Make-up Monday

The "tool kit"
I like writing about make-up. Let's make that I LOVE writing about make-up, therefore I plan on starting a weekly make-up post. YAY!

Skin - today I only used sunscreen, it is getting quite sunny here therefore I use spf 40 every day. I love the one from Clinique, it does not make my skin oily or my pores clogged, one other thing that is a big plus for me is that it does spread out easily and doesn't leave any white marks on the skin! (Amazon - $28.16)

Clinique Sunscreen

Eyes - since last time I had more prominent lips I decided this time to focus more on my eyes.

My eye shadow is from Yves Rocher, it is from the Couleurs Natural section. The colour I chose is number 52 and is called Turqouise Réséda, as you can see on the swatch below it is very light and dreamy. I don't know why I haven't used it more often
(well I do know it was lost in a box and I just found it again). (Yves Rocher - $7.50)

My eyeliner is from L'Oréal Paris, it is from the Contour Kôhl section and the colour is 132 metallic grey. I can't seem to find it on any reliable English webpages but they do sell it on the German amazon   page. (Amazon - EUR 5.49 (around $7))

The mascara (that  I just finished) is from Max Factor, I can say with ease that it is not something I will buy again. The fact is, I am extremely picky with mascaras and this one from Max Factor isn't my cup of tea. It doesn't make my eyelashes shockingly gorgeous so why bother? Anyways, it is the Lash Extension Effect in black. (Amazon - $14.23)

Today I decided to have very calm lips, these days my go-to for simple lips is the Universal Lip Glow from L'Oréal Paris, it is from their Studio Secrets Professional selection and I LOVE IT!! I loved it when I saw a picture and a review of it when it first came out. The problem was it didn't come out so soon in Switzerland. I waited and waited what seemed to be forever after it would hit the stores here and finally right before Christmas it was here! (Boots - £8.49 ($14))
