Marie Claire magazine August edition also have a lovely freebie which I have purchased, there is a choice of two full size Ciaté Lip glosses colours are Ibiza which is a lovely hot pink and the other is called St Bart’s which is a nice nude colour both are valued at £9 which is a great saving being as the magazine is priced at £3.60 and most lip glosses are over £5.00! I will say that I had to go to a lot of stores before I found the pink one though!!

7. Playboy Perfect pair eye brow pencil in brunette, awesome product bought from Ebay so would come in a variety of prices
8. Barbara Daly matte perfection pressed powder in fair £5.75
9. N.Y.C Color Wheel Face Mosaic Bronze Glow £2.99 this is a nice bronzing powder for such a bargain price! stocked by Superdrug.
10. Urban Decay Ammo eye palette £25.00 from House of Fraser I used the green colour mildew for the socket and polyester bride for the inside of the eye to give a brighter look.
11. Shu Uemura eyelash curlers, slanted small brush to apply the eyeshadow underneath the eye and the larger brush to blend into the eye socket, I use a large blusher brush to apply the bronzing powder all over the face, its always best to keep a bronzing brush and blusher brush separate as you want to keep colours neat.

Hot new shade from Bourjois So Laque! ultra shine Orange creation 42 to jazz up the nails very on trend £5.99

Today's makeup look 30/07/11

I have decided to do a daily blog in a bid to use all the makeup that I have accumulated as I have got stuck in a makeup rut by using the same colours every day I also wear a black uniform to work so I look pretty dull!
The above picture is before with no makeup
and below is after my makeover

The above picture shows all the makeup I used to create the look

1. Max Factor Miracle Touch Liquid Illusion Foundation Creamy Ivory 40 £12.99 this foundation comes with a sponge applicator and has great creamy coverage as I have enlarged pores this really does the job.

2. Barbara Daly matte perfection pressed powder in fair £5.75, this is the best pressed powder I have ever used and was always sold out from Tesco when I tried to get a replacement.

3. Barry M blusher colour Rose £4.59, this blusher is quite strong so to not look like a dolly lightley dust the apples of your cheeks.

4. Barry M Trio Eyeshadow colour smokey seduction £5.99, lovely and easy to blend.

5. Barry M Liquid eyeliner in black £4.79 these eyeliners are the only ones I use and they come in variety of great colours.

6. Vaseline in rose £1.99, I used this instead of lip gloss today as it gave a nice natural look.

7. Clinique high impact mascara in black, this was a sample I won and I love it!

8. Eyelash curler and various makeup brushes with slant and normal ends the secret is to blend when applying eyeshadow and blusher.
