I’ve never been really into makeup, but I’m turning 25 in July (eek) and I realise that my crazy-makeup-looks-chic-and-not-scary days are numbered, so I’ve decided to start experimenting with what my boyfriend calls “facepaint”.
First off, I’m posting what my “normal” face looks like, with minimal photoshopping (contrast adjustments, cropping etc.). Now, I love my sleep way more than the average person, so I try to keep it simple and do most of my makeup on my hour-long commute (yeah, I’m one of those girls, sorry).
This is what I use – a lot of it’s ratty from rolling around in my handbag, sorry!
Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in No. 21 (with a little No. 23 mixed in during summer)
Maybelline Shine Free Loose Powder in Light
Really ancient Clinique blush in Extra Clover (soooo pigmented, when did blushes get lame and spineless? I’ve been using it daily for the past three years and I haven’t even hit the bottom of the pan)
Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer in Noir
Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain (old limited edition) in Very Berry
Nivea Repair and Protection lip balm
Get ready for some crazy warpaint soon! 🙂
