A Few Everyday Favourites (FOTD)

 I never do daily makeup post or face of the days (FOTD) but since I had some time on my hand I thought I would quickly share why I was wearing yesterday.
Please ignore my eyebrows this was just before I got them done.
 On my face I am wearing Revlon Colorstay in Fresh Beige, I think this is a stable foundation in any collection as it isn't expensive but offers quite good coverage on those days you need it. If you have tried this and found it didn't work for you I would recommend trying the one for a different skin type, for years I was using the one aimed at oily skin but in fact the one for dry skin works far better on me. As a concealer I was wearing my trusty Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Medium.
 I didn't put anything in my eyebrows as I didn't want to draw any attention to them as they were quite messy. One my checks, around my temple and a little on the sides of my nose I am wearing my Sleek Contour Kit which I use almost everyday and is a handbag essential for me.

On my lips I started with a Front Cover lip liner which doesn't seem to have a name, I then put on top Mac Modesty Lipstick finished with a Barry M Glossy tube in No4, I love this combination!
 (Nice close up of my messy eyebrows!)
On my eyes I am wearing...
Mac Rubenesque Paintpot as a base
Mac All That Glitters Eyeshadow all over the lid
Mac Antiqued Eyeshadow (which is a favourite!) lightly in the crease and under the eye
& an ELF white eyeshadow as a highligh
I use my usual Loreal Carbon Gloss eyeliner on top, Soap & Glory Pencil eyeliner to line the top of the inside of my eye and a pale No7 colour on my water line. After curling my lashes I used Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara.

Hope you liked my very simple look.
Also in the comments let me know if you would like to see more of these post and if you would like a liquid eyeliner how-to
