What's on my face #1

What's On My Face #1
Products I used on my face
Benefit Brow Zings and Speed Brow
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
Rimmel Apocalips


'IS THAT YOU?!' I hear you all scream in fear. Yes, this is my face... I was really in two minds whether or not to start doing this particular type of post as I was pretty anxious about putting my face on my blog. But I've decided to just bite the bullet and go for it. I know I've done an outfit post before but to me this is different, it's certainly more 'up close and personal'. Yesterday I had a spare 10 minutes before going to work so I thought I'd snap some photos & see how they turned out. Thankfully, I managed to take an acceptable picture to 'blogging standard' & will now share with you 'What's on my face'...

FACE
Rimmel's 'Wake Me Up' Foundation - Shade True Ivory 103 // £8.99
Benefit's 'Stay Don't Stray' Eye Primer (sample) // £19.50 - (full size)
Collection's 'Lasting Perfection' Concealer - Shade Medium // £4.19
MAC'S 'Mineralize Skinfinish Natural' - Shade Light Plus // £21
Sleek's 'Face Contour Kit' - Shade Light // £6.49

BROWS
Benefit's 'Brow Zings' // £22.50
Benefit's 'Speed Brow' // £12

EYES 
Rimmel's 'Soft Kohl Eye Pencil' // £2.99
Benefit's 'They're Real' Mascara // £18.50
Urban Decay's Naked 2 Palette - 'Bootycall' & 'Tease' // £36

LIPS
Rimmel's 'Apocalips' in 'Big Bang' // £5.99

And breathe... So this is what I'd usually wear when going to work but I change up my lipsticks depending on what look I'm going for. This was my first time using the much talked about 'Apocalips' and I have to say it lives up to the hype, I loved it! Please give your honest opinion on whether you'd like to see more posts like this and tell me what you thought about my first 'face' post. Thanks for reading and thanks for being amazing followers, big kisses!

  29. Made up that you have bitten the bullet and put your face up for make up posts. I am all for the outfit ones but I am still quite self consious about doing make up ones. Your make up looks goregous though and I don't know why you would have any reseverations. Love your lip colour and lovely blog too btw!
