I do like a good ol’ excuse to take a picture of pretty looking makeup – and a post about my current everyday makeup always seems like the perfect time to snap away. I have been getting better at rotating products around and getting some use out of things that I haven’t picked up in a while. But I somehow always manage to find a reason to throw on my current faves; Maybelline Clear Glow BB Stick, Revlon Growluscious Mascara – you know the deal 😉

Posting ‘Face Of The Days’ is hard – I never really have a ‘look’ that I want to snap at 7am in the morning on the weekdays and then most weekends I’m makeup-free! But I found this photo hanging around from a family thing I went to last weekend and thought I would pop it up 🙂 It was a casual Sunday meet-up so I didn’t want to go too crazy, so I just wore my usual everyday base, with a wash of colour over the lids from my new Covergirl palette and a slightly brown toned lip….

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.
