Earthy Toned Makeup Tutorial

Tom Ford Terra Bronzer, Chanel Cheeky, Charlotte Tilbury Hepburn Honey, Bobbi Brown Camel, Mac Groundwork, Benefit They're Real, Hourglass Auburn, Mac Costa Riche

I feel like there is this weird thing about beauty blogging that makes you fall in love with neutral makeup. Or maybe it’s just the 90s trend but I have fallen for it. I find it sort of hard to believe that I thought brown eyeshadows, bronzer and dark nude lipsticks didn’t suit me. Now, I go to the Mac counter, apply Honeylove and it’s like I was born to wear this colour.

But it’s actually a real story. Sadly, Honeylove was sold out but I did initially only ran out to get Groundwork right after both Anna and Tamira mentioned it in their July Favourites. It’s just the most beautiful warm medium brown shade. And it’s matte. I feel like it might even be very similar to Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes in Taupe, not as long-wearing though.

Bronzed Up Tutorial

Bronze goddess perhaps wouldn’t be my wording of choice to describe myself. I don’t tan. Or perhaps I would tan a little bit if a St Barth’s beach holiday came my way.

Updated Foundation Routine + Blog Schedule

Burberry BB Cream, Urban Decay Naked Skin, Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish

Things have got a little bit mixed up with scheduling last month. I missed monthly faves simply because I didn’t feel like I had too many products to feature and then this post was supposed to go up two weeks ago but my Charlotte Tilbury ordered took 26 days to arrive. Let’s just move on. I switched up my base products yet again. It’s definitely still a light base with a luminous finish but there is a new powder in town (nah, just my makeup stash) and it’s a good one for combating the summer heat bit-too-shiny effect.

Birthday Makeup Tutorial

Chanel Raffinement, Nars Dolomites, Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria, Mad Red Chestnut, Hourglass Mood Exposure

It was my birthday yesterday and that calls for Moët & Chandon, Ninotchka and general relaxation mode. How fun but then what did you expect on a Monday? Last year, I went to Reichstag and a guy almost crushed me with a door so it was kind of nicer this time round.

Go-To Effortless Everyday Makeup

One of those days you’re just so uninspired to get ready in the morning that the last thing you wanna do is pick your makeup and outfit. I actually press snooze five times just to consider this issue. Somehow all those shimmery eyeshadow don’t look very inviting and you just want to slap on something that you won’t despise at the end of the day. I might change one or two things but the general idea is all the same – mostly matte eye and a variety of lipsticks. Continue reading “Go-To Effortless Everyday Makeup”
