Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere Foundation

Browsing

I like to keep my makeup pretty simple during the week. For me its all about glowing skin with lots of highlighter. In this post I chat about some of my go to products for my every day makeup look. Its pretty much on the luxury side of makeup at the moment for me but I always change it up. I am just loving all these products I am currently using. Usually I have little time to get ready so I like to keep it simple. I do change up my lips depending on my mood but I kept it pretty simple here.

I am really loving my Chanel Aqua Vitalumiere foundation. I only got it a couple months ago and I love the finish that it gives my skin. Here I am using the Swiitch beauty blender to apply it in as it really gives a seamless finish. I really do love a liquid foundation as it really adds to the glow on my skin.

For the eyes I keepo it as simple as possible in the day and usually amp it up at night or if I have somewhere special to be. The Fenty Beauty Match Stix Shimmer in Rum Gilded Bronze can be used either as a highlighter for darkler skin tones but I like to use it on my eyes. It really compliments my eye colour and just adds something to my overall look. I really do love a bronze eye. Just sweep some on and blend out the edges.

I have a few mascara’s as its the one thing I can’t live without. One of my favs is the Pat Mcgrath Fetish Lashes it just gives the volume my lashes need. For me mascara totally transfoms my eyes from looking a bit dead to totally wide awake eyes.

I can’t live without bronzer whether its cream or powder depends what look I want. Here I am using my cream Soleil de Tan Chanel bronzing base as it adds to that overall glowng sunkissed skin. Apply with a contour brush on all ther areas where the sun would naturally hit your face. You can really build up the tan with this product and add some warmth if you feeling on the pastey side.

Blush adds that extra pop to the complexion I am pretty partial to a pink or a peach. I love this Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush as it has a shimmer so just more glow. Apply onto the bottom of your cheeks and swipe all the way up to the cheek bone.

Highlighter, highlighter and more highlighter is what I love. I have quite a few in my personal stash as its just the one thing that makes everything look amazing. Becca Cosmetics have it down when it comes to highlighter. I know I have been banging on about this one but I just love it. Its the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop. You can only by the liquid form here in SA on Muse Beauty.

Look how pretty that glow is. Apply the highlighter on the top of the cheek bones, bridge of your nose, cupids bow and you can pop some on your brow bone.

I love this Clarins Lip Perfector in no 19. I chatted about this new shade last week if you didn’t see check it out here. The lipstick gives that wet gloss look so it definitey compliments the glowing skin.

Et Voila the finished look. Its super simple with no fuss at all. Healthy glowing skin with a pop on the eyes and cheeks.

I wanted to chat about a few of my favourite Chanel beauty products today especially for those thinking of splurging but not sure what to get. Of course their eyeshadows are lovely and basically everything Chanel is lovely but here is a little selection. I have selected mostly makeup items but also with one skincare product too from the Hydra Beauty range. For me makeup is all about good skin that’s contoured and glowing so that’s why I have chosen the makeup items in this post. Chanel have quite a few foundations to choose from and it can get confusing what to go for. Here I have gone for a dewy one but their latest matt foundation is also amazing. It really depends on what look you are going for.
