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.
Lancome L’Extreme – of COURSE.
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?
