Face Of The Day #4 - The Sister Edition

Ok, I admit it. These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago. But I had planned to write up this post for ages. This aside, the post is a little different from my usual 'Face of the Day' posts as it includes one of my sisters! I had hoped it would include both of my sisters, but the other one wasn't at all interested in having her photo taken - haha!

To start it off, I'm wearing the Benefit Porefessional primer. I have really started to love using this and it may or may not be featuring in my next favourites post! I like the fact that it's slightly tinted (rather than white or clear) so it offers a little bit of coverage to help hide those dreaded acne scars. My foundation is the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation in Ivory - a full coverage foundation with a satin like finish that really does help cover up everything whilst not managing to look cakey. Alongside this I used the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory (ok, we have established I'm pale) just to add a little extra coverage where needed. To set all this in place, I used the Maybelline Matte Maker powder in Classic Ivory (I think? - Left behind at uni, not sure on the shade exactly). To add a little colour and definition to my cheeks, I used the NARS Blush in Sin and the Charlotte Tilbury Film Star Bronze and Glow. I decided to keep my look simple and skipped eyeshadow and eyeliner, but I am wearing the Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara (my new fave!) on my lashes. As we were going out, I decided to wear the new Burberry Kisses Lipstick* in Sepia. It is such a gorgeous shade and I will definitely be buying it myself once my sample runs out!

As for my sister, she has recently discovered primers. Probably after raiding my makeup collection whilst I'm away at uni. She is wearing the Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer which she thinks is absolutely amazing. Although she had absolutely no idea how to use it or what it was for until I told her. On top of that she is wearing the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in Ivory (she is just as pale as me haha!). She is only 13 and does't really need to wear foundation as her skin is pretty much flawless, but she says it makes it feel more confident so who am I to tell her otherwise. She is also wearing the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory as she complains about having bad under eye circles. She was actually the one who got me hooked on it as I had dismissed it thinking a shimmery concealer would just highlight your blemishes rather than hide them. She then used the Rimmel Stay Perfect Powder in Peach Glow *cough* stolen from me *cough*. She has been loving using the Rimmel Scandaleyes XX-treme mascara and I must say her lashes looked gorgeous! The photo does them no justice whatsoever! To finish off her look she borrowed my Revlon Colour Stay Lip Butter in Candy Apple as she wanted to wear a red lip, so I suggested this one considering her age!

I hoped you enjoyed this post as it was slightly different from usual!
Thanks for reading!

  2. A very natural, fresh look! Lovely photos of you both :)
