This is a simple Face Of The Day look which I've been opting for recently as a more natural look. Here I was off to work (I work evenings at a busy bar) so I wore a bright lip to make it a bit more of a FOTN, but during the day worn with a nude lip or light gloss is good for a light and more natural appearance. (And you can see my ombre in these photo's finally, yay!)

Makeup Steps:

1. I primed using the Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer. I don't really rate this primer to be honest, but I have no money at the moment and it is the only primer I have at the moment so may as well use it rather than spend money on a new one. What primers do you guys use? My foundation is the Rimmel Wake Me Up in 400 Natural Beige, set with Rimmel Stay Matte Press Powder. This is the best mattifying setting powder I have tried so far and swear by it.

2. For my brows I used a cheap kit by Fashionista which I picked up from Superdrug but it is VERY similar to the Benefit Browzings kit. I used this as a base and then defined with Mac Eyebrow Pencil in the shade Spiked. I try to keep the inner corners mostly powder to avoid too much of a scouse brow.

3. For my eyes I primed with Maybelline Dream Mousse Eyecolor in the shade Blissful Beige. This is my favourite clean eye colour to brighten the eye but keep it simple. I then did a simple thin wing eyeliner (I have hooded eyelids so I have to keep it thin) and used the Soap & Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner, although recently I've been swaying away from this as the colour is not as deep as I like it to be and the line is often too thick due to the nib. My mascara as always is the Louise Gray Mascara by Topshop which I swear by for the top lashes and then the L'oreal Telescopic Mascara for my bottom lashes because the brush is much thinner.

4. Finishing touches! My lips are Pretty Amazing by Bare Minerals in shade Pizzaz. I usually stay away from lipglosses and stay with a matte lip but after blotting I really love the texture, colour and shine to this gloss and it stays on for ages. And a few weeny freckles to make the look seem more natural done with a Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown shade 001. 

What do you wear on a daily basis?
