What I've been wearing...


I wanted to share some of the products that I've been wearing over the last couple of weeks, these are always my favourite posts to read of others!

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 225, DiorSkin Nude Tan Sun Powder in 003 Cinnamon, Tarte Amazonian clay bronzer in Park Avenue Princess, Clinique Gel Liner, Topshop Eyeshadow Trio in Atmosphere, YSL Rouge Pur Couture in number 11 and YSL Golden Gloss in Number 42.  

I am still in love with my new Dior bronzer and have used it everyday.  It gives such a beautiful, sun kissed look to the skin without looking orange or muddy. You can read my full review of the powder here.  

In theory, Maybelline's Fit Me foundation shouldn't work as I have quite oily skin.  However, I love the natural, dewy finish it gives, the buildable coverage, the wide shade range and the light formulation. It's  an extremely fluid foundation meaning that when it's applied, it feels extremely lightweight on the skin.  It is not the most long lasting of formulas, however as long as I use a primer and a powder it lasts throughout the day (this is probably helped by the fact my skin in winter is not as oily). Although the foundation contains SPF18 it still photographs beautifully; if it was a little more long lasting, Fit Me would be perfect!

Tarte's Park Avenue Princess is described as a bronzer, however I prefer to use it as a cheek colour. It's quite a warm shade that is fairly sheer but buildable.  The powder has a golden pearlised finish making this a perfect two-in-one cheek product that blends beautifully into the skin.  

(Sorry I couldn't wait to use this before photographing it!)

The Topshop eye shadow Trio in Atmosphere is beautiful, if a little overpriced at £16.  The palette is part of the Dark Side of the Nude collection and contains metallic purple, gold and silver shades.  They are very pigmented, blendable and although they look a little chalky in the pan, there is no fall out when applied to the eye.    

This lip combination is an old faithful of mine, YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks are one of my favourite formulas.  Although number 11 Rose Carnation is a little frosty, it is easy to wear and extremely flattering.  Teamed with Golden Gloss 42, the perfect, glossy pink lip is born.

Below you can see how Maybelline Fit Me looks on, I think the finish is beautiful and gives just the right amount of coverage.  You can also see how pretty and natural Park Avenue Princess looks when used as a cheek colour.

Lots of Love
