FODT: Movie Edition

So recently (by this I mean a few weeks ago...) I went off to the movies with some friends. I
decided to pop on a simple and fresh makeup look, and show you the products I used.

To begin with I gave my face some much needed moisture with the Chantecaille (pronounced 'shan-ta-ky') Magnolia, Jasmin and Lily Healing Emulsion, which is so unbelievably soothing on the skin.

Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Primer helps my face stay on just that little bit longer, which gives me the luxury of not having to touch up my makeup throughout the day. It's also quite hydrating, and soaks into my skin immediately.

For my foundation, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua is the perfect 'natural' coverage. It's heavy enough to even out my skin tone, but at the same time light enough to feel weightless and allows you to actually see some skin. I used my all time favourite concealer to hide some clearly apparent dark circles and redness, which is the Ellis Faas Concealer in S202.

For a nice fresh and rosy cheek look I put on some Gorgeous Cosmetics Cheek Cream in 'Strawberries & Cream' and used MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in 'Soft and Gentle' for some added radiance.

As I am generally super pasty, I used NARS 'Laguna' Bronzer to give me a natural looking bronzed glow (oh how I love makeup!).

As for my eyes, a simple matte brown shadow in the crease using Gorgeous Cosmetics True Taupe and some mascara to define my eyes (Benefit They're Real') was as far as I could be bothered to go that night, but effective none the less.

To add a pop of colour to my lips I used the Stila Peppermint Balm Lipstick in 'Isabelle'. This stuff is so soothing and tasty, it can be a challenge not to eat it off your lips sometimes. 

To set my makeup I used the MAC Fix + which is very refreshing and sets the makeup so that it holds throughout the night (great for nights on the town). 

As a final touch I spritzed on my go-to perfume at the moment, Serge Lutens 'Un bois vanille'. It's brinking sickly sweet, but after it fades it is utterly delicious. Perfect for the colder months. 

As for my nails, a quick coat of MECCA 'Volumina' gave me that added bit of bling to my outfit.

Sorry about the lack of a finished face shot, I forgot to take one before I left...my bad. But I will remember to do one next time I promise!

Apologies for the lack of posts lately too, I'll be back in the swing of things soon enough.
