What’s on my face #2

What's On My Face

I did my first ‘Whats on my face‘ back in February so I apologise that it’s been so long! My outfit posts have been easy to capture but as soon as I try take close-ups it’s like my camera (and sometimes my face) doesn’t want to cooperate. However, I finally managed to take some blog-able photos the other day to show you my make-up…

I firstly applied my Collection ‘Lasting Perfection’ Concealer around my nose and chin to cover any redness and blemishes. As I’ve been loving a light base recently, I then went straight ahead and powdered my entire face with my favourite, MAC’s ‘Mineralize Skinfinish Natural’ (review). Sleek’s ‘Contour Kit’ (review) came up next and I used the contour shade to warm up my cheeks and temples and dusted the highlighter along the tops of my cheekbones.

I filled in my eyebrows using Benefit’s ‘Brow-Zings’ and set them in place with my Illamasqua ‘Brow & Lash Gel(review). I love using the MUA ‘Undress Me Too palette when I don’t want my eye shadow to be in your face; I think it’s a great dupe for the Naked 2 shade wise, but they aren’t as pigmented therefore perfect when wanting something subtle. I applied ‘Tranquil’ all over the lid then blended ‘Lavish’ through the crease and outer corner to create a shadow. Using my new Collection Felt-Tip Liner I created a simple, thin winged line to open up my eyes and added drama with Maybelline ‘The Falsies‘ mascara.

I finished the entire look off with Benefit’s Lipstick in ‘Rocket Pop’ as I wasn’t feeling a bright lip (so unlike me). Well there you have it, a long over-due face post, and here’s the final outcome…As you can see the look is very simple and easy to wear, I’ve been wearing this look to work a lot recently. However, if I’m in a bit of a rush I’ll skip out the eyes and just wear mascara on it’s own or if I’m wanting to make a statement I’ll wear a brighter lip. Please let me know in the comments what you love to wear on a daily basis and if you use any of these products. Thanks for reading!
