Make up of the day - Easter Sunday

Friday, April 25, 2014

Hey lovelies,

I thought I'd do a quick post on the makeup I wore on Easter Sunday. It's rare for me to wear a full face of make up. I just don't have time but I am trying to wear it a bit and I am getting better.

The main reason i'm posting this is because not only did I actually take some pictures I got a compliment from my gran at how nice my make up looked!



Base:

Rimmel Fix and Perfect primer. I love this stuff. this is my second tube. I'm not one for repeate purchases so for me to re-buy I must love it. I do have a question about primer. When you put it one are you meant to wait before putting foundation on or should you put your foundation on right away? Any advice would be much appricated.
 ELF Eye primer - I've only ever used three eye primers, this one, an MUA one and an Urban decay one and I can't tell the differnce between them. I don't know enough to say if it's any good or not and I haven't noticed if my eye make up stays on longer or not (I mess with my eyes a lot so tbh I don't know why I bother)

I forgot to use concealer. The one i've got is a bit too light but I think it's a highlighter as well.

Foundation- another rimmel one. I can't remember the name but I really like it. I struggle to get the perfect foundation and this one works for me.

I used my real techniques sponge to apply. The sponge is nice to work with but it has split after one or two uses.

Powder Bonjouris, I bought this one a whim. I had one a few years ago that i really liked but this one i'm not sure about but I have only used it a couple of times.

I used the gold real techniques brush to apply.

Blusher - Rimmel stay blushed. this is a really nice creamy blusher. a little goes a long way. i tend to dab it on with my fingers and blend it with the point end of the real techniques sponge.

Eyes:

Eyebrows - HD Pallet - I got this in a beauty box and it's brill. there are 3 shades from medium to almost black. I find it to be really natural looking on me.

Eyeline - Essence pencil, I love this eye pencil. I have a few but it's the one I go back to. I'm not sure if you can get essence over here. I got this one in Berlin and my mum is under orders to bring me back another one from her holiday to spain.

Eye shaddow - MUA matt. I got this with the intention of wearing it for work as i find every other pallet i have has glitter in which for me is too much. I'm glad I got it and sadly it's far too under used.

Mascara - L'oreal manga eyes. This is also from a beauty box and I really like it.

Lips - I was going to wear the sleek gloss but at the last second I went for a MUA red.


A slghtly blurry selfie but this is my finished face.
