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.

FOTN – Dinner & Drinks

I rarely post FOTN images because the last thing I want to do is subject you all to images of my ugly mug, but as I used all of the winter makeup goodies that I mentioned in my previous post I thought it might be worthwhile sharing. On my face is the NP Set Calming Pre-Foundation Primer, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in Light, Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation in Perfect Ivory, YSL Touche Eclat in #1, Face of Australia Loose Powder in Outback Translucent, Urban Decay Primer Potion, MAC Eyeshadow in Blanc Type (all over lid), MAC Eyeshadow in Phloof! (browbone higlight), Napoleon Perdis Loose Dust in #36 (light dusting all over lid), Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel eyeliner in Black Ink, Benefit They’re Real Mascara, CK Brow Pencil in Brunette, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface, Benefit High Beam, Clinique Chubby Stick in Super Strawberry and NP Set Lip Gloss in Hawaii. Phew!
