Face Of The Day (Debs Make-up)

Remember me? 

Major apologies for my lack of posts but the last week has been a total blur with the Leaving Cert results and the CAO offers. You can imagine how fun my week has been...

Anyways, I have another slightly boring FOTD post. 

As well as that, it was my debs yesterday and I decided to try do my own make up this year. It's a fairly dramatic look I suppose. Not many people would suggest playing up both the eyes and the lips but I thought, FECK IT and just went for it. 

Trial run of the make up.

I understand if it looks like shite.  

But to those that actually like it, I can of course post a quick tutorial. However, it is so easy it only takes about 5 minutes. Again, it's a smokey gold, bronzed eye (told you it was my "go-to"...) with a hell of a lot of contouring, so I might look like I have dirt smeared across my face... 

Ailbhe and I.

Also this week I was lucky enough to pick up the Customisable Starter Kit by bareMinerals. This foundation has been on my wishlist since the beautiful Laura Doyle ( recommended I try it out as she knew Estee Lauder was wrecking my head and my skin. Laura, I love you. I also love bareMinerals. Honest to God, I was amazed at this stuff and I will have a blog post reviewing the product as soon as I learn how to apply it perfectly. Also, shoutout to Alison in BT2 Blanchardstown for being extremely helpful and kind.

Annoyingly, I forgot to take a close up picture of my make-up on the day. However, the picture above of the trial run for my make-up is pretty much exactly the same except its without the eyelashes and the tan.
