* NARS dual intensity blush – PR gift
Another month, another instalment of the monthly base series and there isn’t a tinted moisturiser in sight. I don’t think tinted moisturisers will ever fall from my makeup brain pedestal but for now, I’m in love with Bobbi Brown’s foundation stick. I love it for how ‘sophisticated’ it is for a base product as it’s made from a blend of emollients which keep my skin looking fresh and bright and skin tone correcting pigments to provide that little bit of coverage. The way I apply and use it achieves a sheer, almost transparent base but you can easily build this up to a medium coverage.
I have a post coming soon all about the NARS dual intensity blushes as I was kindly given two of them and they are stunning! I love using the peachy shade as a subtle highlight just near my temples and on the tops of my cheekbones. The colour pay off isn’t immense but I kinda prefer it that way.
Milani’s luminoso blush is a much talked about product in the blogger-sphere and I picked it up quite a while ago now but have recently fallen back in love with it. I always tend to reach for this on those brown smokey eye days because I can never not wear blush but at the same time, I don’t want to go CRAY.
What foundation are you reaching for the most this month? On the hunt for a new one, no surprise there! Jess x
