I have a confession I say this is my everyday fotd but in reality recently I’ve been rocking the bare faced look more often than not.

I’ve tried to go bare faced as much as possible to give my skin a bit of air. It’s been a bit of pain recently and I’ve not liked the look of the foundations/powders on my skin. The only combination I’ve been happy with when I have been reaching for my makeup stash has been Origins Vitazing as the base for a bit of extra colour and to try and smooth out the appearance of my skin tone. Especially after the crop of freckles appeared after being in the sun last time it was great weather. The tea tree primer from The Body Shop does a great job at keeping the base on as long as possible and helps keep spots at bay.

I use the Maybelline fit me concealer to make sure that any areas that need extra coverage  are sorted. I have quite bad dark circles under my eyes and scarring on my chin and forehead. This concealer is great for serious coverage with a natural look, not cakey at all. To set the face I use my Lush emotional brilliance translucent powder under my eyes and my MAC Mineralised Skinfinish in Light to keep the rest of my face in place.

I then use my Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting powder as a contour on my cheeks and MAC Mineralised Skinfinish in Lightscapade to highlight the top of my cheekbones. For an added bit of colour I’ve been reaching for my limited edition Marilyn which gives a nice natural matte pop too the cheeks.

For the eyes I’ve just been sticking with my always favourite Soap And Glory Super Cat Liner for a line and small cat flick and a flash of my current favourite mascara Maybelline Big Eyes. Then to frame my eyes I use a few strokes of Benefits GimmeBrow just to add an easy bit of colour to them.

Have you tried any of these products? I’d love to hear how you’ve got on with any of them.
