FOTD; Diwali Celebrations



Diwali Celebrations


Another 'What's on my Face' post today,and today is the weekend of Diwali! And I thought I would share with you the look I decided to go with, Diwali was actually on Thursday but the celebrations in my household carry on for the whole weekend! Happy Diwali to anyone who also celebrates! 

Face

L'Oréal True Match Foundation// I have only had this since September and even though that isn't a very long time I have fallen in love with. The formula, texture, coverage and lasting of it is genius and the bonus is that I don't even have to use a primer because my skin prefers it without!

Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer// My skin looks a little more flawless with this foundation so I don't the need for a lot of face concealer, but my under eye circles need a lot of covering up and this does the trick perfectly.

Rimmel Matte Powder// Not too much on this powder apart from the fact that it sets everything in place and doesn't make my face go all shiny and weird. 

MAC Bronzer// A lovely natural glow in the night and in the middle of October is ok right? I love how this shade looks on my skin and gives me this lovely bronze look even though my skin is pretty dark in the winter.

Natural Collection Blush in Rosey Glow// This is a very new addition to my makeup routine, I found this gem when I was tidying up a while back now and every since have not stopped using it! I love how natural it looks and doesn't make me look overly flushed. 

MUA Highlighter// This is the prettiest thing I have ever seen! I use this on my cheeks and my eyes as a highlighter because its just so pretty and beautiful.

Eyes

Diwali Celebrations

Sleek Oh So Special// I really neglect my Sleek palettes and always stick to the UD ones, but in fact the Sleek ones are amazing too and super pigmented! the picture above shows the colours that I used and I believe they are called 'Organza (the second on the top row) and Ribbon (the one next to it)' I mixed them together on my lid to create the colour of my base and then in the crease I used a little bit of 'Celebrate(last one on the top row)' these names are also related to the occasion so I thought that is perfect!

Maybelline Rocket Volume Mascara//  An oldie but a goodie, this mascara made life simple for me because it came off at night which is by bug bear when mascara clings on to your eyelashes. Love the natural look this gives my eyes and its been collecting dust for a long time now, so it was about time I used it again!

Lips

Now I really struggled with the colour of my lips for this look, at first I put Tanya Burr's 'Picnic in the Park' but in the end I went with a red because why not? 

Bourjois Rouge Edition in Hot Pepper// This colour looks so pretty at night and this is the only one from the four I have that I haven't yet used so this was a first time...and I loved the result.


I loved the way my makeup turned out and didn't expect the Sleek palette to be this good and the lips work great with the eyes too! Got another part tonight and very much looking forward to it, Happy Diwali!
