As soon as I received promise cream blush from Illamasqua in the post I couldn’t wait to slap it on to see how pretty it is on the cheeks and I wasn’t disappointed! I’ve got my go-to make up routine pretty set at the moment, keeping everything the same each day apart from my lipstick and blush. My make up loves are lip products and blushers so it’s usually fairly impossible to use the same products every day, but, I think promise is going to be a permanent addition to my daily routine for a long time - it’s gorgeous!
Since discovering Bourjois healthy mix foundation my base make up has become complete. I love the way it makes my skin look, it works well with my favourite concealers and lasts well throughout the day.
♥ Bourjois Healthy Mix – Light Vanilla.
♥ Benefit Boi-ing & Erase Paste – 01.
♥ Eyes Lips Face Under Eye concealer – Fair.
♥ Beauty Without Cruelty loose powder – Translucent.
♥ The Body Shop Big & Curvy Mascara – Black.
In my review I said I probably wouldn’t repurchase Big and Curvy mascara from The Body Shop but I really am in love with what this does to my lashes. The wand is the perfect size to grab even the smallest lashes and it doesn’t transfer at all throughout the day, which I have a lot of problems with usually. Why do you have to be so expensive, big and curvy?!
Illamasqua Cream Blush – Promise.
Promise gives my cheeks that real ‘I look like I’m glowing’ effect that I’ve been lusting after all summer. It’s a really warm candy pink colour that seems to compliment my very pale but quite yellow skin tone nicely.
I decided to pair it with my Illamasqua lipstick in Fable, which is a beautiful rose pink with warm undertones that I don’t give enough love. I combined it with a little Pink Pout from Revlon to make it ever so slightly less matte on my lips. These make a really pretty summery combination that brightens and gives a super fresh look to the face. I even got complimented on my make up in the Post Office today of all places!
I haven’t done a face of the day in a long time, I’m a bit rusty I think! But that’s my current go-to face routine at the moment and the best part is I only use 3 brushes which means I don’t have lots to clean all the time - hoorah!
