Make Up

Make up of the week …

I’m back at work now and in the midst of the craziest time of the year – otherwise known as ‘exam season’…. Aaaahhh!

This unfortunately means that I don’t get as much time to post as I’d like – t doesn’t mean that I forget about my passion though!

So, instead of make up of the day – we get make up of the week. I basically switch up my make up bag on a Sunday night and use it for the week. Here’s what has been on my face this week (hopefully looking half decent!):

I’ve been having a bit of a love affair with the high-street this week (except for Origins) – especially Bourjois.


Max Factor Face Finity Primer – see Primer post for details. Lovely creamy primer. Smooths nicely.

Bourjois Happy Light Primer – for the glow!

I’ve alternated between the following three base products:

Bourjois Nude Sensation Foundation – really starting to love this now (it is quite new – and was only released a few weeks ago). It has a little silica in, but not enough to make it horrible (and if silica/cone doesn’t both you then you’ll love this!). It really does smooth and lasts for ages, but looks so natural. LOVE.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation – again, check out the budget base post for full info. Still love it.

Bourjois 123 CC cream – I’ve had a horrible cold this week and this was added to the bag to sort out my red nose and general sallowness/extreme exhaustion! It works a dream.


Origins Plantscription Concealer -this is a new purchase this week. 17.00. Award winning under eye concealer. Really light and effective. Love it. Been using it on red patches too and it works a treat.

Maybelline Instant Eye Eraser – budget favourite. Info on budget concelers coming up soon.

Bourjois Creme Blush in 02: Healthy Glow.

Bourjois Delice de Poudre -Chocolate Bronzing Powder in Light (who doesn’t like a budget, no shimmer bronzer that smells like chocolate?!)

Bourjois Java Rice Powder – more info on this GORGEOUS powder coming soon! ❤

Loreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Julianne’s Nude


Quite simple on eyes this week – I couldn’t be bothered!

Maybelline Colour Tattoos – in Permanent Taupe (matte brown) and Pink Gold (shimmery pink) – last all day, don’t crease, cheap – lovely.

No7 Stay Perfect eye crayon – for the inner corners to look more awake! I only buy No7 products when they have a 5pound voucher offer on.

Origins Gin-zing Mascara – this was a freebie that arrived with my Origins concealer above and I LOVE it! Amazing brush, separates and non-clumping. Lasts all day too. Great curl. LOVE.

Benefit Gimme Brow – love this, but I have a dupe for it coming soon…

And that is all … another post coming tonight too…
