|Weekly Makeup Basket|
Time for a weekly makeup basket! I didn’t wear any makeup last week at all due to the awful weather, I thought I’d make more of an effort this week!
For face primer I’m finishing up the light primer from Smashbox and Clarin’s smoothing primer. I’m using Benefit’s that gal brightening primer, mixing it with L’Oreal’s True match foundation. It seems to be a nice combo. For concealer I’m using 17 stay time 18hr concealer and YSL Touché Eclat. To set my liquid foundation I’m going to use mac’s Marilyn Forever beauty powder. I’m also including my bareMinerals matte foundation to swap out with my L’Oreal liquid foundation.
As my base I have mac’s Painterly paint pot, I also have an eyelid primer in Chroma Violet from bareMinerals. For soft smokey eye looks I have both Urban Decay’s basics palette and Benefit’s big beautiful eyes palette. Of course I’m still trying to finish up my 17 barely there trio – the brown shade that refuses to finish. I’ve included a pressed mineral eyeshadow from elf in Wine Tour. I have 3 Rimmel Scandaleyes pencils, Taupe, Nude and Black. For my eyebrows I’m using my brow powder in Scarlett from Sigma. My mascara this week is Maybelline’s Rocket Volume mascara in black.
I’ve quite a few cheek products this week for some reason! From mac a sheertone blush in Dollymix, from NYX a vibrant pink Dessert Rose, from Rimmel a peachy rose blush in Misty Rose. Another pink is Dandelion from Benefit, and from Bourjois a golden pink shade in Rose D’or. I’ve included a cream blush from ByTerry in apple glow. I have two highlighters, the Rice Java powder from Bourjois and Rose Illumination from Elizabeth Arden.
Finally for Lip Products!
I have a cream sheen lipstick from mac in Fan Fare, which is a nice everyday lipstick. I have two lipsticks from Revlon, Soft Silver Rose which is a pearl finish and Pink in the afternoon which has a creamer finish. For a bolder lip I’ve included Stellar Apocalips from Rimmel and Revlon kissable balmstain in Lovesick. Next up is a more burgundy toned lipstick from Maxfactor in Mulberry. Finally for lips I’ve inlcuded a lipgloss from bareMinerals in Puff Pastry, I’ve still not tested this out.
