Trish McEvoy’s Highlighter.


Like Tamara (although in my defence I was doing much better than her!) I am very sorry about the lack of recent posts. We were  at V festival singing along to the likes of Florence + the machine, Lissie, Plan B, Kings of Leon even Mika plus many more and of course studying their makeup (Kate Nash was a bit of a disaster by the time she came off stage!) Then I headed for a joyful (or not) trip to the new forest last week (NEVER again!) and hopefully you got the picture.I’m very sorry and posts will hopefully be more regular. xx

Recently I received Trish McEvoys highlighter and I LOVE it. This comes in a simple black square compact, with two sections; the tops one the highlight, the bottom one space for more Trish McEvoy products or a sponge basically whatever you like.

The product itself is soft cream based highlighter perfect for just about anywhere, lips, eyebase, brow, face etc. It has a bit of shimmer but the shimmer isn’t too overpowering so you can also use the product on your face . This product is now a firm part of my daily makeup routine. It lasts all day and comes in two flattering skin tones. I have shade 1 London a pearly shimmery white for white skin. Their is also capri for darker skin tones.

If you would like a cheaper alternative Makebelieve have a reasonably similar product designed to enhance your makebelieve tan……. It’s called makebelieve enhance skin luminize skin highlighter and retails for £7.50 on asos.

Trish McEvoy is a brand I am really falling in love with so if you prefer slightly more upmarket brands or fancy a splurge i would highly recommend you had a look. The brand is sold in all Harvey Nichols and Selfridges stores in both London and Manchester.  https://cosmeticfreaks.wordpress.com/2010/06/02/trish-mcevoy/ (check this ild post out for more information on the brand.)

Tired Looking Eyes?? Not Any More…

Hey there,

On weekdays, when my alarm determines my waking hour, my eyes feel cakey, tired and generally gross. The first thing i do is apply Soap & Glory’s ‘Supereyes, Supereyes’ (click here to view the post).

 Then, when i’m dressed and my hair looks acceptable, i start on my makeup. What i’ve newly added to my routine is Trish McEvoy’s eye primer/base in ‘Sand’ which is a matte light pink shade (it comes in 6 shades) which comes in a little lip gloss type tube, and has a wand applicator. So, i dab two spots on each lid and blend it in with my fingers, and i pull it right up to my brow bone, almost on my eyebrow. This really brings a natural-looking lightness to the eyes, especially if you have a dark eye area. This is strickly non-creasing, and most eyeshadows applied on top look good quality – it brings out the colours pretty well. They are $24, so i’m guessing around £16-£17 plus shipping – you can look at them here.

I then apply a RMS ‘lip2cheek’ tint in ‘Muse’, which is a sheer light pink – this colour looks really great on eyelids, as it gives them a healthy, dewy appearance. These are $36, and can be found here.

Then, i apply a lengthening mascara – i use No7’s ‘Dream Lash’, which is non-clumpy, and looks really natural on its own. They are available here, for £12.
