I thought id do a post on the look I've being doing most days which is natural, fresh and super easy. It was only meant to be small but i seemed to have got carried away, hope its not too boring, enjoy!

For the base I've been using Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Foundation (100 Ivory) which i have mixed opinions on, sometimes loving it and sometimes feeling its not doing that much, i really can't put my finger on it. But, for everyday and the price of it (£6.99) you really cant go that wrong. To apply it i use the obligatory Real Techniques Buffing Brush which i adore and cannot apply foundation in any other way now other than this!

The concealer I've been using is Benefit Erase Paste (No.1 fair) which is pricey, normally retailing for £19.50 however i picked it up at a little less shocking £14.50 from Buya Powa- my saviour! If you don't know what Buya Powa is, here's my short blogpost about it http://cat1831.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/buyapowa.html. Although it seems tiny for such an expensive product it has lasted me ages however i am unsure whether i will be repurchasing when it finally does run out. I massage the concealer in with a mix of my ring finger or the Real Techniques Pointed Foundation Brush which comes in the core collection along with the buffing brush for £21.99. 

Next is eyebrows and for this I've been using the Avon Glimmerstick Brow Definer (blonde) which is almost gone! I move back on to the skin and use the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Creme Bronzer in Riveria to bronze/contour with the contour brush from the real techniques collection. Its then time for blusher and for this I've been loving Mac Powder Blush in Well Dressed, a really pretty light pink with light shimmer in it and I've been applying it with the Avon Angled Contouring brush. I then have been applying the Avon Illuminating Face Pearls as a highlight and an all over light glow, once again with the Real Techniques Contour brush

Its then back on to they eyes and I've been loving doing nothing but mascara for a fresh faced look and so first thing is to curl my lashes with the Shu Umera Eyelash Curlers which is now a must-do thing for me. In my previous blog post i wrote about trying new mascaras and I've been really enjoying the one featured there: Maybelline Great Lash Blackest Black Mascara. 

Now on to lips and recently I've been loving Avon Lipstick- Carnation which adds a pop of colour and is great for everyday when you want something reasonably bright but not too bright like a red or coral! And finally, i like to powder and for this i use the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and as my skin has been really dry i like to only apply it to anywhere that it is really needed such as under the eyes, around the nose and on the chin.
