Go-To Make-Up

Being able to say that I have a "go-to" make-up look is something very new to me. In the past I was something of a make-up floozy, flitting from one foundation to the next but, because I have tried to use so much stuff up this year, I think I have found comfort in having a look that I can rely on for months on end and this is probably my favourite one yet.

I'm going to be so sad when I run out of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. I initially would have filed it away as a meh product (see here for reference!) but, at the urging of Sarah, I revisited it with the Beauty Blender in tow and it's become something of a Holy Grail. I will 100% repurchase but, only after I get my mitts on Dior Star!

This MAC combo of eyeshadows is easily duplicated with other brands but, it's so on-point in terms of tones and textures that I have to recommend them as the full package. To begin with we have my favourite lid shade ever, Ricepaper. In the crease, a touch of Soft Brown with a sort of softened cut-crease thanks to chocolate brown Handwritten. Vanilla finishes to look off as the perfect highlight.

This lip combo is the beauty find of the year as far as I am concerned. MAC Soar (AKA the Kylie Jenner liner) with the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Nude-ist over the top. I rarely say "I'm obsessed" and 100% mean it but, I am definitely 100% obsessed with this duo.

Finally, another go-to is actually a technique. I am brutal at creating winged liner but, love the effect so, to add a wing to my look, I have taken to lining my lower lashline with some Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Cocoa and smudging it out with the Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Kajal in Black Coffee. Instantly elongates and sass-ifies your look without faffing about trying to achieve even wings!
