FOTD #12.

Hello everyone, it's face of the day time! 
This was one of those days when I had time to experiment with my makeup, and i love love love how it turned out!

I based this look around trying to create a matte brown eye, and I love the result (so much so that I'm sporting it again as I write this) I paired it with a peach lip, which is as nude as I seem to be able to go, anything else just washes me out of ends up look like a dreaded `concealer lip`.

Ok, so I began as always by priming my face with Rimmel Fix and perfect. I then used the Seventeen Phwoarr paint concealer under my eyes and over blemishes, followed by my Rimmel Match perfection foundation. Next I dusted my Rimmel Stay matte powder all over. After that I contoured my face using my old favourite the Sleek contour kit, and highlighted using the Bourjois Java rice powder over the high-points on my face. My blush choice was Bourjois Healthy mix 41 which add the perfect peachy tone to my face. To compliment and amplify this, on the lips I went for a Rimmel Apocalips in Luna. I used the MUA Pro brow kit and BROWdrama for my eyebrows, and I actually used the kit for my eyes too, sweeping it all over the lid (the darkest colour out of the set) at first and then building up the colour to intensify it in the crease and outer corner. I then look a brown Maybelline eyeliner under my eyes and a tiny bit on my upper lash-line, smudging it out slightly. I finished the whole look off with a few generous coats of my Rimmel Scandaleyes flex mascara

So that's another look I've added to my repertoire! I really like it because I feel like it's a little bit in the smokey eye territory but still perfectly day time appropriate. I've also been more of an eyeshadow than winged liner girl of late (I know what is happening) but I can't say I'm not loving it. 

I also want to thank you for the lovely comments left on my prom post, I couldn't stop smiling after reading every single on of them! In other news, I got a job! I'm not working int the Office concession in House of Fraser and totally loving it :)

What do you think of this look? What have you been up to lately?
