I took this WOMF before I went away and from what I can remember, my heating had broken and my room was freezing. I wanted to experiment a bit, but I also wanted to hurry up and get downstairs to where it was warmer. 

I’ve been addicted to the Laura Mercier primer for adding extra glow and it mixed really well with the NARS tinted moisturiser, which I used in the lightest shade. I added the tiniest amount of NARS Miss Liberty which is a bit too glittery for me, but a little bit is really nice. On my cheeks, an old drugstore favourite, The Natural Collection Peach Melba blush which is the perfect peach. 

For my eyes I decided to add a bit of colour, using MAC Cranberry all over the lid and then MAC Woodwinked on top. Cranberry alone made my eyes look a little too red, so Woodwinked helped tone it down and make me look less ill. I then used my favourite MAC Club under the eye and a bit in the crease. The green in Club only really comes out when you layer it all over the lid, otherwise it’s a nice smokey brown. After the mascara was applied I felt a bit overly made up and had quite dark eyes so I opened them up a bit using Rimmel’s nude eyeliner in the waterline and inner tear duct area. 

Because of the heavy eyes, I left my lips neutral just using a bit of Melvita’s Honey Lips Gloss Balm which brings back childhood memories of drinking warm milk and honey when I was homesick staying at a friend’s house. It tastes yummy, looks like a gloss and feels like a nourishing lip balm. 

So that’s that. What do you think?

    I have Rimmel’s Nude Eyeliner and love it, much less harsh than white. The Peach Melba blush looks lovely, might have to swatch this next time I’m in Boots.

    I love the idea of using a nude liner to stop eyes looking too heavily made up, I’ll have to try that one!

  26. Melissa B says:

    That check color is so very pretty. I’m in love with it. I wish I could find that brand here in the states…. I’m off to look for it!

  27. That is a gorgeous gloss — I like anything with Honey in it (or its name)

  28. Louise says:

    The combination of MAC’s Cranberry w/Woodwinked looks stunning on you! That’s a really good idea to combine a neutral w/a more vibrant color to tone it down and make it slightly more wearable. Might have to give this a try!

    Cranberry paired with Woodwinked looks great on you! The honey gloss sounds delicious. I do like honey in beauty products!

  30. while I like the result the benefit mascara gives it’s an absolute nightmare to take off and puts me off using it on a daily basis. I already have woodwinked and have always been tempted by cranberry and seeing it on you makes me want it even more to try this look.

    I love cranberry but also feel like it can make my eyes look sick. Good tip layering a brown on top of it!

  38. Dest Aus says:

    Auuwwhhh..love that cranberry from MAC. It looks like fresh warm cinnamon on her eyelids…the and look is so festive in itself!


  39. Lauren says:

    You look lovely! I love the NARS tinted moisturizer.

    Great tip on using the nude eyeliner to tone down too dark eyes. I’ve never thought to use it that way.


  40. Zandra May says:

    Really like the copper eyes with the natural lips, great make-up look! X


  41. Beth Bradley says:

    Beautiful look Lily, so natural!

  42. Hannah Cole says:

    Such a lovely look. I love how bold the Cranberry looks on your eyes. I find using a black matte eyeshadow or gel eyeliner underneath really brings out the colour!


  43. What do you think of the even better eyes? I like it but I find it makes my make up slide because it’s quite silky. What do you think? x x
