Sometimes I get a bit stuck in a rut when it comes to makeup. With travelling between home, and my boyfriend’s house constantly I rely heavily on whatever happens to be in my makeup bag. I thought it was about time I switched things up, so I had a root through my makeup and I’ve fallen back in love with some golden oldies!
The Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder was all the rage when I first started blogging. I’ve been having trouble with my t-zone getting oily recently so this powder has done the trick for me. It’s a very light weight powder, yet it still does a great job of controlling oil. I hate that cakey powder feeling that comes with mattifying products, but the Laura Mercier powder really solves that issue for me.
I went through a real phase a couple of years ago of investing in lots of Makeup Geek shadows, but then they sadly sank to the bottom of my makeup pile. Considering each pan costs £5, they are high quality and easy to blend. I’ve been enjoying wearing the shades latte and cocoa bear, and the highlight shade Shimma Shimma will always be a favourite of mine! I’ve made it my mission to get some wear from all of my MUG shades over the next couple of months.
Now that I’m wearing concealer on a daily basis I’ve been using my ZOEVA Bamboo Face Shape Brush on the daily. This is a small and nifty buffing brush which blends concealer into the skin flawlessly. It’s the perfect size for working on areas around the nose and under the eyes. I’ve not picked up any ZOEVA brushes in a while so this has inspired me to invest in some more.
I wanted to end with a real blogger classic – MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle. When I started my blog in 2015 I think this was the first highlight I ever tried. It’s got a beautiful almost peach-champagne shimmer without being too in your face, which makes it very wearable. I think Soft & Gentle is just one of those products that I’ll always go back to!
I do love rediscovering products I used to love, so I may try make this more of a habit.
