Hi everyone, how are you all today?
Since receiving the Jaclyn Hill and Nicol Concilio palettes, I have been using them a lot together; the colour ranges compliment each other so well. What I tend to do is create a warm, slightly burgundy shaded crease, then add a colour or shimmer to the lid.
I really loved the combo today, and I wanted to share some of the products that created this look.
Bare Minerals Bare Pro Liquid Foundation
I am still loving this foundation. The coverage is amazing and feels so comfortable for something that is so full coverage. I have been using a flat-topped foundation brush to buff out the foundation then getting rid of any streaks with a beauty sponge. I trust this foundation to last all day without fading away in weird places. It’s a fantastic product!
Maybelline Erase Eye Concealer
I used to use this in the past and stopped using it because my eyes would water a lot when I wore it. I’ve worn it for about two weeks now and no irritations have occurred. This blends out really well with a beauty sponge and doesn’t crease in fine lines very much.
Maybelline Master Chrome in Molten Gold
I used this in my first impressions post and it has improved. I have scraped away the glittery overlay on the top and the product is gorgeous underneath. It’s still quite subtle, but it has more of a shine than it did originally. I have been using this with a compact highlighter brush and it looks lovely on top of a bright blush. Today I did team it up with Video from Urban Decay, which did make it look more natural.
Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Palette
I used a few of the shimmers from this palette and a couple of the matte transition shades. The mattes are still blending beautifully and teamed up well with the Violet Voss shadows. I did attempt to use Enchanted on a flat synthetic brush however the pigment didn’t carry across on the lid that well. However it applied so well with my fingers. I packed the shade onto my lid with my fingers and blended out the edges slightly to blend them into the mattes better. I absolutely adore this palette.
Violet Voss x Nicol Concilio Palette
Today, I mainly used this palette for the mattes today, but they work so well with the Jaclyn shadows. I love this palette so much. They apply so buttery and give off just the right amount of pigment.
Benefit Bad Gal Bang Mascara
This just launched the other day and I’m already in love. This works so well to give massive, false lash effect looking lashes. It does feel very wet when you apply it but I haven’t noticed any smudging. With the bristles being so small, they’re ideal for the lower lashes too. This is going to be a firm favourite this month.
MAC Amplified Lipstick in Fast Play
This really is such an old favourite of mine. It is the perfect warm nude. This is not the most long lasting of formulas but I still love it on days where my lips are super dry, but I fancy a touch more colour than just a gloss. I will be using this a lot more in the future.
