What's On My Face #1

 
I'm starting off this What's on my face series with a natural makeup look that I tend to wear on a daily basis. For the base, I wanted to go super light, so I just opted for a BB cream, with a higher coverage concealer to mask my blemishes and dark circles. At the moment, I've been very much inspired by the stunning Kylie Jenner's makeup, so of course I had to do the classic winged eyeliner. However this time I'm not sporting Jenner's 90's lip trend, instead a pink nude. I've also been obsessed with using the bronzer in my Sleek Face Form palette as a subtle crease colour,to give some warmth. I find that it ties my whole makeup look together - matching my bronzed face.

BASE:
Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream // Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer // Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

COLOUR:
Sleek Face Form kit

EYES:
Rimmel Wonderfull Mascara // Soap & Glory Supercat eyeliner

LIPS:
MAC Creme Cup Lipstick

Review: MAC Creme Cup Lipstick



 I was lucky enough to be gifted my very first MAC lipstick and it has definitely started off my little obsession! I decided to pick out the much raved about colour in the beauty world - Creme Cup. From watching various YouTube  videos and seeing swatches, I was very apprehensive that the colour would wash me out, but me being curious, I had to give it a try.

Creme cup is described as a light, blue pink which is very wearable for most skin tones. This is a shade that with just with one swipe it can have a pretty, pink wash of colour; depending on what you like, it can be built up to a fuller coverage with additional swipes.

The lipstick has a cremesheen finish which makes it very moisturizing  but I always have to make sure that I give my lips a good scrubbin' before applying it, as otherwise it sinks into the tiniest cracks and dry patches! The staying power is about up to an or two, so this a definite one to put in your bag and reapply throughout  the day. Whenever I do my everyday makeup, I always end up reaching for this lipstick as it's just that perfect nude, pink lippy. 

 To round it up, I am very much in love with this lipstick and it's safe to say I will be buying many more in the future! The next MAC lipstick on my list is Velvet Teddy, which the ever so famous Kylie Jenner loves to wear.
