Make Me Up

I don't really wear make-up day to day - I don't own eyeshadow (I have hooded eyes so it doesn't do great things for me) and I purchased my very first lipstick last year, but lately, for a night out, I've started to experiment a little - emphasising my eyes with lashings of mascara (sometimes false lashes!!), a red lip or highlighter on my cheeks and brow bones. These are the products I've been using for a nighttime make-up look:

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm
I'm in love with this product! For use with and without foundation on the days I need to look fresh, awake and radiant and at night I use it as a primer.

Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Foundation
A great foundation if you prefer a more lightweight natural looking coverage.

Lancôme Effacernes Concealer
This is without doubt the best concealer I've ever used - great coverage of dark under eye circles and it doesn't get cakey, flaky or crease when covering blemishes.

Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Powder
A sheer natural finish - perfect for setting foundation for flawless longer lasting wear.

Chanel Powder Brush #1
Bought this at the same time as the powder and the round brush helps provide a flawless powder finish. It doesn't lose hairs like some cheaper brushes so it's worth the investment.

Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder
I've been using this bronzer for over 10 years and love it's creamy velvety texture. It's never orange or dirty brown and has no glitter or shimmer which is rare for most bronzers.

Nars Blush
I'm brand new to blush but now I'm wondering how I ever survived without it! I was recommended Nars for their high pigmentation yet natural looking finish. I use the cult classic Orgasm - a peachy pink with a hint of golden shimmer that would suit most skin tones.

Lancôme Hypnose Mascara
I always have a Lancôme mascara in my makeup case and love how the Hypnose provides great volume and length whilst defining and separating lashes - no clumps here.

Chanel Le Crayon Lèvres Lipliner
Perfect for lining, defining and maximising your lips. Prevents bleeding and helps hold your lipstick all night long. I use 14 Carmin which is a great match for Gabrielle Rouge Coco Lipstick.

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick
Soft and creamy lipstick that is moisturising and ultra pigmented. I wear 19 Gabrielle - the most perfect red that lasts for hours.



  1. ditto on the Lancome, chanel lipliner, and beauty flash balm!

    i also need to do an edit and a revamp of my make up bag.

    ps nice shot of your products! you must have a proper slr eh?

    1. Let me know what products you use. I'm always eager to try good recommendations. Yes, I have a Canon EOS 600D - but I have no idea what I'm doing with it! One of my plans for 2013 is to take a short course to work out what all the buttons and features do!!

  2. Fab shots. I think I will do a course as well before I invest in a camera tho. Bc I know zoom and that's about it!

    I am going to do a post soon on it. I am a bit of a product junkie...I might have to categorise first.
