I'm back to using my Bourjois Healthy Mix which I've fallen back in love with again after trying their new offering, the happy light foundation, all I can say is that I'd rather use healthy mix that is a shade too dark for me than use the Happy Light again and I seeing as I hate too dark foundation with a passion, that says a lot for me. As it's quite a dewy foundation, I've been setting it with my Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Plus as it gives a lovely finish that's matte but still a little but radiant, I will say that this is quite shimmery and doesn't really work that well with flash so I wouldn't wear it to take any photo's but for day to day wear it's great. I'm also reaching for my Bourjois Blush in the shade 'Healthy Mix' quite often these days as the healthy flush it gives my cheeks is definitely necessary in this gloomy weather.
For my lips, I've really enjoyed using my Mac lipstick in Peach Blossom, which is another product that I thought would just be a Spring/Summer product but I love the pink/peach tone that it gives to my lips and as it's a cremesheen formula it's very moisturising which is always a positive. I've been reaching for my Carmex as usual but lately I've been preferring it in the tube as opposed to the pot I normally buy just because it's easier to use and less messy when I'm on the go,
I'm also back to using an old favourite on my eye's which is the Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara, which I actually first started using when it first came out and I was still at school which makes me feel a bit old and I've fallen back in love with it after a brief period of hating all mascara's with a plastic brush. My Mac quad has also been getting a lot of use lately. The four colours I'm currently keeping in here are: All that Glitters, Concrete, Patina and Black tied. I tend to use concrete as a brow colour as it's quite an ashy brown which works well with blonde hair and all that glitters all over my lid. The other two are there for if I decide I want to do an easy smoky eye but I also like to use black tied as an eyeline on my upper lashline.
