It’s been a while since I last did a Friday Face post, and technically I’m not doing one now either, because this is actually my Thursday Face. Whoops. I’m not going to have time to post on Friday, though, so this one is actually a blast from the past, so to speak. Anyway, I’m wearing:

Philosophy ‘The Present’ Clear Makeup Primer
I hardly ever use this, but every now and then I’ll get it out and give it a whirl. Today I left plenty of time for it to soak in, which is the key to using this product, and I was pretty happy with it. Still not a patch on Smashbox, though.

Maybelline Pure Makeup Foundation in Porcelain Light
Definitely my favourite foundation of the moment, which means they’ll probably have discontinued it by the next time I’m in the States and able to re-stock.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit and Under Eye Corrector PLUS a touch of Urban Decay’s 24/7 concealer, which is totally not designed for the under-eye area, but which is really thick and really pale, and, combined with the Bobbi Brown products, just about hides the shadows. (Although, that said, I’ve managed to get a little more sleep over the past couple of days, and have made an effort to drink loads of water, and they’re definitely looking better than they were at the start of the week.)

Jelly Pong Pong Nude & Improved Eye Shadow Base – I have this in ‘Au Naturel’, which is definitely not “nude” on my skin, but it is a pretty good base – my eyeshadow hasn’t budged all day.

MyFace Cosmetics Band of Gold Eyeshadow Trio and Blusher in Paradise Pink.

Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Pencil in Bourbon

Lancome L’Extreme  – of COURSE.

Benefit Brow Zings

Urban Decay Lipstick in Buzzkill and Lip Pencil in Wicked.

Oh, and please excuse the hair – it’s overdue a trim and is going through one of those “impossible to deal with” stages.

What makeup are you wearing today?

  1. Urban Decay face primer – new, and I LOVE IT SO MUCH – and eye primer.
    Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation in 01 – v sheer, but hangs around nicely.
    Benefit Erase Paste concealer in 01
    Maybelline Dream Mousse blusher in Dolly Pink
    Body Shop blonde eyebrow pencil. Not ideal colour for me – seems to tend towards slightly ginger – but eyebrow pencils are one of those things I hate to replace without using up. Fortunately I’m going through it really quickly.
    Body Shop eyeshadow palette no. 2 (the seasonal edition from October or so) – pink/brown shimmery colours
    Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Corrupt (brown/gold shimmer), from the Super Stash – another I LOVE IT for Urban Decay
    Diorshow mascara in brown (FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS etc etc)
    Benefit Get Even powder

  2. Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion
    Tarte Flower Child eyeshadow – not sure of the names of the actual colors
    Benefit Eye Bright
    Too Faced Lava Gloss eyeliner in black
    Diorshow Iconic mascara in black
    Nars Orgasm blush
    The Balm MaryLou Manizer
    Chap Stick

  3. Well I haven’t actually put my face on yet, bit of a late start, but when I do:

    Face- Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse in… uh, the second lightest one. Ivory Beige? I don’t have primer, I just use my cheap moisturizer first and that works okay. Clinique blush in Precious Posy

    Eyes- Clinique High Impact Mascara (talk about your holy grail products, love it so much), a really cheap eyeliner pencil which I think was Designer Brands, it was like $4AUS

    Lips- Revlon red liner and Face Of Australia sparkly red lip gloss.
