It’s Zoe Newlove
here, taking over the gorgeous Liza’s blog for today whilst she is away having a nice, well earned, break with her beautiful family.
I thought I would share with you my current favourite lipgloss, by the awesome cosmetics brand Nars. Orange has been the go to shade for Summer this year, and this is one I have turned to on many an occasion. I love the formula, easy wearing with a smooth, non sticky texture. Enriched with Vitamin E to help keep your lips supple and hydrated all day long.
Rather than just write a simple beauty review, I thought I would create a look to wear with this gloss. I firstly applied my YSL Touche Eclat foundation, which is a couple shades too dark for me, but I felt I needed a touch of warmth and radiance to my skin. Blemishes and the under eye area were covered with my new MeMeMe Correct & Perfect concealer, a gorgeous creamy formula with superb coverage. I then contoured my cheekbones, forehead and of course, my nose with my Trish McEvoy Bronzer, deciding to forfeit blush for a change. On my brows I used my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Medium Ash, a staple part of my daily routine.
As for the eyes, my base started off with Trish McEvoy Eye Base followed with a sweep of M.A.C Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Cork through the crease. I added a little definition to the outer corners with the dark brown shade from my Naked Basics Palette, which I then softly blended out with my favourite Crownbrush UK C433 Pro Blending Fluff (the famous M.A.C 217 dupe). Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pens are a dream to work with, I used my BronzeBeam shade to line the top and lower lash line, this colour really makes my eyes pop. For the waterline I chose my TooFaced Bullet Proof 24hr Eye liner in black, and the amazing TooFaced Better Than Sex mascara for my lashes.
This entire look was of course finished with my Nars Lipgloss in Wonder
. This is a look you can wear during the day, or if you want a simple evening look, which can easily be achieved. For more make-up looks like this stop by my blog (here)

Thank you Liza for having me, you are an absolute doll. See you soon.
