NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Daily Face: Neutral As Usual

Last week something pretty exciting happened - Josh finally rescued my MAC quad from behind our wardrobe. It had taken a tumble months ago and I hadn't been able to use it since - not due to lazyness, but spiders. It's now back in my possession and I couldn't resist using Grain and Charcoal Brown to create a neutral eye look - accompanied by a good contour of the cheeks, a pinky peach blush and a nude lip.

I've also continued to give the Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet a bit of loving - I love the matte finish but there's this pesky eczema patch on my forehead that's giving me some serious grief with even the most dewy of foundations - so I stand no chance with this one. Roll on summer when I'm oilier than a portion of bad pub chips - the PLV will be my best friend. At the moment a squidge of the Dior Glow Maximiser Light Boosting Primer (hello longest name ever) is helping to set things right.

  1. Might it be a good idea to stop wearing foundation until the eczema clears up? I know it's then the issue of it being on show and icky etc, but in my experience when I stopped wearing make up over my patches, it cleared up pretty quickly compared to with make up :) Those sunglasses in the make up pics are gorgeous x

  14. Ha! What a saga about your MAC palette. Your eyes look amazing, though. And Tipsy looks gorgeous on you; it's been on my wishlist for quite some time.

  38. Omg, I swear your eye liner and eye brows are always perfect!
    I think you look more like Tiffany Dupont (she played Franny in an old ABC show "Greek") than Lily Collins!
