Easy spring/summer make up

PSX_20170512_105829

With the sun being more and more out, and the weather getting warmer it truly feels like it is finally spring and summer is not that far away. Which means you can pop a bit more colour in your make up routine and I wanted to show you a pretty easy and simple make up routine that is light and easy.

After cleaning my face, I use the Body Shop Vitamin E moisturizer, which has been a favourite of mine for the last couple of weeks. Then I apply primer first. I use Benefit Porefessionals primer, as it does a great job at hiding my giant pores on my cheeks. For foundation I have been using a more watery foundation, and that is the Maybelline fit me foundation in the shade 102. It is very easy to apply blends in very easy, and because it is more watery consistency then creamy, you can barely feel it on your face. Which is perfect for when it gets warmer outside.

For under my eyes, to cover up my dark circles, I have been using the Wonder Pencil by NYX. It  does a great job at hiding those dark circle and makes me look more awake and healthy. On top of this I use everyone’s fave concealer, the Collection Lasting Perfection one, in the shade fair. To finish off the base off my face make up , I’m setting everything with the Rimmel stay matte powder.

For my brows, I use the Natural collection eye shadow in crushed walnut. To start off my eye make up, I apply primer first. I use the NYX proof it! eye shadow primer. For my eye lids I’m using the Make Up Revolution palette, and taking the light brown shade for my crease and the lightest shade to cover all my lid. Since I want to go easy on the eye I’m only putting black eye pencil on my upper waterline. To finish off the eyes I use the new L’Oreal baby roll mascara which has become my new fave mascara. Gives such curls!

Now I go back to finish my base make up and for contour I use Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer, and for blush and highlight I use the Tanya Burr Cosmetics cheek palette in rosy flush.

For my lips I’m also using a new discovery, and that is the Maxfactor matte lipstick in the shade rose. Such a pretty pink shade for this time of the year.

So this is my easy spring/summer make up look. Hope you liked it and recreate it too!

BarryM Matte Me Up lip kit review

I was soooo excited when Barry M introduced the new lip kits. As soon as my budget let me I got all three and I’m here to tell you what I think about them.

I don’t own any other lip kits ( especially not the Kylie ones unfortunately) so I can’t compare them to anything else. The one thing that is definitely true that they are cheaper than the Kylie cosmetics ones as they retail for £6.99.

I have mentioned it another blog posts that I’m a sucker for matte lips and Barry M does lip liner so well anyway, these lip kits instantly got my expectation pretty high.

I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. I love all three shades and everything about them.

So the lip kits come in three shades, To Go, Pose and Runway. They contain a lip liner and a matte lip paint. First of all let me talk about the lip liners. As I said Barry M does really good lip liner. They glide on the lips, without pulling it and they are very pigmented. If you want to you can even wear them on their own without the lip paint.

Speaking of the lip paints, they do feel like paint. So light formulation allows you to legit paint your lips with it, even the Too faced matte lipstick don’t glide on that easily as these ones. You get the true colour of the lip paint once you let it dry.

They stay on for soo long, even after eating food, and I had a hard time removing them with a wipe when I was taking photos… so if you want something that will last all day, definitely give these a try, because just like me you won’t be disappointed.
