It’s not often I’m known for stepping out sans liquid liner, but more recently I’ve become far more comfortable without it and my makeup routine is thanking me. Things are speedier and leave more lid space to get creative with eyeshadow – which is where my love for the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Shadow sticks have blossomed.
My base is made up of the Dr Jart Water Fuse BB Cream, the Origins Plantscription Concealer and Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder. Light weight, good coverage and radiant without being too dewy. Brows are made up of my usual Bobbi Brown Brow Kit* with the L’Oreal Brow Artist Plumper as my brow gel replacement of choice (it’s nothing like the Benefit Gimme brow, but the staying power is quite something). And then we have something a little special encased in some rose gold Charlotte Tilbury Goodness: the Bronze & Glow Palette (review here) is my current bronzer of choice, with just a tiny bit of highlighter used in the inner corners of my eyes (because they really are too close together).
For eyes, the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Frozen Quartz is my daily shadow of choice for casual occasions when Bronze Moon is a little too OTT. Paired with the a Clinique Gel Liner smudged along the lash line and a few lashings of the L’Oreal False Lash Teloscopic Waterproof Mascara for that day time false lash effect. It’s soft and fluttery and I’m all over that for spring. Then we wrap it all together with a little duo from Chanel and Rimmel. The Exaggerate Lip Liner in East End Snob, with Chanel’s Rouge Coco Shine in 90/Minute over the top. Sheeny, sheer goodness with a rosey pink hue.
