FOTD ~ Autumn Edition

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.

What makeup products are you using this season? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂

PS – Please don’t feel shy in commenting and talking. I love to read what you guys are up to too. 🙂

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks by Kate Moss~

It is common knowledge in this part of the internet that I don’t have much experience with makeup but I like to spend fortunes on it. Though there is just one product I like to be careful about before picking – Lipsticks. Ever since buying Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Lady Red, which was the darkest red ever, as my first proper lip color and practically never wearing it I decided to experiment with colors a little before investing in my first ever MAC Lipstick (and the haul that will follow).

I went over to Rimmel Counter a couple of days back and after swatching (it’s not a word I know but please just go with the flow with this one) almost every lipstick in the stand, I came out with two.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate 05 is a pretty pink that is very similar to my natural lip color. This lipstick brings out my lips fuller and I can go with the statement – My lips but better, ha. This is an everyday color.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate 12 is a bright Orange/Tangerine color that I bought just because MAC So Chaude didn’t suit me and I was very upset about it. I love 12 and sport it more than 05 as I am still getting the hang of wearing Pink. Not A very girly girl. This is a great shade for autumn/winter.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks are glossy and glide on well. I usually apply a lip balm, Maybelline Baby Lips in Quenched if I am in a rush or The Body Shop Cocoa Lip Butter if I have some time in my hand before applying lipstick. If your balm hasn’t sunk in and you apply these lipsticks, they are never staying on, so be careful about that.

These Lipsticks are not very long lasting especially if you’re going to be eating or drinking but if you don’t mind checking your makeup every now and then, this will do just fine with you. The best thing is their price tag, so very reasonable at just R.O. 2.900.

Overall I am happy with the purchase (but my mind won’t stop screaming MAC & Bobbib Brown NEXT!!!!!)

Love,

FOTD with New Drugstore Purchases

I thought to do a Face of The Day with some products I recently bought. I haven’t done any FOTD posts before so if you like it, do let me know and I might post some more. 🙂

This is an everyday kind of a look for me these days. Starting from primer, I don’t own one and rely on my The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream. My skin has been acting up recently and I have got dry patches on my cheeks. I prep my skin by apply the Moisture Cream as it hydrates those dry patches instantly and gives me an even canvas to apply my foundation on. I take my newly purchased Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation in shade 115 Ivory. This is such an incredible foundation. I had been eyeing it since forever and I finally get the chance to experiment with it. I use about one and a half or two pumps. It is liquid so it gives you about two to three minutes to set it before it settles. I don’t use a foundation brush yet and apply it with my fingers in a stippling motion. Maybelline Fit Me gives a smooth finish and feels weightless on the skin – definitely my kind of foundation. I will do a detailed review on it soon. For blusher I went for a light pink tone without any contouring this time.

Once done with the face I go for the eyes. I keep it quite basic. I use Maybelline The Colossal Kajal in Black/Noir on my water line. If I don’t use any kajal/kohl my eyes look quite dead/sad. For eyeshadow I went for an orange color with copper/rust touch. For eyeliner I use Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen in shade 01 Blackest Black Noir Intense. An easy to use liquid pen eyeliner that stays on for half a day at least. Its my most favorite and recommended eyeliner. For Lashes I use Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara. This is an amazing Mascara as it gives such a great volume to your lashes without clumps. Love this product. Detailed review for this one will be up soon too.

For lips I use Maybelline Baby Lips in 05 Quenched to prep them as it sinks in real quick and doesn’t leave much of a residue. I apply my lipstick on top of it. Here I used Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in number 12. It is a bright orange that I bought as compensation to MAC So Chaude. I tried So Chaude and I don’t think I can rock that color (This doesn’t guarantee I won’t buy it). Rimmel Kate Moss in number 12 looks much better on me. If you dap your lips on a tissue paper after applying this lipstick, it gives a salmon color which looks quite good too.

I hope you guys liked this post! If you did do leave a comment below!

Thank you for reading 🙂
