The magic of make-up

Now before anyone says “you don’t need make up”. I do not wear make up because I dislike how I look. I do have a few spots on my face due to oily skin. I have over the years learned to control it. Ill talk about this in another post though. (Link will be inserted at later date)

Before…… I ignoring the dry shampoo in my roots (I’m not grey)

I like to wear make up to experiment and extenuate certain features and sometimes cover up.  So starting with the base on my make up…. I always use Witch Skin Clearing Primer (£6.99). This primer is good for oily and combination skin. Instead of adding to the oiliness it pulls the oil out of the skin. It also makes a barrier to so foundation seeping into pores. All helping spot prone skin like mine. Plus a moisturisers which prevents the drying out of skin.

Next I use Maybelline- Dream Matte Mousse (£7.69). This a high coverage foundation. I feel like it gives me a good coverage of the skin. I use 05 porcelain colour to match this. Now to set all this I like to use a powder to prevent any shine. Using Maybelline- Fit Me 125 (£5.99) to apply this I use the powder brush(End brush pictured) from my Fraulein 38 Brush Set (About £12 when I purchased), I got this from amazon. I was very pleased with this although I had a small amount of fall out at the beginning.

Fraulein 38 Brush Set

Another Steal I got from amazon is also from Fraulein 38. This is the 183 colour eyeshadow, highlight, Blush and bronze palette (About £12?). Using the dark brown colour(In the contour kit), I use a smaller brush from the above kit to fill in my eyebrows, and a colour that matches my skin to highlight around. Using a contoured brush (next to the powder brush) apply the bronzed brown to the contours of your cheeks, small amounts to either side of the temple and nose. Using the white powder contrasting the bronzer on the tops of the cheeks middle of nose and middle temple apply small amounts using blush brush. Finally using the palest pink in the palette apply this to the apple of the cheeks.

For the eyes I used a pale pink on the main eye and then a purple towards the outer corners. I used a sparkly blue and a light pale purple. I applied and blended with eye brushes in the above kit. I also used the Beauty Uk Twist Pencil (£2.49) in Black to line the bottom and top lash line. Finally for the eyes I used Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Curl Mascara Ultra Black (£7.99) (That was a mouth full!!!) And last but not least the lips..I actually left these plain with just some vaseline on…
