Hello, today I decided to do a "face of the day" post with the make-up I've been reaching for in the past couple of weeks. p.s I did try really hard (sort off ) to take a selfie so you could see how my face looked with the make-up on, but in every photo I felt I looked like a fool/idiot. I'm really not a selfie kind of girl. I hope you can forgive me and just enjoy the photo's of the products/blog post.

For my base I've been using Benefit's You Rebel.  I've owned it for a good month now but I still can''t decided whether I like it or not.  It has a very funny texture and you have to work really hard to blend it.  If not it can look a bit like false tan where it's stated to strike.  Once blended in, it leaves a lovely light finish to the skin.  When applying I either us a brush or my hands but today I decided to us the expert face brush by Real Techniques. 

For the cheeks I've been loving No7's blush in Coral Flush,which is a deep coral with the tiniest amount of shimmer to it, but I've been adding to that shimmer by using Soap and Glory's glow all out luminizing face powder on the top's of my cheekbones and under my eyes. On my lips I've got on Revlon's Lip Butter in pink truffle, I find this shade to not be too dissimilar to my natural lip colour.

Now for the eyes. This is where things have had a little change recently it's nothing big just gone from using black mascara and eye-liner to using brown. This happened when I accidently bought brown mascara instead of black. I was really annoyed when I realised what I'd done.  You just automatically assume all mascara's are black, but now I absolutely love using brown mascara it gives a more natural look, so recently I wanted to try a brown eye-liner. I could only really find pencil's in brown and I don't ever use pencil eye-liner and only the high ended brands seem to do brown gel liners and I wasn't going to waste my money on something I wasn't too sure about. I then stumbled across Collection's brown liquid liner. I did't use the brush it came with, I've been dipping my Bare Minerals eye-liner brush into the bottle as it just about fits. I forgot how much I really like this eye-liner. I used to use it in black for years before I discovered gel.

I love the look this make-up gives for an everyday look, I'd love to know what some of your everyday products are.
