The Dolce Vita

Those of you who follow me on Instagram have seen the exciting stuff that’s coming up, I’ve got a bunch of Charlotte Tilbury products swatched and ready, soon to be posted! Oohhh the makeup shivers. Let’s start it all with a makeup look including two of the products, ok? The rest comes soon!

So here I’m wearing K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect, a pinky nude. GORGEOUS colour but formula wise quite standard. Not bad at all but not amazing. For £23 I want luxe!

Luxury Palette in The Dolce Vita on the other hand.. An eyeshadow quad in champagne (prime), copper (enhance), gold (pop) and brown (smoke). JEBUS this is gorgeous! I wish the sparkle of the gold would pop in pictures as it does in reality.. I used the shadows “as intended” placement wise, but of course you can do anything you want with it.

Miel Doré

Here’s the exact type of look that I mentioned in the post about this lipstick! No pinky tones on the skin, eyes or lips, only this warm golden hue all over and soft blackened eye makeup.

Diffused Light

Okay, I went there. I tried the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder and Blush and of course, now I’m just another lost soul. It makes my skin look cartoonishly perfect,I mean that SHEEEEN! Sigh.

Lost myself in that brown Becca gel liner aswell, perfect colour, consistency, wear time.. I’m on an insane product finding roll right now! Time for a “recent favourites” video on YouTube, amirite, yes, no, yes?

My go-to eye look right now

Do you get stuck in makeup routines? Just snatching the same stuff and putting it on the same way every morning. I often do with eye makeup, here’s what I’ve reached for lately!

KIKO Soft Touch Blush – Natural Pink (102) smoked out all over the lids with the EcoTools Airbrush Concealer brush, and lashlines slightly defined with the shadow that I use for my brows. So quick and easy, I actually love this blush more as an eyeshadow than as a blush! The pinky brown shade compliments blue and green eyes beautifully.
