Friday's Face

I popped out to see a friend and decided to try out "Antiqued". I worried that it'd be really dark but I think it really brightens up my eyes. I even had a couple of random people stop me on the street to ask what eyeshadow I was wearing (!). I could have blended my eyebrow highlighter in a bit more but I kinda love it. I added a couple of clip-in hair extensions and curled my hair with my Babyliss Curling Wand. 

Last week, I got a sudden urge to find out what I would look like with a nose ring on. I've had my nose pierced for approximately 6 years now but I've never worn anything but a tiny stud in it. I've had a few funny looks from friends but I think I'm kind of digging it. I was bored and felt like a change, so why not? What do you think of it?

I'm on the fence about MAC's Face and Body foundation. I think it's way too sheer/ light for me and it's almost a step-up from a tinted moisturiser. It'll be great for the summer or for people who want very light coverage. I had to really pile on my Mineralize powder to feel like my skin looked even. Maybe I'll give it another go when my scars/ hyper pigmentation fade a little.

  2. Thanks for the post! Will try and get a sample of the face and body and mineralise foundation to see which one I prefer but will def be purchasing antiqued! It looks amazing on you! x

  3. Thanks so much! Samples are definitely the way to go before splashing out so much money on something you may not even like. I'd definitely get antiqued though.It's very versatile.
