FOTD: Work Makeup


Today was my first day back working in my part time job since completing my masters. I thought I would show the typical make-up I tend to wear to work.  

To begin with I applied Rimmel Match Perfection in 201 Classic Beige. I have had this foundation for a while now and originally I hated it but since changing my skincare routine I have a new found love for it. This shade is slightly too dark for me but I just apply Benefit Hoola bronzer down my neck to ensure I don't have the dreaded foundation line. I also applied Nars concealer in the shade pear to brighten under my eyes. 

I was embarrassed to include my Mac creme blush in this photo as it is looking extremely rough, but this is my favourite blush and I reach for it most days. It is in the shade Lilicent and unfortunately it has been discontinued. After I applied my blush, I popped a tiny bit of Jemma's Kidd All Over Radiance Creme on my cheekbones. Can you tell I am a massive fan of creme products? 

On my eyes I used the MUA pallet "Undressed". I applied Shade 5 using my Mac 222 brush and simply applied this to my crease and blend it out. I love the simplicity of this eye look, it gives my eyes depth but it is a very natural look. As my eye look is fairly basic I emphasised my lashes. I applied my Dior Maximiser primer and followed with 17's Va Va Voom mascara. I also lined my waterline and tight-line with Mac's eye kohl in the colour Feline. This has the effect of making my eye colour appear more prominent.

Finally I applied Rimmel Eyebrow pencil in 001 Dark brown through my brows and Kiko lipgloss in Light Pink to my lips to finish the look.
