My Makeup Routine

photo-1Since the Skin Veil from Ellis Faas landed in my lap I’ve been unable to put it down, why? Because it’s the closest foundation I’ve tried that actually mimics my skin tone.

It’s natural looking in a way that doesn’t look like I’m wearing makeup.  You may be asking yourself how can this be? It doesn’t look like I have piles of foundation and powder caked on my face, yet my skin is luminous and my imperfections are concealed without artifice.

Ellis Faas mascara is another beauty tool that enhances your natural lashes without looking like you’re trying too hard.

Naturally I’m also in love with MAKE, they make the most amazing Glossing Powder that leaves your skin glowing even  more if that’s possible.

And last but not least I am addicted to my Brow Powder eyebrow pencil by iT Cosmetics, it’s not only natural looking, but it doesn’t come off until you take it off.

Ladies, this was just my canvas, this doesn’t include my skincare regimen or my red lipstick.

Playing With Colour – MAKE COLOUR

Celeste-e-Verde-Palette_1_1000_WhiteI don’t know about you guys but I love playing with colour, layering, mixing and matching. A new brand I mentioned awhile ago is by MAKE.

The colours are bold, look-at-me colours that can be applied subtly or with dramatic flair.  Everything is in the wrist and your favorite makeup brushes, although I have been known to use my fingertips.

This palette is called Celeste e Verde, Blue & Green and the colours are sublime.  The pigments have long-wearing colour, they don’t come off until you take them off.

I can’t wait to try these with one of my various shades of crimson and guess what? If you forget to take your tried&true red, there is a red inside that not only compliments the shades but various skin tones. Plus, if you’re not in the mood for red there are other shades available.

Truly a collection of fiery brights and gorgeous earth tones.
