I thought I would start the week off with a post I haven’t done before; one about the products I am currently using to make myself look acceptable on an average day. I work in a customer facing job and try to keep my everyday makeup pretty simple so that it doesn’t look crazy or starts sliding off my face after a stressful day. (I’m not suggesting my face is very oily btw)
I start off with foundation and am currently using Rimmel Match Perfection in Ivory. This foundation is fab and my go to base as it gives great coverage but is not overly thick looking. I am a pale person (Caspar the ghost pale) so I always want to be careful that I don’t get a line on my jaw with any foundation. I have a couple of these foundations so that I don’t run out anytime soon and will continue to use this one in the future.
I then use a dab of Rimmel Stay Matte Mousse Foundation in Ivory again as a touch up to conceal any imperfections that have snuck their way through the base foundation. This has been a go to product of mine for a couple of years now and i can’t see myself giving it up anytime soon.
Next I have been using Soap & glory Thick & fast mascara on my lashes everyday. It is lovely and light and the brush doesn’t give me a clumpy look like spiders legs which i cannot stand. it looks lovely and natural and i absolutely love the effect it has.
Lastly I try to use a bit of bronzer to highlight my cheeks and the occasional light shade of eyeshadow on my lids. I don’t use much, just a mere smattering of colour to give some warmth to my face and look less pasty and ghostlike. Currently I am using a palette that’s from Next and I absolutely love all the metallic eyeshadow shades and the lovely bronzer shades in it.
I don’t mix up my makeup a great deal as once I find a good product, I tend to stick to it. For a night out I would use a different mascara maybe and darker eye shadow shades but my base doesn’t change at all really.
Have you shared your everyday face makeup recently? and can you recommend any products to me?
Hope you enjoyed this post.
I have recently changed phones to a brand spanking new Apple iPhone 6, which I am loving compared to my old iPhone 4S. Yes I do consider myself an Apple nerd but I can’t imagine using any other phone nowadays. Now I have changed phone, I have been spending a large amount of time scouring the web for a new phone case. I came across Wrappz through Facebook and saw that they do personalised phone cases as well as laptop skins, personalised cushions and other gifts.
I have always wanted a personalised phone case of my own to have some of my wonderful pictures on there of family, friends and places i have visited. I have been lucky enough to visit mexico and Florida in the last 2 years and wanted to feature my photos in something personalised. They make phone skins for all sorts of phones including Apple, Samsung and Google and many others which you can find HERE!
(above are some of the pictures I am thinking of putting on mine)
On the personalised cases page you can select how many pictures you would like to feature on your phone case; 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8 depending on how big you would like them to be obviously. it’s a fantastic service and I have a lovely discount code for you all to use if you want to buy one for yourself.
The discount code is for personalised phone cases and is…
So quick, head over now to HERE and don’t miss out on this fab discount and great way for a unique new phone case.
In case you haven’t noticed from my twitter feed, I love a good competition. I started entering them back in September 2013 as a bit of fun and to kill some boredom one day but it has become a bit of a habit now that I can’t really break. I have been lucky enough to win some lovely prizes over the last 18 months and always enter things I would like myself as a general rule of thumb. I read about some crazy people who enter everything possible even though they won’t need half of it.
I entered a couple of bloggers competitions this year and was very fortunate enough to win a bottle of perfume from Yves Rocher. I was very excited as it is a brand I have heard of but never had the good fortune to try any of their products and wouldn’t know where to start really. The perfume I won is Le Parfum Comme Une Evidence. It came in a really square box but when i pulled the bottle out, I was so pleased with how it looked.
The bottle is super pretty and has a very french sophisticated feel to it with a pink effect to it all. The smell is also something else. I am always wary of new fragrances in case they don’t agree with me but this one is lovely. very musky sensual smell which I really like. I don’t like perfumes that are too sweet and sickly smelling. This one is fab and I will use it time and again I know for sure.
I think this fragrance would be ideal for a special occasion or a nice meal. I don’t think I would wear it day-to-day for work as I wear a very fresh floral scent for work but I love the perfume and having looked at their website, I love a lot of their products as well. I may have to indulge in a little spending soon once I achieve my clear out of other products first.
I hope you enjoyed this little perfume review post. Let me know if you have tried this perfume out or any of the other Yves Rocher fragrances…
