‹ April 2014 Favourites ›30.4.14
On the makeup front, I've been reaching for the Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes in Fuller Fudge quite often for a darker everyday look. I apply it to the lids straight out of the bullet without a primer underneath and blend the edges out with a fluffy brush. By the end of the day it will all still look perfect, despite having oily eyelids. This simple look is typically finished off with a light application of NARS Luster on the cheeks.
To take the makeup off at the end of the day, I've been enjoying using the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm to thoroughly cleanse the skin without leaving it stripped. I scoop out a small amount of it and massage it all over my face until it turns into an oil. I then splash it off with warm water and pat my face dry. My skin is left soft and clean, ready for the rest of my nighttime skincare routine.
Keeping my overall look quite neutral this month, I have been reaching for OPI Samoan Sand for a polished look. You really can't go wrong with a nude polish that actually makes your hands look healthy. This shade goes with everything and I just can't stop repainting it.
In addition to a quick manicure on the weekends for a pamper session, I also like to use a body scrub to keep my skin smooth. The LUSH Rub Rub Rub shower scrub leaves the skin smooth and smelling lovely. The mix of floral and citrus scents make me feel relaxed and ready for a good night of sleep.
