Face of the Day #12

12 May 2014

A couple of weekends ago, I was invited to my good friend Samantha's wedding reception. I haven't done a Face of the Day post in a while, so I decided to take a few quick pictures of the make up I chose for the evening!

I started by applying Rimmels matte BB cream. I find that this provides a great light coverage that still allows my freckles to be visible, but covers my blemishes. I usually apply this with a brush, as I find it easier to blend than with my fingers. It doesn't have a very creamy texture, it really is like a light foundation.

Over this I added one of my favourite blushes, Bourjois Rose de Jaspe. This is a lovely peachy pink which I find really brings out my blue eyes!  

On my eyes, I used the Iconic 3 palette from Makeup Revolution. At the moment this is my go-to palette. I love the range of shades, and how pigmented they are. It's great fun to use! I finished off my eyes with my favourite mascara, Lancome's Hypnose Drama. I find the wand of this mascara really easy to use, and it definitely gives me dramatic lashes!

Here's the finished look! What do you think? Do you have a go-to evening look?
