Friday FOTD

Hola!

Ahh Friday, how I love the blissfulness that accompanies this particular day of the week. I bought a bunch of new makeup while I was away and i've been itching to try it out, so I did! I just want to say before I get right into it that if you want to get your eyeliner like I did (thickish with a wing) watch THIS tutorial. The girl who does the tutorial, Maddie, is amazing at makeup and so gorgeous. I often look to her for inspiration and tips. Ok, so here's my face.

you have no idea how long it took me to take a semi decent picture, jesus christ.

What I Used:
On My Face
  • Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in 303 True Nude
  • Garnier Roll-On Anti Dark Circles Concealer
  • Topshop Cream Blush in Morning Dew
  • Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 005 Silky Beige
On My Eyes
  • Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Liner in 001 100% Black 
  • Naked2 Palette: Bootycall (lid) & Snakebite (crease)
  • Benefit They're Real! Mascara
  • Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
On My Lips
  • Rosebud Perfume Co. Strawberry Lip Balm (right at the beginning)
  •  MAC lipstick in Chatterbox
  • Sephora Collection Lipgloss in 001 Transparent
Yay for new makeup! If you want me to do a review on anything I just mentioned or need to ask me a question just pop it in the comments and i'll definitely get back to you.

Pip pip!
