Capsule Make-up Collection
Instead of foraging through my boxes, I decided I would condense a small number of items down into one make-up bag, which I thought would be more tricky than it actually was. Like any other beauty enthusiast, I have a lot of beauty bits, and sometimes it gets overwhelming every morning deciding which products I would like to paint my face with. Creating a small collection has been a great way to make me trial everything I own. I switch my bag up every week or so, maybe less often if I don't have much on other than work and sometimes I only swap a few things, like mascara or foundation. The majority of times, I switch up the lipstick I am wearing just to spice things up a little, however have whittled my collection down to 10 or so that are suitable for the season. This week my capsule collection is the one above and I thought I would do a quick run through of the products included.
My base (apart from foundation and blush) pretty much stays the same, this week I have been using the GOSH Primer Plus+* for hydration and the NARS All-Day Luminous Weightless Foundation*, which is my 'go-to' for long work days; while the L'Oréal Lumi Magique has been a dark circle saviour when tired in the morning. To contour and highlight I have been sticking with these two Rodial* products, while this week's blush of choice has been the B. Sweet Whipped Blush* in Peach (out in April). For eyes I have been creating a number of looks from the Makeup Revolution Salvation Palette as it can keep my make-up looking different for a number of weeks; as well as using the Benefit Rollerlash* mascara. For my eyebrows, I have been really enjoying this Rodial Eye Sculpt * mousse since I had my eyebrows shaped at Blink (great btw, if you were wondering). This week's lipstick of choice is another from the upcoming B. Sweet collection: shade Orange Bloom*, which is a perfect combo with the blush.
I think limiting myself to such a small range of products has been really interesting, it's helped me find multiple uses for products and encourages me to create a number of different looks each day. Do you like to do the same?
