My Face Friday #2




I was really getting into this 17 Skin Wow Primer (£5.99) but realised when applying it for this My Face Friday it has a lot of shimmer in it, some might say too much but I really want to find a replacement that gives me a glow rather than a glitterball face. I went with my trusty Bourjois Reveal Healthy Mix Serum Foundation (£9.99) applied with my fingers and set with the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder (£3.99) using the Real Techniques Powder Brush (£12.99). I couldn't get into this for ages as I found it either turned out looking cakey or my foundation rubbed off but I now make sure I tap off all excess powder and press onto my skin with the powder brush rather than swirling around my face. To complete my base I cover up any blemishes and scarring that is still visible with the Seventeen 18hour concealer (I can't seem to find it anymore on the Boots website) and also apply to my under eyes to hide those pesky dark areas.

For eyes I have been doing the same thing all week, applying the darkest shade out of the Smashbox Brow Tech Trio (£12.30) (Something similar here $25) to create a subtle winged eye and a couple coats of the favourite Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara (£7.99) and my eyes are done.

Now onto the eyebrows, if I had to leave the house having done one thing...it would be my eyebrows every single time! I am using the Maybelline Eye Studio Master Shape Brown (£2.99), it's so cheap and some may not like it as it is quite waxy but once combed through with the spoilie on the other end lessens the wax and it really keeps my unruly eyebrows in check. To make doubly sure of this I run the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara (£4.99) through them which adds a little more colour as well. 

All that's left is adding some colour to my face, As you can see I am fairly well-endowed when it comes to the cheek department so contouring is a must. I use the Sleek Contour Kit in Light (£6.49) which is a gorgeous matte brown that isn't too orange. I can't wait until I use this up as the Kevyn Aucoin sculpting powder is next on the list. For a bit of a flush I use my newest blush purchase, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour in Tipsy ($26) which is flattering on every skin tone and the Real Techniques Stippling Brush (£11.99) is the perfect brush for applying it. a quick coat of the Burts Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranite Oil (£3.69) which gives a little colour and nourishes my dry lips.

Have you used any of these products?
