It was my good friend Gemma (@zilmeg) birthday on Wednesday so we had a nice little action packed day. As the weather was lovely we had a nice little trip to Southport; ate fish and chips on the pier, played crazy golf and although i didn't win - i did hit the bell on the last hole and won myself a free game when i next go! We also went bowling (Joint 2nd!) and then went back to Gem's house and sat around a fire pit which was lovely - i had a lovely day and i really hope Gem did too.

I took a few photos of my make up before we went out and i thought I'd share it with you as it's been ages since i last did a face of the day post. Even though it was quite a warm day i wore quite a bit of make up as i knew i was going to be out late and of course i wanted to make a bit more of an effort.

For my base i wore the Benefit Porefessional Primer to give me smooth and even base - i covered my dark circles and blemishes with Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 10 and on top of that i went in with my current favourite foundation which is the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in 10 Beige - it's such a beautiful foundation, its perfect for this warmer weather as it gives enough coverage (and its buildable for those who need more) and it's so light on the skin so you can't feel its there. I then set it all in place with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent, contoured the cheeks with Sleek Contour Kit in Light and applied a pop of colour to the cheeks with Nars Blush in Sin.

For my eyebrows; i filled them in using Soap and Glory Archery Brow Tint and Precision Shaping Pencil in Brownie Points - i used the side with the felt tip nib as it's really light but it fills them in really nicely and makes them look really full yet natural, i then set those with Maybelline Brow Drama in Dark Brown.

I kept my eye make up relatively simple - i primed them with the Dainty Doll Eyeshadow Base and for eyeshadows i used my Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette using the shades 'Bootycall' all over the lid and 'Busted' in the outer corner. I lined my eyes with Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner and applied Max Factor Excess Volume Mascara* - i absolutely love this as it separates my lashes and it really adds length and it holds the curl really well.

For the lips i applied an old favourite of mine - Rimmel Lasting Finish in Nude Pink. This used to be one of my everyday lipstick as the name suggests it's a pink toned nude but it almost leans into a peachy coral tone and i think it's such a gorgeous colour for summer.

So that is the make up i wore; i really like how it turned out - what do you think?
