Daytime occasion makeup

So today I had a family lunch time meet up thingy so I wanted my makeup to look as if I had made an effort but still be fresh and suitable for daytime. These are the products that I used:
 Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation in no. 200 Soft Beige
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer (in I think Soft Beige, the label has worn off!)
Sleek Contour Kit in Light
Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in no. 001 Dark Brown
Seventeen Brow's That! Brow Kit
Barry M Blusher in Rose
Make Up Academy Eyeshadow Palette in Undress Me Too - colours used:
- All over lid: Reveal
- Crease: Tranquil
- Outer corner: Obsessed
- Inner corner: Shy
- Lash line: Corrupt
Seventeen SUPERlash! Mascara
Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara in Extreme Black
Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in no. 18 Violine Strass

And this is how my face turned out...

Some of these products such as the concealer and brow pencil are my absolute staples and will probably be used in every makeup look I do and I absolutely love this lipstick! It's just perfect for the upcoming autumn and I feel like it would also suit a lot of skin tones so I think its going to be a winner!

So that's it for this post. Let me know your thoughts in the comments and if you've used any of these products let me know how you got on with them and any tips or tricks you have :)

Take care 


  1. Asking the important question here... How do you keep your makeup on so nicely! And how do you put it on so well in the first place!

    1. Nicky! So I use as primer to help keep my make up on for longer and also using powder after foundation or concealer helps. As for putting it on, it's just a bit of trial and error really!

    2. Ok awesome any primer in particular? It's mainly my eye makeup that runs!

    3. I switch between Gosh Velvet Touch and Maybelline Baby Skin and they both seem to work well but then on my eyes I use a primer that came in a little NYC palette called Individual Eyes which I really like :)
