On the Makeup Menu Today…

I’ll be the first to put my hand-up and say my few and far between makeup application videos aren’t the most imaginative; ‘Super Simple Red Lip‘, ‘Five Product Face’, ‘Simple & Slightly Smokey Makeup Routine‘ – you get the gist. So instead of scratching my head for a title that encapsulates my latest super simple, slightly subtle look I thought I’d crack out a new little feature – my ‘Makeup Menu’. No themes, nothing fancy, with a numbered edition at the end of the title – just a girl who lurves makeup (yet only ever throws on a handful of products), showcasing my current favourites in action. First into the ring: Dior’s BB Creme (have I hammered home the fact I love this enough yet?), a cheap as chips brow tamer and a smacker of a red that’s a known favourite of Jessica Alba.

P.S) And yes I did have a little problem with the spelling of ‘Riviera’, opps…
