FOTD- Sushi Time!

This week has proven to be so stressful so far. On tuesday I ventured over to Bristol for the Benefit recruitment day which was hours of interviewing, learning, makeuping and sell sell selling. I was proud to get through the day as its no secret I have zero confidence when it comes to approaching people and trying to force makeovers on the unsuspecting public was definitely out of my comfort zone. I didn't get offered a job but I was so proud of myself for not running a mile in the opposite direction and hiding amid the slippers or anything else equally as useless :) In all seriousness though, I do need to find a job with more hours than I'm doing now so if anyone knows of any going near Bath/Bristol then do let me know!

This evening is date night. Well, loosely anyway. Daniel and I are going to brave the rain and enjoy a meal at Yo Sushi, making the most of Blue Thursday where every dish on the belt is £2.40 each. Needless to say, this will involve much over excitement and a lot more self restraint than either of us possess so there is likely to be a sushi induced food coma going on later.
As its kind of date night, I thought I should make a bit of effort so here is my makeup for the evening.
I went for a pretty natural look, trying out some of my new bits of makeup and just adding a little colour to my eyelids.
At the moment I am totally obsessed with clear, glowing skin so I spent most time fussing over my cheeks and hiding MONSTER pores around my nose.
I got sent a new Avon eye quad in a swap that I tested out on my eyes, its hard to see in the photos but I've blended purple into brown along the eyelid and then gently flicked it out at the corner. I hardly ever use eyeliner these days, instead I use a small concealer brush to sweep coloured eyeshadow along the lid as it gives a softer colour but where the brush is fairly dense it still gives a good pay off.

What I used:


  • 17 Photo Flawless Face Primer
  • Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
  • EsteeLauder Double Wear Concealer
  • Natural Collection Loose Powder
  • MAC Fleet Fast Powder Blush
  • Bourjois Pastel Blush in Lilas D'or
  • Lush Feeling Younger Skin Tint
  • Sleek Brow Kit in Dark
  • Bourjois Eyeshadow 05
  • Avon 24K Gleam of Gold quad
  • Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara
  • No 7 Moisture Drench Lipstick in Devine
Phew, big list. Amazing how much you use to create such a soft look eh!
What do you think of todays look? What style have you been favouring lately?

    1. Thank you :) Yeah, I like nice subtle cheeks. The MAC blusher is really good for that. I use use a blush brush to apply then use the Elf studio kabuki brush to blend out into a soft colour :) xx
