Make me up

July 22nd, 2011 § 0 comments

Do you mind if I get all girly and talk about make-up a little?

I hope you don’t, because I’ve taken photos already and really want to share them with you, if for no other reason than to virtually swap beauty secrets across the internet.  I’m no make-up expert – in fact I’m likely much the opposite – but I’ve got my own personal make-up style pretty much mastered.  I really do love make-up, and I wish I could pull off all of the beautiful colors and styles available.

Unfortunately I can’t.  So I stick to the basics – my basics – and here they are.

1. Bronze powder by Clinique: I always finish getting ready with a brush of this across my cheeks, chin, and collarbone.  It offers a warm glow that my pale skin doesn’t naturally get from the sun.

2. Lancome Hypnose Mascara:  This mascara is a current favorite of mine, but I’m not always faithful to this style.  I tend to buy whichever mascara is on offer at the store, and hopefully this way I’ll eventually find “the one”.

3. Mac Eyeshadow and brush: I’ve never really strayed from neutral shades of brown when it comes to eyeshadow, but this color absolutely takes the cake.  I’m completely in love.  I swipe it on lightly during the day if I’m feeling fancy, and I wet the brush to darken the look at night.  Love.

4. Mac Ruby Woo: Hands down the best red lipstick I have ever tried.  It’s thick and matte, stays through drinking, kissing and more, and is the perfect shade of red.  Worth every penny.

5. Liquid liner: Sometimes if I’m feeling especially adventurous, I’ll swipe on liquid liner for a vintage winged look under my mascara . This one by H&M works incredibly well, and stays for ages.

And that’s all! I honestly almost never wear anything else.

What about you luvs?  Any tips?  And what do you wear? xxx
