So I didn't manage to get out my monthly makeup post for August however I am back today with my September post. This month I've been reaching for lots of berry tones and digging out my more heavy coverage bases.
The first thing I've dug out is Nars Sheer glow foundation this is one of my favourite bases for winter. It's a little heavier than my Naked skin foundation however it packs an insane amount of coverage. It isn't the most hydrating of foundations however used over a nice thick moisturizer it looks stunning, it has a beautiful satin finish and I would highly recommend it to everyone. Concealer wise my skin pretty much played ball for the entire of the month so I was just using my NYX HD concealer under my eyes and a little bit on the tip of my nose. This shade is super pale which I find hard to find in the drugstore. It also has a beautiful full coverage finish without looking thick or cakey on the skin.
Brow wise I've been using the NYX Micro brow pencil which is a brilliant dupe for one of my favourite brow pencils which is the Smashbox Brow tech matte pencil as it is so super fine and a fab ash dark brown shade. For my bronzer I'm still using my Urban Decay Beached bronzer in Bronzed as it is just my favourite bronzer, I think it may have to go away now unless I tan as it is the darker shade however I may still be able to get away with it with a super light hand. Laura Geller's Glided honey has been my highlight of choice this month, it is a gorgeous gold shade that compliments the tiny bit that is left of my summer tan. Again I think this is probably going to go away until next spring now but I thought it deserved one last hurrah. Finally for my face I've been using Essence's Matte blush in Berry me up is the perfect transitional blush. It is a muted rosy berry shade which gives a gorgeous flush to the skin.
Eye wise I've actually not been using the Urban Decay primer potion as I have been testing out the Essence I heart stage eye primer and I have to say I'm impressed don't get me wrong it doesn't make my shadows last as long as Urban decay's offering however it still helps massively with my oily lids. For shadows I've been using Sleek's Goodnight sweetheart palette which is a stunning mix of pink, berry and brown. I really feel like this is a fab drugstore palette for this time of year. Finally for eyes I've been using Lancôme Hypnose mascara again as it just does something magical to my lashes. Lip wise I've been really mixing it up so I haven't actually included a lip colour but pretty much as long as it's berry toned I've been wearing it!
