Christmas in New York

This is long overdue, but here are my pictures from my trip to New York. I had an amazing week with my Mum and I would love to make another visit. Another post will be coming soon containing all of my experiences moments I enjoyed from my trip!

I hope that when the next time I make a visit, I will be able to take my Nikon D3100 and get some better quality pictures.

My go to Autumn Make-up.

Over the past few years I have been having some eczema issues on my face so I haven’t been able to wear make-up but recently I have combated this problem and I am excited to wear it again! I like to wear simple make-up for day to day and experiment more when I have somewhere to go or some spare time.

I start off with Garnier BB cream in Light for a light, dewy finish. I love BB creams because I have very dry skin so they don’t accentuate the dry patches at all. I also love the Garnier one because it has a good amount of coverage so it evens out my skin tone nicely.

I then powder the edges of my face as I do not get so dry there and I want to bronze up those areas, it makes blending a whole lot easier. I use the Maybelline Fit Me powder.

I bronze up and do a little bit of a cheek and nose contour with Benefit’s Hoola bronzer. I also use the Real Techniques Sculpting brush.

I then highlight the tops of my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose using Benefit’s Watts Up. This is such a gorgeous cream highlight that is quite subtle but you can still see it.

I then moved onto my eyes. I used a mixture of the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette, Urban Decay Naked 2 palette and the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I started with Anaheim from Gwen Stefani in the crease, it’s my favourite crease colour at the minute. I then used Trick from the Naked 3 all over my lid and highlighted the inner corner and brow bone with Bootycall from the Naked 2. I then went back in with Anaheim to blend all of that together.

I finished off the eyes by curling my eyelashes and using the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara.

I then used the Sleek Matte Me Lipstick in Birthday Suit. I like to pair this with a gloss as it is sometimes a little dry on my lips.

To finish off the whole look, I used the Urban Decay Setting Spray in Chill. This is my all time favourite setting spray as it is great for hydrating my dry skin, I just love it!

I hope you enjoyed this look!
