Despite being full bloom winter in Dublin, i tried to adjust my makeup accordingly to the calendar month. Which meant swapping the foundation for a BB cream, peachy cheeks, bold lips and groomed eyebrows.
The Clinique BB cream (shade 3) satisfied my coverage needs providing a medium coverage with a matte finish, whilst protecting my skin with a high factor. I dusted lightly on top some Urban Decay Ultra Definition Powder, left my skin ultra silky and blurred out the imperfections. It feels very fine on the skin, without any of that ‘powdery’ effect.
My cheeks were brought to life with Mac Springsheen blusher, a beautiful satin finish peachy coral (similar would be Benefit Coralista, another favorite of mine). I needed something soft but healthy looking, to match it with bold red lips – Rimmel Apocalips in Big Bang.
Because my lips were making such a statement, i kept my eyes defined by black winged eyeliner and lashings of mascara. I filled my eyebrows with the Smashbox Brow Tech Crayon in Brunette, an amazing product that probably deserves its own post. Also its a great dupe for the more expensive Tom Ford Eyebrow pencil.
Have a feeling my April favorites will be, ‘simple ways to hide head bumps and face bruises’ or the exciting ‘arnica saves blogger’s face’.
