Nude and natural

I know a lot of people that enjoy keeping their make up nice and natural, so here are the products I have and recommend to keep it natural!


Nars eyeshadow duo in Kalahari. 
This is a great everyday eyeshadow! I don't use it every day, it depends if I'm wearing blush, lipstick or bronzer and what colour's they are.

Maybelline colour tattoo in on and on bronze:-
This is a dupe of the lighter shade in the NARS eyeshadow duo. It's a fraction of the price as well! I don't wear my make up for 24hrs so I don't know if it lasts that long but hay ho! This also builds up to be a lot darker than both L'oreal and NARS

L'oreal color infallible in Sahara treasure:-
 This is a dark shade of both the colours in the NARS duo but it is a dupe, not of colour, but of consistency, ease of application, easy blendable and shine.

Avon colour trend in flirty flutters:-
 Sorry about the quality! I just had to take this image and the lighting isn't very good. This has different nude colours. It has a white colour, gold, copper and pinky colour. I used to use this all the time when I was younger and I only bought make up from avon :S I was about 14 at the time!

Lipsticks/lip gloss/glow:-

l'oreal rouge caresse lipstick:-

This is the perfect nude for me. It doesn't wash me out and it leaves my lips looking lovely and hydrated! I will continue to buy this as it's a gorgeous nude lipstick. It wouldn't wash a lot of people out and it's buttery and more hydrating for me than the Revlon lip butters.

Elf lipstick in Rosy Raisin:-
I love this lipstick! It's my lips but better. I think it would look good on a lot of people. It's a sheer lipstick. I like the sleek package. I may buy this again due to the small price, but it isn't very hydrating.

L'oreal studio secrets lip glow:-
That's all it is, a lip glow. It adds a very sheen tint on the lips but it also makes them look better. I won't buy this again because it doesn't do a lot for me, but it does leave you with a natural looking lip.

17 mirror shine lipstick in Beehive:-
Yes, this lipstick again. It leaves a natural pinky tone to your lips and depending on what blusher I'm wearing I'd wear this. I normally wear it with a bronzer more than blush because I don't like looking too pinky!

Revlon Colour Burst lip gloss in crystal water:-
This leaves a very natural glow to your lips with hints of blue and pink! I do love this on top on lipstick or on it's own. It isn't too sticky as many lip glosses tend to be and why I normally hate them.

Blushers and bronzers:-

Natural collection cream blusher in Rosy pink:-
This gives you the perfect rosy natural blush. It's easily blended into your cheeks, but try not to blend it too much or else it will completely fade out as the pigment isn't as good.

Collection 2000 blush in trouble:-

This is such a cute little blush! If you wanna carry this around to top up or even have it in a carry bag it's so compact it will sit snuggly in there. I love the colour of this blush and the cute flower design on the actual product. It leaves a lovely flush to your cheeks and doesn't look like you're wearing too much make up.

Bourjois bronzing powder:-

It does look very light there due to the light, but it's actually not that light. It smells a bit like chocolate as well! I've tried this once and it was amazing, and on that I think it's a great product. I love the design of it, though it isn't as hand in a make up bag because it isn't as slim line as other products are! It gives you a lovely sun kissed bronze look to your skin.

MUA  mosaic bronzer in natural glow:-
I love the 'sun kissed' version of this mosaic bronzer line that MUA does. This gives you a sun kissed look but the pigment isn't as good so you need to apply it more than once depending on what you prefer.
