Current Picks 001


Now it's getting a bit colder and the nights are drawing in. My skin has noticed the change in temperature immediately and it's really acting up so I've been reaching for light weight, creamy products to combat any dryness in sight. For my base, it's been very light weight with a lot of radiance, I've been mixing the Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer in with some of my daily moisturiser and adding a pump of the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer for a radiance boost, which has created the perfect tinted moisturiser/light coverage foundation. This combo lasts all day and means my skin isn't getting super dehydrated with cakey foundations.

Next up is cheeks, I know now it's getting colder I should be putting my bronzer away but I can't help it, I'm a bronze girl at heart, always have been, so I've been reaching for the Bourjois Bronzing Primer, this teamed with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush gives my cheekbones that instant lift and a bit of a contour for a rookie like myself. If you've got any cream blush recommendations, preferably in a peachy colour, leave them below.

And finally, we have eyes. When I do actually decide to venture into the world of eyeshadow (which really isn't that often) I've been using the Max Factor Smokey Eye Effect in Bronze Haze, it's great for those lazy girls like myself who just want that little bit extra on the eyes. The pencil blended out with a MAC 217 Brush means easy smokey eyes are achievable!

My face is prepared for winter, now to sort out my tresses... Stay tuned for that coming soon!

  3. The L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer is great at giving the skin a little more radiance. Mine is lasting me forever. So glad I bought it.
    I have heard some great reviews of the Bourjois Bronzing Primer - I need to buy this. I could use the extra bronze glow this winter. I feel paler than ever.

  9. Love the Bourjois bronzing primer so much! I love the Bourjois cream blushers, they have 4 different shades and one of them is peachy I think, they are such great quality and last really well.
