In approximately a few weeks time I’m going to reach a landmark in my life. As it’s something that’s never happened in my life before thought it deserved a mention over here, despite my lack of beauty blogger status. I’ve never finished a make up product. Sure, I’ve had mascara’s and eyeliners dry up on me, but I’ve never managed to get all the way through a product before that happens, nor have I ever had a ‘oh god, I’ve hit pan’ moment. At the moment I have one product that is getting pretty close to the end of it’s life, and it’s purely because I can’t stop wearing it.
In terms of what I put on my face on a daily basis, I keep it pretty simple. I do some evening out, some covering up and a tad of lengthening/volumising of the lashes. Sometimes I also tame the brows, but I like to get it all sorted and presentable in a very timely manner. Because I keep most of my face fairly basic, I often like a little bit of sumthin’ on my lips and this is where my secret weapon comes into play. Most beauty fanatics will spend a lot of time searching for the illusive my-lips-but-better lipstick/gloss that you can pop and run out the door in a few seconds flat. My favourite is a L’Oreal Privee in the colour Eva’s Nude. Although I was dubious about the colour at first (I definitely don’t have the similar golden tones of Eva Longoria – pale is the key word over here) but it literally hasn’t left my lips! So much so that I might have to buy a new one soon, which as I mentioned before, is a record in my books.
