FOTD - Just Peachy!

I was really chuffed to be complimented on my make up today, so I thought I'd give you guys a peek... I don't normally wear this much make up during the day but was having a bit of a play, as you do! 

Here's what I used (click on pics to enlarge) ...
Clarins Foundation, Laura Mercier concealer & powder, By Terry highlighter, Lipstick Queen Blush 

Face:
Clarins Skin Illusion foundation in 'honey' - applied with fingers (reviewed below - 'Something Old, Something New')
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage - applied with ELF concealer brush
By Terry La Veloute under eye highlighter, which I also swept around the entire eye area as I was looking a bit knackered! This stuff is amazing - best I've ever tried.
Lipstick Queen solid lipgloss on cheeks applied with ELF Blush Brush
Laura Mercier Starlight Mineral Illuminating Powder - a loose powder with a pale gold 'glow', best for evening use in my opinion for a lovely 'soft focus' radiant finish.

Laura Mercier Eyeshadow, Mac Eyeliner, No7 Mascara

Eyes:
Mac Technakohl liner in Earthline - a waterproof dark greyish brown liner which goes on soft and sets quickly
All eyeshadows are Laura Mercier from the Colour Wardrobe palette (reviewed below in 'Something Old, Something New') and were applied with MAC 227 brush:
Tiger's Eye - a matt taupe over eyelid
Chocolate - a dark brown verging on aubergine in crease and outer corner
Twinkling Star - a peachy nude with slight shimmer all over eye
Stellar - a cream shimmery highlight on browbone

I then applied the Chocolate on top of the liner to soften the line a little with ELF Small Smudge Brush
Mascara - No7 Exceptional Definition in Brown/Black 02

Mac Lipglass & Prestige Lipliner 

Lips:
Lightly lined with Prestige lipliner in Silk
Mac Surf Baby lipgloss in Strange Potion (also reviewed below)

Please try to ignore the hair which has been scraped back out of sight! *blush*

  6. Thanks hon... yes I must admit I wouldn't have chosen such a dark shade as I usually go quite light, but the SA rec'd it and I thought I'd give it a go coming into summer. I do love it - the consistency and smell are divine too! x
