Bronze Basics - Face Of The Night

I got super excited combining two foundations in order to get the proper colour match. The effect was amazing, long lasting and just overall good news especially if you're an oily skin girl like me.
I have also been in a Burberry makeup rut (not a bad thing) and forgot about some old favourites, which have been brought back from the dead to do last evening's makeup.

Here's what I wore:

I combined my new Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme foundation (not available in Canada yet, but should be available by the end of August) since it was too light for me, so one dollop of the Revlon and one pump of Hourglass Immaculate Foundation in Nude on a Sephora 45 brush did the trick perfectly.
Did not need to be set with powder and lasted throughout the night with no touchups. I went to the washroom after a few hours to blot like I usually do and I was so excited to look in the mirror and not see a greaseball. I highly recommend either of the 2 foundations if you have oily skin and want something that has medium coverage yet feels lightweight on the skin.

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer in SC-4 (hands down my favourite concealer for blemishes)
Diorskin Nude Concealer #1 & #2 mixed (under the eyes)

Laura Mercier eyeshadow in Coffee Ground (lower lashline, outer corner)
L'oreal Lineur Intense eyeliner in Carbon Black

Annabelle Lip Liner in Demure
Buxom Creamsicle lip gloss

Hope you're all having a great weekend :D
