January Makeup 2017

So it's the end of January already and it's time for another monthly makeup post. So without further ado I'm going to get straight into it.
Primer wise I've been going for the Clarins Instant radiance primer in the shade 01 which is a beautiful pinky toned glowy primer, this adds a beautiful radiance to the skin and really helps to make the skin look healthy and glowy. Base wise I've been using another Clarins product their Skin detox BB fluid is the most beautiful light base which works so perfectly with my dry skin. It leaves a dewy look to the skin without it going to far and being more sweaty looking. Concealer wise I've been going for Urban Decay Naked skin under my eyes which I'm pretty sure you all know by now is one of my all time favourites and also the Clarins Instant concealer which is another amazing product for anyone with dry skin.

Clarins 01, Benefit High beam, Urban Decay Sin, Mac Fleur power, Urban Decay Bronzed.
Brow wise I've been going a little softer at the moment so I am back to using my Benefit Precisely my brow pencil and topping it off with a little Gimme brow. I find this just gives my brows a slightly more natural look and pairing that with the natural glowy skin I just really like the way it looks. Moving onto eyes I have been using a new palette which I am so in love with. The Ultimate basics palette from Urban decay is so very up my street and I have been reaching for the more warmer tones to create a quite subtle but still a little smokey look. Underneath those shadows I've been using the Kiko everlasting eyeshadow stick in 05 as a base then I've been using pregame as my lid/transition shade, then Extra Bitter in the crease and under the eyes and just to add a little more smokiness I've been popping Faith on the outer third of the eye.

Kiko 07, UD Pre-game, UD Extra Bitter, UD Faith.

Moving back to the face I am back using the Urban Decay Beached bronzer as I just can't seem to stay away from it for 5 minutes. It is just my favourite bronzer of all time and I feel like it is such a good all rounder for any skin tone. Blush wise again I've been using an old favourite, Mac Fleur power is a stunning mix of peach and pink giving the most natural pretty pink flush on the cheeks. Finally for my face I've been going to town with the highlight. I've been using Benefit High beam underneath the Urban decay Sin highlighter and oh lord does it look beautiful.

Kat Von D Bow n Arrow, Clarins 03.
Finally to finish off the look I've actually being reaching for a much glossier lip than normal. Although it doesn start off with a Matte liquid lipstick, Kat Von D Bow n arrow is just my perfect nude shade however to add a little bit of glossiness I've been using the Clarins Instant light natural lip perfector in the shade 03 which is a really pretty browny pink nude.

So that's it! I hope you have enjoyed this months monthly makeup post. Don't forget to let me know what you've been using this month in the comments below!

  1. Those Urban Decay shades are beautiful! You can't beat an UD palette. I haven't bought this because I just thought I had too many palettes anyway and now you've got me rethinking!
