The Bronzed and Glowy Look: With MAC LoveJoy Blush

MAC Lovejoy

If you see my makeup collection, you’re going to find a variety of blushes that are all different shades of pink, so when I first got this blush, I didn’t know how I felt about it. I’m the type of girl who always wears pink blush leaving this blush, Lovejoy by MAC unused. One day, I discovered Mimi Ikonn on YouTube and I fell in love with her makeup. She typically wears the same type of makeup in every single video. On her cheeks, she has this bronzy glowy blush or bronzer which I just instantly fell in love with and I immediately opened my makeup collection to find something similar, and that’s when I figured that Lovejoy would be perfect to imitate Mimi’s look.

Lovejoy is so hard to describe because it’s one of those blushes that has a mix of colors. It it is bronze but it does have some pink in it, some red undertones and golden glitter running through it which is really pretty as a blush but it also gives some definition to the cheeks which I could use. The golden glitter surprisingly is not chunky so I don’t mind it on the face.  It compliments olive and tan skin tones very well, but it can work for lighter skin tones if used very lightly because it is dark.  I’ve been loving this blush so much and I can’t get enough of it! If you’re wondering where to find MAC stores here in Jeddah, there is one on Tahlia Street. photo (3)

The Post About Drugstore Concealers: Maybelline Fit Me and Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream

Drugstore Concealer Post

Concealers are just one of those products that could make you look like “Help, I need coffee, STAT!” to “I woke up like this”. It is a necessity in all makeup bags because it just helps you look a little more alive during the day. Two of my favorite inexpensive concealers are the Maybelline Fit Me and the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream (too long of a name isn’t it?). Both of them are quite similar in terms of coverage in that both of them have a very light coverage so they won’t be able to cover some hardcore dark circles. However, because they both have a light formula, they are so easy to blend you don’t even need a brush, fingertips are enough. Both of them are one of those slap-it-on-and-get-on-with-your-day kind of product. It is perfect for the everyday natural look which I am a huge fan of and that’s why I love them both so much. The light formula of this is just perfect for the hot and sweaty weather that we have here in Jeddah because very heavy products can be just too much in this weather. The only problem with this product is it does crease in the lines under the eyes, but a swipe of powder can just solve that problem so it’s not that much of an issue. I love both of these concealers and it’s perfect for those of you who want a lightweight formula with a light coverage.
