BEAUTY: Recent Makeup

I haven't done a recent makeup post in a while and after changing up some of the products that I've been using I thought it was about time I gave an update. 

Before applying my foundation I've been using The Body Shop Wonderblur which I posted about in more detail here, it makes my skin so smooth and ready for my foundation.  Foundation wise I've been been reaching for Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude daily now, it does what it says in the title and applies like an absolute dream, it is so smooth and light on the skin that it feels like you are wearing no foundation at all.  I've been applying it with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge and the pair work together like a dream to create a flawless base.  If I need any concealer than I've been using the Vichy Dermablend* which is quite a thick consistency and so gives really great coverage.  I've been setting my foundation with Nars Translucent Setting Powder which I borrowed off my mum and it just finishes off my base perfectly, I use it with the Real Techniques Duo-Fibre Brush* and I've found that I don't need a lot of product and just tend to stick to my T-zone. To contour I've been using the Clinique Contour Chubby Stick which I posted about here and buff it in to create some cheekbones, it's really quick and easy to use.  Since Christmas I've been religiously using my Benefit Cheeky Sweet Shop but recently I've been after a much dewier blusher and my Stila Convertible Colour in Magnolia has been perfect for this as it really warms up my cheeks.  A flick of eyeliner with my favourite eyeliner Rimmel Scandeleyes Liquid Liner and finished off Benefit Roller Lash, the perfect mascara for giving lengthy full lashes.  For brows I've just been giving them a run through with Benefit Gimme Brow which I am still loving.  To finish off the look I've been going for a pink matte lip courtesy of MAC Pink Plaid, my new favourite lipstick.

What makeup have you been wearing recently? Do you use any of these products?
