It’s been a while since I’ve played with make up just cos. I’ve been at home self isolating for four weeks now and whilst I’m yet to begin to feel it, I am missing putting outfits together and doing my make up.
Being unemployed, I have been having virtual interviews for a couple of new roles, which is a positive that some companies are still hiring ready for the country to get going again, so I’ve done my make up on the odd occasion, but I’m reluctant to use my favourite items cos A they’re not cheap and I want to waste them on a 30 minute video call and a lap of the garden and B this has been a good time to use up samples I’ve acquired over the last two years (my last beauty cull was before we moved house in April 2018) and use the dregs of old products.
I’m loving the lilac eye make up trend that’s in now so my last online interview felt like a good time to remind me I’m a bouji bitch and have a play around – let’s face it, I had time.
I used a mix of current and forgot products and I must add I applied SPF 30 first as it’s needed daily, but especially as I’m sat out in the garden everyday at the minute.
I wanted to apply a full coverage base without using a foundation that was to heavy, so I used a combo of Charlotte Tilbury tinted moisturiser with an old Kiko foundation and my ride or die Revolution Conceal and Define concealer to add hide spots and brighten up under my eyes and along the bridge of my nose.
To create the lilac shadow look, I used an old Revolution palette which was slightly too shimmery tbh, but it’s all I had so I tried to make it work!
