Face Of The Day - KMC Beauty


This is a short and sweet post on my 'FOTD', I just loved my make-up so much today I wanted to share it with my small group of followers (and anyone else who might stumble upon my blog)
On one of my rare days off work I enjoy spending a little longer doing my make-up and getting to wear eye-shadow and lipstick, for some people this might be an everyday occurrence but for me on most day's it's a case of slap on the bare minimum and rush out the door.
To start with the face I use a mixture of EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation in the shade F200 with my MAC Pro Longwear foundation in the shade NC15 i'm not quite dark enough for the EX1 and not light enough for the Pro Longwear so mixing the two shades together gives me my perfect shade, I set my foundation with MAC Studio Fix Powder in NC20.
Onto eyebrows and I have been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade for so long now, I love it, gives me a sharp brow and as it is waterproof it doesn't smudge all day which is perfect. The shade I use is 'Dark Brown'.
For the eyes all the shadows I used were from the Lorac Pro Palette 2, as a transition colour I used the shade 'Nectar' which is a matte burnt orange, through the crease and higher up on the lid I used 'Cocoa' which is a very deep brown shimmer shade, on the inner part of my lid I used 'Rosé' and on the outer V I used a tiny bit of 'Black' to add some depth. To finish the eyes I added 'Beige' as a brow bone highlight.
For my eyeliner I added a thin line of the Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Liner and for lashes I also used another Rimmel product, their new 'Wonder'full' Mascara which I am really enjoying.
To add a bronze glow to the face and a subtle contour I used Nars Bronzing Powder in 'Laguna'.
Finally the product that completed the whole look for me and a current favourite of mine at the moment, it's the Nars Audacious Lipstick in the shade 'Anna', I love these lipsticks so much the formula is amazing, super pigmented, long wearing and not drying on the lips. If you want to read an in depth review on the two lipsticks I picked up you can find that post here.

I hope you enjoyed my FOTD post, I would love to do more of these in the future I really enjoy getting glammed up even when i'm not doing anything worth getting glammed up for!
