Picnic in the Park

This is my makeup of the weekend. And I literally mean it, I wore it Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I mean I took it off at night and put it on every morning. I like my shades of pink and this look it super pretty for spring.

I’m wearing the Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in Maui. My cousin gave this to me, last summer during her wedding weekend.

And on my lips I’m wearing a Tanya Burr lipgloss, Picnic in the Park, I picked this up in London last summer.

Have you ladies tried the Benefit Porefessional primer? I heard a lot about it and was gonna purchase it when I received a sample size in my Glossybox. When I used it the first time it reminded me of a product I had already used before. It was the Maybelline Instant Anti-Age The Smoother Primer, in the pot.

I think they have now discontinued this specific product and have come out with the Instant Age Rewind Primer, which I also love.

Both of these primers give me the same exact result and they feel exactly the same.

Have you ever had that happen to you before?

What is your favorite primer?

Sleek Catrice

I love spring, it’s my favorite season of the year. I like it less because of pollen and allergies. Yesterday I couldn’t understand the headache I was having. This morning I woke up with puffy eyes and then I got it, it’s allergy season.

To try to cover up the puffiness I did my makeup in a hurry before heading to work.

I’m wearing my usual base with this Sleek blush called Life’s a Peach and Catrice Cosmetics lipgloss in the shade 070, Very Very Rasberry.

LOTD : Glossy pink

Last night I was feeling ill, I ended up snoozing on the sofa with the TV on in the background all evening. I also had a major headache and had to take a painkiller before going to bed.

This morning I woke up feeling so much better and refreshed. It’s been an intense week, I think I just needed a break and to switch off.

I didn’t know what lipstick to choose so I closed my eyes and just picked one from my drawer of lipsticks. Ended up with a lipstick I got in a Glossybox two years ago. I don’t think I’ve ever worn it before but I made myself put it on and I actually like it. I already got a compliment on it walking into my office building this morning.

The pictures don’t really show the true color. It’s not as pink as on the top picture and it’s also not as orange as on the bottom picture, it’s a mix in between and really pretty.

Chipmunk cheeks!!!

I’ve gotten the question about my cheeks quite a few times. What do I do and how do I contour. To be honest, I don’t! I don’t know how to contour that well…I just apply bronzer on my cheekbones. And they become defined like this. Of course it’s not all make up. It comes from my dads side of the family, my sister and a few of my cousins have them as well. Some more than others.

I’m wearing a Elizabeth Arden lipstick, if anyone knows the shade, it’s a shiny nude one…please let me know…!!!

LOTD : Reflecting Bloom

My lip combo today is Lumene Natural Code lipstick in the shade 3 Nude Beige with IsaDora Express Star gloss over it, it’s in the shade 54 Reflecting Bloom. I have the full size version but I like the travel size better because it’s easy to bring along for touch ups during the day.

Manhattan FOTD

FOTD= Face of the day (I think you all know that already)

I might start doing these a bit more while telling you what products I’m wearing and what I think of them.

What do you think? Would you like that?

Today I’m wearing a powder by Manhattan, a German makeup brand from what I understand.

A little bit of shopping!

Yesterday I went to the mall to pick up a shirt for a DIY project that I’ll show you here on the blog in a few days. Super excited for this one.

I also picked up a while eyeliner to brighten up my eyes with as well as a blush that’s really pigmented. It’s called Autumn Flower.
