Hope you are all making the most out of this Bank Holiday Weekend! I have myself had a rather eventful one myself and feels like I'm on cloud 9!
I'm not sure if I've done a post on my face but I have a couple of new additions which I have been loving and would love to share it with you all, so let's get on with it shall we...
|Liz Earle Foundation | Signature Foundation £21|
|The three newly boxed foundations and my two old ones.|
|04 Almond | 03 Nude | 02 Ivory|
First up is of course my Liz Earle foundation! I have always mixed shade 02 and 04 to create my own shade, but it was only recently when I was about to re-purchase the same shades that I realized they did a shade between the two. I always thought the shade in between was made for skin tones with pink undertones BUT turns out it was for warmer undertones. I was too chicken to just order the new shade so I ordered my two regular shades as well. Logic behind this was, I could get tanned and might need to add a darker shade to shade 03, and if not, then I can always use the darker shade to contour and the lighter one to highlight. Or just use it like I have been doing in the past. It's a win win situation all round!
The middle shade is actually pretty accurate shade for me, it is a little off but once it settles on my face, the color tends to adapt to my natural skin color.
|Bourjois Paris | Maxi Delight Bronzer £8.99|
Next up is this bronzer. I literally picked it up because it was the last bronzer left on the bourjois counter at boots. There was also the chocolate ones but I wasn't entirely convince by the smell or cardboard packaging so I opted for this one instead. It has a very slight shimmer and adds that little glow to my face. I use this to add a subtle contour to define my cheekbones. A little goes a long way with this product! I have been using it for about a month now and it still looks brand new, the little design that came with it is un-noticeably touched.
I didn't really examine this bronzer when I was at boots BUT thankfully it is made for olive/tanned skin! It is just perfect for me, I love it so much!
|There seems to be a pixel glitch in the right photo around my lips, it is not because I have a lot of foundation on in that area as you can see in the photo on the left... IT IS BUGGING ME SO MUCH!|
and what better way to finish the post with more #selfies!
Hope you've enjoyed this post! Let me know what you think in the comments ;)
Until next time,
*I always use my smashbox primer before applying foundation, and my bourjois healthy balance matter powder to finish but did not give it a mention in this post as they are not a new addition*
