Current Favourite #FOTD

So it's safe to say that over the last few months, maybe a year or so , my make up range has drastically changed (and improved!) and I've spread my wings away from just whatever I could get in Boots and bitten the bullet to spend a bit more money to try some new beauty products. I've spent so long watching YouTube videos and reading blogs to know that the money I'm spending is worth it and I feel that for the first time in a long time, this is the happiest and most confident I've been with my current make up bag..

So this is the look that I've been going with day to day over the last few weeks - sometimes I'll do more an less depending in how long I have before I start work or if I'm going out at night etc but for a standard look, this is how I'm going:

FOUNDATION: Fenty Beauty
CONCEALER: Nars Cream Concealer
CONTOUR: Charlotte Tilbury Instant Face (Bronzer)
BLUSH: No7 Rose Gold Shimmer
HIGHLIGHT: Fenty Beauty / Illamasqua Loose Powder Highlight
BROWS: HD Brow Kit
EYE SHADOWCharlotte Tilbury Instant Face
EYELINER: Primark (can't be all fancy can I now?!)
MASCARA: Maybelline Lash Sensational
LIPS: Nyx Lip Cream in London 



This is me without Fake tan so if I'm tanned, it's obviously lots more bronzer and possibly my Estee Lauder doublewear which is too dark for me naturally. If I'm out at night or for a meal I go for a super dark lip too while the nights are still drawing in early. I am looking forward to Spring through for bright lips and pastel nails.

If you were like the 2-years-ago me and are wanting to experiment and expand your make up range, I'd definitely recommend spending a lot of time online, speaking to the girls in stores such as Boots or House Of Fraser etc and really spend time looking into what you want before spending money. This is the first time in a long time I've felt so confident in myself as a make up artist as well as happy with my current collection. My aim in 2018 is to get back into being an MUA more and to develop my skills as much as I can. I'm even debating doing a few videos for YouTube etc so fingers crossed, watch this space!
