Lavender Smokey Eye Makeup

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

Another week, another look. Did I do one last week, don't think so. This wasn't planned because well my face isn't feeling it's best - a woman's burden as I call it has taken it's toll, I've been feeling quite bleh! My skin was showing it so what better way than to fake that good skin feeling with a brand new make-up tan!

I noticed that since I purchased Chinchilla by Lime Crime last year, I've not featured it in a make-up look. I've worn it out but haven't shared it with you until now! The horror.

Starting on a clean face I primed using Givenchy Mister Smooth Smoothing Primer* which I quite liked on first impression. It created a smooth canvas, I used a small amount on the key oily points and rubbed it in.

Givenchy Mister Radiant* & Barry M Flawless Matte Finsh Foundation these two I combined to give me that tanned look. The Mister Radiant is a gel and needs to be worked with quickly before it gets to that tacky dry. Honestly when it settled onto the skin with my foundation, I didn't have any dried patches or that sticky gel feeling. btw I applied these with my hands.

2 of my favourites. Pop the theBalm Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer on the high points, ran theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer around my face like a crazy lady.

Prime the lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion before taking a blending brush and applying MAC Cosmetics Beautiful Iris all over the lid, emphasising on the inner and outer corners. Taking NV Colour Lavender* and another blending brush I applied this to the centre of the lid. I then buffed out any transition that occurs between the last two in the crease. Taking Urban Decay Alien (Vice Palette) I put this through the crease, giving more colour to the inner corner than outer. Taking a thin angled brush I used MAC Cosmetics Nehru and gave a slight depth on the lash line and a slight wing and blended into the other shadows.

2 applications of the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara* before popping on the ESQIDO false lashes *.

Finish off with Lime Crime Chinchilla Lipstick.

Zephyr joined me for the photo session. Quite fitting as inside the box was a sample of White Rabbit Skincare Toning Eye Cream.Made by hand this eye cream tightens, firms, reduces eye circles and puffiness and repairs damaged skin. It's packed with antioxidants and vitamins with ingredients such as Green Tea, Rosehip Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Chamomile and Carrot Seed Essential Oils.

CoFresh Sour Cream and Chive Quinoa Chips, these were so delicious and I was gutted when they were finished. Quinoa is said to be a superfood so what a good way to include it than in a nice. I noticed while looking on the website I have seen the brand in Sainsbury's which makes me happy as it's very accessible for me to stock up on.

Freedom Mallows Choc Dip, my favourite marshmallows, this brand new product has a dark chocolate dipping sauce and soft and chewy vegan marshmallows to make the perfect combination. Couldn't be faulted. Some of my sauce was stolen to be put on pancakes.

FitBites Spirulina Stretch, 2 rolled balls full of 40% Apricots, 38% Medjool dates, 14% Almonds (nuts), 6% Coconut & 2% Spirulina. There are 3 different FitBites flavours, these make nice quick snacks or if you're peckish and want something healthy to nibble on.

Supernutrients Banana Powder, what I really like about this is that it can be added to my smoothies which I live for and the Supernutrients website has 16 different superfoods and some I'm interested in trying. I just wish that the website made it easier for ordering as it's not an add to cart but I can inform you that it does retail for £4.00.

I'd love to know if you've got any favourite healthy snacks?
