FOTD: Shake It Up, Shake It Up

For one reason or another, life in my make-up bag hasn't been stable for a while. There's been lots of products coming in and out, depending on the weather and mostly, on my mood.

Recently I've been hungering for a tinted moisturiser. The warmth really does bring that out in people! I have a few BB creams, but the more I use them, the more I realise how heavy they actually are (and not my shade!). I have the MAC Moisture Tint which I love, but it's slightly dark for me. Is a Laura Mercier purchase on the cards? Or perhaps even Chantecaille given it's my birthday month.. we shall see!

Anyway, there's been a recent shake-up in the ol' make-up bag that I've stuck to for.. a few days now? Believe it or not, that's a record these past few weeks!

The products I've shaken up are above. I wanted to switch from the cool tones of NARS Douceur to something still muted and dusty, but warm and Liz Earle's Healthy Glow Powder Blush in Nude 03 is absolutely perfect for that. I've also ditched thick liner for something slightly more flexible, which lets me do precise single lines or a winged look like above, and that's the finest liner I've ever used - DHC Liquid Eyeliner EX. Since MAC's Faerie Glen is not only on its last legs, but slightly concealer lips for me now, I've been opting for a muted pink with Rimmel's Kate Moss Lipstick in 03. As for foundation, the oils are back! So instead of a hydrating liquid, I've been going for something light (to satisfy the tinted moisturiser cravings!) but mattifying, and that's the BareMinerals Matte Foundation in Golden Medium. I've been buffing this on with the Purminerals Chisel Make Up Brush, which is soft, dense and easy to control.

Other than that, I've been using the same old!

Have you been switching up your make-up?


  1. I'm loving mineral make-up in warmer weather! Works a treat! I've been wearing Dior Nude BB cream which is a very light version of the BB cream, really nice :-)
