Hello my loves today I'm back and I thought what better way to kick things off than with a #FridayFaceOff - OK let's state the obvious it's not Friday, this was MEANT to be up on Friday but I was so exhausted I didn't manage to post it and  yesterday was the same.. so it's been a bit of a #weekendfail. Nevertheless I'm slowly on the mend and I'm beginning to feel a lot closer to myself than I have been in the last month.

Surprisingly my skin colour is a lot warmer than usual I don't really know how because I've had little sun exposure over the last month, I opted for Chantecaille's New Stick Foundation in Banana this is usually the perfect match for my Summer skin. I love the buildable coverage and the creamy consistency of this foundation. I also mixed in a little bit of MAC's Studio Sculpt in NC44 this was a major rediscovery, it used to be holy grail and was the only foundation I used for about 2/3 years - Think it's time to repurchase I'd forgotten how AHMAZING it is. In an attempt to  brighten up the darkness under my eyes I opted for the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Biscuit. I then set this with a bit of Ben Nye's Banana Powder (not photographed). For my cheeks I added a touch of MAC's Sunbasque Blusher another Summer favourite and a sweep of MAC's Wonder Woman Golden Lariat MSF on the top of my cheek bones for highlight. Lately I have been loving wearing matte brown eyeshadows with lashings of mascara - I've not been able to put down my Smashbox Full Exposure Palette it's got such fabulous neutral, matte tones which allows you to create a defined, soft smokey eye. My mascara of the moment which I'm loving is the new Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara I didn't think I would like it because it's has one of those spikey brushes that I never seem to get on with, surprisingly it works wonders at creating full, volumous lashes. Lips lately have been all about warm neutral tones, leaning more towards browns - I am loving the exaggerated 90's lip that Kylie Jenner has been rocking oh so well lately, it's gorgeous. I picked up two new lip products from the drugstore whilst picking up my medication! First up is Rimmel's Cappuccino Lip Liner it's a deep brown which is ideal for over lining the lips. Over this I have been using Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick in Mink which is a lovely coffee coloured lipstick with a semi glossy finish. It appears more pink in pictures but in reality it's the perfect shade of cafe au lait!


Please excuse my appearance in the pic, it took 1000000's of attempts to get a picture where I look somewhat human and even so, I don't think I do! I also just want to thank you all for being so supportive during my recent absence and thank you so much for all your well wishes. I have missed you all and hopefully it's up from here!

Hope you all have had a fabulous weekend, I'm working on some posts for you this week!
