An Autumn FOTD (Face Of The Day)

  Hi Everyone,

Although we seem to be experiencing an Indian Summer in the UK at the moment, it’s officially Autumn. Taking full advantage of the lovely weather, I decided to snap a quick outdoor picture of my makeup on my iPod Touch (the Instagram app is proving highly addictive!) – Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera on hand.

The products I used are as follows:
Revlon Colorstay Foundation (For Normal/Dry Skin) in the shade 110 Ivory, applied with the ELF Studio Line Powder Brush
Revlon PhotoReady Concealer in Light
Topshop Neon Rose Cream Blush
Accessorize Baked Bronzer in California
Benefit High Beam

Urban Decay Primer Potion
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil – Milk
Boots No17 Solo Eye Shadow – Ivory Coast (applied to the lid and blended above the crease)
Shimmery white eyeshadow from the Milani Domino Quad (inner corner of eye)
Rimmel Glam’Eyes Professional Liquid Liner (for my winged cat liner)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil – Bourbon (blended into the lower lash line)
Urban Decay Twice Baked and YDK eyeshadows (Blended over the Bourbon liner on the lower lash line for added dimension and depth)
Boots No7 Extreme Length Mascara – Black
MAC Eyeshadows - Copperplate mixed with a little Brun (to fill in brows, using an angled brush)

Barry M Lip Liner – Red (#3)
MAC Lipstick – Russian Red (Matte)

On a more random note, if anyone is also interested in anything cute and panda shaped, I picked up this adorable makeup bag for just £2.50 from Primark this week:

I also found a photograph of a makeup look I did earlier this year, but never posted. It’s based on My Chemical Romance’s Killjoy looks (Gerard’s specifically, but with a slight change to colour and shape) from the Na Na Na music video. If anyone’s interested I’m thinking about re-doing this look as a Halloween makeup post. It was my first attempt at covering my brows and creating a makeup mask. 

And now everyone is sick of Instagram images, that's it!
