FOTD Spring Time

Just a little face of the day post for you today. I've had a lovely day out with my mum to try to counteract all the little annoyances that life is throwing at us both. I tried my very best to be good but I did end up buying a few bits and I treated myself to some new bras because I really did need those haha.

Today I went for a light, spring face. I used BB cream instead of my usual foundation and a nice light blushed to stay looking softly highlighted.

On my face I used Garnier BB cream in Light, Calvin Klein Long Wear pressed powder in Light, Estee Lauder Double Wear concealer in Light (haha, trend much?!) and The POREfessional from Benefit. I also used an unbranded blusher that I've had for years to highlight my cheek bones and E.l.f Natural Radiance blusher in Coy to contour the cheek bones.
To create the eye effect I used my Chilli Pepper palette which I'm trying to pan at the moment. I used the nude shade which is almost all gone all over the lid and applied the dark grey along the lid near the last line. On the waterline I used a soft Ted Baker eyeliner pencil before finishing off with one coat of Scandaleyes mascara.
My eyebrows I filled out with my Rimmel London brow pencil in Black/Brown.
I used my Lush lip scrub to remove any chapped skin from my lips before using Pixi lip stain in Love before topping with a coat of Barry M lipgloss.
Finally, I set the look using my E.l.f mist and set spray to make sure the look stayed in place all day :)

As you can see, I'm still loving the bright lip look :P I'm sorry for the repetition but I have another FOTD lined up for you tomorrow to show off the 1920's style make-up that I will be wearing during a play in in during May. We have the promotional photo shoot tomorrow so I'm looking forward to that!

What have you been up to so far this weekend? Have you posted today? If so, link me up, I'm looking for some new reading material :)

  1. Lovely look! I've been wanting to try that BB cream, is the coverage good? I normally like to use a really thick foundation but want something lighter for summer!x

    1. Thank you :)
      I love the Garnier BB cream. The coverage is pretty good and it gives quite a soft looking appearance. One thing I will say about it though is that its the only product I use that needs powder touch ups because I find that after a few hours it tends to look a little shiny. Might be something to be aware of if you have slightly oily skin :) xx

  2. Lovely post!


  3. I love the lip colour, will definitely check it out! I have the porefessional as well but I'm still not sold on it.

    1. Thanks :) I was so excited because I found the lip stain in TK Maxx in a pack with a nail polish too for £4.99! Bargain!

    1. Cheers lovely :) It's the first lip stain I've bought and I'm totally converted. So much more long lasting and doesn't transfer on to everything :) xx
