Hello!! So I got some NYX blush in Taupe which is, as I’ve been told by Coffee_pls, the best powder product for contouring, especially for lighter skin. It’s cool toned, like a shadow, it’s also matte so it doesn’t pick up light.
I didn’t go too heavy on the contour because I was with family today and I was worried that they would notice and say I was wearing too much makeup.
I also did minor contouring on my nose,
which I don’t think I’ll ever really do, I like my nose the way it is.
(ignore the lighting change between the photos, the first one was taken with my front camera and the second was taken with a digital camera).
-Smashbox color correcting primer
-MAC concealer NW15
-Revlon Colorstay Foundation
-NYX powder blush in ‘Taupe’ to contour cheekbones and nose
-NYX powder blush in ‘Apricot’
-Coastal Scents 88Palette Ash brown shade in brows
-UD shadows in ‘Baked’, ‘Sin’, ‘Virgin’ and ‘Lost’
-NYX Gel Liner in ‘Jet Black’
-Milani Power Lip Gloss in Macaroon
I love it! I don’t feel self conscious like I have before when I’ve worn bronzer, it matches my skin tone and while a tad dramatic, it’s not too crazy to be an everyday look (although I definitely won’t contour every day.)
Also today is my Mum’s birthday! If you’re reading this, happy birthday Mummy!!
