FOTD: Switching it up

I wanted to get rid of the bitter after taste that's been nagging me ever since I posted my last FOTD, with which I wasn't exactly pleased. And since these FOTD posts are far from a regular thing on this blog, I want to publish something different every time (there's nothing worse than those bloggers that post 5 FOTDs a week and they're basically all the same, only different shades of eyeshadow and lipstick) and by that also force myself to use all of my makeup, not just those couple of products that I'm used to.





If I ignore the awkward facial expressions, I'm actually quite pleased with the pictures this time (What?! Could it be?!). Now let's see which products contributed to this outcome - if you'd like to see a separate review on any of the products used (MUA eyeshadow palette perhaps?), do let me know in the comment section below.



My skin is looking a bit better lately and I although I love my dear Revlon Colorstay, I just couldn't wait to switch to something lighter, dewy-er and easier to remove. I remembered how well I got along with Bourjois Healthy Mix (#52 Vanilla) a few years ago so I brought it back to my eventful life; the shade is a tad bit dark for me right now but I think I can still pull it off when it's properly blended (on this occasion I used the Real Techniques Expert Face brush, but I actually prefer to use the RT makeup sponge with this formula) into my hairline and down the neck (plus, it's only a matter of time till I get a teensy bit tanner). I primed my eyelids with the Urban Decay Primer Potion (the original one, I plan on doing a review on all four of them, but I still need to properly test them) and continued with the MUA Glamour Nights palette (a champagne shade and a brownish one on the lid and a forest green on my lower lash line). If was quite hot that day so I opted for a budge-proof mascara, my beloved Maybelline The Rocket (waterproof). I did my eyebrows with an essence angled brush and the Oriflame Brow set, which contains two amazing powder shades and a wax, which I never use. I start off with the darker shade and do the outer parts of my eyebrows and then use the lighter shade to define the inner parts, carefully blending it all together and then brushing it all through with my EcoTools brow tool. I used the bigger EcoTools eyeshadow brush with the Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer to clean up around my brows, my under-eye area and my mouth. I set it all together with the CadeaVera powder (applied with the Alverde kabuki brush) which actually performs really nicely considering the price - if gives a really soft finish while also providing a bit more coverage. I contoured a bit using the CATRICE bronzer and blush duo (only using the bronzer; I believe this was a part of the L'Afrique C'est Chic limited edition) and Sigma F40. Finally, I used the Alverde lipliner #Soft Red and essence lipstick #on the catwalk on my lips and sprayed my entire face with the Soraya toner (review) to get rid of any excess powder. 

That was a long one, but I do hope you enjoyed it nevertheless. If not, better luck next time!

    1. Sem vesela, da sem "odkrila" to šminko v moji zbirki, ja. :D Koža sicer ni ravno lepa, ampak je vsekakor boljša, kot je bila, pa tu sem se lepo potrudila s pudrom, korektorjem, itd. :P
