Mama Make Up Pt.2

So I did a post last week on what I use to give my face a bit of a boost day to day and thought I might share the updated version that I do for a more glam look. There is a stage three which is all kinds of ALL out but I rarely bother going this full on so chances are you will be waiting a while for that post.

I also had my fujifilm x3 out for a play so my pictures are a bit more fancy than the usual iPhone ones I think (let me know if I’m improving or just delusional ๐Ÿ˜‚)

At the moment I’m using a super cute sample of this Paul and Joe Primer, which I think gives a lovely glow and am deliberating on whether to buy the full size or not. My concealer is the same as before – the Benefit Boi-ing is just my go to and works well for me. I recently bought this Bare Minerals foundation, I think it’s their newest one, and so far I like it for a medium buildable coverage that lasts really well.

I added to my glow with some good old Benefit High Beam, and gave my skin a flush with Glossier Cloud Paint and then a dusting of my Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing Powder. My brows are filled in and slightly shaped with ABH Dipbrow pomade which is one of the best eyebrow products I have found so far!

My ride or die for a more ‘done’ eye is my ABH Modern Renaissance palette. It has all the tones I really ever want for most of the eye looks I do. As this was for an afternoon out with my girls I just used two of my fave shades (Buon Fresco & Antique Bronze) and then highlighted with the sparkly Vermeer. My Soap and Glory Mascara finishes my eye look – I decided to leave off eyeliner so it wasn’t too OTT for a day look.

I finished with this hot pink lipstick from Clinique (I got mine free in one of their gift bags in the skin care event but think this is the closest I can spot to purchase)

What do you think? I realise it’s not vastly different from my normal make up but I don’t really believe in not looking at least vaguely like myself just cos I’m going out.
