A Glam Makeup Edit
Monday, 29 Jan 2018
Hi ladies, today I would like to share A Glam Makeup Edit with all of you. I love glowing radiant skin, and bright lips, and to me, that flawless skin look is the ultimate glam!
Swatches from Top-Bottom:
Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Concealer in Dark Peach Bisque- I love this product so much! It works so well under my eyes without creasing or making the area look dry! It also isn’t too orange, but still has a peach tint, so it works as a corrector and concealer in one.
NYX Professional Makeup Total Control Drop Foundation- I had high hopes for this foundation as it was so hyped up, but unfortunately it left me wanting more. It didn’t work on my dehydrated skin, and left it looking older and more dehydrated than it actually is, thanks to the extremely thin consistency that settled into any place it could. I should mention that I don’t use a primer very often, and every time I tried this, I didn’t use a primer. I did find however, that if I mix it with some highlighting drops, such as this one from The Body Shop, or the ones below from Algenist, the foundation becomes dewy and much more wearable! I will definitely try and use this again using a primer and see if I can make it work.
Algenist Reveal Concentrated Luminizing Drops in Champagne and Rose- These are amazing at adding a glow by either mixing with foundation, or applying on top of foundation. I absolutely love the shade Champagne. These drops apparently have some skincare ingredients too, but I don’t see how it would be beneficial, as it is applied over so many layers of other products.
MAC Mineralize Blush in New Romance- This blush is really pretty, although as a blush, it doesn’t show up too well on my skin tone. I do find that using it as a highlighting blush topper, it gives my face a very pretty glow!
Bourjois Eyeliner in Smoked Brown- I quite like brown eyeliner, as it is less dramatic, and more natural looking. Also, in the extreme hit, melting black eyeliner is not cool! That being said, this one from Bourjois is not very pigmented, and is pretty disappointing.
AVON Ultra Glimmerstick Lip Liner in True Red- This liner is absolutely stunning, I love it, I even featured it in my November Beauty Favourites. It is so pigmented, non-drying, and applies so smoothly!
Estee Lauder Lip Potion in Cold Fire- This liquid lipstick is a gorgeous vibrant orange that is long lasting and comfortable on the lips. I love anything bright and orange, it just brightens my day!
Sorme Tasty Tubes Lip Gloss- A glossy lip can sometimes be more flattering than a matte lip, and this clear gloss is a perfect way to add some juiciness to the lips!
Thanks for reading Ladies, what is your go-to glam makeup look?
