Make Up Haul!

Hello my loves!

I hope you all had a good weekend, I'm sorry I haven't been posting much this week I've been super busy with work and everything!

But I did find time to go shopping (I know, naughty!) and pick up a few bits and pieces that I've had my eye on for a while now and I couldn't wait to get home and play with it all so I could get on and tell you all about it! So here's what I got..

MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Rebel
Smashbox Oil-Free Photo Finish Primer in Light
Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara in Black
Smashbox Smoke Box Eye Palette
*The MAC Fluidline wasn't for me but I just thought I'd include in the picture, and I also bought MAC lipstick in Rebel and forgot to put it in there!
I also came home with a little sample pot of the Creme de la Mer Moisturising Gel Cream that I can't wait to try!
Swatches coming soon! 🙂
Love & Lipstick,
Tammy xoxo

Fresh Faced Friday!

Hello my lovelies!

I decided to do a little bit of a tutorial for you today, just a round up of my general, everyday make up routine, hope you enjoy it! 🙂

So, this is before the magic happens, fresh faced and ready to go! (Scary, I know :p)

So first off, you know I always start with my skincare. So to start with, I applied my Lancôme Visionnaire serum, Clarins HydraQuench cream because I think coming into the winter time, my skin gets a bit drier so I need that extra little bit of hydration, and finally Clarins Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm purely because it gives the perfect base for lipstick, especially if your wearing a colour. It’s also super moisturising, which is great if you wear a lot of matte lipsticks, like me, and your lips tend to be drier.

So now it’s onto the base. I started with the Porefessional primer from Benefit (great if you have oily/combination skin like me, and open pores as well!), just applied with my fingers on the t-zone. I then buffed Doublewear Light foundation from Estée Lauder in 03 into my skin using the Stippling Brush from E.L.F. I also applied the Benefit Bo-ing Concealor (02) using my ring finger onto any little blemishes before dusting Creme de la Mer translucent Loose Powder over my whole face.

Next, onto the Contouring & Highlighting. This is the part people seem to have most difficulty with so ill do a separate tutorial on that later 🙂 I started by dusting MUA Bronzed Perfection Bronzer onto the higher planes of the face (forehead, cheekbones, nose and chin). Then, apply the bronzer, lightly, (your not trying to look like you need to wash your face!) along the hairline, down each side of the bridge of the nose and underneath the cheekbones and sweep out wards to the hair line. Then, with highlighter, I used Watts Up! from Benefit, apply to the centre of the forehead, brow bones, cheek bones, down the centre of the nose, Cupid’s bow and chin and buff in using a foundation brush. Then, with your blusher, apply lightly to the apples of the cheeks and sweep out towards the hairline.

This should be what your aiming for:

Then it’s onto the exciting part, eyes! 🙂 I used the Urban Decay Naked Pallete to cereal an everyday smokey eye look. I started by using Sidecar from the centre of the lid outwards, and then applying Naked to the crease.

I them applied Virgin as my highlight, to the inner corner of the eye.

Finally, I used Darkhorse (this is my most used colour in the palette, I blend it with everything!), on the outer crease and lid to add some definition.

Then, I simply added black kohl liner to the top and bottom lash lines and smudged slightly with my fingers, before adding They’re Real mascara from Benefit.

You can see the before and after here too, which I think is pretty amazing, my eyes go from having no lashes at all to almost looking like falsies (in a good way!).

Next, it was onto the brows! You all know i love a strong brow and if you haven’t seen my post on how to do the perfect brows, you can find it here..https://loveandlipstickforever.wordpress.com/2013/08/20/how-to-get-the-perfect-brows/, but this is what I used today.

 

Lastly, I added E.L.F’s Moisturising Tinted Lip Balm in Berry and we’re good to go!

This is what you should end up with!

Hope you had fun reading this guys,

Love & Lipstick,

Tammy xoxo


Lipstick Challenge!

Hi pretties!

So I’m feeling a bit girly today so I decided to go for a pretty pink lipstick 🙂
It’s called ‘Pink Riot’ and its from Estée Lauder. It’s a gorgeous, rosy pink and my boyfriend says it makes me look like a doll when I wear it so that’s good enough for me! You can check it out below..

I love the Pure Colour range of lipsticks from Lauder because they’re so smooth and creamy and they come in so many different shades, from the palest nude to brights to the deepest plums, there’s even a grey in there somewhere! The colour is amazing and they last so well, they’re quite expensive at £22 but in my opinion they’re well worth it 🙂

What’s your lipstick of the day?

Love & Lipstick,

Make up Shopping, Again…

Ahh so, I went make up shopping, again.. (sigh). Genuinely starting to think I might literally have an addiction to make up, I can almost hear rehab calling for me!
But anyway, I came back with one of my favourite items EVER, the La Mer translucent face powder (eek!). I absolutely love this, it is expensive, I think it retails at like £55, but it is worth every single penny! It’s super fine, doesn’t clump, gives a flawless finish and lasts FOREVER.

As you can see from the picture, I came back with a few more lipsticks that I didn’t need but sure, you can never have too many and I’ve been eyeing up these colours for a while now 🙂
The 2 MAC ones are the MAC Red and Pervette. MAC Red is obviously what it says on the tin, but Pervette is a little different, it’s a sheer lilac-y pink shimmer, which is actually a lot nicer on than it probably sounds lol.

The Estée Lauder ones, I love, their pure colour vivid shine lipsticks are some of the best lippies I’ve ever tried. The texture is smooth and creamy, the colour payoff is amazing and the staying power is great, what more could you want?! 🙂 I bought Pink Riot, which is a bright rosy pink and Violet Electra which is a stunnnnning vibrant purple.
Swatches are below, let me know what you think! 🙂
