First FOTD

Hey all

Today I thought I do a FOTD for you I took these photos a while back but haven’t braved putting them on here yet. Hope you like this post, let me know. Personally I like seeing these posts as I like to see the products people use regularly and how they look on.

So here is the make up I used. This day was a cheap face make up day and a lazy one, no priming, eyeliner or contouring!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in True Ivory – £5.99

17 blush in shade in Nude – £3.49

Natural Collection pressed powder in Cool – £1.99

MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle – £21.50

Accesorise brushes (part of a set at Christmas)

MAC 168 Large Contour Brush – £26.00

Real Techniques Stippling Brush – £11.99

Eylure Shape and Shade Brow Kit – £10.99

Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara – £10.00

17 Peep Show Mascara – £6.29

MUA Heaven and Earth Palette – £4.00

MAC Fanfare Lipstick – £14.00

No7 Lipliner Shade Nude – £6.75 or £1.75 with voucher

Nivea Lip Balm – £1.65

First I apply my eyeshadow. 9 times out of 10 I will do my eyes before my foundation so if I get any fall out from foundation I don’t have to re do my foundation. I also apply lip balm so my lips are ready for lipstick.

First I apply the 4th eyeshadow on the top row all over the eyelid. Next I define the crease of my eye with the 5th shadow on the bottom and lastly with eye shadow I do a V on the outer corner of my eye with the 5th shadow on the top row.

Next comes mascara. I always wear two different mascaras. I use two different ones usually depends on what two I grab out of my bag first. I apply thick and fast first to define and separate my lashes. I then use peep show to add some volume to my lashes.

I apply some of the lightest eyeshadow to the inner corner of my eye to make it look wider.

Next is foundation and Blush.

I apply Rimmel Wake Me Up all over using my stippling brush to get a nice even finish.

Then whilst doing the suck the cheeks in face I put the blusher on the apples of my cheeks and add a sweep of MAC MSF over my cheek bones and a sweep down my nose and under my brows.

Finally filling in my brows and wiping of my lip balm I line my lips to help the lipstick last.

This is such a gorgeous natural lip shade and one that gets plenty of wear.

So after all that my face looks like this!!

And in natural sunlight you can see the effect of the mineralize skin finish. This is the best highlighter I have used and I use it almost every day!!

So that’s my first FOTD for the blog, hope you like it.

Love M
