Make-up Shake-up #4

Evening lovelies,

I have decided after last weeks Make-up Shake-up, that I would pair it down a little this week.

These are my make-up picks for this week.

For my primer again this week I have gone with my La Roche-Posay Effaclar Mat. This is really moisturising and is a great base for makeup. 
Again I have stuck with my NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser for foundation this week. I love the light coverage it gives, and it doesn't feel too cakey which I love.

For corrector this week I have stuck with my trusty Bobbi Brown under eye corrector in Light Bisque.

Also for concealers this week, I have stuck with my Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Porcelain. I love this for under my eyes. I also went with my MAC Select Cover-Up concealer in NW20, which is a little dark for me, so I tend to use this on other areas of my face that need covering.

I have also stuck with my Urban Decay All Nighter spray, which is great for keeping any oil at bay.

For highlighter this week I stuck with my NARS Albatross highlighter. I love it for daytime as it is nice and subtle.
Lastly for powder, I went with my MAC Studio Fix in NW15. This is definitely one of my favourite powders and doesn't tend to look cakey.

I would like to think I have been quite good this week; I chose two blushes this week. Since digging out my Benefit Coralista last week, I thought I would give it another go this week. 
The second blush I chose has been a long time favourite of mine- MAC Tenderling. I love this blush for days when I want to keep my makeup minimal. It also works great as a contour colour on paler skintones like myself.
Finally for contour this week I have stuck with my NARS Laguna bronzer. Hands down my favourite bronzer I have tried!

For eyeshadows I made up a little MAC neutral quad. I picked three eyeshadows (the fourth is for brows). I wanted to keep my eyes basic this week. The colours I choses were Wedge, Ricepaper and Patina. I quite like Ricepaper and Wedge together. For my base I am sticking with my Paint Pot in Painterly.

For brows I kept with my Cork eyeshadow from MAC, this is a great match for my brows as they don't end up looking too drawn on. With that I am using my Anastasia brow gel.

For liner I went with my Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal in Nude. This is great for brightening up my eyes.

This week for mascara I have gone back to my YSL Shocking mascara, I feel this definitely gives my lashes definition and keeps a curl really well. For my bottom lashes I have gone with my Clinique Bottom Lash mascara, which I love!


I chose three lip products this week. I chose two neutral lipsticks from MAC, I went with my trusty MAC Hue lipstick & MAC Viva Glam V. These are great for adding a shine and a hint of colour. I also went with my Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me, again this adds a hint of colour, and helps to moisturise at the same time- did I mention it smells A-MAZING!?]
