Face Of The Day #1

FOTD 3 FOTD 2 FOTD 1


(Hat - Primark, Necklace - Ginger Pickle c/o Not On The High Street, Dress - Urban Outfitters

Base // Cheeks: As my skin isn't fantastic at the minute, I decided to go for my go-to foundation of the moment, Bourjois Healthy Mix, with it's medium coverage being perfect. I'm currently suffering with the most horrendously dry skin but by some miracle, this foundation never seems to stick to the dry patches and simply glides over - it gets a thumbs up from me. Concealer-wise I went for the bloggers favourites Collection Lasting Perfection and Bobbi Brown Under-Eye Corrector, which never fail to do the trick, although I do have my eyes on a certain NARS creamy concealer...

In terms of bronzer I'm currently wearing a slight dusting of Topshop's Bronzer in Mohawk in an effort to warm up my ghastly-pale skin, on top of using the NYX powder blush in Taupe as a contour. And of course, I couldn't forget about blusher, which is another of NYX's but this time in Peach which is a lovely coral/pink colour which I find gives me a healthy glow.

Eyes // Brows: Using the Barry M eyeliner brush (I'd highly recommend it) I filled in my practically non-existent brows with 'Lavish' in the MUA Undress Me Too palette which I've been loving recently. On my eyelids I'm wearing MAC's Brule eyeshadow as an all-over base, with Amber Lights and Foile blended out in the crease to add some depth. I also used my MAC 239 brush to add a little in my lower-lash line. I've applied a thin line of Model Own's black kohl eye-liner very close to the upper lash-line in order to create the illusion that my lashes are thicker than they actually are. And finally, I added lashings of two of my favourite mascaras, Revlon Lash Potion and Maybelline The Falsies - a winning combo in my eyes (Well, not in my eyes... you know what I mean).

Lips: Firstly I coloured in my lips with a red lip pencil and since they're super chapped added copious amounts of Maybelline Baby Lips in Cherry Me. Since I wasn't feeling it, I patted on top of this my favourite lipstick (dare I say of all time) which is the Dior Addict Lipstick in Wild to neutralise it out a little.
