I said to myself last year that this year I’d need to start posting pictures of my face. It’s a very daunting experience, especially as I (very luckily) receive quite a bit of traffic now and the idea of putting my warts ‘n’ all mug up for all to criticise is very scary! There’s an overriding fear that people will look at my picture, cackle and say “I’m expected to take beauty tips from that??!!” Hopefully that won’t happen…..
I have such a love for make-up and an equal love for viewing what other people do with their make-up, so I wanted to start sharing my ‘looks’. It’s safe to say that my photography skills leave much to be desired and I’ll never know what to do with my mouth when having my picture taken; for some reason, if you stick a camera in front of my face my jaw locks into a stiff, uncomfortable position that really isn’t flattering!
Anyway, on to my F.O.T.D which today was all about the eye. The whole look is really simple with the main focus being the eyes. There’s a lot I’ve used today that I haven’t reviewed yet but I definitely will as some of the bits and bobs are new to my collection but absolutely amazing.
For my face I used:
Everyday Minerals Colour Corrector in Mint to tone down the redness of my spots and acne scars.
Everyday Minerals Semi-Matte Base in Ivory
Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush in Pink
I’m still struggling with a few spots and my skin is looking rather horrid with lots of post blemish marks, so I’m currently relying on a full coverage mineral foundation to stop them peeping through!
For the eyes I used:
Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Blonde (my review is here)
17 Instant Glow Bronzing Rocks* (I used this as an eyeshadow)
Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony (for more info on tightlining the eyes have a look at my pictorial here)
Shu Uemera Eyelash Curler
17 Peep Show Mascara*
I didn’t bother to fix my eyebrows in place as I like to keep them looking naturally defined. I used a soft brush to apply the bronzing rocks and I only used one coat of mascara.
For the lips I used:
Palladio Tinted Lipbalm in Cotton Candy*
I wanted to keep the lips really natural so I used a tinted lipbalm for a hint of colour. The bronze on the eye is quite a strong look so anything too bright on the lips risks clashing.
So there you have it! That’s my F.O.T.D. for today. What do you think?
