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!

Makeup for flawless glowing skin

Swatches from Top-Bottom:

A Glam Makeup Edit

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.

Holding On to Summer Makeup Edit

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!

    I’m dying to try out a bobbi brown concealer, or anything from them actually! I’ve heard such good things x

      Yes, they make some great products! I think their corrector and concealer are must haves!

  5. bekylou says:

    I have to say I agree with you on the Bourjois eyeliner, they really do not hang around and take a lot of effort to get any colour pay off. x

    1. admin says:

      Yep, so disappointing isn’t it!

    I have those Algenist drops and I love the colour too. I like them under my foundation for an all over glow but I doubt even then I’ll be making the most of those skincare benefits either xxx

    1. admin says:

      Yes you do Reonette! And try it under a nude liquid lipstick, you will be amazed!

  11. Maisie says:

    Eeek, all of this sounds so lush! If I want to feel glam I always get my Elizabeth Arden lipstick out!

    1. admin says:

      Oooohh what shade is it?

  12. Adrienne says:

    This reminds me, I am long overdue a visit to my local NYX counter! x

    1. admin says:

      NYX is my fave, yes, and lemme know what you pick!

  13. Emma says:

    I love this post! I tend to add a smokey eye and a touch of sparkle when I want to glam it up a bit. I find it hard as I generally wear a full face of makeup daily so I donā€™t look much different unless I put a lot more on! x

    1. admin says:

      Haha, I get exactly what you mean.

  14. Megan McCoig says:

    Such pretty picks and perfect for a bit of glam. The Mac mineralize blushes are my fave, the formula is so fab xx

    1. admin says:

      Yip the formula is beautiful, I definitely want to try a few more shades!

  15. Lady Writes says:

    I’m loving those Algenist Glow Drops – so pretty! x

    1. admin says:

      They are really pretty, and are great mixed into foundation!

  16. leanne page says:

    I’m so pleased you managed to find a way to make the NYX foundation work. I love the look of those highlighting drops xx

    1. admin says:

      I really wanted to give it a good shot, but I think I should try this with a primer and see too!

  17. Mel says:

    Iā€™d love to try these out myself.
    Your swatches and photos alike are fab

      Thanks Mel! Yes, there are definitely a few you should give a try!

  18. Candice says:

    I really want to try the NYX foundation, I’m just so worried that the product is so tiny.

    1. admin says:

      It is tiny, but because it is so runny, and you only use 1-2 drops, it should last forever!

  19. Beautylymin says:

    I need to use New Romance more – it’s a stunning blush! The Algenist drops sound fab! xx

    Beautylymin

    1. admin says:

      It is so pretty! And the Algenist drops are beautiful!

  20. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the foundation! Doesn’t sound great at all, might give it a go on my skin and see whether it works for me! x

    1. admin says:

      Yip, unfortunately it didn’t work too well on me, but I also don’t use a primer, so that may be why.

  21. Loved this edit! Some of the things you mentioned are now on my wishlist – the luminising drops for sure! xx

    1. admin says:

      Thanks Siobhan. Yes, those drops are amazing!
