Daily Face

I don't normally wear make-up on a daily basis, I've said before I do like my skin to breathe and then when push comes to shove, I beat it when needed. While cleaning my make-up and putting it away, I thought why not show what I do wear on just an ordinary day.

I'm a foundation whore, never can stay with one loyally. I play the field and from the last quarter of 2013 I've been using this Barry M Oil Free Foundation. I've not fallen into a problem with it in terms of break-outs *hooray* I apply it using Real Techniques Sponge as I like the finish. Yet the foundation would be nothing without a primer. Primer is important for everyone who likes their make-up to last and that's everyone. I've been using this Laura Geller trio which is an eye / lip / face primer. This does contain Dimethicone (silicone) & a few parabens, therefore for some it might not be ideal. Another product I've had not an issue with and I do like how my foundation can last, a little goes a long way - too much & there's a film texture - not good. Ben Nye Banana Powder & Concealer, my two trusty and needed items, cover up those dark areas or blemishes and sweep some powder under the eyes. Enjoying a Bardot feline flick, gel eyeliner is always a must for me, glides on the lid, lash & waterline. Sleek MakeUP lethal length mascara, had a good few compliments with this mascara, I find that unlike some others I can get two layers without a spider lash effect, it keeps the length without any flaking and breaking off during the day. ALWAYS apply my ointment before I start my make-up to let it sink in and moisturise deeply before wiping off the access and applying my lipstick, I normally use my Apocalips in Shooting Star if my eyes are going to be heavy. The Sleek MakeUP blush in Suede is my favourite contour for daily use and popping on Illamasqua lover just gives a nice overall finish. Setting I use my MAC Prep + Primetransparent finishing powder (not pictured)

After all that, how much am I wearing on my daily face? £115.20 worth. Erm, yeah! I think my skincare is cheaper or that of natural beauty lol.
