FOTD #1: Precious Metals

Today was such a gorgeous day, the sun was shining.. it was even fairly warm, who'd have thought, eh? Especially after all the rubbish weather we've had here in the UK recently. Anyway, enough jabbering, and onto the point I'm  dilly dallying around! Now, because I'm a sucker for make up  it was such a lovely day, I was in the mood for a little play around with my cosmetics and this, my lovelies, was the result!

I started off by putting a pump of foundation onto the back of my hand then mixing in a small amount of Hocus Focus, a 'visual flaw-softening lotion' that can be used alone as a highlighter or mixed in with your moisturiser/foundation. I then dotted this all over my face and blended using the buffing brush. Next up I used Solar Powder to add a bit of shape to my face and followed it with a pop of colour to my cheekbones in the form of Rimmel's Santa Rose, a gorgeous pinky nude shade with a hint of corally shimmer.

My brows are really annoying me at the moment; one day I love them, the next I hate them. Today was the latter, so I put my no fuss routine into use by picking the medium brown shade from my brow kit to fill in any sparse areas. 

I wanted this look to be all about the eyes, so went for something a little more daring than my usual one shade slapdash kinda look. Using the MUA palette, I started off by using a pale pinky champagne colour all over my lid (top row fourth along) followed by a generous layering of a gorgeous gold shade(third along). To create a bit of dimension I then went on to use the copper in the palette (second along) in the outer third of my eye and through the socket line, blending as I went. I then went back over with the first shade I used to blend out a little more and tidy up any places I may have been a bit messy! To finish the eyes I curled my lashes and applied a couple of coats of my trusty L'Oreal Telescopic mascara.

If you know me, you'll know lipstick is my thang so I couldn't resist using this gorgeous corraly red colour from Vivo. Summer perfection! 

Et voila! There we have it! What do you think of this look? What are your picks this Spring?
