Makeup I am loving at the moment

2/24/2019

Yes yes! I am finally back at writing about makeup! Today I felt like sharing what have been my favourite makeup bit at the moment. I thought about making wither a 2018 favourites post or a January/February favourites post but neither felt right. So I went for this! Specially because I am planning to do a few reviews on some of these items and new skincare routine posts in the future (with an upcoming haul on its way!)
I haven't been wearing much makeup, apart from when I have classes or when I meet one of my friends. I have been going for the same type of look: simple, warm shadow on the lids. Occasionally I had a bit of eyeliner and always nude lipstick. 

Between Priming and taking it simple 


There are day when I want nothing more than just a bit of colour on my lids and run to get the bus. I'll always start by using the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Shadow, because otherwise no eyeshadow will look good. I am so happy I decided to do the investment and get this guy last year.  As a wash of colour, I've been loving the Colourpop Super Shock Shadows in La La, which is a lovely Cooper Brown shade with golden reflexes and Weenie, which is a more Red-Brown. I love to blend these all over my lids and I am seriously thinking about getting more shades on my next colourpop haul! 
For eyeliner, I've been playing with the NYX That's the Point hella fine eyeliner and although I like it very much has been a favourite, I have to admit that I don't see my self repurchasing it once it's done. To be hones, as soon as I finish it, I'll be back to my beloved Clio Kill Black eyeliner (which costs practically the same). On my under eye area, I've been loving the NYX Faux Whites in Mintcream and I've been thinking about getting either the pink or the lavanda version in a near future. This eyeliner gives a really bright effect, making my eyes seem bigger (which is appreciated, specially when I haven't been able to sleep that well...)



Giving an extra pop of colour 


Although I've been enjoying really simple looks, I still enjoys a bit of colour here and there. That is why Colourpop's Give it To Me Straight palette has been a ultimate favourite since I got it. I love the really warm shades like Candid, Be Blunt and TMI and how compact this palette is, alongside the really pleasent eyeshadow formula. I am seriously thinking about picking up another of these palettes in my next colourpop haul! 
As for blush, although I've been switching around my collection, the one I've been picking up a lot it Benefit's Rockateur. It is a gorgeous Burnt Rose blush, which although it might sem odd, it really goes with most of my looks without making me seem strange or weird - specially If I go for a more colourful look. I hope they don't discontinue it!
And for lipstick, I've been sticking up for this lovely Makeup Revolution x Soph Lipstick in Fudge. It's a gorgeous brown nude shade that goes with everything and has been providing some 90's vibes I really enjoy. The formula is super comfortable and I want to pick up the other shades before someone decided to discontinue it (please don't!! They are amazing!!)

  1. Love the colour scheme in the Give it To Me Straight palette! But yes, I rarely wear makeup these days too. But when I do, it'll either be base + eyeliner + mascara, or a whole menu of items! You've been talking about Rockateaur for a long time and you've barely scratched off the embossing, damn. (Though same, because that stuff is pigmented and you don't need a lot)

    "Fudge" looks super pretty!

    1. ees! I mean it's neutral but a colourful neutral?
      A little goes a long way with Benefit blushes. I've come to the realisation that I won't be buying a full-size blush in the future because of that. (also the mini versions are more friendly to my wallet...oops!)

      Fudge is so nice! I've been thinking about getting the other two (although the last thing I need are more nude lipsticks)

  2. Love the ColourPop shadows - both in the palettes and their Super Shock singles! I can't believe I've never tried Rockateur - just my sort of shade :)
