I thought it was about time that I put some make up on - kidney stones or no kidney stones, sometimes a little bit of make up is just what a girl needs!
I started with a new base - the beautiful EX1 in F200, which is just lovely, reminding me a little of the raved about YSL foundation (too oily for my skin) applied with my Sigma F82 of course. The foundation itself is just lovely, I will do a separate review, but at the moment it seems to tick all my boxes!
I then proceeded to shove all of this lot on top:
The Wild About Beauty Mattifying Balm was used as a primer - this stuff is just beautiful pressed onto the skin with the sponge that is included, plus you can touch up using it too! I then applied the EX1 foundation in F200 as seen before, and powdered with the MUA Loose Powder, which is pretty much my go-to loose powder these days: a lovely yellow tone, and a verrrrrrrry finely-milled texture. Cheekbones were sculpted with the dream that is Kevyn Aucoin's Sculpting Powder in Medium and the Real Techniques Setting Brush, and Sleek's Pixie Pink Blush was applied to the top of cheekbones for the Barbie-toned flush that I love! L'oreal's Infallible Shadow in Endless chocolate was blended all over the lid of my eye, with the Sculpting Powder in the crease, lined with Rimmel's Scandaleyes Eyeliner in Black, and underneath the lower lash line I blended the UNE Sfumato Eyes Pencil in S26 (a soft grey), and finally lashes curled and doused in Maybelline the Colossal Volume Express. Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnd last of all, all was set with my Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder, and looked something like this:
