THE MAKEUP DIARIES #2

When I got a package from my friend Estée full of some makeup she got me in Canada (see that video here) I of course wanted to play with it all. The Tarte Blusher in Blissful is probably my new favourite thing ever and I’m also madly in love with the Buxom Lip Creams. I’ve been using my Nude Tude palette from the Balm a LOT recently and that also features here along with my base of the moment, the Laura Mercier Mineral Powder (post to come soon!) which is a lovely natural, fuss free finish. If I have blemishes or discolouration (which is always) I just cover those using my beloved Lasting Perfection concealer by Collection and my latest obsession for banishing dark circles, the Diorskin Nude concealer which is really hydrating. Also making a cameo in this video is a mascara I put off trying for months but absolutely adore, Benefit’s They’re Real. It’s beautiful, I can’t deny it!

When it comes to hair I’ve always been a messy kind of gal and this summer I’ve been rediscovering the Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray to give me some texture and using the Ojon Rare Blend Oil to keep my ends conditioned. You can see me apply all the products in the video below and there’s a roundup of what I used as well as links to buy them underneath. I love filming ‘get ready with me’ videos so let me know if it’s something you enjoy and I’ll get to work filming more!

    I’ve been thinking about getting the balm palette, but having both naked palettes I don’t know if it’s worth it.

    What a lovely video, Gemma! I think these are some of my favourite videos from you although I do love it when you talk lots too because your voice is so soothing.

    What song did you use in the background of the video? I really like it!
