So I thought I’d do a quick MUOTD with just what I wore today, I am working an event so I’ve been told what to wear and how to do my hair and make up.
So it is always important to start with a good base. Like always I used my Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer in normal/combination skin, I do not honestly know how I would cope without this my make up is nothing without this. So I would always suggest to start with a primer not necessarily this one any that suit yours skin type . Available at Boots and Superdrug for £4.99.
Next up foundation, my fail safe NYC All Day Long Foundation in shade 737 Classic Ivory and although it goes on nice and the colour suit me I’m not happy with the coverage as it offers a light/medium but not especially buildable, so this may not be my go to foundation in the foreseeable future. However, this has been my go to foundation for years as its always suited me and is great when on a budget. Available at Superdrug for £3.99.
It was not my day today I am currently suffering from a major break out and massive dark circles and my concealer wasn’t doing the job. So I used my mums NYC Cover Stick in shade light, its in those typical lipstick packaging and lipstick style but it goes on so nice, offers high coverage and blends so smoothly. I am highly considering buying my own next time I’m in town. Available at Superdrug for £1.79.
I just use my hands to apply and blend my foundation and concealer, but am looking into investing into some brushes.
I was told to only have lightly flushed cheeks so I went for my lovely MUA Blusher in lolly, I wear this most days and it adds such a nice flush. I love it I’m definitely going to buy some more of these. Available from MUA and Superdrug for £1.00.
The brush is a cosmopolitan brush which I love, my sister got a tin of them as a gift years ago and she never really used them so I stole the blush one its so smooth and thick. It washes really well and bristles have never fallen out, however I can no longer find them anywhere.
On my eyes I used my Avon True Colour Duo in Warm Cashmere, I brought it brand new on ebay for a couple of quid and its such a subtle matt duo that is good for every day and it is so compact so will be great for travel. I placed the lighter colour all over my lid and the darker in my crease and just under my eye, I love it for subtle every day. Available from Avon for £6.00.
For my brushes I have an eye shadow brush/blending brush and a slanted brush. My eyeshadow brush is a very old Ruby and Millie Eyeshadow Brush, I own two of them and they lasted so well I’d love to get more of their brushes but unfortunately they pulled out of boots a few years ago and I cannot find them online anywhere so if anyone knows where to find them let me know.
Then I have my Body Shop Slanted Brush, I love it its perfect I use it for eyeliner on the lid and under the eye and sometimes for my crease, it could also be used for eyebrows. Its just such a lovely high quality brush, I brought it with a 40% off code that the body shop regularly do but I’d happily pay full price. This is my first body shop brush and I’d happily buy more I am considering getting a set to save the money. Available at the Body Shop for £9.00.
As I was working an event I wanted my make up to stay put all day so I used the MUA Pro-Base Fixing Mist, I don’t use this all the time and usually I put it on after all my make up but I wanted nothing to budge so I put some on after each layer. Then my powder over the top to finish it off. Available at MUA and Superdrug for £5.00.
And finally I fix my make up with my Collection Pressed Power in Ivory and I just dust it on my face mainly focusing on my t zone. I use a kabuki brush for my powder which I got as a christmas present years ago but I have no idea what brand it is as it has since rubbed off the handle. Collection Pressed Powder is available from Boots for £1.99.
Also I didn’t take a picture but I used two more products. For mascara I used MUA Extreme Volume Mascara, which adds volume nicely and doesn’t cause clumping. It doesn’t do anything amazing, just adds a nice amount volume so your lashes look full and natural. Available from MUA or Superdrug for £2.00.
I had to have nude/natural lips, so instead of lipstick I opted for my Barry M Cor Balmy lip balms in shade CB1 Adam and Eve, its meant to be tinted but it is such a light pink you don’t really notice. Its working wonders on my lips leaving them smooth and hydrated and it smells amazing. I have previously done a review on this so if you want to read that click here. Available at Boots and Superdrug for £3.49.
So that’s what’s plastered on my face today, hope you enjoyed been nosey.
