February Makeup

I cannot quite believe we are in March already and that my birthday has come and gone for another year. Today is the time of the month that I show you what a typical makeup look has been for me in the previous month. In February I definitely wore quite a bit of minimal makeup due to going to Iceland, being manically busy and having a steroid injection in my hip. So without further ado lets get on with this months very minimal makeup.
Clinique Beyond perfecting foundation and concealer -
I picked this up in Duty free on my way out as I had heard so much stuff about it and I'm so glad I did it is just the most insane coverage but incredibly comfortable and light on the skin. I wasn't sure how this was going to fare on my dry skin as I tend to avoid any higher coverage foundations as they have a tendency to cake however this one just looks so beautiful and doesn't settle into any patches. I also find that this doesn't set into my smile lines which is a massive problem I have with higher coverage bases.
Mac Pro longwear concealer -
This is another product that so many people love and another one that I picked up in Duty free. This like the foundation is very high coverage but doesn't feel cakey. Working equally as well under the eyes as it does on blemishes. I don't need a lot of this with the Clinique foundation however I do like a little bit just to add some brightness under my eyes.
Urban Decay Beached bronzer in Bronzed -
I mentioned this in my last monthly makeup post and possibly the ones before then as I bloody love it. I just think it is the best bronzer for paler skins and it adds both a nice amount of warmth and a little bit of sculpting. I'm not going to go on about it as I speak about it so much but all you need to know is that it is incredible and you need it.
Urban Decay Afterglow highlight in Sin -
Another one that I mentioned last month but I literally haven't used anything else so I had to include it. It is the most beautiful champagne shade which is super metallic and doesn't emphasise any skin texture at all which is a problem I have with a lot of metallic highlighters. Again I'm not going to go on about it but I would definitely suggest you give this a swatch if you are in store.

 Anastasia Dip brow in Medium brown -
I have gone back to my beloved Anastasia dip brow this month as it is just my favourite ever brow product. I just love this for both a dramatic brow and a nice natural one. Recently I've been going for a slightly more toned down brow as I just think a heavy one is to much to go with this otherwise minimal makeup.
Gosh Rebel eyes Mascara -
This is my favourite drugstore mascara at the moment. It does a brilliant job of separating and lengthening the lashes whilst just giving enough volume. I personally prefer a more lengthened look rather than lots of volume. I would highly recommend that if you are on the look out for a new mascara I'd give this one a go.
Charlotte Tilbury Lip cheat in Pillow talk -
I have recently dug this out of my collection and have fallen completely in love with it again. It is so stunning and perfect for over lining the lips and it is just incredibly comfortable to wear unlike a lot of liners.
Mac Lustre Lipstick in Syrup -
This shade is one of my favourite everyday shades and one I wear a lot. It is a gorgeous slightly purple toned nude which for me is just the perfect my lips but better shade. The only thing I will say about this is that it isn't the longest lasting however it isn't a problem for me to reapply throughout the day.


  1. I too have been loving Sin from UD. Great picks! xx


  2. I have been after the Urban Decay highlighter for a while now - ALWAYS sold out in my local Debenhams unfortunately!
