Weekly Loves #4

Another weekly favourites comin' at ya. I haven't been too adventurous with my makeup this week and have been mostly going for whatever is quick and easy. 

Firstly, I've been showing some love to my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and on Bronze. I love this product and will use it fairly regularly but, this week in particular, I've been reaching for it quite a lot. This may be because the mornings are getting colder and I am getting far more reluctant to get out of bed, which results in a rushed attempt at slapping makeup on my face and running out the door. This product is great for that as you can basically just swipe it on, apply some mascara and your eyes are done. The colour is a lovely one too- kind of a cool bronze which gives just enough definition for everyday. 

On the days where I've had time to make more effort, I've been reaching for the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette, which is a total dupe for the Urban Decay Naked 3. The rosy tones in the palette are lovely, and are a nice way of incorporating a little bit of colour without straying too far from the neutral comfort zone. I really enjoy using the two lighter shimmery pinks, along with the matte shades, for the day time. The quality of the shadows are great- definitely the best I've tried within this price range. 

A product that I seem to have been using a lot lately is the NYX Blush in Taupe. I wasn't overly sure on this when I bought it, as I thought it looked too grey. I don't know what's changed but, in the last few weeks, I have been using this blush to contour with every time I've worn makeup. Having fair skin, I find a lot of contour powders and bronzers too dark/orange for me. This blush is a very grey toned brown, so it works perfectly at mimicking the natural shadow on pale skin, especially if you have more cool tones in your skin like myself. 

Lastly, this week I've been taking the opportunity to wear what is one of my favourite lipsticks ever. I've been neglecting my Mac Lipstick in Plumful all summer, as I feel like it's more of an autumn/winter colour. However, the autumn season is almost upon us so I think it's high time I brought it out again. I love this lipstick- it's a gorgeous plummy-pink colour which is actually quite versatile. You can sheer it out and wear it as a work appropriate day time colour, or you can build up the intensity and wear it for the evening. Either way, it's awesome.
