FOTD – First time!

I’ve never really done a Face Of The Day post before, not properly, that is.  Mostly because I don’t normally wear a fully done face.  But a recent party required the full monty, so I thought I’d be brave and share with you.

So here goes:

Bare Escentuals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer

Sisley Sisleya Anti-Ageing Lift Foundation

Cover FX Conceal FX in Deep – my newest discovery, watch out for a blog post on this soon

Bare Minerals in Sangria over the lid
Chantecaille Bourbon Rose Shine Eye Shade used in the crease and used as a faint liner under the eye
Chantecaille Lilac Rose Shine Eye Shade under the browbone as a highlighter
Clinique Brush-On Cream Liner in True Black 02
Hourglass Film Noir Mascara in Black, two coats on upper lashes, one coat on lower

A little Christian brow powder in Brown brushed through very lightly

myface blusher in Night Fever

Chanel Rouge Allure Le Rouge Satinee in Famous 207 – my latest Chanel buy! Love it, such a shame it’s limited edition.

Maybe next time, I’ll be brave enough to film myself putting my face on!

If any of you seasoned bloggers have any tips for me, please do post them below, or email me – all advice much appreciated!

(This was after a week spent in bed with a tummy bug and two days before I was put onto antibiotics, so I know I’m looking a little ropey…. but heh, what else is a blog for if not to show yourself, warts and all!)
