Inglot AMC Bronzing Powder|Soap&Glory Glow Job|Illamasqua Hollow.
As much as I love my pale skin it can be hard to find make-up products that suit it, especially contouring products. A lot of the highstreet brands are too orange, or muddy on my skin but I have three in my collection which are great for chiselling out the cheekbones.
Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow – £17.50
If I could only recommend one product it would be the Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow, the main selling point of this is the colour, it’s a gorgeous taupe colour so creates the idea of a shadow on the face instead of a block of orange. It is super creamy and blends easily using either your fingers or a brush – I love applying this with my fingers as I can create a really natural contour.
Inglot AMC Bronzing Powder in 80 – £17.00
If you are more into a powder formula then I love the Inglot Bronzing Powder. It’s a collection of five different shades that can be used individually or altogether which is how I prefer to apply it. It has a very subtle glow to it but still works to contour with but what I love is how natural it looks once applied to the skin. Great pigmentation and lasting power.
Soap&Glory Glow Job – £11.00
This is actually a facial fake tanner but works perfectly as a cream contour, the darkest out of my three choices its great for extreme contouring and warming up of the face. It applies as a white cream but as it is blended – this is best done with your fingers, the micro beads inside burst to change the colour of the product into a natural tan. It sounds very scientific but its an amazing product.

L’Oreal Volume Million Excess Mascara|Inglot AMC Bronzer |17 Blusher |Collection Extreme Liner|Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick|Maybelline Colour Tattoo Leather Effect |Maybelline The Eraser Eye Concealer |Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation.
This has been my go to make up look recently I love the colour combination of the teal on the eyes and the mauve pink on the lips.
Currently using up my Maybelline Fit Me! foundation as it’s a little too dark for my skin tone but it gives a great medium coverage and blends really nicely I just wish they had it one shade lighter. Too conceal I used my Maybelline The Eraser Eye; this is an amazing high coverage concealer which blends really well and hides bags as well as blemishes. I know a lot of people don’t like the sponge but it doesn’t bother me at all. On my cheeks I have an old favourite 17 Blusher in Plum Puff a classic pink for the cheeks that brightens and adds colour paired with Inglot AMC Bronzer in 76 this is a great matte bronzer for contouring.
The eyes are super simple; as a base I used the Maybelline Colour Tattoo Leather Effect in Creamy Beige which gives the eyeliner something to grip of but also gives a subtle sweep of colour on the lids. The eyeliner is this amazingly inexpensive felt tip liner from Collection, I love the teal colour as it really makes the eyes pop. For mascara I used the L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Excess which is a great mascara for both length and volume with the added plus of being waterproof.
On my lips is my current favourite lipstick Rimmel Vintage Pink it’s a Moisture Renew formula so is super hydrating and creamy packed full of pigment – think M.A.C Cremesheen. It’s more of a mauve than a pink but it compliments the teal so well.
