Happy New Year All, I thought I would start my fresh first post in January with a 'face of the day' post, I also now plan to do a fotd once a month in 2015 as I like playing around with new looks and it shows all you lot the products I have been using. I hope all of you have recovered from the drunk fueled festivities and feeling fresh and excited for new adventures that this year may bring you and you enjoy reading my blog throughout the year.

Rimmel 25 Hour Lasting finish foundation with comfort serum, Soft beige - I most likely always start my day with this stuff, it is my favorite foundation. If I'm not going anywhere special I tend to just ditch the primer in all honesty and I don't even need it with this foundation it stays put all day, doesn't go patchy or oxidase throughout the day it just stays lovingly on my face, what a gem. 

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, Fair - Again one of my most used favorites, this concealer is just the bees knees, it is super affordable, lasts all day, creamy and covers pimples and big black bags a treat, well almost hides the bags.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, Peach glow - I use this daily too, I have had this powder for absolute ages and although I have hit pan it just keeps going and going, under five pounds and keeps my make up put a treat, I went for peach glow as I think it gives my skin a little pick me up, it isn't cakey at all and feels silky smooth on my skin.

Illamasqua Brow Cake, Thunder - This has been the best purchase for my eyebrows, I have tried lots of high street brands and there all great and do the job but this stuff will just sit fab on your brows and not budge at all through out the day, you can be as natural as you like with this or do big bold define eye brows, whatever takes your fancy, well worth investing in though.

Make Up Revolution Aqua Seal Liquid Eye Primer*
Make Up Revolution Pure Pigments, Agonise* - I mixed these both together for the perfect base, the liquid eye primer is amazing, super cheap but keeps your eye make up look on for hours! I was so impressed with this and mixing this with this pigment or a mac pigment just makes the eye look more intense, lasts for ages and leaves no creases at all, but I wasn't after a creamy/wet eye shadow look so after I mixed the both together and created the perfect base I dabbed a bit more of the pigment on with a different eye brush and created a more intense brown/smokey eye look which I loved.

Make Up Revolution All day and night eyeliner, Channeling my inner* - For a pretty but more subtle look to the normal black dramatic eyeliner I usually go for on top I chose this stunning bronze eyeliner to break the eye shadow up a bit and add a bit more definition. 

Max Factor Masterpiece transform high impact volumising mascara, Black - The wand itself as a little arch going up to create those high impact volumising lashes with the tiniest bristles to make sure your eye lashes have no nasty clumps involved. It really makes your lashes stand out, volumising and lengthens them immensely, fab Christmas present of the mother in law.

Bare Minerals Bronzer, Faux tan - This bronzer is so smooth and soft on my skin it glides on a treat for the perfect subtle contour or a bronze all over the skin.

Seventeen Blusher, First flush* - This is quite a dark pink blusher, very warm undertones perfect for winter to give your cheeks a flushed look, rosy but warm and I have been using this a lot lately its beautiful and so affordable.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish, Soft and Gentle - This is my favorite highlighter, can you see the glow above my cheek bones? I always get complimented on this whenever I wear it, my mum loves it! It makes my skin look so radiant and glowy with the most gorgeous iridescent sparkles. 

Rimmel Vinyl Jelly Gloss lip liner, Choccie - I think my mother in law gave me this a couple of months ago as she said she never wore it and to be honest it had been in my muji storage for a while till I thought finally I'll try this out, I used this all over the lips for a base and coated it with the Clarins Natural lip perfector for a nude/brown lip. I am not one for the brown lip but this is growing on me.

Clarins Natural lip perfector, 06 - I am in love with this, it isn't sticky or gloopy at all it glides on my lips like a dream and makes them feel smooth and supple, although you can see I have very dry lips at the moment this made me lips feel so smooth after application and gives out such a subtle nude lip, perfect with any eye look and a very handy size for your handbag if needed for touch ups.

I hope you liked this months quite neutral make up look, I love face of the day posts so if you have posted one recently be sure to pop your link to it below in the comments.
