FOTD | My Everyday Look

Its taken me quite a while to find an 'everyday look' for me that I really love. I've never really had a 'look' that I wear often, I tend to mix things up a lot. However whilst doing my makeup today I think I've created a look that I will be re-creating again and again! I guess you could call it my Eureka moment.

This look is SO simple but I really love it. 

First I primed my eyelids with the ELF Primer which isn't the best primer ever but the only one I had at the time. Then I applied a thin layer of my Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Permanent Taupe all over my lid using my finger. This is my favourite base to use for any neutral eye look.

Over the top I applied Tease from my UD Naked2 Palette all over my lid using the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush. Then using a Real Techniques Brow Brush I lined my upper lash line with Blackout, I then blended it out a little with my finger. Finally I used Bootycall on the inner corners of my eyes to brighten the look.

I then lined my tightline with the 17 Gel Eyeliner in Black with a eyeliner brush and I used the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeliner in Nude on my waterline. To finish off the eyes I applied one coat of the Vivo VPL Mascara* to my top and bottom lashes

For blush I used Revlon's Cream Blush in Pinched. I used my Real Techniques Contour Brush to apply it and I love the subtle coral glow it gives my cheeks. I then used Benefit High Beam on the high points of my face like my cheek bones and cupid's bow.

I skipped foundation, its not something I wear everyday, and just used my Collection Concealer and set it with my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

Finally I used my MAC Lipstick in Angel, this has quickly become my favourite lipstick!

I really love my makeup in this FOTD, its not bold or bright, its me. I've never been one for a red lip or a dark smokey eye, I much prefer to wear a neutral eye with a pink lip.

Do you prefer to sport a bold makeup look or ,like me, are you more a neutrals girl?

Thanks for reading,
