But peachy colours are spring & summer colours, I hear you cry. Yeah, well, they are, but – so what?! If you find a colour that equally suits your skin tone & taste than you’d be a turd to avoid it for a whole season or even two. Here’s a rundown of products I used to create this peachy autumn make-up look.
⇝ Touch in SOL Make-up boomer: I don’t think I even go out without this little gem on my face anymore. It makes such a difference to the look of my skin! A fresh skin transformer in the bottle, that’s what it’s meant to be called. Read full review here.
⇝ Vichy Dermablend foundation: I don’t even believe myself when I say that in the picture above there is no luminizing or blurring effect applied. None at all. That absolutely flawless & pore-erasing effect is created purely by Vichy. How flippin’ awesome? Probably the only full coverage foundation that I can wear day & night without making my skin knackered and spotty, yes!
⇝ Seventeen Phwoarr concealer: The concealer of past month. How do people live without this?! Every time I see someone with massive under eye bags, I’m tempted to pull this out of my handbag and slap it on their face. SORTED.
⇝ Sleek Contour kit: The contour kit of choice. Because there’s no harm in makin’ your face look a tad slimmer, innit.
⇝ Illamasqua pigment in Androgen: This little pigment pot costs £17.50 at the moment – I paid £7 on sale & I’m gonna make sure that I’ll grab some more pots once they are on sale. Shockingly long lasting as a cream blush which compliments my skin tone more than Topshop Head over heels. Yes, I said it. I like this more than Head over heels. Oops! Its consistency is much thicker, maybe even chalkier and that’s what makes it such a great product – you’d have to rub it off your face to get it off!
⇝ Fashionista Eyebrow kit: The cool brown brow kit – because I don’t like my brows looking all gingery, ehm.
⇝ Estee Lauder Pure colour eyeshadow in Enchanted Forest Shimmer: £17 for some 2 grams of an eye shadow? You cray cray?! I grabbed this in a carboot sale market in Walsall for 2 quid & am well chuffed with it! Not too pigmented, not too powdery – just the right amount of everything. For £17 I’d question the worthiness of it though – & maybe grabbed the AKA Grass Hopper duo instead – for mere 7 quid.
⇝ MUA Going for gold palette: A limited edition of MUA palette that turned out to be rather unlimited. I used to be such a fan of MUA. *sigh* The colours are still great and buttery though, no matter what the company’s spirit has turned into. *a tiny hidden mini-rant hint* You can read a full review here.
⇝ Oriflame VolumeBuild mascara: A budget mascara that I’ve personally proclaimed to be Benefit They’re Real dupe – and currently on sale for something like a fiver? Hell yes! Read a full review here – & check out those lash swatches!
⇝ Measurable Difference Amplifying liquid eyeliner in Brown: You would not believe how flattering can brown eyeliner be. Women should really start taking choice of eyeliner colour more seriously. Read a full review here.
⇝ Illamasqua lipstick in Obey: The lipstick that no one seems to know whether to buy or not. I bought it. I used it. I still don’t know whether you should buy it or not. Or whether I should have bought it or not. On some days I think it’s the worst piece of poo-stick ever. On some days it seems like the ultimate pick. *sigh* THE LIPSTICK DILEMMA. Either way, it’s as dry as a hundred year old piece of chalk, so slap on at least a handful of lip balm before you apply it. Shade-wise it’s Androgen in a stick – if baby pink was a peach colour, it would look like this.
