WHAT'S ON MY FACE #7

Monday, 21 January 2013


This WOMF post was taken on a lazy Sunday. I had a lot of things to do at home, so I took the opportunity to try a few makeup bits so if they were a disaster it wouldn't matter as I'd be at home! 

For my base I tried out Guerlain's Parure de Lumiere foundation, which is a new one to me. It claims to be a light diffusing and moisture infusion foundation, which are both qualities I look for in a foundation. It applied really easily with either fingers or a brush and definitely felt very sheer and lightweight. It's hard to tell how 'light diffusing' it is, but now looking at the photos of this post, I can see that it did catch the light in all the right places. The colour match is perfect for me and I'm looking forward to wearing this more and seeing how it goes. 

I warmed up my face with my Jouer bronzer and then for a change I used my Benefit Hervana blush, which doubles up as a highlighter. I find this blush really easy to use and it's hard to over do it, although the colours can be a little too cool toned for me. For my eyes I just used a wash of 'Deeper' from the Urban Decay 'Dangerous' palette with a bit of MAC's Buried Treasure eyeliner on the lash line. I absolutely love this eyeshadow, it's a pretty bronze and isn't too shimmery. The eyeliner is an old favourite of mine, a brown/black with gold flex, and it makes the perfect liner. I also tried out a sample of the Fresh Supernova mascara and so far I'm impressed! It has quite a big brush and gave my lashes quite a lot of volume. 

I left my lips and just added some Pommade Divine, as you can probably see they were a bit sore. I also spritzed on a bit of my Jo Malone Lime Basil & Mandarin sample, but I immediately regretted that decision. It's definitely not my kind of scent, but it's one of their most successful, so maybe try it for yourself. 

So what do you think of today's face?

  21. By far my favourite foundation on you and you look flawless with everything else! I'm green with envy ;) I got YSL's Touche Eclat Foundation for Xmas and now I am thinking it is a foundation for the night and not for a whole day since my face gets oily with it on after awhile. The Bourjois Finishing Powder helps though.

  28. Gorgeous look! I've heard so much buzz on Jouer products, particularly the bronzer but I wish they had better packaging! I know that's very superficial of me but their packaging is just so plain and the snap and click aspect just reminds me of tupperware containers. And tupperware is just not glamourous. :)
