update_makeupwhatsinmakeupI can’t believe it’s February already, and that it’s my birthday next week, eek! As the weather has been pretty pants plus we’ve been really busy with work, seeing family and saying goodbye to friends moving away from London, I just haven’t had the time to blog. 

I can however share some of my latest doddles I’ve been working on and thought I would update you all on what’s in my make-up bag and of course in illustration form, it’s so much more fun this way. Over the last couple of months (mainly thanks to great Christmas gifts) I’ve picked up some new make-up items.  Some items you’ll have seen before in this post.update_makeup02Laying the foundations!

My current favourite foundation is Hello Flawless by Benefit, and my powder of choice is Chanel. I still use the MAC concealer but find Boi ing by benefit is better, mainly for use of control and colour match to my skin tone.

 That’s the base sorted now to the cheeks – I go between my MAC blusher and the sleek contour pallet as it creates definition especially when mixed with the old classic that is High Beam, for perfectly defined and highlighted cheekbones. 

update_makeup03All about the lips!

My lipstick collection has grown somewhat recently – I now have at least four MAC lipsticks  in different shades of red, and my favourite Chanel lippie (I’m hoping to add another into my collection for my Birthday). Also in my collection I have a Sephora lip stain and a dark plum coloured NARS lippie. 

I’ve been trying to mix up my daily lip stick choice and wear some thing different from my favourite go to Chanel! Another daily love is the Bene Balm from Benefit, it’s so smooth, soft and moisturising for my lips, perfect to stop them from cracking  in this cold weather!update_makeup01All illustration created by me πŸ™‚

    How did you do the cartoon make up ???? Wow !! Teach me how !!

      I did fashion illustration at university and it’s just my natural illustration style. I guess it’s a thing you have to try and see what you’re style of drawing would be.

    everyone is telling you this but your Illustrations are fantastic!

      Thank you, I love drawing and creating them. Sadly my illustration career never took off but creating them for myself is still pretty amazing.

      • July 17, 2017 / 10:03 am

        There is still time so just keep creating them for you and someone or some company will come along and see how brilliant you are!
