Face Of The Day: Autumn Glow

Hey dolls, I thought I’d write a quick post on the products I used to create my natural autumn glow look. I don’t like looking like I’m wearing make up so I tend to wear light to medium coverage foundation. At the moment I’ve been using a lot of Boots No7 products and I love them! They’re hypo-allergenic which is perfect as my skin is on the sensitive side. Pretty much all the products ‘drugstore’ products so if you’re on a budget

After my usual morning routine I spritz my Lush Tea Tree Water on a cotton pad and applied to my face ensuring any residue is removed from my face. Then I used Grease Lightening spot treatment on any blemishes I had. Next I applied my No7 Youthful facial oil (I don’t use a moisturiser as I find them too heavy and kind of greasy).

For the base I applied the No7 Beautifully Matte primer (I’m loving this at the moment by the way). Next I apply m No7 Essentially Natural foundation with my Real Techniques stippling brush as it gives a dewy finish which I’ve found hard to achieve as I have quite oily skin without it making my skin look extremely oily. Once I’d finished my foundation I used Maybelline’s Anti-Age Eraser Eye concealer under my eyes before using Collection’s Lasting Perfection concealer over any blemishes.

After applying my base & concealer I used the No7 Skin Illuminator over my cheek bones and under my eyes to highlight then I used Tanya Burr’s Peachy Glow cheek palette, I used the bronzer to contour, the blush on the apples of my cheeks and then I set the skin illuminator with the powder highlighter.

For my eyes I used  No7’s Stay Perfect eyeshadows in truffle and beach shine, then I lined my eyes with the Maybelline master precise liquid liner which I think is great for a winged eye look. Then I use Benefit’s They’re Real mascara and finally filling in my brows with Soap & Glory’s Archery pencil.

The first thing I do after applying my facial oil is apply my lip butter so it has time to sink in before applying my lipstick at the end. Through the day if my face gets a little shiny I’ll use a little powder or blotting paper.

Much Love,
