As promised here is a run down of today's make up! I use a mixture of different brands and products, all of which can be found in Boots or Superdrug. I'm in love with the 'B' range in Superdrug at the minute. I use their day moisturising cream, make up primer and make up range! Specifically their primer is fabulous.
When applied to the skin it leaves it feeling baby soft and acts as a perfect base before foundation. It can also be used on its own if you fancy a make up free day to give you that fresh and awake look! Second, I use Rimmel's Wake Me Up foundation stick!
I adore this, it can be dotted or applied to blemishes and it also goes really well under your eyes to get rid of dark circles or that tired, baggy-eye look (we've all been there!). I will go into detail with my favourite products in the B. range another time because there is also a really good eye pen which helps eradicate tired eyes! I then use MUA Beauty Balm and Rimmel Stay Matte foundation in colour 100 Ivory.
MUA is a great budget product, I think most or all items are sold in Superdrug for £1 each! The beauty balm is very pale and I use it as a base to build up the colour I want. It's a very light balm as well, leaving the skin smooth not sticky or greasy. The Rimmel foundation is quite like a mousse so a lot thicker in comparison. I chose a shade or two darker than the balm so I could build up my foundation base and yet still keep a pale look going. I then follow this with Natural Collection foundation powder in Ivory. Another budget product, this is one of the only pale powders I have found that goes on lightly and does not make my face feel heavy or overdone! Both are applied using a small application sponge; I find these help to get a really even coverage. My eyes are not something I concentrate too much on in this look. I used a very light line of B. eyeliner. This comes in a really cute pot and with a small applicator too! I then finish off with one or two coats of Collection 2000 Volumising Mascara!
I decided to contrast pale skin with bright, bold lips! Previously, you may have seen my post on Revlon's collection of Just Bitten Lip Balm stains! My favourite so far has to be 015 Cherish Devotion! I love have bold these are and even with long wear it leaves a stained coat on your lips, which I can then just layer a clear gloss over!
And there it is! The products I used today for this look! Thank you for reading!
