Day 29 - FOTD

31 Day Fashion Blogger Challenge.
29th. Face of the Day.


I don't normally post pictures of my face on the blog, as I feel it's often quite gratuitous when bloggers do it and smacks a bit of angling for "OMG you're so pretty!" comments, but needs must for this challenge. I've chosen this "FOTD" as it's different from my everyday makeup as this is what I wore for a housewarming party last night. As you can see, I decided to do a purple smokey eye to go with my amazing new purple galaxy top (from Primark.)
I'm quite pleased with how this came out. I never used to be able to do anything even slightly resembling a smokey eye without looking like I'd been punched in the face, so successfully (I think) managing a bruise-coloured version without looking like I'd been in a fight is an achievement for me!

Face - Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer in Fair, Jemma Kidd Light As Air foundation in 01 Ultra Light, Collection 2000 Illuminating Touch concealer in Naked, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light, Maybelline Dream Touch Blush in Apricot, Clinique Blushing Blush Powder Blush in Aglow.
Eyes - NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean (as eyeshadow base), MUA Eyedust in Shade 6, MAC eyeshadow in Omega (eyebrows) and Nylon, MUA liquid eyeliner, No7 Extravagant Volume mascara.
Lips - Carmex :p

  5. OMG you're so pretty! No, but seriously, you do look gorgeous in these pictures. I love the eye make up. I'm inspired to learn how to do proper face make up.
