Topshop Make up Haul

Lip stick in 'Thrilled',
Cream blush in 'High Five' -
both Topshop

 Firstly, sorry about the lack of outfit posts (or any posts at all) lately. It's quite difficult to get the lighting right where I take the photos because I like to use natural light but the weather is so gloomy most of the time. Ok excuses over, now onto the post! After seeing so many Youtube make up 'gurus' showing off their lovely Topshop make up, I decided I simply had to buy some to pad out my own pitiful collection (does one eyeshadow duo count as a collection?). I wanted to buy it online, but as you can imagine, it's a bit difficult to work out what suits you through a computer screen. But Topshop have solved this problem with their nifty little 'virtual makeover' application, which allows you to upload a photo and try out the different products on your face (see print screen above). There are a few issues with it though. Firstly, they don't seem to update the make up options very often, because a lot of the blushers on the virtual makeover were no longer available to buy. And secondly, the colours on the website aren't exactly the same as they are in real life. The lip stick I bought in the colour 'Thrilled' is more corally than it appeared on the virtual makeover. Luckily, I still like the colour, so Topshop is forgiven!

  2. The virtual make-over on the Topshop site is such a good idea!
