my new make up essentials
I recently added these to my everyday makeup routine. They are all amazing, and the best I have found of each so far. My happiest discovery is the Laura Mercier foundation – perfect colour, perfect coverage. Fellow blogger Ayr L'oxide recommended it, and as she has the most flawless fair skin I have ever seen, I knew she must be on to something! Shame about the not-so-perfect whopping great price, but when it comes to foundation, I know I have to pay for good quality. Luckily the great Australis eyeliner and mascara are so cheap, then! The Laura Mercier concealer is almost perfect, too – but it is good enough for me. It has the best texture and gives great coverage, but I just wish it was a tiny bit lighter, with maybe a little less pink pigment..! If only.
I recently asked on twitter what you thought was the best way to do makeup posts, and two great points really stayed with me: before and after shots, and step by step start to finish details. I think this makes so much sense! I love seeing how other people do their makeup, whether it's everyday or something a little more special, and I would like to share that too. Product shots are all very well and good, and I love to see what you use, too, but how they are used is the best bit!
