FOTD - Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chick

Base - Evohe Omega 3.6.9 facial oil* (I always use this under my foundation now). Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Illuminator in Angel Mist* used under eyes, in the middle of my forehead and in the middle of my chin). Rimmel Match Perfection 081 Fair Ivory this is my current favourite foundation, looks like skin, I use the shade up from this too depending on my mood. Graftobian Hi-Def Glamour Creme Corrector Palette #30277, my favourite under eye concealer is the Pink Hi-Lite (which counteracts grey or brown) and a tiny touch of the Extra Hi-Lite (light highlighter)). I apply this under my eyes with my ring finger in a light tapping motion, the heat from my finger helps the concealer blend seamlessly. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light was applied using a Real Techniques Powder Brush to set my foundation and also applied with a small blending brush under my eyes to set my concealer.

Eyes - Jordana 12 HR Made To Last eyeshadow pencil 03 Tenacious Brown, as a base, Charlotte Tilbury Rock Chick Palette 02 Enhance shade applied over the lid, and 03 Smoke shade used to darken outer V. Wet n Wild 246 Greed palette, matte peach shade to blend out edges. Jordana 12 HR Made To Last eyeshadow pencil 02 Stay on Black used to line top lash line and create a dramatic wing. Models Prefer Infinite Colour Eye Pencil Nude Appeal on inner corners. Covergirl LashBlast Length on top lashes.

Cheeks- Illamasqua Lover, Dolce & Gabbana The Blush in Tan applied as a cheek contour shade with the Nars Ita brush, these two are perfect companions!

Lips - NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee, Models Prefer Infinite Colour Eye Pencil in Nude Appeal applied to cupids bow and centre of bottom lip.

I have to say I’m loving the Charlotte Tilbury palette, I’ll post some thoughts and swatches later in the week after I’ve had more of a play. I purchased mine from Beautylish and the service was excellent.

Empties

Lush Bath Bomb Sakura - This was part of a birthday present from my besties, it smelled great, made popping candy noises and made my skin feel soft.

Reniu Coconut Body Oil Tiare Infusion - Reniu is the cheaper line put out by Pure Fiji, I’d melt this then rub it all over my bod when I was in the shower or bath. I did get bored of the scent towards the end though. I’d repurchase this but in another scent or in the Pure Fiji line.

Imperial Leather Blue Lagoon Exotic Guava & Champaca shower gel - This smelled great and did the job, not particularly moisturising though but to me that’s pretty normal for a shower gel. 

Original Source Mandarin & Basil shower gel - This was nice, more mandarin than basil, nothing really interesting to say about it.

B&BW Warm Vanilla Sugar - I have to say the amount of fragrance Bath & Body Works use in their products is overkill, this would have been nice if the scent wasn’t so strong.

Evohe Foam Wash* Coconut & Aramanth - Both Eva and I enjoyed this in our baths together, she’d call it the fluffy soap and rub it all over her belly. I enjoyed using this as a soap and also as a shaving cream, it had a nice citrus type scent to it and felt moisturising on my skin.

La Roche Posay Anthelios XL Stick 50 - This was fine, it did the job protecting me from the sun and was convenient to use. I prefer to use mineral/physical sunscreens though. I might buy again just for the ease of use factor.

Grown Alchemist Antioxidant Treatment Serum Rosehip & Camellia Seed - Loved this, I am a complete sucker for facial oils. Would repurchase.

Evohe Omega Body* -This was luscious, full review here.
