It’s cold and I can’t be arsed, I’m just going to put that out there. I have so much time for doing my makeup in Dubai but here, not so much.
Why? Well, it’s cold like I said, and I have limited space and an 18 month old who wants me to watch Paw Patrol with him every five minutes. I have resorted to a slap/dash method with my favourite YSL City Drive palette, YSL foundation (which feels really hydrating now that my skin is like the desert), a bit of Bobbi Brown Kohl Pencil on the lashes and Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Stick in Bronze everywhere else.
New in: Thick and Fast Mascara by Soap and Glory. I wanted to love it because of the huge wand but, I don’t. It coats the lashes nicely but I like borderline offensive volume and clumpiness and it doesn’t give me that. Kiss Ass Concealer though, well that’s a whole other story. I absolutely love it. Lovely, dewy medium coverage and it lasts ages plus there are two shades in the pan to brighten and cover. Yay!
Lastly, a quick application of Clarins face and blush powder to contour/bronze/whatever. Such a nice product, so matte and gorgeously natural on the skin. Here’s my finished mug;
Obviously, I’ve completely given up on my hair. I just can’t be dealing with it here. I’ll make myself look half decent again when I get back to Dubai. Promise!
Now – on to more serious matters. Shopping!
I’m hitting Boots tomorrow and I’m determined to find Eysilix, V05 Give Me Texture, some new Revlon products and more Essie/Nails Inc. I may also have to pay a visit to Debenhams and er, Brown Thomas. The Bobbi Brown Be Bold blush is calling my name and I also need some brow products from MAC that I’ve run out of.
Stay tuned! I think I’ll do one massive haul video during the week instead of 17 million posts 🙂
