The Daily Face will be a series about which makeup products i'm wearing, with mini reviews of each product.
Today I'm wearing a recently new purchase, in my ongoing search for the perfect foundation (I know, I know I have enough makeup to last me a life time and probably shouldn't buy anymore) which takes the form of the Urban decay naked skin foundation! I absolutely love this foundation. The packaging is stunning and very pleasing on the eye. The fluid inside blends seamlessly into the skin, leaving me with a slight glow and flawless looking skin.
To conceal those horrendous dark circles which literally look like I haven't actually slept for a year when in fact I have, I used a combination of bourjois happy light concealer in the shade ivory and the MAC studio finish concealer in NC20. The bourjois concealer is a salmon toned to help hide those awful bags and the MAC on top gives that extra bit of coverage! These two little round pots offer the right amount of coverage needed to look awake and more human. The only downside is they are very creamy and can crease throughout the day.
For the chizzled cheek look I used my good ole' Bourjois chocolate bronzer. For me this is the best bronzer for contouring (yes I contour on a daily basis, I mean if the Kardashians are doing it.. so am I) the shade suits my skin tone way better than cooler toned bronzers. To really make those cheek bones pop I used the makeup revolution vivid baked highlighter in the shade golden lights.
For blush the Makeup Revolution ultra blush palette in sugar and spice has been my go to for looking more awake and less ghost like. I used a mixture of the top left and bottom left.
The Brow product of the moment for me is the rimmel brow pencil in the shade 002 hazel. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to brows, stuck to what you know is my moto here. Sharpie pen brows is not a good look for me and this well loved little pencil gives me soft yet defined brows.
Now sharpie like winged eyeliner is a look I want. Why is it so easy to achieve clean straight lines and angles on eyebrows but not on eyelids?!?! Arg major first world problems, right? But any way the product I used to try to achieved said look was the Maybelline lasting gel liner. I failed epically *said face*. This is definitely a product for those winged liner pros, its not the easiest eyeliner to use.
What makeup look is completed without a few coats of mascara? Several coats of the Seventeen falsifeye HD mascara and I'm good to go!
What is everybody else wearing today?
Until next time...
