Over the past few weeks I've been trying some new products and have dug out some old ones I thought deserved some more love, so today I'm sharing the makeup look I've been going for lately...

I've been loving my Milk Makeup Blur Stick | £30.50 | full review | lately! I get that a silicone-based primer isn't going to be for everyone but I personally like this a lot. I tend to use it with a fresh base, so I don't mind that it has more of a matte finish, however if I don't want that look; I tend to just use this in my problem areas where I have more visible pores over the top of a more skincare-focussed primer. It has an amazing smoothing effect, blurring fine lines and pores. 

In terms of other base products; I still love the Milk concealer from my last post. However my go-to foundation and powder have recently had a bit of a switch-up. I always seem to come back to my Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Light Foundation (Shade 8) | £32 | full review | because it does what I want an everyday foundation to do! It's radiant, it has a light-medium coverage, it looks like skin and it perfects my complexion. It's also pretty long-lasting and doesn't go super-shiny around my t-zone during the day. I don't really like to wear a lot of coverage just on an everyday basis to work, so this is pretty perfect! I've also been seriously impressed with the Becca Hydra-Mist Set and Refresh Powder* (Translucent) | £32. I received this from Cult Beauty as part of a focus on Australian beauty and never would have thought to try it myself. This is a translucent setting powder with such a unique formula - it's hard to describe and I don't know how they created it! It has a really cooling, refreshing effect once applied to the skin. It's incredibly fine and near-enough invisible on the skin and does an amazing job of keeping the shine at bay and stopping the concealer under my eyes from creasing.

I've been using the ColourPop Double Play Pressed Powder Cheek Duo (discontinued) | $16 | full review. This isn't available any more, but you can buy each of the shades individually here and here. This highlighter is seriously blinding and intense and comes in a warm but almost frosty champagne peach and the blusher (one of my absolute favourites given the makeup tones I usually go for) is a warm muted peach-tan nude. This blusher has the smoothest matte formula ever and lasts so well on my skin! In terms of bronzer - I'm still all about Fenty, which I talked about last time.

My go-to lip shade lately has been the MAC Matte Lipstick in Strip Me Down (discontinued) | £17.50. I'm seriously worried because this warm beige-brown nude is my perfect shade and I'm almost all out of it and I doubt MAC are ever bringing it back! Despite being a matte - the formula is so creamy and comfortable. It's the shade I automatically reach for when I'm wearing a warm makeup look.

For eyeshadow I've recently rediscovered my Pat McGrath Mothership Sublime Bronze Mini Eyeshadow Palette | £50. Pat's eyeshadow formula is one of the best out there - unlike the Natasha Denona palette I tried; I think this product is worth every single penny. This is the perfect collection of warm eyeshadow tones for me. The matte is super-pigmented and long-lasting but still blends very nicely! The shimmers pack a serious punch too - they're incredibly opaque and have a stunning finish that stays dewy-looking and metallic all day. Ther swatches don't even do this palette justice; it honestly is incredible.

Finally, I recently picked up the Milk Makeup Kush Brow Fibre Gel (Grind) | £15. So far I'm really liking this! I usually use Glossier's tinted brow gel, however this comes in more shades, so I was keen to try it and see how it compares. It's actually quite pigmented, so you have to make sure you don't have too much product on the brush when you go in with it. I like how the brush is so tiny, I like the colour this adds to my brows and it gives a nice soft hold, also makes my brows look thicker without feeling like there's a load of product in them!

What makeup have you been reaching for lately?
