Almay Line Smoothing Concealer & Bath & Body Works Body Lotion in Country Apple

If you knew me in real life, you will probably be bored of my constant droning on about my 6.45am wake up call. During the Summer months I didn’t find it too bad, but as Autumn draws closer I’m finding it increasingly difficult to tear myself away from my warm sleepy cloud. In fact, yesterday I snoozed my alarm for 45 minutes (and yes I did have to run for the train). But there are 2 products that are making the dreary mornings slightly easier, both I have spoken about before….

So aside from the new addition of ‘The Weekend Post’ series to my blog, I thought about making something else a more regular feature – Face Of The Days! Or ‘FOTD’s’ as they are more widely known 😉 Aside from Monthly Favourite’s posts or videos, these are my absolute fav to read! It’s always nice to know what products people are using and loving, but it’s one step better to see how they actually look on their face, right? I’m aiming for 1 a week, now don’t get too excited here as I’m sure you will be seeing my 7am face a lot, and I’m warning you it ain’t pretty 😉 I took this picture last week, but I’ve pretty much been wearing the same makeup since, so……

After my ‘I Couldn’t Resist’ post last week in which I showcased my most recent Almay purchase, a few of you asked to see them together in a ‘Face of The Day’ – when you ladies ask I deliver, so here is a quick photo that I rustled up at 7am this morning…

In all honesty it’s a very rare occasion when I decide to go all out with my makeup. You guys know me, I may be obsessed with cosmetics, but when it comes to what I actually wear on my face day to day I like to keep it very simple. However on a rather now infrequent night out I sometimes do decide to slap it on. To take my look from mundane to marvellous there are 4 products that I always rely on….

Current lipstick love swatch

I tried to think of some ‘witty’ title for this post but with no avail. ‘Current Lipstick Love’ gets right to the point doesn’t it 😉 If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that I go through phases with lipstick; sometimes I can’t get enough, other times I prefer to ditch the lipstick pile on the gloss (Revlon Brown Sugar is my glossing weapon of choice). But recently I have been re-embracing my sizeable lipstick collection. Ones like Rimmel Alarm and Faces Black Cherry will always be at the top of the pile, but my new love is a lipstick that has been hanging around for a while, over a year actually (naughty) – it’s Rimmel Burgundy Shine.

This past weekend was a massive success. After a night of partying on the Friday (and dancing around like a madwoman to that ‘Turn Down for What’ song), me and my old college friends chilled out with some serious Game of Thrones time on Saturday, before I trekked back on Sunday – A-mazing! And I have to say that for once I packed extremely light for my weekend away! I took my usual makeup bag and filled it with the minimum amount of makeup that was acceptable for a beauty blogger 😉 And that meant that I wore the same makeup 3 days in a row – shocking I know!

So you know I’m always blabbering on about how little time I have in the morning so need to stick to quite simple and quick makeup blah blah? Well due to my job, and even earlier commute to work than before, my morning routine has all of about 2 minutes that allows for a bit of preening. So I have been shoving products on my face even quicker than ever before! You wanna know what products were lovingly ‘shoved on’ this morning? Well let me show you.
