Today's face

So after posting a bit of a meh post yesterday I've picked myself up dusted myself down and I'm back, I got rid of my roots which always help the sun is shining and I've put on a face of makeup always makes you feel better.  I'm not going to moan about not having a Lint Easter egg although I would love one ha ha.

So here is today's face:





So what did I use to create this look:

First of all I prepped the skin and used my:-

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer: I find using a primer is essential now for makeup looks as if I don't use one your makeup tends to slip and slide off my face.  Recently I've been using my BD Trade Secrets Primer but I like to switch them around quite a bit.

Nars: Foundation is for my base and the colour is Santa Fe my only gripe is the bottle doesn't have a pump, but I've purchased there newest foundation and this one has got the pump with it.

Nars: Creamy Concealer in Light is one of my faves, it covers such a range of sins such as dark circles redness and it doesn't make your skin look patchy it's amazing.

Chantecaiille: Loose powder in Subtle just to keep any pesky shine at bay.

Chanel:  cream blush in Presage on the cheeks it looks quite scary in the pan but blended in looks quite natural I think .

Anastasia: Contour kit I'm loving contouring still, and love being able to fake cheek bones which I haven't really got as I've got chubby cheeks.

On the eyes:

I've mixed a bit of Mac Patina and Cranberry over my lids and lined my upper lash line with Estee 
Lauder Double Wear eyeliner in Olive Lustre, I love this I think it's such a pretty shade
On my lower lash line I've used cranberry to line and on the lashes it's my mini Benefit Rollerlash.

Lip wise it's Nars  Audacious in Bridget.

And last but not least a swipe  of  Hourglass lightening palette to fake my glow on my face.


I quite liked today's look for a change:)

You might think it's quite a lot and it is but I'm off visiting friends later so I'm hoping it will hold till then

Have a good night guys
