WOMF #1 | Everyday Summer Makeup

Now that we are finally starting to see some sunshine, I've been ditching the heavy coverage foundations in favour of lighter base products. The Bourjois CC Cream provides a lightweight coverage with a beautiful, luminous finish. The oil free formula means that it doesn’t look greasy on the skin, and the addition of an SPF 15 makes it the perfect base for the warmer months. To hide any blemishes and dark under eye circles, I like to use the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade vanilla. This provides medium-full coverage, but doesn't cake or crease throughout the day. I then apply a light dusting of the Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot to my t-zone. This translucent powder is perfect for setting my base makeup and helping to keep shine at bay. To add some warmth to my complexion, I've been reaching for the Body Shop Honey Bronzer. I usually shy away from bronzers in fear of resembling an Oompa-Loompa, but this one is much more buildable and less orange toned than some of the others that I’ve tried. For a pop of colour on the cheeks, the Bourjois Cream Blushes have become a staple in my summer makeup routine. 01 is a pretty peachy shade, with a cream to powder finish. Finally, to help me mimic that summer glow, I always like to apply a highlighter to the high points of my face. Benefit High Beam is a liquid highlighter which provides the most beautiful pearlescent glow, without the addition of any shimmer. 

For my eyes, I've been keeping things pretty simple with just a wash of MAC Woodwinked across the lid. I like to apply this warm gold shade with a MAC 239 brush, and then blend out the edges with a MAC 217 for a softer look. I then add plenty of the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara to my top lashes, and the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara to my bottom lashes. Finally, I like to fill in my brows with a small amount of MAC Charcoal Brown Eyeshadow for a soft, natural look.

Lips are probably the part of my makeup routine that I change up the most, but recently I've been getting a lot of wear out of the Maybelline Colour Sensational Shine Gloss in the shade Glorious Grapefruit. This peachy pink gloss is super hydrating, and doesn't feel sticky on the lips.

  3. How to restore a broken relationship and marriage ,Love Spells That Really Work Fast

    My name is Mark Davis, my family and i live in London UK.It was after seven years i got to discover that my wife was unfaithful to me.I didn't know what was going on at first but as she got deep in the affair with her new lover, i felt that our marriage was on the rocks.I notice that she no longer light up when i touch her or kiss her in her neck and her chest cos she really liked it when i did that, she also usually get naked in front of me but when she started seeing that guy she stopped it.I remember asking her if i have done anything that makes her feel irritated when i am around her then she gives silly excuses that she has been feeling stressed up and that she need space for a while.I know when you are been asked for space its usually because there is something fishy is going on.I hired a private investigator to help find out what was going on.And in a week time he brought me prove that my wife that i have lived with for seven straight year is cheating on me with her high school lover.I had picture of her walking out a of a restaurant with him and many other photo of them kissing in public like she will never be caught by someone that knows she is my wife.I asked myself, even when we had a daughter together she could this to me.That same night i showed her the pictures that i got from my private investigator.She didn't look at it before saying, that she is seeing someone and she know that i just found out about it.Then she said that she is in love with him.At that moment, i didn't know if to kill myself or to kill her but the button line is that if i was going to kill anyone it was going to be me cos i was so much in love with her to even think of thinking to hurt her.As time when on she asked for a divorce and got it and even got custody of our daughter and i was all alone by myself.For a year i tried all i could to get her back with the help of my seven year old daughter.Even at that all effect was in vain, i used the help of her friend but turned out all bad.I know most people don't believe in spell casting but believe me this was my last option and the result i most say was impressive.And i know it difficult to believe but A SPELL CASTER Dr brave really made my life much better cos he gave me my family back.He didn't ask me to pay for what he did for me all i was to do, was to provide the materials for the spell and believe that he had the power to help me.Like he said, he was going to do something that will make her reset her love and affection for me just as it has always been.My wife told me she woke up and realized that she should have never left me that i am all she needs.To make thing clear, her life with her high school lover was great before Dr brave castled the spell they had no disagreement on anything.The guy said it himself that why she broke up with him is unexplainable.Only Dr.Brave can do such a thing contact him to solve your problem with his ,or kindly visit he website .
