Make Up Shake Up! Shopping My Stash #1: Maybelline, Sleek, Shu Uemura, Face Atelier and Clarins


I'm not sure where this originated but I first saw it on Lauren's blog - I think it's a great way to get better acquainted with the products I already own.  I've had a rummage so keep reading to see what I'll be wearing to work this week.




EYES: I'm still seeing reviews of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo's and this has two effects - one, I want the final two to finish my collection, and two, I feel guilty for not using the ones I already own. So this week I'll be using this one in Permanent Taupe , with a touch of this Estee Lauder shadow in Vanilla on the brow bone and this dark brown Catrice shadow to fill in my brows.

I'll also be using my Shu Uemura eyelash curlers which haven't really seen the light of day, and this precise lengths mascara by the same brand. The mid brown shade of this duo sided eyeliner from Boots No 7 will round off the look.


LIPS: This shade of Rouge Prodige, Peach Sorbet, is a lovely natural shade for work. I love this line from Clarins - they feel really rich and creamy on the lips.

CHEEKS: I've hardly worn this Sleek blusher in Coral since I bought it on my last trip to Scotland but I think it will pair nicely with Permanent Taupe and brighten up my face.

FACE: I've been sent this Face Atelier Ultra Foundation for review so I'll be trialling it this week and sharing my thoughts on it soon.
