to apply the transplanting gel, then apply the fibers, then apply the transplanting gel after. Once your do it a couple of times you get the hang of it and you won’t look back!
To finish off autumn/winter look I am applying Plumful lipstick by MAC. This is a dark cherry colour, perfect for the winter months!
