Look at my face aka FOTD

So here goes my first attempt at FOTD (face of the day) post.

As I tend to stay comfortably in my daily make up rut I'm not sure I can make too many of these posts. Ok so I might swap one neutral brown eyeshadow to another and maybe use a different blush.. but generally its the same. The only thing that really changes is lipstick.

Lets begin shall we.
Face: Clarins Extra-Comfort foundation (108 sand)
So I know I should have written a proper review about this a long time ago. Cause its only like my most favorite foundation EVER! Not sure how familiar you are with the show Friends but there is a quote to describe my feelings for this foundation:

Monica: Mmm, this cake is amazing.
Rachel: My God, get a room.
Monica: I would get a room with this cake. I think I could show this cake a good time!

Just swap cake for Clarins foundation and you see what I mean..
Continuing with face/base products:
          Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer
          YSL Touche Eclat
          NARS Orgasm blush
          Smashbox Bronze Lights bronzer in Suntan Matte.

Eyes: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (the new BFF)
          Bourjois Ombre a Paupieres eyeshadow in Beige Rose
          Naked 3 palette- shades Liar, Factory and Darkside
          Loreal Super Liner Black Lacquer
          Maybelline Falsies Volum Express Waterproof mascara

Lips: Revlon ColorStay Ultimat Suede in Front Row

I always keep the foundation and concealer on my nose as light as possible because I love my freckles. When I was little every summer my grandma used to tell me "The more freckles you have the more the sun loves you!" and I loved the idea of sun loving me. Now living in infinite summer that is Dubai I always have a freckly nose.

If you have questions about any of the products do let me know. Otherwise tell me what are your eyeshadow favorites for day to day use? I would love to add a few to my stash..

    1. Ohhh..just googled it and Earth Reflection is just the prettiest ever! Definitely going high in my want list! thank you so much!

  3. This is the Naked 1 or Naked 2 palette right?

    1. Hey! This one is the latest, the Naked 3 actually. There is a few great shades in it but its not my favorite palette ever..
