Cosmetics a la Carte Bare Blush in Moonbeam and Lipstick in Ballerina!

 Cosmetics a la Carte Bare Blush Cream Blush in Moonbeam

 Cosmetics a la Carte Plump & Prime [lip base] and Lustre Lipstick in Ballerina

There is something about this base, it makes all lipsticks look even better and I find it prevents them from running, quite often I like to wear it on its own just as a nude lip!

Cosmetics a la Carte Lustre Lipstick in Ballerina

Hey Beauties! As featured before here is a look I created wearing the beautiful Cosmetics a la Carte Moonbeam highlighter and the pretty Lustre Lipstick in Ballerina. It's a really natural and fresh looking beauty look, which is emphasised by the glowing complexion and a pretty light pink lip with a sheen. If you haven't seen my previous blogpost with in depth review on these products, all the shades info and swatches click here! 

Although it's called a Cream Blush it really is a highlighter, but you can use it all over your face including cheeks and eyes just avoiding the centre of the face except for the bridge of the nose. The way I like to use it for that super glowing complexion is by applying it on top of my foundation and using it just like I would a highlighter but I also apply it where I'd apply blusher. Then on the cheeks on top of Moonbeam I layer my powder blush of choice, what that creates is a beautiful subtle sheen from underneath which means it doesn't look greasy, it just lifts the blush. Moonbeam  is a warm peach/rose gold shade, very beautiful. You can apply it with fingers, but I prefer to use the realTechniques Contour Brush with it, it applies it like a dream creating that airbrushed finish!

I have become a huge Cosmetics a la Carte lover this year, there are just so many great products I keep discovering! I particularly love their lipsticks, the textures are beautiful, the different finishes, they wear nicely, and somehow every lipstick I have tried looks effortlessly beautiful! Ballerina is such a pretty casual pink with a sheen. Although it's a Lustre finish it doesn't have a frosty shimmer, it just has a flattering sheen, which I find adds freshness to the face just like a glowing complexion does!
