Daisies In My Hair

Well, this was going to be a face of the day to show you my new Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick but... well, to say the least we got a bit carried away and it is what it is. Some pictures of me, a face of the day, and an outfit of the day all rolled into one!

So whats on my face: My Garnier BB cream, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, Natural Collection Blush in Peach Melba, Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde, Vaseline in Rosie Lips, Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 01, and L'oreal Voluminous Mascara. Firstly I'd like to apologise for the fact that most of the products are a little battered... I never realised how scruffy my makeup was looking untill it came to taking the pictures (Ooops!).

I've rediscovered my love for the Garnier BB cream after tking a short holiday from it where I switched between just my Collection Concealer and Rimmel Stay Matte foundation, I wanted to wear something less full on whilst we were away hence only using concealer but that ended badly as I've realised it was breaking me out so in the end I was using more concealer to conceal the yuck that was caused by the concealer... clever. But, now I'm back to the BB cream and loving it! I would seriously recommend the garnier BB cream to anybody who is looking for a lighter base, especially if you have problematic skin as I find it doesn't clog up my pores or cause breakouts, which is just lovely!

Moving on to Blusher and I am currently loving this natural collection blush, its nicely pigmented and I find it really easy to get a flush of colour, nothing to strong and it gives a lovely natural finish. You cant really appreciate the full wonders of this product in the pictures as it was rather sunny and that has bleached me out a little... But take my word for it, they are lovely and for only £1.99 you cant go far wrong! I did also have the highlighter from the sleek contour kit on but for reasons unknown to me I just forgot to photograph it... I love this highlighter it gives a lovely glow to the cheekbones and isn't too strong.

As far as eyes go, I kept it very simple only using mascara and my trusty favourite L'oreal Paris Voluminous, not much to say really except that this is wonderful! Now, I have an apology... My eyebrow pencil... In fact I don't even know if its a pencil... It's a turn-ey thing I bought from a stand in a shopping centre I can tell you its great and in the shade blonde but I can't for the life of me remember which brand its from... And to top things off all of the packaging has rubbed of, so apologies for that!

Now for lips! I freaking love this lipstick! Its the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick and its bloomin' gorgeous, so smooth and lovely to apply not at all drying which is a big thumbs up from me! And to make things even better, it was a bargain! In Boots at the moment they have £1.50 off the Kate Lipsticks meaning that instead of them being £5.50 they're only £3.99! YAY! So, all I can say is Go Go Go!

I thought I'd include the Tony & Guy CASUAL Sea Salt Texturising spray seen as that has been my go to hair product of late. Its Amazing for lazy hair days (everyday.) it doesn't dry your hair which is great but it adds texture and accentuates my kinks curls to make them a little more controlled, and it smells lovely which is always a bonus!

Anyway, enjoy the lovely weather!
