It feels like its been ages since i last did a face of the day post and i have actually missed doing them! I went into town on Saturday to do a little bit of christmas shopping so i thought id share with you the make up i wore!

After moisturising my face i applied Kiko Skintone Correcting Primer in Violet to the face, focusing more on my cheek bone area to brighten up my face a little. I blended Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory under my eyes and around my nose using the Real Techniques Buffing Brush and using the same concealer i covered any blemishes on my chin but this time blending it out with my fingers. Using the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, i applied Rimmel London Wake Me Up Foundation in Ivory - i love using this foundation in the colder months because it really brightens up my face. I groomed my eyebrows and filled them in using the HD Foxy Brows Kit - i mixed the shade 'Ash Brown' with a touch of 'Carbon' and set those in place with MUA Clear Mascara.

I primed my eyelids Urban Decay Primer Potion and applied NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk into the inner corner to add a little highlight and to brighten up the eye area. The eyelook i went for was a very simple, subtle neutral eye and i achieved that with MUA 'Ever After' Matte Eyeshadow Palette, I applied the shade 'Bare' all over the lid as a base and took a small amount of 'Chino' and blended that into the crease to add some depth to the eye, i then took the shade 'Truffle' and applied that into the outer corner and then applied 'Smoke' along the lash line to add the definition of an eyeliner but it's much softer looking on the eye. I used Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner in Black to tightline my eyes and to give the impression of much fuller lashes, i also think tightlining gives an eye look a much edgier feel to it. I then finished off the eyes by applying Benefit They're Real Mascara to give me lovely long lashes.

I set my base in place with Benefit Hello Flawless Custom Cover Up Powder in Gee, I'm Swell Ivory* and using ELF Studio Stippling brush i applied a small amount of Shaka Blush in Scarlett to the cheeks to give a nice flush of colour to the cheeks. To finish off the look i wore Rimmel London Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Celestial.

Hope you like it!

  1. I love my Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation - but the shade I have is too dark for winter. Your eyeshadow is pretty & the Rimmel apocalips are some of my fave lip products. So easy to wear & gives a nice pop of colour

    1. Aw thank you! :) I love Rimmel Apocalips too, i wanna try some of the newer shades they have!
