SISJ BEAUTY : IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FACE, THE FACE, THE FACE! >

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE FACE. END BLOG POST. No, not really. You are here now so you may as well get comfy and start taking notes! Today I’ve featured some of my all time FAAAARVOURITE pieces that put together this face of mine – unfortunately I don’t wake-up like this. NOT. EVEN. CLOSE. The products I’ve chosen to include today are certainly at higher end of the market, but I’ll tell you why they are worth every cent and more. 


DESIGNER LIFT FOUNDATION { GIORGIO ARMANI }

I have been using this foundation looooong before Instagram was invented. Yep, THAT LONG and then some. It ain’t cheap, but I would only purchase 4-5 bottles MAX per year, and I wear this on a daily basis (light – full coverage depending on what I’m doing). It goes on like silk and really does soften those horrid fine lines around the eyes. It has a luminous finish and provides great coverage with only one application. If I am really making an effort though, I will apply two. It has SPF 20 (tick, tick) and is long-wearing. We’ve all worn that foundation that is gathered like muddy puddles at the corners of our mouth by lunchtime, but this is most definitely NOT one of those. It also has some magical/top secret ingredient that allows it to morph into MY skin colour no matter what day I am at of my spray tan, ha! Seriously. It just knows… Obviously on day one I am as dark as dark can be, but by day four or five, my rather pale/translucent natural skin tone starts to appear, and yet I can still wear it?! Crazy stuff I know. I wear shade 5.5 (this is a medium shade). This retails at $109 in Australia, but worth every single cent. I don’t mind a cheapie mascara or lippie, but I would never skimp on foundation. That pinky/grey shade is a dead giveaway ladies. SOZ, NOT SOZ #foundationsnob

BROW POWDER DUO { or } PERFECT BROWS { CHANEL }

I have also been using the Perfect Brows kit forever and ever, until now! Ahhh. Within the PB kit (RRP AU $84), there are three shades and some brushes. I always end up with two empty colours and the far left one (for pale brows) is always left full – wah, and it’s not cheap. SO, being the thrifty little financial guru that I am (AS IF), I found the Brow Powder Duo (also $84) and I think this will be a switch-a-roo for life I’m afraid. I LOVE a dark brow and I find blending these two colours works perfectly for me – colour and shape wise. The square hard-bristled brush it comes with is THE BEST for giving you a gorgeous, thick and a squarish finish on the inside of your brows. Pic below >

EXTRA DIMENSION BLUSH { MAC COSMETICS }

This stuff is the definition of FULLY SICK. I now own three and my addiction is only getting worse by the day. This week I purchased ‘FAUX SURE!’ and ‘HARD TO GET’, yes I am gentleman. YES. I AM. While they are both super similar bronzieee colours, one has a hint of coral/warmth through it (FS). These retail for $45 and considering they will probably last me years, I’ve essentially SAVED us money. P.s yes, these are the ones photographed above and below – you are welcome.

LONGWEAR POWDER EYESHADOW { CHANEL }

I am not a huuuuge smokey eye girl, for no other reason than I’m hopeless at executing the right look without looking like a Panda. SO, I use the powder with a thin brush on the corners of the outside of my eyes (top and bottom). I find this widens them and gives me the bold impact where I can handle it! For an extra come-hither look, add some liquid to the eyelid. It does retail for $52, eeep I know, BUT it will last a bajillion years, it’s super sensitive and suitable for those who wear contacts, easy to blend and it’s long wearing. Like foundation, eye shadow is not one to skimp on as you will often see the dryer ones shift into the creases on your eyelid within hours. A more silky and lush shadow will last much longer and not require touch-ups. Now, for anyone rolling their pretty little eyes, I’m not saying cheaper make-up is crapsies, I’m just saying in my experience brands like Burberry, Dior, Guerlain and Chanel are the best. I purchased the Noir Satin (no. 26). Maybe I should include #eyeshadowsnobtoo just to be PC and cover all bases!
