Hello everyone! This is my first Face Of The Day!
I usually do 'Get Ready With Me' videos on Youtube, but I can never fill that gap in for my blog, seeing as this isn't a video site! So I've recently decided to do FOTD's for my blog and I really love preparing them.
Today's face used quite a few products and I need to apologise for not doing a 'full face' photo - I focused on the eyes and lips instead, ha!
For my eyes I decided to do a different look instead of my basic brown colours, I love using orange on my eyes, most people don't but I feel like it works with my eye colour, I usually use brows anyway so orange is no different!
Face | For my face I love using the two foundations pictured. They're both Rimmel and I LOVE Rimmel foundations. They seem to get high marks from most people and they work for most people too. I also think they have a good shade range and they have a good range of finishes like matte, dewy etc. I used these two together to get a good finish and to get a good shade colour. They're both the same shade, really, but I liked to mix these to see the outcome that luckily went ok! I stippled the foundation on, as I normally do. I then used the Sunkissed bronzer which is only £1.99 - I absolutely love this and it's inexpensive and lasts a long, long time. It's not overly shimmery too, so you might want to try it out. I then finished everything face wise with my Natural Collection loose powder which I love, love, love!
Eyes | For my brows, I use hardly anything. I never do anything with them but something I've used recently is the W7 Brow Bar. 4 powdered shades that are inexpensive and easy to use. I used an angled brush and applied the left, bottom shade which suits me fine. ON my lid, I used the Maybelline Colour Tattoo which is really nice and I love the shade. I then used my 120 Pro Palette (which isn't MAC!) which is from Ebay and I applied the light brown shade all over my lid, over the Tattoo and up to my brow. Sadly, I use the palette all the time and it's going to feature on my blog a lot, but they don't have shade names so I'll name what MAC alternative there is, seeing as this palette resembles all the MAC shades. I then used the bright orange/coral colour in my outer corner and crease. I used a normal brush for this but then used a blending brush to 'blend out' the orange.. making it less bright and less harsh. These two eyeshadows are the same as 'Soba' and 'Orange'. I then used a basic, unbranded eyeliner to do my top lashes. I used this inside the top lash if you know what I mean, to do a simple line. I then used Maybelline gel liner on my bottom lashes for a small, simple line to elongate my eye shape a bit. For mascara, I used Collection 2000's XXL mascara which came out years ago, but I love it!
Lips | For my lips I used a Barry M glossy tube which I got out of 'Fabulous' magazine ages ago and in the shops it's GT4. I love this colour because it's quite brown, quite red but has no actual shade if you know what I mean? It's very different but I love it. I then mixed this with a bit of Rimmel's Coral In Gold lipstick which I love for the summer as it's not a matte orange it's very shimmery and glossy and moisturising. After, I applied some of Primark lipgloss which has an awful taste but I really like the shade. It's an orange gloss which looks scary, but it's pretty.
That's my makeup for today and I hope you like it! I'm going to do more of these 100% - they're really fun to do and hopefully I'll remember to carry on doing them and then I'll have a little collection of makeup looks through the days.
What did you think of this look?
Have you tried any orange shades this summer?
