THE MAKE-UP: SHOPPING MY STASH

]

If you read yesterdays post you will know that I am currently in the process of moving house.
Not only does this entail a huge clearing out process but it also gives me the perfect excuse to have a brutal clear out in my make-up tower.

Seven years worth of products are housed in four drawers and that is not including everything that also lives in this drawer.

After two hours of rediscovering old favourites and swatching cult products I have condensed the contents of four drawers into just one.
With an hour to spare before I headed out for dinner with my friend I thought that I would revisit some of my less used make-up to create this look.



Face: The Maybelline 'Fit Me' foundation has always been one of my favourites since I was introduced to it by my aunt a few years ago before it was realised in the UK. I love the light, blendable texture and medium coverage. The finish reminds me of the Rimmel 'Wake me up' when applied with a Real Techniques buffing brush.

Eyes: I have become a little obsessed with the Cara Delevigne smokey eye, heavy brow and light hair look. Can you tell? I used the Models Own 'smokey' palette mixed with a little of my old favourite shadow 'Green Smoke' by MAC. I used 'Blitz and Glitz' fluidline liner smudging it all along my lower lashline with an angled brush before setting it with a matte black shadow. I also used my L'Oreal 'Double Extend' mascara to buff out my lashes a little. This mascara is great for lengthening.

Lips: I wanted to keep my lips free of gloss or lipstick but I still wanted a subtle tint of colour. After clearing out, I found my ModelCo 'Cheek and Lip' tiny in 'Rosy Red' the super blendable formula distributes a tiny amount of colour to your skin although I feel it is more of a purple tone red than a true, bright red.
