A Quick FOTD...

Well it's almost the end of the week...and for my readers living in the UAE, it is the end of the week you lucky things you! 

I was particularly chuffed with how my make up turned out this morning (it doesn't happen a lot so when it does I like to cherish the moment! ha!) so I thought I'd post a little FOTD as it includes some products I'm really enjoying at the moment and I wanted to share with you.  Be prepared for a long list, I'm using a lot of products at present! 

BASE - By Terry Terrybly Densiliss in Shade 7 (Golden Beige) Buy Here (applied using Sigma F80) side note - I am LOVING LOVING LOVING this foundation at the moment, that and the Charlotte Tilbury one are my holy grail foundations currently! 

UNDER EYE - Nars Creamy Concealer in Vanilla Buy Here (applied using Real Techniques Setting Brush)

BLEMISHES - Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC-3 Buy Here applied with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Brush (LM brushes are amazing by the way!) 

SETTING POWDER - Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light (nothing to rave about here - it's a so so product in my opinion!) Buy Here applied with Louise Young Fan Brush

BRONZER - Nars Laguna applied with Real Techniques Powder Blush Buy Here

CONTOUR - Kevyn AuCoin Sculpting Powder in Medium applied with Charlotte Tilbury Sculpt Brush Buy Here 

HIGHLIGHT - Christian Dior Amber Diamonds applied with Charlotte Tilbury Sculpt Brush - discontinued sadly :(

BLUSH - Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush - I love this stuff!! applied with Real Techniques Duo Fiber brush Buy Here

EYES - Nars Eye Primer Buy Here, followed by shadows from the MAC RiRi Loves MAC Eye Palette in Cocoa.  I used the lightest shade all over the eyelid, with a teeny tiny bit of the gold in the inner corner, then swept the shade that is very similar to MAC woodwinked over the lid, into the crease slightly and under the lower lashes, then the darkest brown to define the crease.  I used NARS Mekong Buy Here on the lash line to thicken the lashes up.  The RiRi palette is not available anymore however MAC do similar eyeshadows in their regular line.  I used 3 MAC 217's t apply. 

LASHES & LINER -  Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara in Black Buy Here and MAC Teddy Liner in the water line Buy Here

EYEBROWS - MAC Brun applied with a MAC angled brush and set with Maybelline Clear Mascara

LIPS - MAC Shy Girl Buy Here followed by a cheapy M&S Tiny Lipgloss 

I did warn you there were a lot of products!! Thanks if you made it this far!!! 

Lastly, I had a little delivery yesterday which I'll share with you over the next few days, the box actually makes it looks a lot bigger than it is though, it's only a little purchase and it's make up (surprise surprise!)

That's all for now, catch up with you soon for some weekend blogging! I'm hoping to do a few OOTD's for you! 

Much love!

    1. Thanks Almu :) It's a look I think would really suit you too!

      Ha! All will be revealed soon! to be honest I've probably bigged it up to be more than it is, however I was still very excited by the packaging - I only ever buy from Net-a-Porter when it's free delivery! :)
