Considering I don't change my make-up routine often enough to warrant day-to-day posts, I thought I'd begin a mini series showing what my 'make-up of the moment' is on a monthly basis. (I use the word monthly very loosely though, as I know how terrible I am at keeping to a schedule…!)
Throughout January and the start of February I've kept to quite a neutral palette of nude lips and a peachy blush, while focusing more on giving my eyes the attention with a smoky look. I've also ventured out of my kohl eye pencil comfort zone and thrown myself head first into the world of liquid eyeliners - If anyone out there has a steady hand they'd like to lend me it would be much appreciated!
BASE: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum (51 Vanilla) // Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (1 Fair) // Rimmel Stay Matte Powder (OO1 Translucent)
COLOUR: MUA Blusher (Shade 4) // Topshop Crescent Moon Highlighter
EYES: Revlon Colour Stay Eyeshadow Palette (525 Siren) // Rimmel Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner (OO1 Black) // Benefit They're Real Mascara // AVON Glimmerstick Brow Definer (Blonde)
LIPS: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss (Super Natural)
The Rimmel Liquid Eyeliner is a relatively new purchase of mine, and after trying and testing it a few times I'm a little bit disappointed, and definitely wouldn't repurchase it. It's definitely worth paying the extra £2 for my beloved Soap & Glory Supercat Liner!
In other (quite exciting) news, I recently did a guest post for the lovely author Lindsey Kelk on her website, which you can see here. I spent my teenage years reading her 'I Heart' series, so the fact that she has not only recognised my blog but actually used my review, makes the 16 year old Leanne in me very happy indeed!
After a bit of a dodgy start to the year I now have a lot planned for my blog in 2014, so make sure you stick around. What is your make-up product of the moment? Let me know!
