My Favourite Make Up

I'm sorry there has been a gap in outfit posts, Sams always at work whilst I'm still in bed, so we never have time during the week to take photos! And as the sun goes down so quickly now, its always too dark around 4-5pm! I might try some self timer shots tomorrow and see how they come out! For now, I took a few photos of my favourite bits of make up that I use on a regular basis. 

Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer, Estee Lauder Double Wear, No.7 Perfect Light Loose Powder

-I only use the heavy full coverage foundation by Estee Lauder on nights out, and ONLY if my skin is already fresh beforehand, as I've found it looks really cakey when my skin is especially dry. The primer does help make the foundation stay on longer, but the other effects aren't visible to me but I guess I'm not a make up buff so I wouldn't know! The loose powder is okay, I think I'd prefer one that gives a little more coverage but I guess this isn't for coverage, its just for a nicer 'finish'. Most days I tend to use no.7 'Beautiful Skin BB Cream' which works great for my very dry skin, and means I look more natural.
Burberry Lip Glow, Estee Lauder Lipstick, Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick, Estee Lauder Pure Color High Gloss

-The Burberry 'Tea Rose' lip-gloss smells really nice and the shade is pretty, but I hardly every wear lip-gloss so its a bit of a shame. The Givenchy lipstick from about 3 years ago is still a firm favourite of mine, the bright pink colour is really stunning and I love the branding. My two new Estee Lauder products are being used nearly every day, the lipstick is actually a lot lighter than the image, its 'Boise de Rose' and on top I put on the 'Berry Lush'. I also use my Bare Minerals Pretty Amazing Lipcolour in 'Strength' quite often, I find it stays on for ages and is a flattering shade of red.
Dior 5 Couleurs, Revlon Matte Blush, Eylure Brow Palette

-The Dior eye-shadow set was quite pricey, and for something I have barely used I feel a bit guilty for buying, however it does have 5 colours that you can play around with and if you can put on eye-shadow (I seriously can't) then its well worth it. The Revlon 'Blushing Berry' is a classic I believe, and I prefer this matte finish to all the other glittery shimmery blushes. I never leave the house without filling in my eyebrows with the eylure 'Shape & Shade' palette, I much prefer the more natural effect from powder than the harsh pencils on eyebrows and the 2 colour options lets you blend till you get your right shade! 
Topshop Lipstick 'Wicked'
-Lastly, my recent obsession is this Topshop lipstick in a dark redy, berry colour just so perfect for Autumn!
