A trip to London later and I completed my MAC palate, meaning it was only right that I did a WOMF to use some of the new shadows. I've also been trying to use products in my stash that don't receive as much love as they should, so this look incorporates that too. I started off my priming my eyelids with the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. I went to repurchase the original formula but couldn't seem to find it online so I'm trying this shade out for now. It still keeps my eyeshadows in place for hours, and also helps to create a flawless base on the eyes. Next I applied MAC's Woodwinked all over the eyes for a gorgeous bronze wash. Blending out the edges with MAC's Omega made everything look more seamless. To give my lashes some definition I used the KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick in 39 to add a smoky line really close to the lashes. Shock horror people, I didn't use my holy grail mascara, as I've been trialling (and loving) the Maybelline The Rocket Volume Mascara. This has similarities to my beloved Max Factor FLA and really holds a curl which is compulsory in my mascara menu. The eyes were finished off by a slick of Rimmel's Nude Eyeliner in the waterline and a smudge of MAC's Satin Taupe below the bottom lashes to try and work towards that Oslen-twin smoke. My eyebrow routine has been upped since the addition of Soap and Glory's Archery Brow Pencil in Hot Chocolate. Thanks to Sophie's recommendation I've been using this to get a more defined brow, with the nib being so fine it's great to draw in little fake hairs. 

In terms of foundation I did a bit of mixing to create a custom base with the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation in 110 Ivory and an oldie but a goldie in the form of L'oreal True Match Foundation in N1. These gave a semi-matte medium coverage finish to suit my desires of that day. Something else that's changed in my makeup routine is that I've upped my concealer use. Taking the Seventeen Stay Time Concealer I drew triangles below my eyes and onto the tops of my cheeks, down the bridge of my nose and on my chin. Blending this out with my fingers gives a highlighted look perfect for this kind of year. A light brush of Maybelline's Matte Maker Powder over the concealed areas ensures extra staying power. To finish the face off I contoured with Sleek's Contour Kit in Light and highlighted the tops of my cheeks with the Stila Convertible Colour in Kitten. Once my glowing face was complete I slicked a bit of Burberry's Kisses Lipstick in Nude 05 to add a slight colour to my lips while not taking anything away from the eyes. 

Have you tried any of the products I used?
