Currently Loving 07: The Beauty Edition

24 May 2015

 It's been what feels like an absolute age since I last felt motivated to share a beauty post. So when I came to gather together goodies for the latest addition to my (rather neglected) Currently Loving series, I surprised myself by solely selecting makeup. Here's the roundup of my recent favourites.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation has become my base of choice since I started using it twelve months ago. I'm on my third tube, and will definitely be stocking up in Florida. This foundation provides a flawless, airbrushed base, my skin looks healthy but more matte than I tend to favour. To combat that, I use this in combination with my NARS 413 BLKR Illuminator which I've previously reviewed in a post here. None of my other powder/cream highlighters are really being used, as this adds a beautiful glow to the skin, and helps to chisel out some form of cheekbone.  The final base product in this edition is my beloved MAC Pro Longwear Concealer. I ran out of this recently, and as soon as I repurchased it I noticed what a difference it does actually make to my under eye area. I couldn't be without it.

Lately I've been a little fickle when it comes to eyebrow products. Pencils, powders, I've been giving them all a go. After returning to my Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade, I can confirm that I won't be straying again any time soon. I love the fullness that this product gives my brows, and for want of a better word, it's so pliable. I can apply this product to sit exactly where I need it to, so that I end up with well shaped brows. Concluding my current favourites is MAC Lip Pencil in Whirl. Yes, I gave in to the Kylie Jenner hype, and added this pencil to my order. I've never really been a liner fan before now, I own a couple but never bother to use them. However, I absolutely love the shade of Whirl, it compliments my natural lip tone really well, and I can finally cheat an extra little bit of fullness without looking OTT. Et voila: five products for a 'my face but better' look that I've been favouring lately.


  1. Great products :)

  2. The Tarte foundation sounds incredible! I've heard a lot about the brand but never had a chance to try it myself.

    Lovely post :)

  3. The MAC Pro Longwear concealer is so lovely and looks beautiful under the eyes!

  4. I love the Tarte foundation too! Although I agree it can be a bit too matte so I tend to brighten it up as well. The Dipbrow Pomade is my holy grail! x

  5. I think this is among the most vital info for me. And i am glad reading your article. But want to remark on some general things, The site style is great, the articles is really great : lawn designs 2015
