I start off with a primer in the former of the Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow* offering to ensure that my base looks glowy and healthy for the get go. I then go in with the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation* if I'm feeling like I need a heavier coverage, but with a natural finish. I particularly like applying this with my Beauty Crush Foundation Brush* to ensure my makeup looks flawless and is applied in a matter of a seconds.
For underneath the eyes, I go for the Huda Beauty Overachiever Concealer* as it brightens and covers my under eye circles whilst remaining in place all day long. For blemishes and scarring on my face, I like to use the Too Faced Born This Way Sculpting Concealer as it's lightweight, blends easily into other formulas and looks super natural too.
To mattify the whole face, I like using the Huda Beauty Easy Bake Loose Powder* which creates a flawless face and minimises pores all in one go. I wouldn't usually say I'm one for baking my under eyes, but this has made it easy and never looks cakey either. For added warmth, I go for the Nars Laguna Bronzer* as it can be used all over and it never looks muddy on my complexion. It can also be used to sculpt the cheeks and define the forehead too.
For highlighter, I've been using the Laura Mercier Indiscrection Face Illuminator as it adds a subtle sheen to the cheeks, but it's the ABH Amrezy Highlighter* that I have to go for when opting for a full face of makeup. It's back in stock now which makes me very happy as it's honestly so dreamy - if you're doubting whether to buy it, I'd definitely recommend investing.
I love experimenting with my eye makeup and the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette* is one of my favourites alongside the Urban Decay Naked Cherry* offering. Sometimes I can't pick just the one, so I mix them both, but honestly the ABH pick is amazing for creating a variety of looks. When I'm going for a full coverage foundation, I like to go a little heavier on the eyes in the form of a smokey eye and then I finish up with the Soap and Glory Supercat Liner*. This paired with the Nars Climax Mascara creates a well put together, volumised and defined look that I'm obsessed with. If I'm feeling paritcuallty jazzy then I tend to line with the Nudestix Golden Rose Rock n Roller* as it's super long lasting and very pretty on the eye too especially if I'm going for a simple eyeshadow on the lid.
Nothing has really changed when it comes to well defined, long lasting brows as the ABH Dip Brow* is still one of my favourites. It's super easy to use although you may need to go in with a light hand at first unless you're used to how a pomade works as you may get more than you bargained for.
To finish the whole look off, I've been using either a classic nude or the Charlotte Tilbury Screen Siren Hollywood Lips* as the red hue is very flattering on and doesn't budge for hours. It can easily be topped up and there's something about a red lipstick that never fails to make me feel sassy.
