My make-up routine this week

Hi Ladies,

This is the products that I will be using this coming short week:

1-Prepping the skin

I will be moisturising my face with this Illuminating Moisture Cream by Superdrug.
It's a very soft shimmery cream very similar to Strobe Liquid by Mac but with a golden shimmer.
Very nice and very flattering.
The best bit..it's only like £2.

2-Foundation
VitaZing by Origins
This was a Duty-free purchase.
I've been using this product since I came back from holidays.
I love it.
It's a cream that comes out grey/white but when you blend it in it matches your skin tone beautifully.
The coverage is very impressive too.
I would say medium coverage.
It has SFP15 and it lasts a fair amount of hours.

3-Eyes
I'm going to be rocking this eyeshadow quad by Maybelline.
It's called Chai Latte


Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner by Maybelline
If I have time I will be lining my eyes and water line with this new gel liner.
I used it twice and I have to say it really works.
I hate the TV ad but the product is really good.
It lasted ages on my waterline and for ever on my lids.

4-Brows
If I can be bothered and if I have time I will do my eyebrows.
I am loving this eyebrow trio + wax.
The colours are very realistic and they have a bit of grey to them so it's easy to match and customise your colour.

5-Cheeks
I'm going to use my 10 by Benefit
The light half is a bit too white for me so I like mixing both of them for a perfect cheek colour.
I get the bronzy look + the glow within.
Love it.

6-Lashes
I'm going to be using my SuperShock Mascara by Avon
The wand looks scary but trust me there is something about this brush that makes your lashes look 5 times thicker!
And it lasts a long time without smudging or flaking.
I totally recommend it and it's less that £4 I believe.

    i literally want every single item u mentioned in this post :) as always ;) i find the ads for maybelline liner super funny, as if someone forced the &#39;international&#39; (!) make up artist to be on the ads:)

    SuperShock is a great mascara! I&#39;ve switched over to SuperMagnify and love it! The VitaZing by Origins looks like a great foundation! Looks like you are going to be rocking some neutral eye looks this week!

    @Maria: Thanks! Accesorise do a very similar product to 10..maybe check it out? And the Gosh brow kit is soo worth it. Love it. Before I wanted brows a go-go by Benefit but I&#39;m sticking to the Gosh one now. X<br /><br />@DesignerSpray: Thanks. The brow kit is actually very good..the three shades are very unique and very realistic. X<br /><br />@m i s s a r c h: LOL...the ads are crap! How are you doing? X<br /><br />@The Peach: Haven&#39;t tried SuperMagnify..maybe next time. Yes...very unlike me but this week will be all neutrals. X
