I’ve been keeping it really light with the makeup recently, instead focusing on an intense, hydrating skincare routine to combat my dry skin. I’m actually really enjoying the feel of light makeup on my skin, with only a handful of products on my face so it doesn’t feel weighed down. Here’s are some of the products that I’ve been using lately:
For my base, I’ve actually been skipping foundation altogether and going straight for concealer. I use a little more than usual, but it feels like good coverage without feeling too heavy on my face. My favourite is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard which gives just the right amount of coverage without caking or creasing on the skin.
It’s no surprise that some Charlotte Tilbury is making it’s way into my makeup routine, I think it’s been a long time since I haven’t had at least one of her products on my face! The Filmstar Bronze and Glow is such a beautiful light sculpting option, just to add a bit more dimension to my face without a full blown out contour.
My love for the Colourpop Supershock Eyeshadow in Amaze has been rekindled after finding it in my makeup drawers last month. It’s a beautifully pigmented, champagne shimmer which lasts a really long time and can easily be worn on its own blended in with a nice buffing brush (I highly recommend the Zoeva eye brushes, they’re all I’ve been using lately!).
I’m also revisiting certain products that I haven’t reached for in a while, mainly the Rimmel London Kate Lipstick in Boho Nude. It’s such a beautiful peachy nude that definitely hasn’t been used enough until recently. I actually posted a full review of these lipsticks and their formula last summer, so I’ll link that here.
