Beauty Review: Beauty Products Resurrected

For the past few months I've been doing the same make-up look a). because I don't have time to try a new look everyday and b) because it's been working for me. I've been using Benefit's Rush Hour on my lips and cheeks and swiping Nars' Stolen Kisses gloss over top. I simply love both products and get compliments every time I wear them.

Over the weekend, I had a client come in to get her make-up done for her birthday and I used products on her that I hadn't used on myself in a long time. I almost forgot I had them! Yesterday it was so nice and sunny (finally!) out and I decided I wanted to give my make-up a little more colour and radiance. I applied my Benefit bronzer in Hoola
to my cheeks, forehead, nose and chin.

I then dabbed on Tarte's cheek stain in Tipsy on the apples of my cheeks. I forgot how much I loved the sheer coral-pink flush it gave me and the yummy apricot scent.

On my lips I decided I wanted a nice juicy colour so I swiped on Benefit's Benetint Pocket Pal tint and gloss and instead of using the clear gloss it comes with I applied M.A.C.'s Lipgelee in Dewy Jube. My lips looked a luscious cheery red.

On the eyes, I kept it simple using Nars' Cream Eyeshadow in Corfu as a base and applied M.A.C.'s limited edition Mineralize SkinFinish in Shimpagne on the center of the eye and in the inner corner. I also used it to highlight my cheekbones and under eye to give me a beautiful glow. I finished the look off with tons of mascara.

It was fun digging up old favourites and switching up my look for a change. It's almost like having something new again. Try going through your make-up kit and find products that you can revive and make new again!

Joy, I just wanted to say that I love the mineralize skinfinish. It's great to add an extra glow to a dull looking face. I use it to highlight my cheekbones, where the sun would normally hit it. =)
