The weekend face

Regardless of what I’m doing on the weekend I like to mix up my makeup and do something different or try out some products I haven’t used in a while. Considering the weekend just gone was quite warm I wanted to go for a neutral look and just keep it looking quite fresh. For my base I went in with my Mac Studio Fix Fluid foundation but used only a small amount as all I wanted to do was even out my skin. Considering I’ve had quite a few good skin days, this foundation has been really good for the warmer days as it really does stay put. I covered up any dark circles and blemishes with my Nars Radiant creamy concealer which I haven’t stopped using since the day I got it. I works really well under the eyes because it doesn’t crease at all but also covers any minor blemishes really well.

On my eyes I kept it really simple and used the Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and On Bronze which has been one of my all time favourite eye products. It works really well by itself giving a lovely bronzed look but also as a base for other shadows. I finished my eyes with the Dior Mascara I got in a Christmas collection. My brows got the usual treatment using the Anastasia Brow Pomade, I really don’t venture out into other brow products as this is just perfect for me. For the rest of my face I countered with the Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze and Glow which is a staple in my makeup collection and I very rarely use anything else. I also added a bit of the highlight powder on the high points of my face and the inner corners of my eyes just to make them look a little more awake.

I decided to combine the Urban Decay Naked Flushed blush palette and the Mac Plum foolery blush to add some colour onto the cheeks. I also used the highlighter in the palette and ran this under my lash line just to finish of the eyes. I am well and truly obsessed with the Maybelline Color Drama for lips. I can happily say I would reach for these over my Nars ones and if you’re looking for a great lip product on a budget these are very much worth it. I didn’t want too much colour on the lips so I decided to really blend this into my lips just to leave a slight stain. And that’s my weekend face done! It’s a really simple fresh look which I actually think would be great for work too. It gives a nice natural glow and of course you can mix up the lipstick if you fancy something al little brighter.
