daily face #1


In an effort to get more creative with my makeup, I like to switch things around and use products that I may have neglected recently. I will attempt to put up a daily face post every once in a while to share with you the products I am currently using.

 
Revlon Grow Luscious, Nars Pro-Prime Eyeshadow Base, Catrice Eye Brow Stylist, Laura Mercier Lush Nectarine, MAC Patina, MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW20, YSL Teint Resist in 5


YSL Teint Resist: My beloved Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation has run out and the foundation hoarder that I am, I really need to use up some of my foundations before I can justify buying a new one. No 5 is definitely a tad too dark at the moment and requires more blending. You can read the full YSL Teint Resist review here.

MAC Studio Finish Concealer: I have probably owned this concealer for way too long, but it still works fine in concealing and camouflaging. I use shade NW20 for my under eye area. This is not my favourite MAC concealer, but will do the job.

Laura Mercier Blush in Lush Nectarine: This is one of the more recent higher end blushes that I have bought. Unfortunately this beautiful peachy pink shade hasn't gotten enough love. It really works nicely to brighten up my face on a dull autumn day. You can see more pictures here.

Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara: Favourite new mascara. Gives me beautiful voluminous lashes and doesn't smudge. 

Nars Pro-Prime Eyeshadow Base: Great eyeshadow base that will keep my eyeshadow from creasing. This is a staple in my collection!

Catrice Eye Brow Stylist: This is my drugstore eye brow pencil of choice. I have this in 030 Brow-n-eyed Peas. It's a great neutral brown that goes well with light brown - black hair.

MAC Patina & Era Eyeshadows: 2 of my favourite MAC neutrals. Patina is such a staple in my collection. It's a light multi-faceted taupe with golden and pink sheen to it. Era is a light golden brown that I like to use all over the lid, just like Patina or as a crease colour.

What have you been wearing lately?

Love,
Maya

    1. Dear, you definitely need Patina. Depending on the angle and skin tone it changes colour. It's so gorgeous. xx

  4. Nice! It's always fun to deliberately play with makeup that has been ignored of late. Laura Mercier's blushes really are lovely. Totally underrated. I've been loving the shade Rose Petal, which is a neutral-warm rosy pink. Very pretty! :)
