I wanted to bring a foundation with me that would be suitable for both day and night; one that would provide me with good coverage but not go patchy or cakey throughout the day. Therefore I opted for the recently launched COLLECTION Illuminating Touch Foundation*, which provides all these things. For powder, I have been reaching for the BareMinerals Mineral Veil*, which I haven't used in a while and forgot how much I really liked it. It's a lightweight translucent powder that provides a sheer veil of powder that sets make-up without attaching to dry patches or looking patchy. I am usually extremely loyal to my Soap & Glory Solar Powder, but recently I have been reaching for the Make Up For Ever Pro-Bronze Fusion*, which is a very subtle bronzer that I feel has a cooler tone in comparison to my S&G one. What I do love about the cooler weather setting in is opting for a darker, plum-hued blush to really emphasise the 'I've been stood out in the cold but still look suitably blushed' look. The Sleek Blush in Pomegranate is an extremely pigmented berry pink tone that blends well for a velvety finish - this can also be used as an eyeshadow, which is fab. Although I am trying to transition my make-up look to be more seasonal, I cannot leave behind a highlighting product, ever. The Rodial Instaglam Illuminating Powder* is my 'go to', and I have even hit pan so am trying to not be too heavy handed with it in fear of it running out.
For eyes, I have gravitated back to my trusty Benefit RollerLash*, as it is the only mascara I seem to have at the moment that actually lifts and defines, as opposed to the thick, voluminous lashes that I have been flaunting in recent weeks. For lips, I have not put down Fleur de Force's Written in The Stars Lip Gloss* since I got it, and it is the perfect shade for everyday, and the ideal top coat for a more prominent lipstick/liner in the evening. I also want to mention how pretty (and rather good) these Primark Eyelash Curlers are, despite the fact that I only bought them because of their pretty reflecting colours.
