Hey guys!

Hope you're all well and having a good start to the week! Today I have a face of the day for you all! I love reading these types of posts and also everyday make up posts too. A couple of weeks ago the #bbloggers chat was about what posts people like/dislike to read, I think people have mixed opinions about FOTDs but I still like them. This FOTD is actually from the weekend, but I've only just managed to write this post.

Base
For my base I used the Bare Minerals Neutralising Primer just to even out my skin a bit, and then I buffed in my MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation  with a Real Techniques Expert Face Brush (it's amazing and dare I say..better than the buffing brush!)  I then went in with Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to cover my blemishes and redness. I didn't use any powder because Studio Fix Fluid dries to a natural to matte finish, and usually stays in place all day! I then used Soap & Glory's Solar Powder Bronzer on the high points to warm my Casper-like skin up! I then used the Bourjois Round Pot Blush in Rose PomPon as a blush and a subtle highlight.

Eyes
For the eyes, I did something a bit different and actually wore eyeshadow. Yes, eyeshadow. For some of you, eyeshadow may be an everyday staple and find it more shocking when you don't wear eyeshadow. But I never wear it! I've never really delved into the world of eyeshadow (apart from MUA's undressed palette and my mum's old eyeshadows). This probably isn't the best picture to show it as you can barely see it, but I used the highlight from the Sleek Contour Kit all over the lid and then the contour powder in my crease and my lower lash line. This will probably sound weird, using face products on my eyes, but I find they last the longest! I then did a thin line of my ELF Cream Eyeliner to add some definition, and then used some of my No 7 Extreme Length Mascara. Then I filled in my brows with ELF Eyebrow Kit in ash, a really nice cool toned brow kit!

Lips
For my lips I used Rimmel's Moisture Renew Lipstick in Vintage Pink; a gorgeous purple toned pink! The picture doesn't do it justice! The colour is so pretty ahhhh! I have no idea how to describe the colour but take my word for it, it's so gorgeous!

Thanks for reading, hope you have a good afternoon and evening!
