Back to business. I love reading beauty posts where the blogger goes through all the items making up their make up. All the better when we see the end results in pictorial form... so that's what I'm doing today!
I was actually pretty horrified after assembling all my daily products and the realisation of just how much stuff I put on my face for the purposes of being presentable. Is this normal?? I fear not. But whatever.. this is what it takes for me to not scare small children when I leave the house each day.
First up: let's cover the bases:
|L-R: Clarins Beauty Flash Balm / MAC Face Protect /|
Clinique Even Better Eyes / A-DERMA Lip Balm
|Real Techniques Stippling Brush / Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat (Shade 1) / |
Clinique BB Cream (Shade 01) / MAC Blot Powder (Medium) / MAC Select Cover Up (NW20)
|MAC Paint Pot (Soft Ochre) / Benefit They're Real Mascara (Black) / Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil (Dark Brown) /|
Boots Eyelash Curler / Revlon Colorstay Eyeshadow Quad (Addictive) / Pixi Lash Line Ink (Black)
|Benefit Posie Tint / Clinique Chubby Stick (Chunky Cherry)|
Ta daa! There we have it. Just a further note that for my eye make up I usually just use the two lightest shades from the eyeshadow quad, mainly due to laziness.
As you can see, I favour more high-end products - this after years of trial and error with the cheaper end of the spectrum, which just do not produce the same results, particularly foundation and powder. Fact.
I shudder to think how much this would all cost if I were to add it all up, so I shan't. So there.
