What’s On My Face #4


So Christmas is over, there’s still some turkey lurking in the fridge, chocolate wrappers under the sofa, but I’m now looking forward to the new year… I think 2013 will be a good one! 

Another ‘What’s on My Face’ post and although this isn’t one of my faves I wanted to post it anyway – we can’t have perfect makeup everyday! 

For the base I used NARS Sheer Glow which is an old foundation which I’ve recently fallen back in love with. It’s definitely not sheer, in fact it’s one of the heavier foundations I own. If I want a lighter finish I use my hands and for fuller coverage I use my stippling brush. On my cheeks I used the Jouer bronzer as a contour to warm up my face, the Dior Amber Diamond to highlight my cheekbones and Benefit Coralista for a flush of colour. 

On my eyes I started with my favourite base, Maybelline’s ‘On and On Bronze’ and over the top layered MAC’s Patina which has become one of my favourites. I then used MAC Charcoal Brown in the crease and under the eye. For mascara I’m trying Benefit’s ‘They’re Real’ which was voted number 1 in the UK although I’m still unsure of whether it’s for me or not. 

Another new favourite is the Anastasia Clear Brow Gel, which although makes them a bit crispy, definitely holds them in place! And finally on the lips, a new addition to my collection, Topshop’s ‘Beguiled’. I find applying Topshop lipsticks quite hard and have to use a brush and then pat with my finger, but after all the hard work I was left with a pretty wine colour. 

On my nails is the ‘Vivianna Manicure‘ and I used Leighton Denny ‘Maneater’ and Ciate ‘Ladylike Luxe’ to get the look. I love it and I’m thinking about doing it with black and rose gold next time! 


So a bit vampier than usual, but sometimes I like a change! What do you think of the darker lip?

    I love the mac quad you have created the colors really compliment each other and that topshop lipstick looks very pigmented might have to invest in one. I love these post that you do. Happy holidays xoxox

    I don’t mind crispy brows, but I don’t like it when the clear gel mascara flakes. How is the Anastasia brow gel in that regard? I’m on the market for some new eyebrow taming products.

    I think the makeup look mixed with your hair and nails looks very chic, I am also a huge fan of Nars Sheer Glow :)
    Weird question – do you curl your eyelashes or does the mascara give you that lift?
