Today I changed up my makeup routine slightly and so I thought I would log it here and show you guys what I wore today. I haven't done one of these posts in what feels like years, Its something nice to come back to every now & then!

This is just an everyday look, I was running a few errands, not going anywhere fancy and it stayed put all day. I was trying out this foundation for the first time and I quite like it so far! I dont like the smell but it goes after a few minutes. The powder is also new to me - still forming my opinions!

*Quick note - The lighting did wash me out a little! Im constantly battling with lighting haha

Do you like any of these products? Let me know how they've worked for you!

You look so pretty! I really want to try the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, as i've heard a lot of good things about it - plus your skin looks flawless, so i'm definately going to give it a try! The Sleek Brow Kit looks lovely too, just like the Benefit one but a fraction of the price I think! x

Rachel said...

You truly are bloody gorgeous. I've used both the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation (my go to daily base at the mo) and Stay Matte powder and can't fault either of them. I get a lot more use out of the foundation mainly because I rarely touch powder, but it gives me a lovely glow and the added spf is a bonus! Can't say I've noticed a smell though! Hope you begin to enjoy using it as much as I do :)The only slight slight downside I've found is that, using the lightest shade, it is the tiniest bit too dark for me, but I manage to work around it! xx

Your make up is so beautiful, looks really fresh and natural! I love the rimmel powder, but I think their liquid foundations always are a little too yellow for my skin tone :(

charhurst said...

I have been dying to try the wake me up foundation and am about to repurchase the stay matte powder, I've used it for a bout a year but stopped using it because it can be quite drying, do you not have pallettes for the small shadows?

You look gorgeous Sammi!! I love how you do your eye make-up :)
I LOVE the rimmel foundation, works really well for me!! I'm not too keen on the powder though, I know it works really well for Tanya but my skin gets really dry in winter and i find it just shows up on my skin and goes cakey.. especially around my nose.. like it juts sits in the cracks and hard to explain but yeah lol.. i really like the No.7 loose powder :-)

I Love that you use both high end makeup as well as regular drugstore makeup.... to me there is no need to always splurge on the expensive stuff when you can get the same results using a less expensive brand ....xoxo
