Face Of The Day


I've been giving powder foundation a try again because the NARS Tinted Moisturizer wasn't cutting it in terms of oil control during the day. A more in depth review to follow... but here's what else I wore today:


Face: Shiseido Sheer Mattifying Compact (shade B20), Dior Matte Bronzer (shade 02) discontinued, Burberry Light Glow in "Tangerine Blush" (so so so good)

Eyes: MAC Brulee eyeshadow all over the lid, Shroom in the inner corner, Burberry Midnight Brown in the crease and outer corner and as a liner, Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara

Lips: YSL Rouge Volupte #7 dabbed on quite sheer, MAC Bare Necessity Dazzleglass

I am going to do these posts more often in the coming weeks since I am determined to use up some stuff since I have been in a rut and forgot about some old favourites :)

Hope your week is going well!

  6. I've been getting into powder recently as well -- it's the humidity in Toronto that makes me so shiny!

  8. Your skin looks luminous in powder foundation. Summer is usually bad for oily skin. You look so pretty in the picture.

  10. Beautiful. Looking forward to more FOTDs.

    I am seriously lusting over Burberry products lately and my list keeps growing. Would you be able to do an overview of your Burberry products and how you like them so far. That would really help. <3

    1. I only own 3 things - 2 eyeshadows and 1 blush, and I LOVE them. the eyeshadows are amongst my favourite ever, and the blush is pretty high up there too... so finely milled and takes minimal effort to apply. I wish they had more shades :)

    2. Thanks Sandra, that did help! I'm trying to find Pale Barley now, but our department stores in Germany don't have it in stock yet. Fingers crossed, they'll get it soon! :)

  15. I used to have the same problem with NARS! MAC too! I actually got professional help though, I had it bad. So yeah, have you heard of Glymed? It's all-natural, I think you can order it online.
