Face Of The Day | Mauve Pink

So finally managed to make time to get some 'face of the day' pics! I hardly ever get 5 minutes to blog anymore because of Uni and work but I'm so glad I got around to taking some half decent blog photos for once! This is a really basic look I wore for college one day and I really loved the colours so I thought I might as well write about it!

So I'll start with the boring part which is my base makeup. I don't wear liquid foundation anymore because I like my skin to feel like it can breathe, instead I simply use the Collection Cover Up Stick in shade #01 'Light Translucent'. It gives a nice amount of coverage without being too heavy on my skin. After applying that I use my MAC Mineralize SkinFinish Powder in 'Light Plus'. This is fast becoming my new favourite powder foundation despite the price tag.

To give my face a bit more definition I contour slightly with this dirt cheap Body Collection Pressed Powder Bronzer. You might have already seen this product in my latest haul post as I only bought it last week but I already really like it. It's a very subtle bronzer that's easy to build up and blends in well. I've already managed to drop it and crack the lid but despite some slight crumbling the product itself is holding up pretty well. 

To highlight I've been using this MAC Highlighter in shade 'Lightscapade'. I picked it up at the airport a few weeks ago and I've been head over heels for it ever since. I think its quite pricey, coming in at £20 without tax but I've never seen a highlighter with the gorgeous pastel colours that this one has.

On my eyes I'm wearing the shade 'Baby' from the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette which is without a doubt my favourite ever eyeshadow palette. Its another pricey product but one I'm so glad I forked out for! The mascara I'm wearing is another favourite, the Benefit Roller Lash. I've been using it for around a year now and its the best mascara I've ever tried, however I am tempted to test out They're Real Mascara when I finish this.

To top my eyes off I've used the Cat Von D Tattoo Liner that I picked up from Barcelona. I'd heard nothing but good things about it online and it really does live up to the hype. I've only really used budget eyeliner pens up until now but I wouldn't hesitate to pick this one up again!

To complete the look I'm wearing another brand new purchase, the KIKO Smart Lipstick in shade #917 'Mauve Pink'. This is the first thing I've ever bought from KIKO and I'm honestly really impressed. Its a pretty glittery pink colour thats a bit different to my usual matte nudes and I'm so glad I decided to try something new. Although it doesn't having the staying power of my usual MAC lippies, it does feel incredible on my lips and the colour is super vivid considering its a cheaper product!

Have you tried any of these products? Tell me what you thought!

Thanks for reading!
