My Makeup: Maybelline Creamy Cinnamon

You might have noticed that this week I’ve tried a few new features on the blog. ‘The Weekend Post’ will be up every Sunday with my lazy-day beauty goings-on and Monday will now be the day that I inject a hit of style into this blog. Quite a few of you asked to see more content on events that I am lucky enough to be invited to, so I’ve vowed to lug my camera along in the evenings and bring you the latest pics and goss. One final thing is a weekly dose of ‘My Makeup’. I’m a creature of habit when it comes to what I put on my face, so ‘FOTDS’ are all a bit too regular for me, so I’ll be trying to shake my makeup routine up weekly and sharing the outcome every Wednesday. Phew, housekeeping out of the way – now on to the good stuff!

Revlon Photoready BB Cream Skin Perfecter in Light
Almay Line Smoothing Concealer in Light/Medium
Maybelline Creamy Cinnamon Blusher
Revlon Growluscious Mascara
Max Factor Designer Blossom Lip Pencil

Uber simple stuff right? I’ve got 3 foundations/BB creams on rotation at the moment and the Revlon is what I reach for on lazy days where my skin is looking alright. My Almay Line Smoothing Concealer gives a much fuller coverage but is also much heavier under the eyes. The main point of this post is to do a bit of raving about Maybelline Creamy Cinnamon blush. This is a product that has been sitting in my ‘possible blog sale fodder’ pile for a while, but in a rush the other day I grabbed it and I’m very happy I did. I have been reaching for the Revlon Photoready Blush in Neutral recently (post on that here), but if I fancy more of a bronzy peach blush then Creamy Cinnamon is perfect. I know when it comes to Maybelline people always bang on about Fresh Coral, which is a blush that I really dislike for it’s reddy tone or Peachie Sweetie, which is a colour that I own but don’t reach for too often; but Creamy Cinnamon is definitely one to check out. It does contain a fair amount of shimmer, which is easily removed by a quick tap of the brush, but it’s one of those shades that adds blush, a bit of contour and highlight, all in one. For my lashes and lips I stuck to my old favourites – Revlon Growluscious Mascara and Max Factor’s Designer Blossom.

Let me know if you’d like to see more weekly ‘My Makeup’ posts and I’d love to hear what you’ve been slapping on your face this week in the comments below!
