5 Makeup Product FOTD Tag

The beautiful Jenny from My Funny Valentine invited me to participate in the 5 Makeup Product FOTD Tag, so here we go! The challenge is to pick 5 products to create a ‘face of the day’. It’s amazing how many products it takes to achieve a ‘natural’ makeup look, but I tend to wear less makeup on the weekend so I decided to showcase a fairly typical Saturday look for this challenge.

01) Givenchy Photo Perfexion in Perfect Ivory – This is my holy grail foundation. If you’re extremely pale like me, it’s likely that your number one requirement for foundation is a decent colour match. This often means that all other factors fall by the wayside, but lucky for me I’ve managed to find a foundation that ticks ALL the boxes. I used this on my face and up across my eyelid to even everything out and give the illusion of eyeshadow.

02) Stila Convertible Colour Blush in Lillium – I’ve been leaning more towards more natural looking blushes lately, and steering clear of the bright pinks that I used to reach for. Lillium is a neutral pink shade that looks like a natural flush on my cheeks. This is the perfect no-fuss cream blush.

03) Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eye Liner – I rarely wear liquid eyeliner, but when I do I tend to get on a roll and wear it for a few days at a time. I love the Maybelline Master Precise liner because it helps create a very fluid looking line. It’s foolproof for hamfisted folk such as myself.

04) Lancome Hypnose Mascara – This is my all time favourite mascara. This is the perfect mascara. The ultimate. It lengthens and thickens my lashes, and doesn’t transfer to my eyelid (which is something I constantly struggle with when it comes to mascara). It also stays put all day and doesn’t flake underneath the eyes at all.

05) Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Truth – My new favourite lipgloss. I have naturally dark lips, and this is a perfect colour match for them. This could quite easily turn into my ultimate ‘your lips but better’ product.
