Face - For foundation, I use my trusty Estee Lauder Double Wear in the shade Cool Bone. I am still on the lookout for a drugstore alternative that suits my skin, and a few of you who read this blog and/or follow me on Twitter have offered some interesting suggestions, so look out for another review coming soon! I apply Collection Lasting Perfection concealer under my eyes - I forgot to include this in the photo - then powder my skin with Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder.
Eyebrows - I use the Benefit Brow Zings palette, which I talked about in-depth here. I'm still loving this product. Although it was expensive, I have been using it liberally since buying it nearly two months ago and have barely made a dent in it, so I reckon it will be a long time before I need a new one.
Bronze/Blush/Highlight - I have spoken before on my blog about my Aunty, who for some unknown reason off-loads unwanted high end makeup on me every time I see her. (I don't ask why. I just take the makeup and run.) One such acquisition was the Estee Lauder palette which you can see in the top right-hand corner of the above photo. It has a blusher and powder highlight that I must confess I haven't really used that much yet, but nestled between them is the Bronze Goddess Bronzer in 01, and it's really lovely. I use it to warm up my whole face, then add Mac Peaches blusher and a generous sweep of Benefit Watt's Up highlighter at the top of my cheekbones and under the arch of my brows.
Eyes - I use an old Chanel duo that is no longer available but easily replicated - a creamy colour for the lids and a warm, mid-brown blended into the crease. Instead of liner, I've been experimenting with using Natural Collection eyeshadow in Crushed Walnut along my upper and lower lash lines, to create a softer effect. My current mascara is Lancôme Hypnose Star.
Lips- This is the one part of this makeup that I've changed recently, and I actually think it makes the look. With my one and only nude lipstick running out fast, I made a naughty little detour on my last supermarket shop to visit the beauty aisle, and ended up coming away with Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight. I wasn't 100% sure about it until I actually put it on, but as soon as I did, I loved it. It's a gorgeous peachy colour. It doesn't have amazing staying power, but it's beautifully pigmented and has a lovely creamy consistency. I can see myself repurchasing this over and over again.
So there you have it - my peachy, polished makeup look. Let me know what you think!
