Contouring palettes, Stila blushers and new MAC cosmetics

Last week I was really poorly and despite feeling better than I have in months my body clearly wasn’t having any of it and I broke out in horrendous shingles down my body.  Whilst the discomfort was unbearable it did mean that the nights I couldn’t sleep I got to browse loads of amazing blogs, YouTube tutorials and magazine articles about new beauty products.  In particular contouring palettes, concealers and spring palettes.

I don’t claim to be any kind of make up expert of rank myself up there as a beauty blogger but I know what I like and I know how I like my makeup to look.  There isn’t a day that goes by without me wearing my make up, it is part of me and I feel polished and professional when I wear it and believe that there is no excuse for not having time to do your make up on a daily basis.  The amount of products on the market now from good coverage BB creams to gorgeous face tanning gels you can add to your moisturiser it is really easy and quick to manage just one or two things in the morning.

Barry M Summer Love Eye Shadow Palette

Addison and I had a trip to the dentist this week and afterwards indulged in a bit of retail therapy with some new make up and nail varnish.  Addison opted for one of the new Rita Ora for Rimmel nail varnishes in a fabulously bright orange which she’s got on her toes this weekend and loves and I fell in love with the new Barry M Summer Love eye shadow palette.

I don’t own much Barry M make up – I like their gel nail varnish put haven’t invested in their make up for a while because I am so stuck on my favourite brand Illamasqua I find it hard to deviate and try a lot of the high street brands.  It’s easy to forget that many of the high street make up brands are great for staying up to date with the latest make up trends and updating your make up box at a fraction of the price of many of the expensive brands.
