FOTD with some favourites

Last Saturday evening we went to a friend's wedding, and with the baby happily hanging out at the grandparents' place it meant that I could finally wear a bright lipstick again (remember, I hardly wear them now). I actually didn't have much time to get ready so I turned to my trusty old favourites that take no time at all to make me look glam.

Here are the favourites I'm referring to:
  • Illamasqua blush in Tremble - After Naked Rose, Tremble is my next favourite Illamasqua blush. Full review here.
  • Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadow in Ebloui - I bought this cheap at a blog sale and is one of my go to eyeshadows. It's one of those perfect shades that looks perfect worn on its own all over the lid. In this look I'm wearing it on its own blended on the lid up to the crease.
  • Classics Lipstick in #227 - I bought this a couple of years ago from Armenia. I think it cost around $2. I absolutely LOVE this colour, but unfortunately I haven't been able to track down the brand since, or manage to find a good dupe for it.

The full makeup breakdown is:

MUFE HD Foundation in #120
MAC MSFN powder in Medium
Illamasqua blush in Tremble
Benefit Hoola Bronzer to contour

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre eyeshadow in Ebloui
Maybelline Great Lash LOL Mascara in Blackest Black
Australis VoluptaLash Comb Mascara in Black (I like to layer two different mascaras, one for volume and one for length).

Classics Lipstick in #227

I really made no effort with my hair at all. I just left it in a messy bun with my fringe parted in the middle... which is pretty much how I wear my hair now 95% of the time. (Pic taken with flash)

  4. Love that lipstick! Have you tried Lime Crime Airborne Unicorn?

    1. Hi Sarah, I have Airborne Unicorn but it's too light and blue based in comparison to the Classics lippy. I'll have to keep searching!

  8. I love the colour of this lipstick!! It reminds me a lot of MAC's "Up the Amp" which is one of my favourites!! :-))))

    1. I love Up the Amp as well, it's a great autumn shade. But unfortunately it's much darker than this one I'm wearing... I've been looking everywhere but can't find a good dupe for it. Oh well... will keep searching, as this one is about to run out!

  9. You look gorgeous as always hun and I'm glad that you and hubby got to spend some nice time together! I use the following products to 'glam up' when I'm in a hurry: MAC Dame blush, MAC eye kohl in Teddy, Estee Lauder eyeshadow in Lilac and Napoleon Perdis lipstick in Aphrodite- not all at once though!
