New hairstyle + my make up routine for oily skin and summer

November 14, 2013

I unintentionally went short, I should be mad at the hairdresser but I actually like it. I get bored with my hair quite often (hence the colours) and I don’t think I’m gutsy enough to go short on my own but it seems to be a trend right now, and hey- no more tangles, yay!

Estee Lauder Matte Perfecting Primer / Laura Mercier Under Eye Corrector in Orange/ Yellow / Maybelline Fit Me concealer no. 25 /  Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Shell Beige / Ben Nye Banana Powder / Bahama Mama bronzer for contouring / Sephora blush in Orange Pop / Estee Lauder Signature Hydra Lustre lipstick in Cocoa Rose / NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese /Estee Lauder Double Wear ‘Stay in Place Gel liner / Benefit They’re Real Mascara.

I have oily skin and I live in the desert, this is not a fun combination. Make up for Dubai weather has to be water proof and budge proof, even the walk from my car to the building can melt your face! Estee Lauder is pretty much my favorite brand because they’ve never disappointed me. I can’t live without Laura Mercier’s corrector, I think it’s a brown girl must have for pigmentation and dark circles. Except for the Ben Nye powder and Maybelline concealer, all the other products are repurchases and on my holy grail list.

So, do you have any holy grail products?

P.S I forgot to include my Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray in the photo, it’s also a holy grail product that keeps my make up on and gives a lovely glow.

Until next time x
