After going through another bare-minimum makeup phase, I'm finally starting to wear more on a day-to-day basis. I've stuck with the same group of products for the past few weeks, so I thought it was time for another one of my Makeup Lately posts.
I recently finally got the right shade of the Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation, and I've fallen head over heels for it again. It gives such good coverage while still looking and feeling light on the skin. My dark circles have been a little crazy lately, so I've been reaching for the Glossier Stretch Concealer to cover them up. I like how hydrating this is so it doesn't make my undereyes crepe-y and dry.
I've been trying to add a bit of color back into my skin, as I've noticed I look a little ill without it. I'm sure you can tell based on my posts here and on Instagram lately that I'm obsessed with the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer in Sun-Kissed. It's the perfect shade of bronzer for me and just looks so natural. And since it's such a soft powder, it blends on effortlessly and is even quicker to apply than a cream. I've been alternating between two highlighters lately depending on how much time I have. If I'm a little more rushed, I go for the Glossier Haloscope in Quartz - this is my all-time favorite highlighter, and it's so easy and quick to apply. The moisturizing oils help it really glide on and blend out with ease. And if I'm wanting something a little extra and have the time, I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild Glow Kit. Isn't it just stunning? For every day I mix a bit of Blue Ice and Pink Heart, the two shades on the left in the palette.
As always, I've been starting out my brows with a bit of the Glossier Boy Brow in Brown to beef them up a little, and then I fill them in a little more with the Milk Makeup Gel Brow in Pilsner. Neither product is too strong, so they keep my brows looking fluffy and natural instead of block-y. I've actually been wearing eyeshadow too, ever since I got the Dior Fusion Mono Eyeshadow in Meteore. I mentioned this in my Five to Try because it's such an interesting formula, and the color is a stunning copper bronze that works well for an everyday look. My favorite mascara to use lately has been the Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara* because it behaves like a waterproof mascara without actually being waterproof. It gives me the perfect amount of drama that I like in my lashes for everyday, and it never smudges!
On my lips I've been going for easy-to-wear formulas and colors. If I'm not just wearing lip balm, the two I've been reaching for the most are the Glossier Generation G in Cake and the Surratt Beauty Prismatique Lipstick in Lili Doree. I don't know why it took me so long to get Cake - it's the perfect peachy nude, and the sheer matte finish makes it look incredibly natural. I don't always do this, but it looks perfect over the top of the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude. The Surratt lipstick is a new addition (I saw it in one of Jessica Clements's videos and thought it was the prettiest color), and it's pretty much NARS Orgasm blush in lipstick form. It's a beautiful peachy pink with a ton of gold shimmer. It doesn't feel gritty at all, but instead really creamy and moisturizing, and the shimmer really enhances the lips and makes them look fuller. It's not a full-on frosted effect, but just a really nice look for this warmer weather.
