Current make up bag favourites


    It's Bank holiday weekend here in the UK and the sun is out which is both refreshing and very welcome. I thought I would show you some make up items I am really enjoying at the moment for the warmer weather. There is a mix of creams and powder formulas as I like to keep things varied.

    Starting with my base I am still very much enjoying the Ren Satin perfection BB cream, I bought this last summer and don't have much left, REN have thankfully changed the packaging for a squeezy tube as I had problems with my pump so I am looking forward to repurchasing this again now. This comes out as a scary looking orange cream but the colour adaptive technology is very clever and after a couple of minutes it settles down and matches to your skin tone, I love the light texture and dewy but not shiny finish, full review here

    Next up is eyes and I have been testing these lovely eye shadows* from NATorigin, for those of you who read my blog regularly you will know that I love the brand and I am big fan of their mascara and lipsticks. These eye shadows didn't disappoint and are really pretty, slightly shimmery with a nice soft finish perfect for a soft summery look, I will review these fully with swatches very soon. Whilst I am trying to inject some colour in to my choices I am still very much a neutrals girl at heart and this duo from Lily Lolo (review) is still a firm favourite for a neutral eye, I have also added this little sample of W3LL People eye shadow to my list of favourite things, a sparkly champagne colour I received this as a sample in an order and it has wet my appetite for more of their products. To add some definition I have been using this purple Kohl pencil from Terre D'oc as a nice alternative to brown and black. Lastly for eye's I am trying out the Essential care mascara, another brand that get's a fair few mentions and that I like a lot, so far so good with this mascara, it is still early days but it gives a very pretty natural look which manages to stay put, it doesn't quite give me as much volume as I would like for my lashes but as an everyday mascara it is very nice and the staying power is impressive. 

   For my cheeks and lips I am enjoying pinks, RMS Lip2cheek in smile (review) is a firm favourite and such a pretty colour, a corally pink which is very wearable and brightens your face. I am big fan of Lily Lolo's blushes and this one is called candy girl* and is a perfect bright, fresh slightly blue toned pink, if used with a light hand gives the prettiest flush of colour and lasts all day, I have been loving this one lately. For lips I think Kjaer Weis Romance* (review) is one of my favourite all time colours, a sheer wash of colour that is very wearable if you are not confident with a bold lip, these are comfortable to wear and that packaging... well it's just stunning!
