Face of the Day - Russian Red

Hi beauties,

So I'm making the most of this lovely long break from work, and I thought I'd do a quick post on my make up look today! 


Face
Foundation - Rimmel Match Perfection (I love this foundation. For once a shade that 
works for my very pale skin!)
Concealer - Collection 2000
Powder - Rimmel Stay Matte in 001 Transparent

Eyes:
Primer - E.l.f. Eyelid primer in Sheer (I've heard this is a good dupe for Urban Decay primer potion - I couldn't say though as I haven't tried Urban Decay's. I plan on purchasing it soon though, so I'll do a little comparison)
Eye shadow - Naked 2 palette (Verve all over the lid, tease through the crease and a touch of snakebite in the outer corner) 
Mascara - Maybelline's The Falsies. This stuff is amazing!! It gives so much volume and length, I love it!

Cheeks:
Blush - Bourjois no 74 Rose

Lips:
Lipstick - MAC Russian Red Matte

I used to be scared to try bright lip colours, but I've really tried to experiment recently with bright and bold colours and I think a red lip looks so pretty on any skin tone - rock the red lip ladies!

Hope you're all having a lovely day!

    1. Aww, well I'd love to say it's down to exercise, healthy eating and drinking lots of water - but that's not been possible with it being the Christmas holidays :) I've actually got a few yummy skincare products I've been using recently. I'll put up a post hopefully tomorrow!
