I know I shared my daily make up favourites not too long ago but I recently got a couple of new concealers and wanted to share them with you. I got the miniatures to test them out before committing to the full sized ones.
First up is the bye bye under eye from IT cosmetics, a little goes a long way with this product. So far I’m liking it, it is a little thick but covers my dark bags nicely so I’m pleased with it but think I should have got a lighter shade. Back in London I tested it out and brought the same shade that the make-up artist used on me but I’m thinking the slightly lighter one would be better for my skint tone. I also picked ups this Nars concealer, I’m prone to getting spots on my jaw line and this has been helping cover them up. I’m also trialing some more skincare so will report back on how I get on, oh and I’m photographing my skin to document the journey. Fingers crossed it continues to clear up, those recurring pesky jawline spots!
Until my jawline clears up I’m wearing the Nars concealer under my IT cosmetics CC cream. I’m not one for heavy foundation this combination does the trick for me. I like to have full coverage but don’t like having clogged up skin, which easily happens whenever foundation is used. Thats why I love the IT cosmetics CC cream plus it gives me a dewy glow and what’s not to love about that. If you’ve followed for a while you’ll know I’m basic and love a red lip, occasionally ill do a flick of eyeliner, I’m not the best at it so often don’t even bother with eyeshadows but recently I’m really into wearing Bumpy ride Nars blusher as eyeshadow. Its the perfect peachy pink for my lids and I’m loving it. I found the shade was too light for my cheeks, its nice to have another use for it! Torrid is my go too for cheeks. I’d love to be a bronzed girl but it just ain’t my thing, I have pale skin and have learnt to embrace it.
