Face of the Day- Bitch Perfect

I wore this make up look last weekend and I liked it so much that I wanted to share it with you all. The look is centred around this quick and easy smoky brown/bronze eye. I used the shade Factory from the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette which I blended out with the matte shade Limit. This created a really easy multi-dimensional smoky eye. I then added some dark brown pencil liner from No7 to my lower lash line and water line and blended it out before adding some of the Factory shade on top of the pencil. 


I finished off the eyes by curling my lashes with my new eyelash curler from Eyeko which is amazing at making my eyes look wider. I think I prefer it slightly to my Shu Uemura one. I used one of my favourite mascaras, Volume Clubbing by Bourjois which is great for anyone who loves voluminous lashes.


I wanted to have natural but flawless skin so I used one of my current favourite base combinations of the L'Oréal Nude Magique Blur Cream (which is very similar to Benefit The Porefessional) and No7 Stay Perfect foundation which gives a little more coverage than the Superlight version that I reviewed recently. The Blur Cream is great for blurring pores and smoothing out the texture of the skin, I like to use it just on the centre of my face. I've found the key to the Stay Perfect foundation is to use less product and you end up with a very natural but even finish to your skin. These two products make a great combination for days when your skin needs a little more help to look it's best. 


My dark circles weren't too bad so i just used a little bit of the No7 Instant Radiance Concealer under my eyes and at the sides of the bridge of my nose to lighten up the area. It's such an easy product to use, it blends effortlessly onto the skin and doesn't crease or look too heavy. 


I finished off my skin by using a stunning new product from YSL, Les Sahariennes, a balm-powder that gives a sun-kissed perfecting glow to the skin. I used it to contour my face a little bit, along my forehead and nose and across my cheeks in lieu of blush. I won't say too much about it now because I plan on writing an in-depth review before it's release on May 27th, but after just a few uses I'm already smitten. 

I didn't use powder because I didn't need the make up to last that long and it allowed my skin to look sun-kissed and glowy. 

To finish off the look, I used one of the most gorgeous nude lipstick's I've ever used, Bitch Perfect by Charlotte Tilbury. First of all the formula of these lipsticks applies beautifully and I've found it to last very well for such a creamy texture. The shade is perfection, as the name suggests. I feel like this would suit every skin tone it's just one of those colours. It just makes me want more of Charlotte's lipsticks. If you're on the fence about investing in one of her lipsticks, let me just gently nudge you over the fence. You won't regret it.

  1. Hi, Emma! You look naturally beautiful in this make-up combination. It was wonderful to see you over on my blog this morning. I'm glad you could join us for Margaret's 103rd birthday celebration. Thank you very much for your kindness, dear friend Emma, and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    1. Thanks Tom! Still can't believe Margaret is 103! What a woman! :)

  2. Stunning look! Your skin is flawless.

  3. That shade of lipstick is such a flattering everyday pink on you! I haven't tried any of the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks, but I would love to. It's funny because I recently used both Limit and Factory together for my eyes last week - I guess we were on the same wavelength there :)

    1. They're a great combination! Oh you have to try a CT lipstick, not to be an enabler or anything but you would adore!

  4. wow your eyelashes are amazing!
