I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve done a face of the day; even longer when I think of using my Naked palette from Urban Decay. I have to be honest and say I like it, its good quality, lasts well and the shadows are really pigmented and gorgeous…. But I use other things above it. Strange I know, I guess its just not a favourite for me. This post also gives me another chance to show off the gorgeous Smashbox Lipstain in Sangria I bought recently and showed you all on my shopping haul. I have to say I love the lipstain, it lasts really well and is super vibrant! Its one of those lipstains I get many compliments on when out and about.

So here is my FOTD, just a nice neutral understated eye with a heavy lip. I don’t think it’s too much and really love the look as its so simple and only takes about 5 minutes to do (I can honestly say I think I spend longer doing my base!).

Here’s a list of products used;

Base – Chanel Vitalumiere Foundation in Beige (Shade 40), Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Light (Shade 02), E.L.F High Definition Powder.

Cheeks – Smooch Cosmetics Blush in Peachy, Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder.

Eyes and Brows – Urban Decay Naked Palette Buck, Darkhorse and Creep, MAC Teddy Liner, L’Oreal Lash Architect 4D, Clinique Superfine Liner for Brows in Blonde.

Lips – Smashbox Limitless Lip Stain and Color Seal Balm in Sangria.


I always think ‘red’ is a lippy you can wear anytime, it doesn’t have to be for nights or when you are feeling a bit vampish! I’ve gotten more brave now with my lips and wear red over most other colours. I think it’s the impending cold weather.

Lots of Love,

Mel xxxx
