WhatLauraWore: Shopping Trip!

Yesterday I went shopping to the Metro Centre.  I needed to exchange a DKNY watch that had broken (i suspect due to poor craftsmanship rather than carelessness on my part) and I wanted to have a look about for a new liquid foundation as I’ve recently ran out of my YSL Perfect Touch Radiant Brush.  I picked up quite a few goodies, including the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation and power which I’m really excited to try.  You get a free makeup bag with some products in when you buy two or more products, so check that out in House of Fraser.  I also picked up some Superdrug buys and some things from MAC… more on these later 🙂

I was gutted to see that the snow is back– not where I live but close by up in the hills there is snow and it was snowing lightly when we got in the car this morning.  Argh, I hate it.  Looks pretty but I hate how everything comes to a standstill when it snows.  Britain is just not equipped for lots of snow so I really hope this is the last of it and it starts to warm up.  As it was FREEZING outside, I opted for a warm outfit today.  My hair was very messed and just shoved up in a bobble with a few pieces hanging down and make up wise, I was wearing quite a lot of products but in a natural style.  In hindsight I should have worn very little makeup, if any as the girls at the various counters I visited took my makeup off in parts to match up different foundations to my skintone.  Im not too bothered about leaving the house without any make up on, unless im going on a night out or meeting up with my friends.  As long as I have a bit of mascara on, I dont mine too much– I dress and do my make up for me, not for anyone else!

Is it snowing where you live?  Would you step outside the house with no make up on?!

    @Gloria- Thanks honey. Oh I will do, planning on trying it out this week and doing a blog post on it next week that way ill have put it to the test at work and on a night out! Its reassuring to know that so many people love DW, i hope I do too. Hopefully ill be able to work with it, even if its heavier than YSL, probably just what I need as my skin is quite oily at the moment. Fingers crossed :)Laura xoxo

    I'm not too bothered about not wearing makeup either. Unless it's at night or I'm going to be out for longer than a couple of hours, I kind of see it as a waste of makeup! hehe That cardigan is so cute! my sister has one just like it and I keep wanting to 'borrow' it haha. Jeggings scare me 🙁
