FACE OF THE DAY | JUNESaturday, June 07, 2014
I haven't don't a face of the day post since last October so its been a while and as I've changed up quite a few of my products, I thought it was about time I posted a new FOTD. Keeping my make up super natural as always I've used really glowy light on my skin products to achieve a more 'no make up' makeup look if that makes sense.
I started by moisturising my face with my Simple vital vitamins day cream as it has a SPF 15 which is great as it hydrates my skin all day whilst protecting it from the sun also. I then applied a tiny bit of my Simple age resisting Eye cream under my eyes to hydrate them. I then primed my face with my favourite primer the Beauty UK Prime FX, I love this primer because it works so well at keeping everything in place all day whilst also reducing the appearance of fine lines under my eyes. It does feel a little greasy when I'm applying it with my fingers but once its on it doesn't feel greasy or oily at all.
I've never been a huge fan of mineral makeup but when I tried this sheer cover foundation a few weeks ago I loved it. It doesn't sit on any dry areas of my face and looks so natural on my skin. It buffs perfectly into my face and has a light but build able coverage without feeling cakey. I applied that with the sheer cover foundation brush. I then applied the sheer cover concealer to any spots and redness on my face and also to my under eyes to brighten them up a bit. Using the sheer cover angled blush/bronzer brush, I apply the darker shades of the bronzing trio from the sheer cover studio deluxe kit to the outer parts of my forehead, cheeks , jawline and my neck. Then using the lightest shade from the trio , I lightly apply it to my cheeks , brow bone and down there centre of my nose as a highlight.
I then used the same brush I used for my bronzer and lightly dusted the Beauty UK baked blush in the shade Popsicle pink which is gorgeous, it leaves a fresh pink glow on my cheeks as its slightly shimmery and works as a highlight also. I curl my eye lashes and apply one coat of the sheer cover lengthening mascara, then one coat of the sheer cover fibre extensions and then another coat of the lengthening mascara to lock in the fibres and extend my lashes. This mascara with extending fibres is amazing and really makes my lashes so much longer without false lashes or an expensive lash treatment. I lightly tight line my upper lash line with the urban decay 24/7 eye pencil in the shade zero which is very black and my eyes are done.
To finish off , I apply a few strokes of the Maybelline Master Shape brow pencil to fill in my brows a bit, then apply my smooch cosmetics lipstick in the shade poppin pink which is a really sheer baby pink, perfect for everyday.
So that's it! My face of the day June edition...I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you use any of these products?
