Hellooooo! How’s your weekend been? I was looking through my blog the other day and realized that I hadn’t done many beauty posts recently, my last one being my ‘ Travel Friendly Makeup‘ post. I feel like the whole matte lips look has been trending for some time now and the simple matte eye look too. So I thought that I would do a little beauty edit, based around the ongoing matte trend. I know that sometimes shimmery eyeshadows can be quite daunting so matte shadows are a great alternate option. Since Autumn is just around the corner ( oooohh I’m getting excited! ) I thought that a nice little beauty roundup would be the perfect transitional post. I will be showing you things matte so I hope you find a little something that takes your fancy!
Staring off with the eyes. I absolutely adore matte eyeshadows, I feel like they are so universal and easy to work with. You could just simply blend a few matte shadows into your crease and already have so much dimension added to your look. Some of my ultimate faves include:
- Revolution I Heart Makeup Collection, I Heart Chocolate Palette: Matte Shades, You Need Love, One More Piece, Thank Friday, Pleasure Girl, Meet Chocolate, Stolen Chocolate
- MUA Matte Winter Forest Palette
- Boutique Eyeshadow – In A Nutshell
Now of course for lips you’ll probably expect me to talk all about matte liquid lipsticks, but as it goes I’m still yet to jump aboard the whole matte liquid lipstick trend, but there are quite a few lippies that I’ve had my eye on for some time that look absolutely GORGEOUS!
- Love Bug – Colourpop
- Tulle – Colourpop
- Kae – Colourpop
- Sin – MAC (I have a review on the product HERE)
For the face there are so many products that I love, from powders to bronzers and even a few base products. Though when I looked through my collection, these were the ones that really stuck out for me:
- Matte Perfect Foundation – MUA
- Mat Velvet Foundation – Make Up Forever
- Pressed Powder – MUA
So I hope that you enjoyed reading! Let me know what are some of your favourite matte beauty items and if you have any recommendations be sure to let me know and I shall be back with you again next week!
P.S: I was just wondering, do you prefer matte eyeshadows or shimmers? I feel like matte shadows are more wearable for me personally but I do love to incorporate some shimmers every now and then too. Byesies! Xxxx
