This months beauty bag is possibly one of my favourite combinations yet with lots of copper, brown and coffee colour palettes to play with.
I have been using an old favourite and I must add, old faithful foundation, 'Lasting Perfection' by Collection is possibly the best foundation I have ever used and I find it hard to beat. I have talked about it a lot of over the years here on GGMH however, if you are looking for a medium to full build-able coverage formula with seriously lasting power than I highly recommend this foundation.
To contour, I have been using another old favourite the Bourjois 'Delice de Poudre' aka 'The chocolate box bronzer.' The pigment of this bronzer has the perfect opaqueness to sculpt the cheekbones without too much of an orange pigment. I have been accentuating my cheeks with a pop of blusher also, a product that I am really hit or miss with. 'Glossy Rosewood' is an old school blush by Krylon for Glossybox and the dusky pink pigment constitutes the perfect springtime pinch of pink.
On my eyelids I have been using the 'On and On Bronze' colour tattoo by Maybelline. The lasting power of this product is seriously impressive. The cream, pigmented formula glides onto the eyelids beautifully and can be blended with other eyeshadows to create a seriously smokey eye.
I am still loving the look that brown liner achieves, especially against lighter eyes. The brown chocolate shade by Collection is made up of a gel based formula that blends beautifully on the upper and lower lash lines as well as sitting comfortably on the tight line and waterline. I finish off my eye make-up with a few lashings of my old favourite, Kate Moss - 'Rockin' Curves' mascara by Rimmel.
To complete the look I apply a generous amount of the cult 90's lippy 'Coffee Shimmer' also by Rimmel. The formula is super moisturising and the chocolate brown, plum undertoned shade complements all skin tones.
