I realised that I haven’t taken a proper makeup selfie in a while and finally, today I had the time to sit down, put on some of my recent makeup favourites and take a photo (all while Carmelo was impatiently yelling at me to tell me that we’re going to be late for meeting up with some friends, of course).
In this makeup look I’m wearing quite a few products that I haven’t mentioned here and they really do deserve some spotlight. In this post I’m just going to mention some of the products that I’m currently really excited about 🙂
For foundation I’m using the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation. I got this back in Gibraltar last month and I’m absolutely loving it. High coverage, not cakey and it lasts all day. I’ve tried samples of this foundation before and I’ve always loved it. I always used to wear the Revlon Colorstay foundation but I think this one is very slightly better. The only drawback with this foundation is that it doesn’t come with a pump.
Now as for setting powder, I never thought it would be possible to have a favourite setting powder, and I never thought that a setting powder could make so much of a difference to my life. I’ve been using the RCMA no colour powder and honestly, this powder is worth ALL of the hype! It’s very finely milled, not drying and sooo perfect in every way. It makes my skin look poreless and it sets my makeup to make it last all day. This is one truly spectacular powder that everybody needs.
Another favourite I’m wearing here, and I’ve been wearing quite a lot since I got it for Xmas, is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. This is another makeup item that caught me by surprise. I had been seeing many reviews about it and many makeup looks so when Carmelo’s sister, Sole, gave me the Modern Renaissance palette for Xmas (she also gave me the RCMA powder <3 ) I was really excited to try it out. This is also an other product that’s all it’s hyped up to be. The colours are gorgeous, it’s quite versatile and I can’t get enough of it!
Another product worth mentioning are the false lashes that I’m wearing. These are the Belle Lash SHER lashes. They’re very natural looking, light weight and easy to wear. I used my Essence lash glue with these and I didn’t feel them all night and they stayed on. I love these!
