i’ve been using this foundation for years, a bottle lasts me about 6 months with daily use which i think is good value for money. i’m literally the palest shade they have which is pretty ridiculous. i used to want to try chanel but it would mean my face would be darker so i decided against it. pale and interesting is a good thing!
after trying a million concealers for my hideous dark circles, erase paste sort of does the job. it’s not perfect but it’s the best i’ve tried so far.
and to finish my face (though i often forget) i use mac pressed powder, i accidentally bought the mineralize one last time and now i’m torn between the two…
blushes left to right – mac dame, mac bone/beige contouring, mac peaches (£17.00)
i tend to go for more subtle blushers, as i hate the overdone barbie look when people go overboard. so either a soft pink or a soft peach, sometimes blended together when i want a little bit more colour. the contouring kit i have isn’t actually from the dsquared collection, they released them ages ago for a limited time, i hope mine never runs out.
i used to use mac’s fluidline in blacktrack (£13.50) all of the time until it ran out and i was skint so i had to resort to rimmel’s exaggerate liquid eyeliner (£4.49), it’s good at making the cat eye flick of my eyeliner (which is the style i wear every day) more precise. i’d recommend it for those who don’t do mac’s high prices.
i also use dior diorshow mascara, which is the best mascara i have ever bought
for a cleanser i just use some rubbish neutrogena one at the moment until i can buy my clarins one again. but for moisturiser i use neals yard almond moisturiser (£17.85), it’s so good. it smells a little strong at first, as with most natural products, but you soon get used to it and it’s a wonderful formula.
i’m a strong believer in taking care of your skin so i try to buy good products at prices that i deem reasonable. though i’d love to try that creme de la mer one, but at £94 for 30ml i think i’ll leave it!
i’ve posted quite a lot of things here and, as i’ve been sat around in my pajamas procrastinating whether i should write my essay or not for the entire day, i’m starting to feel that i should get off my butt and get ready.
i might do that orrr i might not bother, give me an hour and i’ll see how i feel…
