The flu face

Now I feel like since I started uni I have spent a large majority of my time feeling a little under the weather. Today I thought I would share with you the products I reach for when I am feeling rubbish. 

I always go for a super hydrating base when I feel unwell, the Pixi Rose flash balm is potentially the most hydrating primer I have ever tried. If you have oily skin I would avoid this like the plague but if you are dry and dehydrated give it a go! Bare minerals complexion rescue is my go to when I feel super dry and when I don't want anything too heavy. Glossier stretch concealer is very light and hydrating under the eyes and doesn't cling to any dry patches. It looks super glowy and healthy and makes the skin look a lot less grey and gross.

For bronzer I love Mac Refined golden which is a beautiful warm bronze shade with gold reflects. This gives the skin a beautiful glow and adds colour to the cheeks. I love this bronzer and as long as I use it with a light hand when I am pale it just adds a beautiful colour. Highlight wise I tend to reach for a liquid highlight. Currently I'm loving the Nip and Fab liquid illuminator in White gold which is such a pretty pinky silver toned highlight again adding to the glowiness I pile onto the skin. 

Brow wise as always I reach for Anastasia Dip brow which is my all time favourite brow product which you will know if you read my blog. For a quick wash of colour I love the Maxfactor Masterpiece Liquid shadow in Coffee which is a really pretty taupe shade which just adds a nice little wash of colour and shimmer to the lids. Mascara wise I have been reaching for Total temptation mascara which doesn't end up half way down my face when my eyes water, which they do a lot when I don't feel so great. Finally for the lips I love the NYX butter glosses as they are incredibly comfortable. My lips are very dry anyway but especially when I am under the weather. To finish off the face I love the Pixi Wakeup vitamin mist which again adds even more glow to my skin. 

That's it for today, I would love to know what you use when you are feeling under the weather.

  13. I've been loving Maybelline's Total Temptation too, it doesn't feel heavy or uncomfortable on the eyes like some mascaras can. Hope you feel better soon!
