If there’s one thing I love to do and actually, have been caught drifting off during the day by my family and friends, is plan my makeup for the next day. There’s just something comforting about thinking what I want to wear the next day, and lay it all out for me to see.
Now, most days I really love having a shimmery cream eyeshadow as base for a powder eyeshadow, because I find that this is the easiest way to have some dimension on my eyes. But, today I chose two cream products. I used the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerize in Bette all over. This is a gorgeous bronze gold, and very pigmented. It’s stunning on its own. But, I topped this, just on the center of the lid with Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop in Leila. Leila is love ! If you like coppery pinks, this one is a must have. Combined with the gold underneath, it looks as stunning peach pink gold shimmer. Arrggh ! Beautiful !
Now, for my face, I like having dewy glowy skin, all year round. And I also have dry skin. This Too Faced Hangover X primer is a new find, but where has this been all my life ?! This is just the shot of hydration and plumpness my skin needs every morning. I combined that with the Soap & Glory Hocus Focus illuminator. I was intrigued by this one, it comes out of the tube as a white liquid, but upon touching the skin, turns peach.Once blended out, it truly smooths out my skin and gives it a soft focus like effect. Loving this one as well !
The everyday staples of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light all over my face with Anastasia Beverly Hills highlighter in So Hollywood at high points of my face. As I said, I never feel like there’s any such thing as too much glow ! And a bold lip courtesy Marc Jacobs Le Marc in Je T’aime, described as a ‘rum raspberry’.It is a beautiful bold pinky berry red *what is even that description* and looks gorgeous.
What makeup have you chosen for Monday madness ? <3
