Saturday Selfie with the Renaissance Palette
I have now declared today as Saturday Selfie thanks to my fantastic Renaissance Palette. I have had problems with sleep all of this week due the acid reflux which has now caused a flare up in the fibromyalgia and also brought on vertigo. It is all a vicious circle so I thought I would stop it in its tracks or try to at the very least.
I decided to get rid of my tired ill looking pained face and slap some make up on. I pretended Tom Cruise has just rang up to see if I’m free later – Who me? yes of course Tom, you can take me out tonight… just excuse me while I place the back of my hand against my forehead all demure like…
So now in the event that Tom is taking me out tonight (I wish) let the make up begin. I will in the future do some little you tube tutorials but I will just mention briefly what I have used for todays look.
Base and Face
I always use a serum, an eye cream and a moisturiser after a good cleanse with Liz Earle products. Smoothed Max Factor primer over my face then used Anastasia Beverly Hills cream contour kit, powder contour kit, bronzer and glow kit for a light strobing – oops almost forgot my translucent face powder for the baking which I love. I will go into more detail with all of this when I do a video version.
First sort out the eyebrows pluck any strays, comb through smooth with a tiny bit of vaseline and get into the right shape then use the powder to fill in and define. Annabelle Renaissance Palette for the eyes – adore this palette. Just because I have been asked my glasses are from Specsavers and they are by Superdry.
My most favourite lipstick ever is Huda Beauty just gorgeous. Lip pencil to match.
Finish off with highlighter and blusher and thats me done. I think next time I will do a before photo and after.
