FOTD–Red Lips




I feel like I haven’t posted a FOTD for ages! I wore this make-up on Sunday to go and do the food shopping, bit over the top but never mind. I also thought I’d show you the look with my other glasses, these are my black pair (obvs.) and they’re by Gok Wan at Specsavers. They’re normally my ‘hair-up’ glasses as they have pretty detailing on the sides but I thought the black frames looked better than my brown ones with this look.



Nearly all of the products used were new or nearly new, I got this No 7 foundation fairly recently when I tried out the foundation matching service, I’m the shade Calico if anyone’s interested and it really does match my skin well at the moment, it might be a little dark when I get really super pale though. I mixed it in with a bit of the Soap & Glory Hocus Focus liquid highlighter to give my skin a bit of a sheen – I’ve been doing this with all of my foundations lately, love a bit of healthy glow.


I was sent the Hi Brow Brow Palette to review months ago and I’ve been using it pretty regularly since receiving it, I like the stencils that come with it as they help me to get a good shape when filling my brows in. The powder is really long-lasting too, and it’s not overly red-toned either (always a bonus!). I also used the little highlighter to emphasise my brow bone and inner corner of the eye.




My blush was MAC Blushbaby (as usual) and my highlighter was one of the FashionistA eye shadows in Bella, such a pretty shade. I used MAC Painterly all over my eyelid with some of the 17 Perk & Paint eye brightener on my waterline – such a great product! I used a Revlon Colorstay liquid liner on my top lashline for the flick but forgot to include it in the pictures!I then whacked a couple of coats of the NATorigin mascara on and we were good to go.



On my lips I used the Burt’s Bees lip balm in Pomegranate and then used the Ellis Faas Creamy Lips 101 lip colour, I’d forgotten how much I love this lipstick.

What do you think?

Do you like my glasses?
