February Makeup Menu

february makeup menu,

It's a new month which means a new monthly makeup menu. This year one of my goals is to purchase more makeup products so this month I decided to use more products that I don't usually use and also change my techniques a little bit.

BASE: As we all know, priming is the first step to ensuring that our makeup stays all day. My primer hasn't changed but I do have my eye on the Too Faced Hangover Primer. I don't rub my primer in, this whole month I have been pressing my primer into my skin and I have seen a complete difference in my base. On to my foundation, before I use to use a foundation brush to apply my Clinique Superbalanced foundation and then blend it in with my beauty blender, but this month I've gone back to the drugstore favourites, Real Technique. The Real Technique Buffing Brush has been amazing at giving me a natural, glowy look to my complexion. On to concealing my under eyes, I haven't stopped using the LA Pro Girl Concealer as it's my absolute favourite. I apply this concealer with the applicator under my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, my forehead, chin and around my mouth. 

POWDER: To make sure that my under eyes are set and don't crease throughout the day, I love to use a translucent powder. This month I have been loving the Ben Nye Powders in Banana and Topaz - both are two different shades but I like to alternate between the two. I have been baking my face a bit this month for only 2-3 minutes whilst I apply on my eyeshadow. To set the rest of my face, I use what is left of my MAC Pressed Powder (I'm trying to finish the powder so that I can purchase another one).

EYES/EYEBROWS: For my eyebrows, I have been using a combination of products. To fill in my eyebrows, I use the MUA Eyebrow Pencil and then I clean up my eyebrows with the same concealer. To make sure that my eyebrows are a bit darker, I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Promade . On to my eyes, I like to set it with translucent powder as a primer. I have been obsessed with the Tarte Pretty Paintbox, some of the eyeshadows are about to hit pan so I might need to buy more Tarte products. The shades that I have been loving are "Stained Glass", "Hot Mama" and "Still Life". I can't live without winged liner, so I have been using the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Tropper, I wrote a post about it here in depth. To coat my eyelashes, I have been using the Giorgio Armani mascara in "Eyes To Kill" which is absolutely beautiful! My lashes look gorgeous. 

LIPS: I have been mixing lip products together to create an ombre look. To lightly outline my lips I have been using MAC in Vino which is weird as it's a bit purply but I lightly to it to make my lips look a bit bigger. Using my NYX Butter Lip Gloss in Gingersnap, I apply it all over my lips and in the middle of my lips, I use the Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint to create a fuller lip that is beautifully glossy.
