Introducing my version of the FOTD post. I'm going to be call them my Daily Beauty Logs but it is essentially just what I've chosen to slap on my face that day. The other day I sat down, had a good 'ol rummage through my makeup stash and picked some bits for a natural, dewy no fuss makeup look and picked the above. Liking the results slightly more than my dull grey I just woke up look I thought I'd log the look for when I'm lacking cosmetic inspiration.
Rimmel Wake me up concealer - I don't have a method or fancy concealer routine, I pretty much just swipe this all over my face in a child-like scribble and then blend blend blend! I then go in with my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser as a sort of highlighting concealer under the eyes and down the centre of my face. Since discovering this in the bottom of an old makeup bag and falling back in love with it, it's not left my face and I don't think it ever will. My new found love in the face powder department still remains to be the MUA Pro Base Powder. I have an entire post raving about this powder so I won't ramble on about it again but I use a smaller face brush and dust this under the eyes and across the centre of my face to set the concealer in place. My overall base of choice lately has been the Loreal Skin Perfection as it gives an even skinned finish and moisture but no heavy coverage which is what my skin is enjoying as of late. For eye shadow I usually use a creamy base before adding any shadow to give it something to adhere to and recently the Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow stick in the shade Bluffing...
Over the Bluffing base I then like to use my Two Faced Natural Eyes Palette. I love to sweep a bit of the shade Push up all over with Silk Teddy in the inner corner and Erotica in the outer V and under the lower lash line for a light smokey eye. This palette has seen me through quite a few years and I don't see myself loving any other palette more than I do this one! Thank you Two Faced, thank you!
Cue an awkward selfie to try and demonstrate this beauty log photographically. I'm hoping I will grow accustomed to taking pictures of myself and posting them on the interwebs. Until that day here is another awkward full facial shot of my mug!
I hope you liked this sort of post as if you've been a follower for a while you'll know I don't usually do FOTD type posts but I quite enjoyed it..
