FOTD – Monday,Monday…

I’m always one for quite neutral eyes, and I’m always wearing brown/gold/copper eyeshadow with brown kohl pencil and mascara. So today I thought I’d go with something a little bit different and experiment a bit with one of my palettes. I’m usually pretty cautious when it comes to colour around my eyes, just because I always fear clashing with my hair colour. Having said that I’m really pleased with how this look turned out. I especially love the lipstick shade (which I never thought in a million years would suit me!)

So here’s what I used…

FACE

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation – Light Vanilla
  • Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer – 1 Fair
  • Collection 2000 Shimmer Shades – Way to Glow
  • MUA Powder Blush – Shade 6

EYES

  • Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil – Hazel
  • Sleek Divine Mineral Eyeshadow Palette – Original (Purple Shimmer & Matte Black shades)
  • L’oreal Superliner Carbon Gloss – Carbon Black
  • Topshop Kohl Pencil – Coal
  • Topshop Lash Catcher Mascara – Black Cat

LIPS

  • Topshop Lipstick – Innocent

I’m so impressed with the pigment of the Sleek eyeshadows and will definitely pick up some more of them in the future and I also swear by Topshop’s kohl pencil, they are amazing and so easy to work with. I think I’ll definitely be experimenting with colour more often now.

Nails & Face Of The Day!

A bit of a late night post, but after doing my haul and after such a long break without any posts at all, I was in the mood to do another. So here’s just a few snaps of my nails and face of choice for today.

My nail polish is the Maybelline Express Finish 40 in Shade 250 Deep Violet. Its a gorgeous purple with flecks of blue glitter which shimmers through in the sunshine. Unfortunately it doesn’t show up very well in the photo but it is really pretty. My Step-Nan actually gave this to me recently because she never uses it, so it was a nice little freebie for me and I’m really pleased with it. The only thing I will say is that because it dries so quickly, it does make it hard to rectify mistakes, but with a couple of coats you can end up with a nice even finish.

For my make up today I used the following…

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum – Light Vanilla
  • Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer – Fair
  • Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil – Hazel
  • 3 Shades from the MUA Immaculate Collection Pallette
  • Topshop Lash Catcher Mascara – Black
  • Topshop Kohl Pencil – Saddle
  • MUA Mosaic Blush – English Rose
  • Topshop Lips – Crystal

Apologies for the lighting in these pictures…it looks like one side of my face is glowing due to the light from my window!!

 

I absolutely love the Topshop Mascara which is from their new Spring/Summer collection ‘Sisters of the New Moon’. I think it makes my lashes look so long and it doesn’t clump at all!! Amazing!!!

Face & Outfit of the Day – Monday

I’m a day late with this post but I didn’t have a chance to post yesterday after travelling back from my parents in the afternoon and then had to do the exciting food shop last night when I got home.  But anyway, this is the first time I’ve done a Face of the Day but I’m trying to carry on with the theme of daily posts just while I have time off work.

So here’s a lowdown of the products I used for my FOTD

  • Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum – Light Vanilla (51)
  • Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil – Hazel (002)
  • MUA Heaven & Earth Palette (1, Hightlight, 2. Lid 3. Crease)
  • Topshop Kohl Pencil – Saddle
  • Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion – Black/Brown
  • MUA Powder Blusher – Shade 4
  • Original Carmex on my lips

 

And here is the result…

I really like this look because it really brightens my face and my eyes without going too over the top. I love the blush as it gives me a nice natural glow and the gold tones of the eye shadow really bring out the grey/blue shades in my eyes.
I’m really loving the Bourjois healthy mix serum, which I did a review of here and love the dewy look it brings to my skin and the colour match is just perfect 🙂

And for my outfit of the day, I wore a Navy lace detail top from Primark (£6) with a navy vest top underneath. With my favourite Skinny Jeans in the whole world from Next (£20) and a pair of grey daps from Primark (£3)
