Although it’s meant to be almost summer, the weather hardly looks it. So instead of shopping for peachy sun dresses and off shoulder tops I’ve gone for a turtle neck and a coat. And with that comes spring make-up adapted to the dark tones of grey clouds and misty mornings. I believe this is a pretty sophisticated and almost Parisian look, what do you think?
For the base I used the Illamasqua Matte Veil Primer (£32, HQ Hair – buy here) which makes any make-up photoshop-smooth – looking at the picture now it looks almost extremely flawless! And instead of foundation I’m wearing Perricone MD Face Finishing Moisturiser Tint (£53, John Lewis – buy here) – it’s one of my holy grail products and you can read more about it here. I’m always wearing a touch of the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair (£4.19, Superdrug – buy here) – a very affordable concealer which does the job more than well enough! On my cheeks I’m wearing the EX1 Cosmetics blusher in Pretty in Peach (£9.50, HQ Hair – buy here) which is the prettiest peach shade! My eyebrows are done up with the new L’Oreal Paris Perfection Brow Artists Plumper (£5.99, Boots – buy here) which I’ve only had for a couple of day but seems to be pretty damn good – although I would not recommend it to anyone with lighter eyebrows than me as it’s very very dark! On my eyes I’m wearing The Balm Nudetude palette (£26.50, HQ Hair – buy here) which has some stunning shades in it – it’s just as good or maybe even better than my favourite Stila In the Light (yeah, I said it!). On my lash line I have the Pixi Lash Line Ink (£12, HQ Hair – buy here) because it adds thickness to my lashes which are coated by dozens and dozens of coats of Clinique High Impact mascara (£17.50, Boots – buy here). On my lips I’m wearing the ultimate 90’s shade – Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Buff (£19.50, HQ Hair – buy here).
