What I am loving at the moment- make up

Cream blushers are definitely one of my favourite make up items and recently I find myself constantly reaching for Maybelline dream mousse blusher in peach satin and NYX cream blush in glow.

The Maybelline one is so easy to apply and it gives a gorgeous peachy pink shimmery colour to the cheeks. The only downside is that it doesn't last throughout the day. The NYX is seriously pigmented and you only need a tiny bit on your finger for each cheek. Because it's so pigmented blending is essential but it gives a gorgeous pink flush and lasts well throughout the day.

I was recently sent some Bloom cosmetics to try out and the Full and flirty waterproof fake lash mascara is by far my favourite product. The first coat really darkens, lengthens and helps to volumise my lashes and the second coat adds more volume. I wouldn't say it gives me a false lash look but it really does help to emphasise them a lot more! It also lasts well throughout the day with minimal smudging and flaking.

Although I love the smoky eye look, I'm rubbish at creating it, so I'm been using ELF brightening eye colour quad in drama and Sleek make up kajal eyeliner in nocturnal to create a super easy cheat version. I simply apply the silver colour all over my eyelid, then draw a thick line along my lashline. I then blend the two colours together and voila a quick and easy smoky eye in minutes!

  2. I love the Maybelline cream blush too, but you're right it doesn't last all day and it can get a bit smudgy. I too use the cheats technique to get a smoky eye! :)

  9. Have you tried the Smashbox cream blushes? I have a feeling the NYX one might be a pretty good dupe.
