MAKE UP BAG BIG HITS


Well, what can I say. I finally caved.
Charlotte Tilbury's Wonder Glow [£38]

As you know I've been a fan of Charlotte Tilbury's line since it launched, but Wonder Glow was the one product I felt was a little overpriced. Then I began lusting over naturally glowy skin I was seeing all over the internet and knew it had to be done.

It's a multi-tasker that can be used on it's own, under foundation, mixed with foundation or over foundation as a liquid highlighter. I usually use it as a prime to create a well prepped, glowy base as we all know the secret behind flawless makeup is the prep.

It's lightweight, versatile for all skin tones and has a gorgeous golden undertone. There is lots science behind it but some stand out ingredients are rosehip and camellia oils for moisture, BioNymph Peptide Complex to stimulate collagen production (keeping the skin plump) and it's paraben-free.

Once you get over the price, this product does go a long way and genuinely creates the loveliest base. If you are looking for something to boost your radiance on those glum days, this is the one for you.


Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation [£31]

For a long time I did not understand the fuss about this foundation. I had tried a few samples YEARS ago but never found the right shade for me. Now I'm having to back track on all the hate I've given this foundation and swallow my pride because I AM SOLD.

The Estee Lauder consultant matched me to the shade 3W1 Tawny, which is slightly warmer than my natural skin tone but work well, particularly as we come into the summer months.

What's so good about it?
  • The coverage is medium to full but doesn't cake on the skin
  • It will work for most skin types - just not really dry or flakey skin
  • It's super long lasting, great for those long tiring days in the office 
  • It comes in 15 shades so you are bound to find one that suits you
How do they look together?

The photo below was taken in natural light (right next to my window) and hasn't been edited AT ALL to show you exactly how they look together.

I used the Wonder Glow as a primer and then go in with a decent amount of Double Wear which I blend out with a buffing brush and I absolutely LOVE the results.
