Face of the Day | A Polished everyday look

August 24, 2012

look of the day by zaamissbowtie with palladio, avon, Borjois, lancome, inglot and erborian
I haven’t EVER done a Face of the Day post, but I thought I would post one today because I am wearing the exact same look today that I worse recently and have the pictures for it πŸ™‚

This is my favourite makeup look because it is something that I wear very often. It’s natural and now that I use BB cream instead of foundation it makes the look feel very light and I definitely am going to wear this through to summer.

What I’m wearing:

Erborian BB Cream in Dore (you can read my review here)

Inglot AMC Cream Concealer in 70 under my eye and for my dark spots

Hannon Blush. I’ve used two shades, the lighter shade I used nearer to my cheekbones and the darker one for the hollow of my cheeks to create a slight contour.

Palladio Baked Eyeshadow trio in Plum (available from Dis-chem). I’ve used the lightest shade as a highlighter for my eyes and the darkest in the crease. I really love this because when used dry it gives a very natural look and when used wet it can be dramatic!

Borjois Liner Princeau liquid eyeliner in Black. I’ve lined my upper eyelids only and very thinly, mainly to enhance my eyelashes.

Lancome Hypnose Mascara (you can see my other look and review using this here)

Essence Holographic eyeshadow as a Highlighter (You can see my review of this here). I love this eyeshadow as a highlighter just above my cheeks and on the bridge of my nose

Avon Colour Trend Lipstick I stole from my sister finished this off well!!

Pheew! That was long! But seriously, this takes me 5 minutes and gives me a very polished day look!

    Do you use makeup brushes? Synthetic or real? What do you prefer?

      I use my fingers for foundation and concealer πŸ˜› and for blush and highlighter I use the Essence Blush Brush. Before that I had a MAC one but I destroyed it. The Essence works really well
