I don’t do Face of the Day posts often because I don’t usually switch up my makeup that much but with the slight change in Muscat’s weather and lots of autumnal feels coming my way through YouTube and Instagram, I was feeling excited and decided to do my makeup a bit differently. Most of the products I am using are stuff I bought recently and haven’t spoken about yet on the blog but they will be up soon, doncha worry! 😀
Starting off, I have been trying a primer. It is Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer. I haven’t tried any before so I don’t really have much to compare it with. I use it before applying my foundation and I have noticed it does keep most of my makeup in place for a long time. I don’t wear it that often but whenever I do, it been a good experience.
Next is a new foundation I’ve been trying. It is Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hr Nude with SPF 20. This one has been amazing on my skin. As the summer was horrendous this year and my face was basically being an oil zone, this foundation gave me a medium to full coverage and lasted as the name suggests for a whole day without budging. Our autumn is going to be summer only but a little less sweaty so I am sticking with this foundation. I take a pump of it and spread it all over my face using my fingers tips. I am being super lazy so my face brush is getting a bit of time off this season.
I am not doing anything special with the cheeks except bronzing them. I have picked up my favorite Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder in shade 51. It brings such a radiant glow to the face. Bronzers send off such autumnal vibes and in my opinion this one is the best so far. I use MAC 168 to do my cheeks and later take it up my forehead and down my jaw line. This is perhaps my most favorite step and this brush from MAC is meant for it.
I picked up NYX Show Girl eye shadow recently and that’s all I have been using this past week. I love it so much. It is such a beautiful shade of copper and it makes my eyes look so pretty. I use my MAC 217 and swipe the color all over my lid and that’s about as much as I can do with an eye shadow or an eye shadow brush. 😛
I am skipping mascara and eyeliner these days and have been using just a kohl liner for my waterline.
Finally for lips I am going bold and what better bold than red. My sister in law got me MAC Ruby Woo for my birthday (I am sorry I haven’t blogged about it in 4 months) and I have been using it on end ever since. I doubt I am ever taking it off.
