Face the day
This is me on the day after my birthday (21st August! I'm now a granny!) going to Longleat Safari Park which just to let you know is literally the best thing ever. It's fantastic.
I'm wearing Max Factor Ageless Elixir 2 in 1 Foundation in 'Natural 50'. Usually I'm quite pale in foundations and can't quite find the right shade. This one is perfect for me in the summer as I'm a couple of shades darker by the time I come back from holidays or being in the sun! I like this foundation as it's almost like the beloved/hated Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse or the Dream Satin version but nicer. So much nicer. I like that it has a serum in it for all my wrinkles. Not. I bought this after trying out a sample and deciding I liked the texture it gives. It's quite 'dewy' and is not heavy on the skin. I don't wear much and usually only cover my T-zone. I only wear it when I go out or for occasions where you want to look a bit nicer. It gives nice coverage but still allows my freckles to shine through! I love freckles on most people and I feel it makes it look less harsh when you have a thin foundation!
Benefit's 'It' stick is my favourite ever concealer, it's just so good. JUST FOUND OUT IT'S DISCONTINUED THOUGH. SOB. Might have to eBay it! Christ I've bought that one for at least 5 years. The best ever. Perfectly pale too. Wah.
Rimmel Glam'Eyes Liquid Eye Liner is my favourite eyeliner. I like the brush, it's not too long or too short and it's still firm if you know what I mean. I don't sound like I'm talking about an eyeliner brush here do I! Haha sorry.
Max Factor's Cream Puff in translucent 05 I've got this on my cheek bones leading up to my ears. Only a dusting though as it's very dark on me. I got this from Cheap Smells as it's an old product I think but they do great bargains on that site! Just click on the link and have a browse I dare ya.
Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara in black. I got this free with Tatler magazine and it is amazing. The brush has two angles so you can create both volume and length. I love it. I wish I could be more frivolous and spend that much on mascara! Back to my all time favourite L'Oreal's Millionize when this runs out!
Hope you like this post, sorry about the mess of the bathroom! I didn't think of the background just the lighting!
