FOTD || Everyday Natural Makeup

Wednesday, 20 November 2013
Hello! I had some spare time this morning before work so thought I'd take some pictures for a 'Face of the Day' post and make the most of the good light. I've been keeping my make up quite simple recently to save time in the mornings and let me sleep (and stay warm) a little longer!

Nars Orgasm Blush

I've been keeping my make up quite simple for work recently and rediscovered a few products that have really helped to brighten up my complexion (much needed in this weather). 

So here's what products I used today (and a lot of other days too)...

Straight after moisturising, I mix a little Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in 'Sand' with a tiny bit of L'Oreal Infalliable foundation. The colour name has rubbed off on the L'Oreal foundation, but it has a strong yellow tone which corrects the colour of the Double Wear as it's slightly too pink for me (despite being a warm shade!). I apply my foundation using the Real Techniques Stippling brush then take Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer and mix the shades 'Light' and 'Medium' under my eyes. Then I take the shade 'Light' down the centre of my nose and dab into my skin with my fingers. I contour in all the usual places using my Honey Bronze Bronzing Powder in 'Deep Matte 04' by The Body Shop and the Real Techniques Contour Brush. For my eyebrows, I use a Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil to shape and fill in, then Benefit Brow Zings wax to keep them in place. I use Bourjois eyeshadow in 'Beige Rose' (a light shimmer) on my brow bone, tear duct, inner corners and on my cheekbones to brighten my face. I'm not doing much to my eyes these days - I just use a little of Urban Decay 'Buck' eyeshadow in the crease, line my lashes with Stila Stay All Day eye liner and apply a few coats of Maybelline 'The Falsies' mascara. I use a little of my Nars blusher in 'Orgasm' and lightly powder my t-zone with some Laura Mercier Loose Setting powder in 'Translucent'. And to finish off, I apply some of my favourite lipstick which is Estee Lauder Kissable Shine in 'Venice Kiss'. And that's me done!
