Gone are the days where you simply smacked on a bit of foundation, blusher and lippy. Now it's all about strobing, contouring, highlighting and getting that eyeliner/eyebrow on fleek.
I'm no make-up expert but after being inspired by The Sunday Girl and her recent blog on blog post ideas. I thought I'd let you know what sort of beauty trends I'm currently following...
Highlighting has become one of my favourite beauty trends to date and I've been using this more or less every day. This one is Undress Your Skin, a light pink shimmer highlighter from MUA and it's beautiful for giving a subtle glow on the cheekbones, the tip of the nose and on the cupid's bow. It's one I'll certainly be using on holiday next week and I shall also be buying a golden shimmer before I fly!
I'm hoping to get my eyebrows waxed/shaped this week before my holidays but I've loved using a brow powder as part of my make-up regime. It's made such a difference to the look of my brow, making it appear more fuller throughout, covering up any patchiness. For those interested, I use the Freedom Duo Eyebrow Powder in the shade Dark Brown.
Matte Lipsticks.I'm becoming an eager fan of the matte lipstick and have already tried out a few different brands. From the couple I've tried, my advice is to avoid Sleek's matte lipsticks at all costs. They are very poorly made, dry out your lips and ends up crumbling all over your lips and onto your teeth (not pleasant). One I've recently purchased is L'Oreal Paris' Infallible Matte Max Lipstick in the shade 001 Silencio. It's ultra smooth, doesn't suffocate the lips and feels like a soft balm on your lips. It has a handy sponge applicator and it's shade is a pink/coral colour.
So these are my current beauty trends, let me know what yours have been recently in the comments below.
