FOTD 01

Face of the Day 1 What's on my Face 1 - Makeup | www.latenightnonsense.com Face of the Day 1 What's on my Face 1 - Makeup | www.latenightnonsense.com

This is my first Face of the Day post, it probably won't be a regular thing unless anyone out there likes these kinds of posts? I made this purely for the lipstick, it's all about the lips! And possibly to just display my general process.

One of my go to foundations is L'Oreal's Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation in Rose Porcelain, it's so light and creamy and glides onto my face with minimal effort. The next product I apply is a concealer, and recently I've been reaching for Maybelline's Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer in Ivory. It really hides my dark circles and brightens my otherwise dull and lacklustre skin. A little dab of Benefit Blush in Sugarbomb mixed with their High Beam Highlighter and my cheeks look full, healthy and decidedly more human. I generally do my brows before I start on what I like to call the 'fininshing' touches, and that includes mascara. This way I get the whole effect and don't need to apply too much! I'm still using my Urban Decay Brow Box in Brown Sugar to pretty up my untameable eyebrows, and you can see how I do that in my tutorial post. Now for the eyes; swirling my ring finger in the Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24hr in Eternal Gold and sliding across the eyes makes for a sparkly yet subtle base which I then accentuate with a flick of Rimmel Glam Eyes Professional Liquid Liner in Black Glamour. A couple of coats of Clinique's High Impact Mascara in Black and the same for their Bottom Lash Mascara, also in Black, and I'm ready for the lip colour. A daring pop of Maybelline's Super Stay 24Hr Bold Matte in Fire Coral, which sets in the most gorgeous of orangey-coral tones and I'm good to go!

What do you wear on your face on a daily basis?

  5. Your lipstick complements your eyes!

    I'm using Lancome's BB complete. It isn't exactly a concealer but works good enough for me!

    1. Thanks Lynn!

      I do love a good BB cream, especially on days when I'd rather have lighter coverage without any of the effort.
