FOTD | bareMinerals Body Confidence

About a month ago it was Body Confidence Week and the 2014 Body Confidence Awards and bareMinerals hosted the first ever makeup suite to take place in the Houses of Parliament. Bare Minerals recommended products to people their to help them feel their most confident, SJ Froom who is a international makeup artist for bareMinerals said 'Makeup should not be used as a mask or to hide who you are, but simply to bring out every woman's true natural beauty helping you to feel the best you possibly can and to look like you but on your best day yet!' I really agree with that, I don't wear makeup to cover up my face but more to enhance my features and it always gives me more confidence. I thought I'd share a 'makeup look' that makes me feel a lot more confident as a little celebration of Body Confidence Week, I know I'm a bit late but I didn't have time to write up this post before my holiday unfortunately, better late than never though!

There are two products that always give me more confidence, mascara and concealer. I feel like my face is so naked without mascara on these days, it opens up my eyes a lot more and gives them definition. I've talked about this bareMinerals mascara on my blog before as well, it is definitely my favourite mascara because it gives me volume and length without clumping. Of course there is only one concealer I ever reach for, the Collection one will always be in my makeup bag. More recently as well I've been wearing foundation which has given me so much more confidence, I don't like having lots of coverage but wearing something to just even out my skintone a bit is nice. I'm really enjoying using the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation at the moment, the finish brightens up my skin a lot and the shade I have is a near perfect match!
The bareMinerals lipstick is new to my makeup bag as well and I've been loving using it as I'm a big fan of soft muted pinks and the formula is really moisturising also. It isn't a really bright shade either so it's lovely for Autumn/Winter, lipstick definitely gives me more confidence than lipgloss does. Another new product that I'm using at the moment is the Makeup Revolution dual ended brow product, it is perfect for me as I don't like doing much to my brows but enough to leave me feeling a little more confident. I'll definitely be doing a full post on this product soon!
These days I'm happy to leave the house without makeup but I definitely do feel more confident wearing it!
What products leave you feeling more confident?
