It’s been a while since I used my Lorac Pro palette. I remember all the raves online, and I hunted it down, paid premium for it. And after a few uses, I went on to newer shinier things. I’m glad I stuck to this stash shopping series, because it reminds me of the gems hidden in my drawer. And darn, time really flies. It’s been 3 years since I wrote about this palette!
On my lids, I used Garnet, a warm reddish bronze. I darkened the lash line and outer corners using Espresso, a matte dark brown and softened the edges using Taupe. I initially used a pink lipstick, but it just wasn’t what I had in mind. After playing around, I settled for No7 Perfect Lips Pencil in 20 Nude all over my lips, and Dior Lilac Glow on top. It’s the perfect nude lip for me. Not too beige, not too pink. For blush, I used Canmake Cream Cheeks in CL02.
For foundation, I’ve been using By Terry CC Cream in 01 Nude as base, and brighten with Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick in Warm Ivory. I bought the CC Cream a while ago but didn’t enjoy it. It’s really sheer but lately, I find that it evens out my skin tone just enough for a light dusting of powder. When I want more coverage, I use the foundation stick which I only apply at the centre of my face where I have the most redness. Then, I finish off with a dust of IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores pressed powder. I’ve been enjoying this base combination a lot lately. It’s light and makes my skin look naturally good. The powder DOES minimize the appearance of pores which is amazing. Definitely recommend it. I bought it during Sephora sale, so it was 20% off. The Bobbi Brown stick foundation is a relatively new purchase, and it IS cult for a reason, my friends. I don’t know why it took me so long to buy it.
Are you having a good weekend? Hope it’s a relaxing one before the week starts all over again on Monday. Cheers!
