Zeena's Every Day Makeup ft NYX Macaron Lippie

Wednesday, 30 September 2015 London, UK

I rarely do beauty posts that include my face (no idea why) - but definitely need to go about doing more! People are always interested in what products I wear on my face, so you'll be happy to know that everything I do use costs less than a tenner each (seems like I have some sort of rule). I don't like paying too much for beauty products if I'm honest, I just don't see the point unless I'm head over heels. Having done some research I've come to  realise that a lot of makeup brands be it high end, online, highstreet etc sometimes make their products in the same factories - so why should or would I pay £30 for a high end lipstick when I can get it for like £6? Hmmm! I wouldn't say I'm a bargain hunter, just smart to be honest! 

Anyway I wanted to take you through some of the products I used for this look. I know what you're thinking I always look the same haha so I will be experimenting with different looks and uploading them onto my blog. (Products are listed beneath pictures).

I'm always asked about the products I use so thought it would be a good idea to feature them on the blog. As mentioned everything is affordable and can be worn as an everyday subtle look (not using too much product) or for a really heavy evening look depending on how you use the products.

Lippie Review

I must say, I was a bit apprehensive to try this colour when I first saw it because I just thought something so light wouldn't suit me in this finish as I have dry lips. However, once I tried it on, I was like OMG WOW this is amazing! I was just about to purchase a lip tar in a similar shade from OCC and cancelled my order due to this haha. Obviously the finish isn't the same, but I do still really love the colour. If you follow me on instagram, you'll know that the pink lipstick that I always wear also by NYX who I'm a BIG fan of if you haven't guessed. Can't wait to try the other colours!

What do you think of my look? Would love to hear your thoughts!
