Face of the Day with Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar

Ahh Saturdays, sweet relief from the mundane 9-5! I'm sitting here in my PJ's, listening to Pearl Jam Unplugged on YouTube and hoping that Monday never comes!

I have a new Face of the Day post for y'all today, nothing groundbreaking here just a neutral everyday look. 


NARS Sheer Glow in Fiji
I thought I would switch things up and use Sheer Glow, instead of MAC's Face & Body, which I have been loving lately. Sheer Glow is a medium coverage foundation with a satin finish. This really does leave your skin looking flawless.

MAC Prep & Prime Highlighter in Light Boost
One of my favourite under eye concealers. This is yellow toned so helps counteract any redness and also brightens the face.

Laura Mercer Secret Camouflage in SC3
There is a reason this concealer is a makeup artists favourite. Covers anything and lasts for ages.

Guerlain Terracotta Moisturising Bronzing Powder in 00 Makeup Artist
I use bronzer all year round just to add some warmth to my skin. This one by Guerlain is great because its completely matte so looks much more natural and this is a very light shade, so perfect for the Winter months when your skin is paler.

Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot
As Sheer Glow doesn't have an overly dewy finish I sometimes won't even bother with powder but today I just used a little bit on my t-zone and chin.

Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar
I definitely have an obsession with these Milani Illuminating Face Powders. I used this as a blusher but you can use the shade Amber Nectar as a bronzer as well. I love the sheer colour and glow you get with these, amazing.


Eyeshadow Primer
Benefit Stay Don't Stray
Although this is a good eyeshadow primer, its ridiculously overpriced and the packaging is completely nonfunctional. 

MAC x 15 Warm Neutral Palette
For this look I used Creative Copper all over the lid, which is a beautiful gold colour. I then used Saddle which is a rich, warm, tan colour, in my crease and underneath my lower lash line. I have done a full review on this palette here but in summary its a beauty!

MAC Fluidline in Dipdown
Look at me cracking out the eyeliner ;) When it comes to liquid liner, less is definitely more. I also love using a brown colour as opposed to a black because it keeps things looking softer and more natural.

Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara
Like the L'oreal Miss Manga mascara, this has really grown on me the more I've used it. This is a fiber based mascara so really adds length to your lashes. The only thing with these fiber based mascaras is that they tend to flake by the end of the day and getting one of those fibers in your eye is a mother fucking pain!

Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Soft Brunette
The best, mine is running dangerously low!

Maybelline Brow Drama in Medium Brown
You know what, this is actually a pretty good brow gel. It's tinted so also adds a little bit of colour.


Jordana Easyliner for Lips in Tawny
Lipliner is one of those beauty products that gets a bad rep and I think Kim Mathers can single-handedly take the blame for that! I like to use a lip liner to make my lips appear a little more fuller and I also use them to fill in my whole lip. This means that when your lipstick wears off, your lips will still have some colour to them. 

MAC Pure Zen
This is a very pretty light peach colour but I cannot use this on its own without Tawny, as otherwise its just too pale for me. Concealer lips are a crime my friends.

I suppose I should get dressed now!


  1. I am in looove with the look of that Guerlain bronzer!! Definitely adding it to my wishlist! Also, you're eyes are stunning! You could wear any eyelook and rock it with those eyes!!

    1. Ahh thank you but trust me these are 2 ok pictures out of a gazillion terrible, cross eyed ones! ;)
