Hey Beauty Buddies…
Something dawned on me yesterday morning as I was preparing to rummage through my make-up bag… I haven’t tackled a FOTD post! *gasp* So being less than an arms-length away from my trusty camera I thought it would be fun to run you through one of my daily make-up looks.
After cleansing and moisturising I start of by prepping my tired and grey complexion with the Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer. My go to foundation is Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 HR Foundation (to read my recent review *click here*) followed by a dab of the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer over any patchy or red areas. Lastly, I add a tiny amount of the Urban Decay Primer Potion to ensure my eyeshadow will last as long as possible without any creasing or fading. If you haven’t tried this primer you must – it’s beyond amazing and will last a lifetime!

Considering I’m a shadow obsessive, my eyes always take the longest in my routine – everything else just seems so quick to apply in comparison. Today I’m using one of my favourite palettes Urban Decay NAKED, followed by MUA liquid liner and two coats of Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara.
As most of you know I’m paler than pale so to avoid looking like an extra from Twilight it’s essential I wash over my cheeks with a skimming of bronzer. Recently I’ve been using the MUA bronzer, which I has undoubtedly been one of my most used purchases this year. To apply I always reach for my Real Techniques Cheek Brush from the Nic’s Picks set. It’s by FAR the best brush I’ve ever used for evening applying powder. It controls the product so nicely, feels incredibly soft on the skin and puts everything right where you want it: on your face in an orderly manner!
Lastly it’s time to add a little pout with a small coating of MUA Bare (shade 14) I’ve really grown to adore this shade, however it took me a little while getting used to going so light. Usually I’ll add a base of Revlon Crème Gloss in Wine Anytime before applying, just to add a little extra note of pink!
Finally… Taa Daa
And there we have it, a fresh face ready to tackle the rest of the day ahead thank to a multitude of my favourite make-up must haves.
Hope you all had a great weekend! As always thanks for reading and don’t forget to say a quick hello in the comments below… see you all tomorrow with an exciting Behind The Blog post! *Yaaay*
