This week has consisted of nothing really, I'm finished with university for Easter so I've been working, going to the gym and eating too much food. Pretty standard. I have been trying out of a lot of new products, including a few new Real Technique brushes and some Neal's Yard Remedies products.
Puffy eyes and dark circles? I've got the eye cream for you. Origins GinZing eye cream has saved me looking like a zombie for a while now. It's a pinky pearlescent cream, which means that the pearl undertones will reflect light once you've applied it! The past few weeks have been pretty hectic for me which has caused a lack of sleep so my eyes have been quite puffy, so I apply this about half an hour before applying make up and by that, they have decreased dramatically.
I've added a few MAC eyeshadows to my collection, one of them being Satin Taupe which is in the duo shadow palette. I've loved it since seeing it featured on many bloggers & vloggers, plus I bought it for my sister for Christmas and knew that I also had to own it. I added All That Glitters to this dup as well as next week I've heading back up north for a little break and I think these two shades can create some beautiful looks.
Blusher, a product I haven't tried to master. I naturally have very rosy cheeks and many people think I wear blusher every day and in all of my previous photographs, I've never worn blusher! I've lusted after the NARS blushes for months now but I can't justify paying that much for something I may not wear. That is where this Sleek Rose Gold blush comes in, which is also a very close dupe to NARS Orgasm. It's a deep rose pink shade with gold shimmer running through it. I apply it to the tops of my non-existent cheekbones as I feel that it slims my face down rather than putting on the apples of my cheeks.
I've found the perfect brush to apply highlighter to the tops of my cheekbones with, which is the Real Technique Expert Face Brush*. Think Buffing Brush but shorter bristles and a lot denser. I haven't tried using it for foundation yet as I feel it would create a heavy coverage which I don't like, so for now, this is how I'm using it.
