My make up collection is huge! But I tend to stick to the same brand with particular products especially when it comes to foundations, blushers and mascaras. I must admit I am a bit of a make up snob and won't use a cheaper branded products when it comes to foundations especially. I have tried cheaper brands in the past and they just haven't worked well with my skin at all. Not that there is anything wrong with using a cheaper brands, if I found one that worked well for me then I would use it but over the years of trying many none of them have worked. I think with products like eye shadows you can get away with using anything. You could use a £5 eye palette and still get the same results as using a £30 one!
So back to my FAVE brand, Clarin's. My previous make up post I talked about the SS16 collection and now I have a few more lovely products to tell you about.
The look I have gone for id say is quite natural with the colours I have used.
Included in my look I have used the:
Instant Concealer £22 - Now I can't rave enough about this product. If you are looking for a product that hides dark circles or blemishes then this is the product for you. The coverage on the concealer is amazing. It has been a savour on the nights I have had broken sleep!
The great thing about the product is that you only need a small dab. It smoothes nicely over the eye area without leaving the skin looking hydrated instead of dry.
Tired Mum's this is a must have!!!
I love to wear a blush on top of my foundation so this Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Colour £27 is perfect. Its not too harsh looking and gives a real natural glow on the cheeks. The palette contains different shades and finishes so you can mix up and create either a natural daytime or evening look.
On my lips I am wearing the Rouge Éclat £20 lipstick this shade is lovely Nude Rose, perfect for the every day look if you love wearing a lippy that isn't too bring then this shade is the one for you. The lipsticks are very hydrating which is good for me as I tend to suffer from dry lips. The end result is great as I don't get left with that dry cracked look! Very smooth and natural.
The other product featured in the photo above is the Liquid Bronze Self Tanning Lotion which I will be doing a separate post of later this week which will be featuring my favourite tanning products!
*Foundation used is MAC Studio Fix
