An everyday FOTD

I hate taking pics for FOTDs because I hate having my photo taken in general so it just turns into an ordeal as I furiously snap about 60 pictures for 2 bloody shots! If I had my way I wouldn't do them at all, but I appreciate that it helps to see what a product looks like at times and I enjoy looking at them (other peoples that is, not mine LOL) myself.

Today's face was nothing special, just an ordinary look with minimal fuss.



Excuse the eyebrows, I'm fully aware they're shocking at the moment but I don't have time to get to my threading salon 'til the weekend, so whatever!

Face:
MAC Mineralize Satinfinish foundation NW43
MAC Loose Powder NC50
Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tint in Sheer Pink

Eyes:
MAC Cork over lid
MAC Satin Taupe faintly in crease
YSL Faux Cils mascara
MAC Feline on 1/2 of waterline and set with MAC Carbon e/s

Lips:
MAC Siss l/s and Revlon Super Lustrous lipgloss in High Beam Tan

Thanks for your lovely comments xx

The BB blush is nice but you have to build it up gradually and blend loads or it can look greasy!

VexintheCity said...

@Imo & Henessy - I find Satinfinish oay, I just blot a lot. I like the glow it gives me though.

@Jo- Hmmm I'll try a pink lips look soon x
