Today's Make Up!

Today was one of those days when I woke up earlier than usual and I was excited to sit down and put my make up on. It's super warm here so I went for something pretty simple, focusing mainly on foundation & concealer because my skin isn't having the best of weeks and I'm trying to hide some major break outs!

Although I am having a few breakouts, my skin is still a little on the dry side so I'm all about the serums and the primers even in the warm weather. The REN Rose Moisture Defence Serum is one of my skin care saviours, it's definitely not something I would recommend unless your skin is dry, but if you do have dry skin I think you would love this especially in the winter! For a little extra luminosity I used the Touch In Sol I'm Very Useful Make Up Boomer* (such a cute name, it definitely is very useful!) which is a primer that gives a slight pearly glow to the skin. Perfect if, like me, you're always trying to achieve that pretty summer glow.

Despite having a lot to cover up I don't like to wear a heavy foundation when it's warm so I've been reaching for and absolutely loving the Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint. It has an SPF of 20 which is perfect for me today because unfortunately I'm going to be stuck inside pretty much all day. I'm super jealous if you get to go outside and enjoy it! For under my eyes I used the Maybelline Instant Anti-Age Eraser Concealer for the first time. I picked this up the other day in the shade light, which was the lightest shade in the Boots I went to and although I know there is a lighter shade in the range, I really wanted to give it a try anyway. It's slightly too dark for me but it actually works pretty well as a sort of corrector for my dark circles. I'm not exactly sure what I think about it yet, but it feels really nice and light, which is what I hoped for. For a little extra coverage where I need it I used my trusty Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, which I'm sure needs no explanation. Best concealer for under £5 for sure!

Benefit Hoola Bronzer is my all time favourite and I just used a tiny bit of this to add a little extra colour to my face. It never makes me look orange because it's quite cool in tone and I really like that. For cheeks I used the Estee Lauder Cheek Rush in X-Pose Rose*, which is just stunning. It feels so lightweight on the cheeks and most importantly, it lasts all day!


For eyes I just like to wear mascara and there's only really one option for me at the moment and that's the Maybelline The Falsies. I've talked about this a lot recently, but I love what this does for my lashes and it doesn't smudge! Yay! Finally for lips I just wanted something quick, glossy and non fussy. This is the Touch In Sol Lipgloss in Cherry Pink* and I like it because it gives such a pretty colour without feeling super sticky. It's not the most long lasting but I don't mind reapplying throughout the day.
And that's it! Have you used any of these products before? 
Which products have you been reaching for a lot recently?

  19. Your skin looks lovely and fresh here Jennie! I prefer simple makeup looks in this weather too, I find that my eyeliner seems to melt off too quickly anyway so I've ditched that for now! My skin was really inflamed last week due to the heat I think but it seems to have settled down now thank goodness - it's so frustrating isn't it. xxx

  26. You have such pretty features. I always marvel at how fresh-faced you look.

    It seems as if you're wearing nothing but mascara and a light flash of blusher.
