The weather here in London was horrible today, rainy and windy. My umbrella ripped and then just broke haha!. I had no special plans today but in Iceland there is Konudagur which is a day where we celebrate women so it is kinda like wives day, but for example my dad used to buy something for me and my sister as well. It is kinda like celebrate the woman in your life.
In Iceland we don't traditionally celebrate Valentine's day but we have Bóndadagur (husband's day) and Konudagur (Wives's day), Valentine's day is actually in between these days. There is a long story about these days but basically the Konudagur marks the end of the month of Þorri. I am not going to go into Icelandic traditions but this all makes sense if you're Icelandic haha.
Anyway what I was trying to say, since it was Konudagur I wanted to do my makeup a little bit more than a normal Sunday and go out and buy myself something from Space NK. I actually bought the new foundation from Nars and a new eyeshadow duo. If I have time tomorrow I want to use them and take some pictures of both products :)
So here is everything I used today
I have been obsessed with the new Rimmel products, especially the Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer and the Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation. The primer is very long lasting. I have been using it for few weeks now and it is really good. I definitely feel like the foundation goes on more smoothly and lasts longer with the primer. The foundation is definitely medium coverage but it does look like your skin. The shade is a good match for my skin tone and I am in love with these two products.
My concealer is the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and my skin is bad right now so I need to cover my spots, for a highlight under my eyes I used MAC Prep+Prime highlighting pen, I have been using this daily and playing around with the whole v-shape highlight. To set everything I used Nars Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder and this powder is fast becoming my favorite setting powder.
I contoured with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, I will do a full review on this kit soon but I have to play around with it for a little bit longer. I used the middle bottom shade to contour and the top right as my highlighter. My blush is a new addition to my collection and that is MAC Warm Soul.
I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pompeii in Blonde and I am still looking for the best brush to apply this product. It is easy to use too much but when you get used to this product it is amazing,
On my eyes I used the Stila in the light palette. I love this palette, I used to have it couple of years ago and got rid of it but I ended up repurchase it. I have Kitten all over the lid with a mixture of both matte browns in the crease. I just think this palette has it all. My liner is the Seventeen Make your Mark and that is on my top lash line and on my waterline I have the Makeup Revolution Inner Brigthner which is a light peach shade that brightens up your eyes. My mascara is the YSL Volume Effect Faux Waterproof Mascara, it is still my current favorite.
On my lips I have the Revlon matte balm in Sultry, the Revlon matte balm are one of my favortie lip products ever.
That was my FOTD !
I am currently on the Makeup Geek website trying to pick out eye shadows to order, if you have any recommendations let me know, I currently have a list of 12 and I am only ordering 9 haha!
Hope you enjoyed this little post :)
