FOTD- The easy face

I've been inspired by Viviannadoesmakeup lately and how minimal her make up is. I'm always amazed how she manages to look incredible with just 5 products! Most recently i loved how she looked here. So i decided to cut my make up down and try to go au natural. For my first attempt this is what i felt comfortable in... 

Now i'm aware this is still quite a few different products but we have to start with baby steps- the next day i even managed to just do concealer and eye make up!! 

(Excuse the scary face- only one that showcased the blush at all etc!) 

All it took was a tad of the Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin enhancer over a few areas of my face, a light dusting of MAC mineralise skin finish natural to set, a dusting of NARS deep throat blush and that was my face done. For concealer i used the Benefit lemon aid on my top eyelid, some Bobbi Brown corrector under the eyes, followed by some Laura Mercier secret concealer on top. For the eyes all i did was a thin line of NYX's super skinny eye marker on the top lashline, some MaxFactor false lasheffect mascara and then a line of Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in perversion on my water line! 

I happily went about my day like this and went for a family dinner without any extra or touch ups! I'm quite proud! We'll see if this continues or is as easy once i'm back at uni!
