Hey Lovelies, I’m Maxine, a 19 year old Law Student living in Edinburgh.
Soon I was boring my friends to tears with the latest “it” mascara and my obsession for thicker brows, so to save their earholes, I decided to start blogging.
But flu and chest infections reared their ugly head, and made my head rather ugly.
What an Anti-Climax eh?
I wanted my first FOTD to be quite natural, with rosy cheeks and a softly defined light brown smokey eye.I kept the lips matte and in the same pink family as the cheeks.
- Loreal Paris Infallible Foundation Matte Finish in Porcelain
- Benefit High Beam
- MUA Heaven and Earth Palette: Shades 1, 3 and 11
- MUA Mascara Shade 1 Clear (Used as Brow Gel)
As you can see I have used a lot of products, (well I did want to look my best for you), but if you're in a rush you can skip the concealer, and just go for foundation, cream blush, powder, one eyeshadow and mascara.
I'm not loyal to any particular brands, and I'm no make-up snob. The products I used range from £1 (MUA Brow Gel, MUA Eyeshadow, MUA Pressed Powder), to £31 (Ouch, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua).
I honestly don't mind paying for something if I know it's good quality and will be worth it, I've had my Chanel VL for 6 months now, and still have loads left, so far it's only cost me £5 per month, which really isn't bad.
On the other hand, I won't spend money on something purely for the label it holds, I am a huge fan of MUA and the Eyeshadow in Pearl, Shade 12, has to be my favourite eyeshadow ever, its hugely pigmented, and duo chrome, I urge you to buy it, and it's only a pound!
I’ve only recently in the past year started my Beauty addiction, and believe me when I’ve made some mistakes, (When I was 12 I used to think putting pale pink glittery eye shadow all over my face in substitute of bronzer was a good look, eeeek), though hopefully I’ve advanced a little more since then.
