This was a recent look I did for filming some videos, I tend to beef up the coverage when I’m filming since the lights wash me out a bit.

I used a combination of L’Oreal True Match Foundation in Shade N2 & Illamasqua Skin Base in Shade #5 for my base. The I used Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory to highlight under my eyes, down my nose and on my chin (this is a standard for me). Contouring was done with NARS Laguna and I highlighted the tops of my cheekbones with TheBalm Mary Loumanizer (which is smashed and needs repairing!).

I decided to go a bit heavier on the eyebrows by using my Make Up Forever Aqua Brow in Shade 10 (Light Blonde) and setting them with Benefit Gimme Brow in Light/Medium. For my eyes I used a combination from one of my favourite eyeshadow sets the NARS Kalahari Eyeshadow Duo (I love both these shades, separately…together…any which way.) Mascara was the Be Essentials Volumising Mascara. I have a review of this coming up soon.

My cheeks have very rarely been without Tarte 12 Hour Amazonian Clay Blush in Tipsy for these past 2 months so using this was a no brainer. I also dusted over the new Models Prefer Soft Touch Mineral Powder in Soft Focus, this is a total dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders and although I don’t own them to compare completely I am absolutely loving this one from Models Prefer.

Another product that has not really left my face much lately (particularly on weekends) is this Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in Shade 110, unfortunately we didn’t get this shade in Australia but I ordered mine from ASOS and it’s amazing!

These posts are basically my FOTD but I wanted to give them a different name. Let’s be honest I cant be bothered being creative with every FOTD title name so The Face #whatever is now born. 
Today’s “The Face” is my pretty much everyday look for work of late, the items used are from this months Makeup Edit except for the lipstick.. I kinda cheated a little on that one and used a newie from my recent haul.
I start off by mixing up Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Shade Buff with Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in Shade 100 . I then added the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Concealer under the eyes, I need this because i’ve been exhausted lately and a bit of brightness under the eyes makes me look more alive. 
I then added a slick of the middle shade in the Natio Soft Day Palette this is a nice taupey colour and works well blended out on its own. Almost poked my eye out with the Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal in Black applying it to the upper waterline. Tamed my brows with the Australis Extender Lash & Brow* and added a couple of coats of Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara.
Next up was a bit of colour to brighten my face in the form of Stila Convertible Colour in Lillium. A quick powder with Australis Fresh & Flawless powder in Natural. To finish off I put a light coat of Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie on the lips, this shade can get quite dark but since I am going to work I wanted to keep it subtle.
