FOTD and "Go to" products!

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
Hi guys!

Today I decided to do a quick FOTD with my "Go to" products, my favorite basics of my make-up bag that I love to death & use almost every day.
I have a different t-shirt here from the other photos, but they were all taken on the same day!


So basically this is usually my everyday look, with a few variations depending whether its a more casual look or not. Sometimes I'll skip the eyeliner on the lower lid so my eye looks more "open" and natural.

My favorite eye shadow ever is by 17 and it's called Statuesque. It's a shimmery nude pink, and it seriously goes well with ANYTHING I wear, it's so versatile.
Today I decided to play around a bit with the eye shadow and made a bit of a smokey eye with some black and white eyeshadow from my Avon True Colour Eyeshadow Quad. I love using the white eyeshadow close to my tear ducts to create an illusion of brighter eyes and make them pop. I use a bit right under my brows, simply because I've run out of highlighter, it's quite a good substitute in times of need!

My favorite mascara up till now - and I'm always on the search for the next big thing! - is the LashBlast Volume by Covergirl. I ordered it from Ebay, as we don't have Covergirl in Portugal. I'm not sure if you can find it anywhere in the Uk, all I know is that it's a very affordable brand in the U.S. It cost me about 7 pounds. Loads of american bloggers swear by this mascara!

My favorite blush is the Benefit's Bella Bamba. It's supposed to be a 3 dimmensional pink, that's brightening, sculpting and defining - all I know is that I love this shade and also it smells so good! It's like watermelon on your cheeks, yum!

The foundation I've been using and am very happy with is by Revlon PhotoReady, is really does leave your skin flawless and airbrushed. I don't put too much on, as you can see by my pictures I like to let my freckles peep a bit through my make-up!
I always use my Erase Paste by Benefit under my eyes, as I have annoying dark circles! If you know of any miraculous concealer that works wonders on dark circles, feel free to share! It really is one of my only complaints about my complexion.

So here are my "Go to" products:

By the way, my lip colour was achieved by using Avon Ultra Colour Rich Lipstick - Satin in "Pout" followed by a thin coat of Avon Glazewear Sparkle lipgloss in "Cotton Candy".

Hope you enjoy lovelies! x
