What's on my face #1

I thought it was high time I start taking note of the makeup I wear when I'm heading out to launches or events.  This is because I tend to use the same things all the time and need to shake things up a bit! So for the next while, I'll do my best to try new things and show them in action.  In saying that, last night I was in a mad rush as I'd just over an hour to come home, feed Bailey, have a shower and put my makeup on before running out the door to meet Joanne.  So I decided to use what I know and trust because time was short!

Products used:
  • Smashbox Liquid Halo foundation Shade 1 - review
  • Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder - Diffused Light - review
  • Clinique Cheek Pop - Peach Pop - review
  • Shiseido Sheer Eye Zone Corrector
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wix - review
  • Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara - review
  • Smashbox Full Exposure Palette - review

I applied a thin layer of the Smashbox Liquid Halo Foundation to even out my skin tone and still let my skin show through.  I love how I can't even see it on my face and it looks like I have grand skin altogether!  A quick application of the Shiseido Sheer Eye Zone Corrector helped hide my dark circles and brightened under my eyes which is what I needed before piling on the eye makeup.  Speaking of which, I decided to do a soft brown smokey eye using the warmer matte shades in the Full Exposure palette from Smashbox.  This palette has yet to fail me and I blahddy love it!

I used my trusty Brow Wiz from Anastasia to shape and define my brows before applying a generous coat of the Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde mascara to top and bottom lashes.  I lashed on a layer of my Clinique Cheek Pop in Peach Pop and dusted a light coat of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light which gets rid of any shine on my forehead and schnoz and softens the whole look.  I applied Shiseido Lacquer Gloss in Baby Doll before running out the door in a panic because I was late!

This is one of my go to looks when I want to look put together but with a bit of drama on the eyes.  I wore it to The Bops last night and you'll see it on my visage in a vlog of the night too!

Happy Friday everyone!


  1. You look fab!
    Maybe a bit strange, but after reading this I'm considering starting a series in which I each week choose a palette from my stash and use that throughout the week Just have to get some of the stuff I've ordered home first so I can include Naked 3 and a Makeup Revoution palette :p

  2. You look gawjus! I just got my Diffused Light powder and am falling in love with it!

  3. Beautiful, my skin's in bits at the mo, every foundation makes it look super dry and nothing glides on anymore :-( (all since I started using the new Vichy cream with the retinol). if you can think of a good foundation which doesn't cling to dry patches please let me know x

  4. I don't understand how you haven't hit pan on that palette yet missus! Love the look X
