Makeup Of The Day

Hey! Today I wanted to do a Makeup Of The Day because I have really enjoyed using these products in the past and altogether using these you can achieve a perfect 'No Makeup, Makeup Look' as some might call it.  (There is no mascara included as I am not enjoying using any mascaras enough to recommend them : ). This kind of look is perfect to use on an everyday basis, it very natural and good if you are just starting out in makeup!

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer - The Fit Me concealer is a low coverage liquid concealer and is stored in a tube container which, just putting it out there, is awful! It oozes out every time you screw the lid back on and does not make for a clean travel bag. Aside from this, the actual concealer is quite good. Its thin consistency makes it easy to apply but I recommend putting the product on your hand first so you can more accurately dab it on your face to make sure it doesn't get too cakey. Mine is in the shade 20 but unfortunately they have very limited shade choices so if you have pinky undertones then this is probably not the best concealer for you as the Fit Me concealer is very orange toned on the skin.

Boujouir Blush No. 48 - This cute little blusher comes in a small little pot making it perfect for travel. It is a very deep pink colour and just a bit darker pink than the shade you usually blush. It looks very pretty on the cheeks as it just adds a soft glow to your complexion making it perfect for this look. The pigmentation of the product is quite sheer but I feel like it needs to be if it is this kind of colour that can look quite unnatural if applied heavily. The brush I use with this blusher is the 'Zoeva Luxe Sheer Cheek' and this is and angled brush which is quite fluffy. This means that just the right amount of product goes on your cheeks.

Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo Leather Effect - My colour tattoo is in the shade Creamy Beige and this is like a browny mauve colour which looks very natural on the eye lids. It is a cream eye shadow which means it has a very creamy consistency and so can easily be applied  using your finger and glides on smoothly. These shadows are extremely highly pigmented but because of the nature of the product you can apply however much you want depending on the look you are going for. They are very long lasting and because of this it can be very hard to cleanse them off and this is one of the only down sides to them. However, I suppose if you had an ultra long day then they would be perfect!

Clinique Quickliner in 01 Intense Black - This eyeliner is one of my favourites as it quite similar to a thin crayon. I like to use this in the waterline which gives a more defined feel to the eyes and is great for naturally making your eyes appear bigger without being too ott! The eyeliner is very pigmented and can easily draw a straight black line on the eyelid if you want to go for a more dramatic look or you can even smudge it out to create a smoky eye effect. There are different ways you can apply this depending on what perception of your eyes you want to give. If you have very round eyes you should fill in all of your waterline to make your eyes seem more round and vice versa. However, be careful to not make the line too bold as it can become a bit bottom heavy!

The L'Oreal Collection Exclusive by Eva - This is one of my favourite ever lipsticks, as it is a pinky nude and I just love a pinky nude : ) However, in pictures it can look slightly orangey and this links into one of its problems. The lipstick tends to change colour depending on the temperature it is at so I like to wear it on quite warm days as it seems more pink on these days. Unfortunately, this can get a bit annoying as on some days it looks completely wrong on me and then some days I love it! This lipstick is quite sheer and this means that you can just easily touch it up throughout the day without even a mirror!
