Weekday me. What's in my makeup bag. Spending ban edition #3

Today's the day. I lasted a full month on a spending ban I placed upon myself. I'm super pleased with myself and my bank account is thanking me too :) It's been difficult. New bits are coming out and autumn is upon us but I'm soldiering through. I finally have a chance to start using makeup that I bought and never even had a chance to swatch yet or to rediscover bits in my collection that I used to love, yet with constant buying, don't get the love and attention they deserve.

This is a 3rd post in my Weekday me series and I have a lot of love from you so I'd like to thank you for your lovely comments, messages and likes :)

Summer is over. Kids are back at school and autumn is slowly creeping in upon us. I created a daytime look that I'm loving at the moment. It's full of shimmer, has a little colour but it's very wearable. It reminds me of a hot summer day so I'm trying to brace not too summery weather with it :)

I decided to give some love to my Naked 2 palette. I have it since Christmas and honestly did not get too much use out of. It's a beautiful palette full of neutral and warm tones. Gorgeous shimmers lead the way here. For this makeup look I used more of cool tones shades from the palette : Tease which is a matte taupe and Verve which is a light taupe shimmer, absolutely gorgeous :) 

As I'm still a little tanned thanks to self tanner I picked up Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation from a drawer. I have it in the lightest shade Ivoire but it's still a little dark for me on my pale days so thought now it's the time to use it up :) I am still on crossroads with this foundation and it requires me to really prep my base as it can cling to dry skin. But with good priming it looks lovely. It's very light, gives good amount of coverage and lasts well on me. I don't set it down with powder as it dries out to nearly powder finish.

To give my face a little shape I've been loving KOBO Matt Bronzing and Counturing Powder. It's light and cool toned. Perfect to give your face a light contour. I have mine in shade Sahara Sand and have been loving it !!! It's a shame about the writing on packaging as I only had it few months and it's already coming off but for a budget product it's ok, I guess. I like the formula, it blends beautifully and it's one of not many bronzers that are true cool tone.

To give my cheeks a little colour and life I've been loving The Matte Blush from Makeup Revolution. The new formula works great for me. This time I picked up Divine which gives me a lovely flush to the cheeks and it's so light :)As with Kobo bronzer the writing on packaging is already coming off, which is a shame, but I really like the product anyway.

Brand new product is my newest purchase (from before I placed spending ban on myself) but only just recently delivered. Thanks to my lovely friend from Poland who bought and sent me some new Ingot bits recently. One of them is Ingot Pure Pigment Eyeshadow is shade 91, from a limited collection Mamma Mia. This is so gorgeous as it's white but also opalescent. It looks like blue in daylight lighting and it's just beautiful. 

I also picked up forgotten Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and on bronze. It's my favourite shade of all and it looks beautifully on it's own. Lasts well, doesn't crease throughout the day. Makes for easiest eye makeup :)

I got MeMeMe Enchanted Eyes in Midnight Storm in one of the Glossyboxes and it's been well loved in the beginning of summer. This time I used the darker blue shade to create the look but I really like this due liner/eyeshadow. It stays on pretty well too on my waterline. 

Mascara of choice is still Clinique High Impact Mascara and as I already have a review on it, I still love it. It gives me length and volume but also looks very natural. Still my big love at the moment.

I created a light daytime look with a hint of colour. Top lid is all about Colour Tattoo in On and on bronze that I applied with a  fluffy brush. I blended it out in the crease using Tease from Naked 2 palette and added a little Blackout to my eyelashes line, not to line them per se but just to add volume to lashes :) I lined my waterline with Enchanted Eyes, the darker blue shade from the due and blended it out underneath with Tease again. I then added Verve to ensure final look is as sparkly as possible. I added Mamma Mia pigment to my inner corners blending it slightly towards the middle. Finished lashes with 2 coats of Clinique mascara and brushed through brows with I Tint My Brows in Fairest by Makeup Revolution.

My base is flawless thanks to the Maybelline foundation. I added contour by using Kobo Bronzer and little colour from Divine by Makeup Revolution. 

There you have the finished look. It has a lot of shimmer, reminds me of beautiful sunny days. I hope you like it. It's perfect for daytime and I love it.

Thank you for reading.
