I am not one to switch things up in my beauty routine. If I do change, it is due to the change in weather or season conditions; otherwise, the base and foundation stays the same. Finding what works for you, your skin, your routine and time is essential to dressing your face each day. Brands like NARS, Revlon and Marc Jacobs understand and know how I like to treat my face, whether its full or light coverage. Other brands such as Charlotte Tilbury, Burberry, Tom Ford, Chanel, etc are the trimmings to an already made up look. They are the jewels and jems to my look. From these brands I look for a new shade of lipstick, eyeshadow or blush.
I thoght I'd start my journal off by sharing some of my favourite items with you. This entry and ones to come are the basis behind each photo you've followed on instagram thus far.
Dolce & Gabanna Blush
This luminous cheek powder has the perfect amount of saturation to its pigment. When looking for a blush, I look for something with perfect amount of smoky undertones to keep my colour palette in the neutral zone while still creating that flushed look. My skin is fare and my cheeks have little to no rosiness, therefore I follow what my skin already gives me with just a small push.
NARS Tiare Bronzer
NARS Duo Eye Palette
This NARS Duo Eyeshadow Platte in colour Madrague is the ultimate eye go-to. The colours appear natural and is the perfect contour palette for eyes. This is the kind of palette that you don't need a mirror but the perfect brush because the pigment glides-on the same every time with a subtle nature.
NARS Eye Kit
This NARS & God Create Women Eye Kit is a discontinued item. In the usual case, I would not share such things on my blog but consider this a placeholder for the next eyeshadow palette I fall in love with. Creating a smoky eye on already a small eyelid is difficult but with these monochromatic browns its easy to open up my eyes and bring out my hazel coloured iris.
