September Make Up Bag

September MakeUp 1

 

Here’s a look at what’s been inside my make up bag for september. September was the month that I really upped the glow. I usually only wear highlighter in the evenings but with the cooler weather and my skin looking a little flat, I’ve started wearing my MAC Soft and Gentle MSF everyday.

The rest of my face is really simple and quick! For my base I am still obsessed with L’Oreal True Match in W3, sometimes I wear the Bobbi Brown Stick foundation in 2.5 when I want something a little heavier. For concealer my trust Maybelline Fit me concealer is still with me. I use the shade 15. For powder I am using MAC Mineralise┬áSkin finish in Medium to set my make up. I don’t think my contour will ever change, yep it’s still MAC Harmony blush.

For brows, I’ve dipping in and out of pencil V powder but powder has one this month I just love the natural look it leaves. I use a MAC 266 to apply it and Maybelline Brown Gel to set my brows in place.

For eyes, I’ve kept it really natural and just wearing a lot of mascara. On my top lashes I use L’Oreal Telescopic Waterproof and for my bottom lashes I’ve been using L’Oreal Miss Manga Waterproof mascara.

What was your favourite make up item this month?

What’s on my Face #1

Usually I don’t do this type of post, I don’t really like to have my face spread across my website! Strangely! But I thought I would share with you my favorite make-up look.

For my base I am wearing Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk in shade 5, on top of that I have MAC Blot Powder to mattify my skin in the T-zone area. For contour I am using MAC Harmony! Quelle Surprise, and a new addition to my collection MAC Soft and Gentle Highlighter.

On my brows, I have MAC Brow pencil in Lingering and for mascara, Lancome Hypnose!

So my base and eyes are fairly basic! but I love this look because the lips are the strong point! Although I am always worried of it smudging but it hasn’t yet. The lipstick I am wearing is MAC ┬áPrivate Party. This was a limited edition lipstick but MAC Rebel is very similar!

What do you think of this look? Would you wear it?

I was never really one for highlighters, I just never felt like I could see them on my skin. So i thought they were a waste of money.
I have tried Benefits Sun Beam and although it did give a slight sheen, I hated the consistency when I was applying it. I felt that it removed half of my foundation that I then had to fix.
So one day when I was in MAC, I tired the MSF in Soft and Gentle. The girls are always so lovely in MAC and will always help you out and teach you how to use it. This is one thing I love about MAC.

At first when she brought out this highlighter, I thought it was going to enhance my redness but to my surprise it left a lovely golden highlight as you can see in the swatch. As this highlight’s shimmer is smooth, you aren’t left with chunky bits of glitter on your face.

I would recommend this highlight to anyone who is a highlighting noob like I am. It really is gorgeous and I don’t leave the house without it.
