When I'm getting ready for night out (the Zoella Beauty launch in this case) I usually get out the big players and give my face a bit of extra special treatment. On this particular day I realised that I used a collection of really rather wonderful products, so let me give you a run through...
I've recently been testing out the new Burberry Fresh glow Fluid Foundation and I really like it. It's nothing new and exciting in terms of texture, but it applies just how I like it and sits on the skin without looking at all heavy. It's lightweight, slightly dewy and just gives an easy, everyday fresh look to the skin.
To add to the dewiness of the foundation I put on a light dusting of Charlotte Tilbury's Film Star Bronze & Glow. The contour shade is dark enough to show up on the skin, but light enough that you can play around and blend it easily to achieve a natural shadow. The highlighter reminds me of the Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder, soft and buttery and catches the light in all the right places. The packaging for this product is to die for, it feels like a collectable!
For my eyes I went for a Tom Ford double whammy! The Tom Ford Cognac Sable eyeshadow quad is beautiful and filled with warm toned, rusty browns. It's very similar to Charlotte Tilbury's Dolce Vita (as she created this with Tom Ford) but I prefer the warmer tones in this one. Three rich, slightly shimmery shadows and one highly pigmented glitter that I like to lightly apply with my ring finger. To intensify the eye I also used my favourite eyeliner from Tom Ford, the Eye Defining Pen. I applied a slightly thicker line than I usually do and both the shadow and liner stayed intact all night.
I love finding a beauty bargain, don't get me wrong... but really there's nothing better than a bit of luxury makeup to cheer you up.
