I get lots of amazing products to test out plus I am always buying new things to try out too, yes I am a beauty addict of note. But I tell myself I am a makeup artist so I need it. Each Friday I hope to post what’s in my makeup bag for the week and what I am loving. I am always on the go so I always need my makeup bag handy and to be able to do some touch ups while I am out and about or add something extra.
Stila Stay All Day Foundation: I recently blogged about this foundation and its just stayed in my makeup bag ever since. I normally use different ones but I am really loving the foundation. It leaves my skin so smooth and there is no shiney finish so it lasts longer. My skin looks absolutely flawless so its a keeper.
Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Fluid: I have been using this fluid either on its own or as a base for my foundation, it leaves my skin feeling amazing and so healthy. I keep this in my bag for later on in the day so rather than apply more foundation I just add some of the fluid to inject some hydration into my skin and have a beautiful glowing finish.
Smashbox Lipgloss: Loving the latest Smashbox lipgloss additions. There are quite a few shades but I am loving the pink shade as it brightens up my face if I am looking a little tired. I believe a bright lip wakens up the face and takes away the appearnce of looking tired. The gloss applies really easily and is beautifully pigmented.
Maybelline Baby Lips: The baby lips are here to stay in SA so very happy about that they come in a few shades but I like the natural one as I can also use to highlight my cheekbones or my eyelids to give that gloss effect.
Maybelline Master Smokey: I am a big Maybelline fan as you can tell, this latest Master Smokey pencil makes my life so my easier. I apply the liner to my top lash line and can either just have a liner on my top lids or the other side of the pen I take the eye smudger and blend in the pencil to create a smokey eye in a minute. Yes please life made easy.
Maybelline The Colossal Extreme Volume (launches June): Maybelline Mascara’s are one of my favourite of the drugstore brands. The latest addition to their mascara family is the Go Extreme Volume, well it does what is says it gives me extra length and boy do I need it. The applicator has a double pump wand which coats those lashes and gives more volume and what looks like some extra length.
Revlon Classy Coral Blush: I love a fresh face look and for me I literally have 5 minutes to do my makeup and bronzer and blush are key to completing the look. This is the first time I have used a Revlon blush but I love it. I have been using it on myself and on my Fairlady Magazine bridal shoot this week to give that beautiful rosy flush to the cheeks.
