As I mentioned in May’s makeup bag post, I’m now ditching the monthly favourite posts and sharing my monthly makeup bag contents with you all instead! We may already be two weeks into July, but better late than never right!?
Bourjois City Radiance Foundation |
I’m still wearing my other Bourjois foundation favourite but when I want something with a little less coverage that still gives my skin a flawless appearance, I’ll opt for City Radiance. It’s a great summer base in that it’s light, contains SPF 30 to protect my pale skin on sunny days and has an anti-pollution screen which as a Londoner is something I really need!
NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam |
I’ve raved about this a lot now and I’ll carry on for as long as this product is around. When wearing the Bourjois Healthy Mix, I always mix this in to give my skin more of a luminous glow. It really is beautiful!
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer |
Told you you’d see this again! Yep, this is still my go-to concealer and it will be for a loooong time. Even though I’m worried about me overusing it and running out quickly as it’s not cheap! So I might start saving it and go back to my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer for a little while…
Bourjois Java Rice Powder |
With my dry skin, I usually steer clear of powder. Cakey makeup? No thanks. But I had started seeing this powder on a ton of blogs recently and the reviews got me intrigued, so I had to try it. This is the most gorgeous pink-hued powder, oh my. It adds such a lovely glow to the skin without any cakey-ness or settling into fine lines. It’s really beautiful and I’d really recommend it if you love that glowy look!
Sleek Rose Gold Blush |
I seem to buy anything that is rose gold or has rose gold in its name! I’m obsessed and I can safely say I’m addicted to this beautiful blush! I own nothing like it and it just adds a really lovely pop of colour to my cheeks! It’s the perfect blush for warmer days and I love how compact the packaging is!
Maybelline Master Strobing Stick |
Say hello to my new favourite highlighter! This one is so easy to apply, just one swipe, blend and voila, you’ve got a gorgeous glow to the cheekbones. I can’t get enough of this, it’s really beautiful. A definite must try.
Max Factor 2000 Calorie Waterproof Mascara |
I’ve been meaning to try this for years and I finally decided to pick it up a few weeks ago. It’s the only waterproof mascara I own but I can’t comment on the water proof-ness yet however it’s a really lovely subtle mascara. It lifts the lashes and gives them a lovely fluttery look, I wouldn’t say it gives much in the way of volume or definition but if you just want a nice mascara for daytime wear that doesn’t look too extreme, try this one.
Seventeen Lip Lustres |
I’ve had these for ages and never really thought much of them but I decided to give them a go recently and they’re really lovely when worn on top of lipstick! They don’t add much in the way of colour but if you like that glossy lip look then these are great. No stickiness and long lasting too!
