Hello everyone welcome back! It's been a while since I've written a proper blogpost, with work being busy and always doing something on my day off, I just haven't had the time to write any! But I'm back today with a face of the day! I haven't done one of these in ages and I have switched up the products I use a lot since then.
For my base I use the Yes-to-tomatoes serum as a primer, which I have found has helped clear up my skin and makes the foundation stay on better. On top of this I have been using the MANNA GLO illuminator which gives me a really nice glow under my foundation. I then use the L'Oréal true match foundation in the shade 1N. This is a new discovery of mine and is quickly becoming a favourite. This has excellent coverage without looking cakey and I find it gives me a nice glow without being shiny after being powdered down.
I have been using the Bourjois radiance reveal concealer under my eyes which really helps to brighten them up. I then set all this in place with the NYX loose translucent powder which I love.
For contouring I'm using the Revolution Pro HD powder contour palette in the shade fair. I find this palette so easy to use, and the colours are so easy to work with and blend really well. I mostly use the lighter brown shade with a tiny bit of the medium one on top if I want a bit of a stronger contour. I don't really use the other shades in the palette as I don't really have a use for them. For blusher I'm still using the NYX baked blusher in the shade BBL10 Ladylike, which is slowly running out (after about 2 years!). I do really like this blusher as its so subtle and pretty. For highlighter I'm using the I Heart Makeup baked highlighter which is my absolute favourite! It's so pretty.
For eye makeup I've fallen back in love with my Naked 3 palette. I use the lightest shade (strange) all over my lid as a base, and then use the lighter mate shade (limit) on top of that. I then put the darker matte purple (nooner) in the outer corner and crease and blend it out. In the inner and centre part of my lid I use the second shimmery shade (dust).
For eyeliner I'm currently using a new discovery of mine which is the Borjois felt liner. I'm really enjoying using this at the moment. It is really easy to use and goes on really well, and doesn't fade throughout the day. The mascara I'm using is the Radial glamolash one I got in a glossybox (see my post here) and so far I'm really liking it. I feel it gives my lashes more volume and length without going too clumpy. For my eyebrows I'm using the NYX eyebrow powder kit which is perfect for filling in my brows without looking too fake.
Finally for lipstick I'm using the Urban Decay Vice liquid lipstick in the shade Backtalk. This is my new favourite liquid lipstick! it doesn't go really dry and crumbly on the lips and it lasts all day, but comes off when you need it to.
So this is my go-to look for an average day. Let me know what products you're using on a daily basis, and I'll be back soon with a new post! Also don't forget to follow my twitter, instagram and bloglovin to stay updated! I'd really appreciate it.
Until next time.
