WHAT'S ON MY FACE | NEUTRAL SHADES





Hello lovelies, first things first please ignore my awful skin at the moment and my unruly brows but I thought I would show you my neutral tones face of make up. As I wasn't really going anywhere this day apart from my local town I didn't bother with any primer, I just popped on my Rimmel 25 hour foundation, it is my up most favorite drugstore foundation. It is medium to full coverage and sticks around all day, I then go in with my concealer, I try to cover my blemishes with Mac studio fix concealer and lighten my under eyes with the Collection lasting concealer in fair as I really like to brighten that area up, especially if I've hardly slept the night before, it makes a huge difference. I then to finish of the base go over with a slight dusting of powder focusing more on my t-zone where I am most oiliest with the Rimmel stay matte powder, this keeps my greasy looking skin at bay and doesn't dry out my skin at all. My next step is brows and I have been adoring the Illamasqua brow cake, it stays around all day and you can make them look as natural or as defined as you wish, one of my favorite things from Illamasqua at the minute. 

After brows its eye shadow, I picked up this stunning shade from the new seventeen range, it is a beigy brown with a hint of shimmer, I have a review coming up soon so I wont say too much but it is so pretty and under five pounds! Then to finish of my eyes I can't help but love a liquid eye liner, for a change though and after going to the Bobbi Brown event I am now addicted to their gel eyeliner*, I always thought that gel eye liners where for pros, but they are so simple to use especially if you have the right tool for the job. It glides on like a dream and stays put all day with no smudges or gunky bits in your eyes like some eyeliners tend to do, I am totally converted! I have also been loving their smokey eye mascara*, it volumises and lengthens, what more do you want in a mascara? It is super black opaque and makes your eye lashes really stand out. 

After eyes I usually go onto contouring or some bronzer but I skipped that step this time and went straight on to blusher, again I have a review coming up of this soon but this Benefit Majorette cream blush to powder is just stunning and smells divine. I also added a touch of highlighter to illuminate my skin a little, Illamasqua highlighter* in gleam was quite a strange product to me at first as when I swatched it I wasn't expecting it to be creamy/liquidy. It was very strange in texture but it does give a nice 'geam' to the skin without being too much, it makes the top of your cheeks pop and a touch of sheen to the skin, it's lovely. Then to finish of my look I went in with the Lancome Lip lover lipgloss in 314 a lovely pinky nude, for a lipgloss this sticks around for quite a bit and isn't sticky at all its very nice and pretty. 

What neutral shade products do you love?
