FOTD #2 – Minimalist Face Of The Day

Hello guys! It is time for another face of the day post. It’s been an absolute age since I put up the first one, so at last here is a second one for you πŸ˜€

This look is pretty basic and I just wanted something really simple and quick. I hope you like it!

BASE

For my base I started off with The Body Shop’s Tea Tree BB Cream. I can normally get away with out concealer when using this, but I wanted just a little extra coverage. So I used the Maybelline The Eraser Eye under the eye and Collection Lasting Perfection concealer on blemishes.

To contour, I used the bronzer from the original Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette which I love as it is light enough for even the fairest skin, and has no shimmer! For blush, I used my new Hourglass Ambient Blush in Diffused Heat. I am so in love with this! Just look how pretty πŸ˜€ As a highlight, I added some of the lightest centre shade from the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette to the top of my cheekbones. I finished up with a little bit of Soap and Glory’s One Heck of A Blot on my forehead!!

EYES

For the eyes, I kept it pretty simple today! Even more so than usual haha! First I filled in my brows with the Maybelline Master Shape brow pencil. I am not sure how I feel about this one. The pencil is very waxy, more than I normally like, but it seems to do the job just fine.

On the lids, I used Strange all over the lid and Nooner in the crease. Both are from the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. Strange is just the creamy highlight colour and Nooner is a lovely light matte brown.

I then applied a thin line of L’oreal SuperLiner Super Slim in Black. This is another product I am not too sure about! I tend to find it easier to apply liner with an angled brush as I can never seem to get the line as thin as I’d like with the felt tip applicators like this one.

Finally, I curled my lashes and applied the L’oreal Miss Manga mascara in Black Angel. I LOVE THIS STUFF. It has replaced Maybelline The Falsies as my favourite! My only issue is that it isn’t waterproof and everytime I look for the waterproof version, it is sold out. GRRRR!!! Oh well πŸ™‚

LIPS

I just used one product on my lips, and that was the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in shade 7 Nudist. I really love this shade, much more than any of the others in the range. I was really not interested in these lipsticks at first, but somehow I have managed to end up with 4 out of the 8 in the collection! And there are still 2 more I want… Uhoh! πŸ˜€

But I will tell you all about those and where you canΒ grab shade 7 and 8 tomorrow πŸ™‚

      Aw thank you so much! Happy summer to you too!

      Haha, no need to be jealous πŸ™‚ There is so much more I wish I had but we are broke enough already with the amount I buy haha! Just save your pennies and treat yourself sometimes. I really like their palettes. I had just the Naked 1 for ages and I used it everyday. I think it’s the most wearable one so you would get the most use out of it πŸ˜€
