superficiality seems to be my speciality today, so i shall continue the theme and tell you what make-up ive been wearing on a daily basis recently, BECAUSE IM SURE YOU ALL WANT TO KNOW.

in regards to the face we have; Maybelline sun glow drops, Laura Mercier silk creme foundation in rose ivory, MAC select spf15 foundation in NW25 and MAC select moisture cover in NW25. we also have MAC select cover-up in NC30, Body Shop blusher no. 4, a Ruby and Millie foundation brush and an Elite blusher brush.

out of all these products almost all are my HG - blusher and MAC select moisture cover aside. ive been wearing the laura mercier on and off for about a year and i highly recommend it if you have less-than-perfect skin - it gives flawless coverage, blends beautifully and although steep at £32, you only need a teeny amount so a tube lasts for months.
however, it can be slightly too heavy for summer; cue the MAC select foundation. this is the lightest coverage foundation ive had in YEARS and i think is lightish-medium coverage, with buildable coverage - this was my summer foundation and let my skin BREATHE even in the most humid and hottest of weathers.
ive been mixing these two foundations together, altering the proportions slightly depending on the state of my poor skin (tho recently its been more MAC select foundation than the Laura Mercier!)

the sun glow drops are also a godsend - using my foundation brush (Ruby and Millie btw, most excellent) i apply this all over my face after my foundation to give this gorgeous glow.

lastly, the select cover-up is my ultimate HG concealer - it covers a multitude of sins that sometimes the select moisture cover cannot defeat and lasts almost all day without reapplication (in fact, that tube is my second tube and i NEVER repeurchase concealors..!)

as for my eyes, recently ive just been applying mascara - Benefit Badgirl Lash for the first coat and Clinque high impact mascara for the second, which gives lushly full, seperated lashes and makes for a more natural look. when prompted, i might brush on Rimmel's Exaggerate eyeliner in brown (softer than black and this particular one lasts all day without smudging and is a pleasure to apply).

oooh, i also ordered some Missha BB cream today from Ebay and im REALLY excited about it...i shall do a proper post on it once it has arrived and ive have used it for a while.
