Makeup I'm currently loving and using....

I want to be one of those girls who's loyal to a particular skincare brand and follows the steps religiously but I don't think it's ever going to happen.

It's the same with make up: I often decide that I have finally found the best mascara/foundation/eyeliner brush that has ever existed and swear to be faithful to it forever more until I see a great (completely photoshopped) advert of some very beautiful model with flawless skin and big fat lashes and realise that's the product I need to urgently get my hands on.

But anyhoo, this is what I'm swearing by at the moment:

Foundation: Chanel Vitalumiere - love the lightness and how you can build coverage, plus it lasts.

Concealer: skin is pretty good at the moment but worshiping as always at the altar of Bobbi Brown eye brightener for under eye circles.

Powder: keeping most of my face powder free but am using a touch of Laura Mercier Mineral Powder across my nose.

Brows: Absolutely love the Armani Eyebrow pencil in Blond - it's a really good ashy colour, no redness in it and it lasts.

Cheeks: Bobbi Brown Blusher in Blushed - has crazy levels of pigment like all BB products so I only use a tiny amount on the apples of my cheeks.

Liner: I'm actually using a Smashbox Eyeliner brush (amazing!) wet with Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in forest, really close along my upper lash line.

(if I'm feeling a little ropey I'm also popping a bit of taupe Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in my crease)

Lashes: Well clearly I'm obsessed with mascara so I'm using Cover Girl Lashblast for volume which I got on-line from the US and Armani Maestro Obsidian for definition.

And that's me. x x x
