I've had a couple of questions about the make up I was wearing in my last post been wearing . With the exception of my eye make up, I've pretty much had the same products on my dressing table for the last couple of weeks.
Chanel Mat Lumiere
It took me a long time to work out that the best way to apply mat lumiere is with my ELF powder brush - this paired with Maybelline Dream Matte Powder gives me amazing coverage that lasts all day. As an experiment, I tried applying it again with my fingers - the coverage was patchy by lunch time. My skin has never looked so good without looking like I'm wearing lots of make up. Chanel, please don't discontinue Mat Lumiere :(
Dior Bronze 002 Honey Tan
I've spoken about honey tan before as a cheek product rather than an all over bronzing product. This is predominantly because of the subtle shimmering particles in the powder...
Similar to NARS Laguna and the Bourjois chocolate bronzer, when applied to the skin, the shimmer doesn't translate as you can see in the photos in the post below. Instead, honey tan gives a really pretty, bronzed look to my face without looking muddy or orange. It has definitely taken over Laguna as my favourite bronzing product - I really want to try the matte version next!
M.A.C Dainty Mineralize Blush
I honestly forgot how much I loved dainty - it's such a natural and subtle blush that gives a peachy-pink flush with a pretty shimmer. This means I don't need to apply a separate highlighter - another lazy girl must have! It blends really prettily onto the cheek and has brilliant staying power. Dainty has quickly become my perfect blush for everyday.
NARS Oasis Lipgloss
I seem to be on a bit of a NARS lip product kick at the moment - Oasis is part of the NARS autumn collection and it is beautiful! It is a plum gloss with flecks of gold glitter however, although the colour looks quite intense in the tube, it is quite sheer on the lips. I've found that it is ideal for layering on top lipsticks - if you have NARS Dolce Vita you NEED Oasis, they look amazing together! The one downside is the gloss is quite sticky - not dazzleglass sticky but you can definitely feel you have gloss on your lips. You can see what it looks like on it's own in the post below.
Lots of Love
