Christel and Camille have started a series on their blog called Everyday Face, and today it’s my turn to share mine. Over on Makeupper I’m talking skincare, and here on Hyacinth Girl I’ll be sharing the products I used in the finished look, which is also the look above, and is also the look I’m wearing at work nine times out of ten lately.
First of all, here I am post-shower and post-skincare, but pre-makeup and pre-blowdry. To be honest, I don’t usually wash my hair in the mornings because I don’t have time to dry it, but I took the photos for this (correction: Callum took the photos for this) on a Monday, when I’m less pressed for time.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate my perfectly tidy and meticulously ordered makeup desk.
These are the products that end up on my face most days. NARS Sheer Glow is my standard full-coverage base (in the winter I wear the shade Mont Blanc). Then I do my brows, with either the Anastasia Dipbrow blah blah shut up about it already Morgan, or the Hourglass Arch Brow Pencil (pictured). I put the MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly all over my eyelids and the two cooler toned (or warm toned, in MAC terms) concealers from the light MAC Pro Conceal and Correct palette in places that need concealing.
I’ve been loving my bronzer lately, specifically the bronzer from the Brooke Shields x MAC collection because it is a) great, and b) called Scone and b.5) I love scones. I do some general face-warming and then concentrate it on my cheeks to use as a blush. I’ll also throw this through my crease on my eyes, as it’s a good matte medium brown. In this look I then darkened the outer corner of my eyelid with MAC eyeshadow in Antiqued, and smudged it along my lower lash line.
Lastly, an aggressive coating of mascara and the Revlon Colourburst Lacquer Balm in Coy, which is super brown. Brown and shiny. I love it.
