Face Of The Day #4

Y'all know how much I love the brand, Beegood and this month I have been loving their Honey & Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser (*). In conjunction with the pure muslin cloth, it leaves my skin clean, soft and beautifully prepped for the day. I am still using my Melvita Damask Rose Floral Water (*) as a toner, it is literally one of the best I've tried and then applied the Botanics Radiant Youth Super Serum (*) which helps to boost luminosity. Lastly, I finished off with a layer of Liz Earle's Superskin Moisturiser with Neroli (*).
On to make up, I primed my face with the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (*), then applied a thin layer of the new Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide in Maple (*) from the same brand and available at Urban Retreat. This foundation is super lightweight yet gives great coverage, it really feels like there is nothing on my skin. To bronze, I applied a dusting of the Bourjois Gold Bronzing Powder (*), thanks to it's subtle iridescent formula, it gives my skin a lovely radiant glow. On to the eyes, I applied the The Body Shop Instablur Eye (*) and then kept the shadow quite neutral with the first two shades of No7's Stay Perfect Eyeshadow in In The Navy (*). To create my usual cat eye flick, I used the Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner, the formula is gel-like and gives a matte finish which I love. I decided to go mascara free for this look and on my brows I used the Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint and Pencil. I then gave my cheeks a slight flush with NARS Blush in Deep Throat and highlighted my cheek bones with No7's Instant Radiance Highlighter (*). Finishing off with a nice slick Bourjois's Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick in Grand Cru (*) and my look is complete. What do you think of today's face?

NARS Audacious Lipstick - Michiyo

In celebration of the brand's 20th Anniversary, NARS pays tribute to it's success by launching the new Audacious Lipstick collection which is available in a whopping forty shades. The pigment-rich formula delivers intense colour with full coverage in just one stroke which I witnessed with my own eyes at the Selfridges launch last week. The forty-shade collection consists of a full range of soft nudes, bright pinks and striking reds, all housed in a matte black case with a magnetic closure. 

My favourite is a bright, medium pink colour named Michiyo. Described as a 'shocking pink', this shade has a cool undertone and a semi-matte finish. It wore extremely well, five hours in and the colour was still super intense with no signs of fading. 

I can see these being 'the' lipstick on everyone's Christmas lists this year, will you be picking any up?

OUTFIT - Khaki Is The One

Jumper - H&M
Scarf - Primark
Boots (*) - Clarks

For me, khaki or military green (if you want to call it that) is the colour of the season. I am constantly drawn to everything I see in any shop or online in that shade and it is fast taking over my autumn/winter wardrobe. Oversized knits are my current obsession and this one from H&M is the perfect fit. Super comfortable with great length, not forgetting the colour is just spot on. And then you have tartan, which is something I don't even have to say much about, as soon as the colder season hits, you'll see the tartan scarf everywhere. Lastly, my boots are from Clarks and they're actually the first pair I own from the brand. I can definitely see myself picking up a few more pairs because they're just so comfortable and come in lots of trendy styles for women and choices of fit.
