First #fotd post

This is my first ever face of the day post, and I'm really shocked what I used for my base! I never knew I put so much stuff on. AND this is my minimal make up look without doing my eyes or eyebrows. HALP.

For my base I moisturised with Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel which I love, I have oily skin and it works a dream. Sinks in quickly and doesn't leave any residue. Next I apply my favourite primer from √Čtude House's Dr Oil collection. It's a dual primer and moisturiser so added locked in moisture there. Third I apply Garnier's oil free Bb cream in light, sometimes I just use this and am done but today I opted to add another layer for total coverage by using Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in shade 51. I top up any blemishes with MUA's Pro-Base Conceal and Brighten Kit in porcelain beige. Lastly I apply MUA Matte Perfect Loose Powder just to hold it in place followed with MUA's new Pro-Base Fixing Mist.

I love my basic look and this works with anything!

Today I tried a highlighter which I've never used before and I'm not quite sure how you wear it: MUA's Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter. This really gave me a healthy glow but to emphasise my cheek bones I added Sleek blush in crochet from their Lace Blush by 3 collection. I love these blusher palettes as you only need a little and they last forever!

Finally just a bit of Rimmel's Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara and Apocalips in Luna!

Final nude/coral basic look complete!

  1. When I get my make up out on a morning, I'm always gobsmacked by how much stuff there is and I don't really think I wear that much! I've only just started wearing highlighter,I did a post about it on my blog and I really love the effect it gives x

  2. You make me ashamed that I don't put -that- much effort into my face. :'). I'm wishing I managed to grab some of the highlighter though! x
