This Month I'm Loving.... Make-Up

7 March 2013

If I wasn't a mum/foodie blogger I'd definitely be a beauty blogger. I've always loved make up. When I discovered make-up at the age of 14, I used to get in trouble for wearing it at school.  Did you know I used to be a make up artist too? Yes I did, and I loved it.

Since the darlings came along, my make up obsession has been taking a bit of a break. Until now. I read lots of beauty blogs and get serious make-up envy for all the gorgeous products they have. So I've recently treated myself to a few new items. Well more than a few actually!  
I've wanted this for soooo long. Every beauty blogger has one. I spend way too much time watching video tutorials of ways to apply different combinations of the eye colours. Now I've got one... my life is complete.

MUA Undress Me Palette
This is a so-called dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. But for £4 is it such a brilliant alternative if you don't want to spend big bucks on the original.

1. MUA Eye Primer
Another fab inexpensive product. I dab a couple of spots onto my eyelids and blend with my foundation brush. It seems to make my eye make up last longer. 
OMG this is incredible! It makes your skin feel like the most delicate silk. You smooth it over your face before applying foundation and it smooths and 'perfects' your skin and helps your make up stay put for longer. Love it.
I use this to conceal the dark circles under my eyes, which are getting worse by the day {note to self: go to bed earlier} For me it works better than YSL Touche Eclat which I've used for years but recently seems to have stopped working for me.

I'm loving The Body Shop at the moment. I really needed some new lip colours and they were on offer buy one get the second half price. I went for shade 01 cheeky coral and 02 shell pink which are both subtle sheer colours that give a lovely dewey coverage.

A girl can never have too many lip balms right? So I got 3... one for home, one for work and one for my bag! They make my lips lovely and soft and have a light tint of colour and they smell and taste gorgeous.

The Body Shop vitamin E sink in mask
I know this isn't make-up but I wanted to share this gorgeous skin care product too. I have quite dry skin and the Vitamin E skincare range is amazing at keeping it hydrated. I tried this as soon as I got it and my skin felt so nourished and soft afterwards. My skin needs a bit of TLC so I've just ordered a few more of the Vitamin E products.
Do you love make-up or rarely wear it? What are your must-have make-up products?
