I'm always in a rush before I leave the house so hardly ever end up taking photos with "fresh" makeup, keeping with the theme these photos were taken about 12 hours after application and a hard days work hence why I look so tired. But as you can see the eyeliner is still in tact.
Here's what I'm wearing:
- FACE: Kiehl's tinted moisturiser (medium) Mac studio finish concealer (NC30)
- CHEEKS: Benefit Hoola, Prestige Glam tan and Mac Vanilla pigment to highlight.
- EYES: Shu Uemera painting liner (black) L'oreal Voluminous mascara, Mac vanilla pigment to highlight.
- Lips: Nothing, it all rubbed off! But I did have Mac Lazy Day lipstick on top of a lipliner. :(
Note: I do like the Shu Uemera painting liner it just annoys me as when I apply it it immedietly transfers to my upper eyelid as it doesn't dry quick enough, I sometimes pat it with some 'Carbon' e/s by Mac to set it but the same thing happens. I think it's just the shape of my eyes, I powdered my eyelids, and tried using a base and it still doesn't stay put until it's properly dry which takes about 5 mintues. Although once it's set and dry it aint movin', it lasts all day with the same instense black pigment. Ehh you win some you lose some!
My belly kind of looks the same as it did a couple of weeks ago, I still don't even look pregnant unless I'm wearing a white horizontally striped top :) I'm just over 16 weeks / 4 months now and am slowly starting to get my energy back and rekindling my love for homemade Turkish food!
Today I realised I don't own a white shimmery colour to highlight the inner corners of my eyes, I immediately fixed that problem by purchasing Mac 'Crystal Avalanche' eyeshadow which is a veluxe pearl. 'Crystal Avalanche' won over 'Shroom', 'Phloof' and 'White Frost' as the texture is much softer and the colour was as bright as I wanted it to be. See a swatch below.
I don't know what's wrong lately with mascaras but anything I use doesn't give me the effect I desire. It just looks dry and clumpy ewwwww! My favourite L'oreal voluminous isn't performing as well as it used to and of course I had to fix that problem too. I repurchased the Mac Zoom Fast Lash mascara as I really enjoyed using it the last time I had it.
Are you rocking winged eyeliner in the heat, do you own a shimmery white eyeshadow and are you having problems with your mascaras?
Chit Chat over, I can go on forever but it's getting late and I need my beauty sleep! :)
