It's been absolutely ages since i last did a face of the day; i don't know why but whenever i try to photograph my make up lately the photos just look awful, I'm not so photogenic to begin with but I'm finding it really hard to get any decent photos of my face at all - please let me know if you have any tips?

As the sun is starting to come out a little but the make up i went for is quite toned down but with a big pop of colour for the lips. After cleansing and moisturising i applied the Monu Brightening Boost* to my face, I've really been loving using this as it gives a really lovely glow to the skin. I decided to skip out foundation and instead went for a medium coverage concealer; Maybelline Superstay Betterskin Concealer in Light has been a big saviour for me of late as I've had a constant breakout on my chin so this has been amazing at covering them up and it also works well at covering my dark circles too.

I then go in with my Benefit Get Even Face Powder to set the concealer in place and also it makes sure it's all blended out nice and even. Once that's done i move onto the eyebrows; the way i do these hasn't changed at all, i still fill them in with HD Brows Foxy Kit using the shade Ash Brown and then set those in place with Maybelline Brow Drama. For the eyes; i kept them very simple and natural as i knew i was going for a bold lip so i applied Mac Paint Pot in Painterly as a base and then took my Two Faced Naked Eye Palette and took a mix of the shades 'Satin Sheets' and 'Pink Cheeks' all over the lid to give a wash of colour to the lids and then i applied Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara to the lashes.

Once the eyes are finished; i went back to my base and contoured using Sleek Contour Kit in Light - I've not used this in so long but recently I've really fallen back in love with it, it's a great way to sculpt the cheekbones and add definition i also add a touch of the highlight to compliment the contour shade. I also took the same brush i used with my powder and brushed it over where I'd applied the contour to make sure it's all blended together.

To finish the look off i lined my lips with MUA Intense Colour Lip Line in Red Drama and then applied Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 110 over the tip - i don't often go for really bold lips but I've been loving this lipstick a lot lately and i think its such a lovely colour for spring. It's a great way to add colour into your make up!

What make up have you been wearing lately?
