It's been so hot recently here in Sweden so I haven't worn any makeup in ages! However, I managed to put some makeup on yesterday even though I was melting. I thought I'd try to incorporate some orange to my look since I never wear orange eyeshadow. This wasn't really that kind of "in-your-face-orange" but quite subtle and made the look a whole lot warmer. Anyway, here's the finished look:
// FACE //
Yves Rocher Youthful Glow Foundation in "Beige 200" MeMeMe Beat the Blues in "Oyster Gold" Benefit "Hoola" Natural Collection Blush in "Peach Melba" Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Volume Gloss in "Rose VIP"
// EYES //
Urban Decay Primer Potion Sleek Au Natural Palette MAC Eyeshadows in "Omega", "Concrete" and "Brown Down" Sleek Ultra Matt V1 Palette Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette Benefit They're Real Mascara
So, yesterday I filmed my second attempt of randomly choosing five eyeshadows and then trying to create a look with them. Just like the first time I got a green shade so I think that the universe is telling me to wear green eyeshadows more often. Anyway, this was the result:
Make Up Store Microshadows in "Smog" and "White" Sleek The Original Palette NYX One Night in Morocco Palette MUA Dusk til Dawn Palette Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner IsaDora Precision Mascara Benefit "Dandelion" and "Hoola" Sleek Face Contour Kit in "Light" Clinique Lipstick in "Soft Bloom"
This little beauty has been one of my most used products this summer. It's one of those white-ish creams that turns into a skin colour when you rub it in. This doesn't give me any coverage whatsoever but this summer I haven't really felt the need for that (thank you Jesus!!!) so this has really been perfect. It makes my skin look all lovely and glowy, it adds a bit of colour so that my face matches the rest of my body and it contains SPF 15. I bought two of these travel sized tubes for about £8 each, and they do last a long time!
So if you're on the market for something that will just even out your skin a tiny bit, give you some glow and also protect your skin from the sun, I would highly recommend this one!
