Fortnightly Make Up RotationFriday, May 22, 2015
At the end of April I did a post about my new weekly make up rotation called Weekly Beauty Basket.
You can read all about the premise in that post but after a couple of weeks I still haven't bought a basket and as my make up needs to be on the go and lives in a make up bag. I have been changing things weekly so far but a number of things have been in each week so I've decided to change fortnightly post fortnightly.
I'm not limiting myself to only using these and I am happy to switch things out as when I need to but this will be the core of my make up for the next fortnight.
|Make up for the next fortnight|
W7 In The City Natural Nudes - Eye Colour Palette, This contains 6 Matt shadows and I'm still finding my way with this. I bought it because it's nice and compact and is all matt but I feel like it's missing something.
Eyebrows - So Susan Dual Brow Powder, This stuff is amazing. It came in a beauty box last year was going to pass it on to a friend but decided to try it. I do go through phases with it as it retails at about £12 which is quite expensive in my mind but I find it stays put all day and doesn't smudge.
Maybelline Brow Drama in Medium Brown, I've spoken about this a lot and I'm still loving it.
Eye liner - Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil in 02 Hot Chocolate. I've never really liked or got on well with twist eye pencils and always still to kajal / Khol pencils but I love this and it was so cheap. I'm tempted to buy another one already. I will be buying one in black, but I'm really liking brown eye make up atm.
Mascara - Rimmel London Kate Eye Rocket in Jet Black.... I've only had this a week and so far I don'r like it. May be I'm doing something wrong but I can't close enough to the root of my eye lash and I find it flakes quite a lot. I'm going to persevere with it for a but longer but at the moment I won't be repurchasing this one.
Lipstick - Clinique Pop in 14 Plum Pop. This was a birthday treat to myself. There are 16 colours and this one jumped out at me. It's a great every day colour. I love the colour on me and I'm determined that I won't save it for best.
Lip Gloss - Collection Lock N Hold 2 Beat Box. I have a love hate relationship with lip glosses. I have a lot of them but find I avoid them and never reach for them. I picked this one up a couple of weeks a go as my 3rd item in a 342 deal at boots. I love this stuff, it smells amazing and while it doesn't last 6 hours. The applicator is really nice as well. It hard to explain but I really like it. There is a sheen rather than glitter to it and it I keep finding myself reaching for it.
Revlon Super Lustorous 040 Nude. I don't know if this is available any more (I think it's been repackaged and renamed) I got this in a set from TK Maxx last weekend. It came with 4 lip glosses and 4 lipsticks which I split with my friend. This is really nice to wear, it isn't sparkly or shimmery but just glossy.
I do feel like I am missing some things and could live without some but I think as I start to wear make up every day more or less I think it's good for me to rotate and try and find what products I love and actually finish a make up item for once.
