Faffing around face...

So I was meant to be doing some uni work today (Sunday - not sure when I'm gonna post this), but for once I'm kinda on track with it! Yay!  Also the snow distracts me =|, what's a girl to do?  I'll tell you what a girl does!  She watches a load of youtube videos!  Haha, today I watched Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup and her  Beauty PR Video - this is what my original job was, and after I've finished my Masters, I would like to get back in the industry on a larger scale - as well as the lovely Pixiwoo Priscilla Presley Video, and Lisa Eldridge's Clemence Poesy Video.  I then decided to playy about with my face - as I do when bored - using the Priscilla Video as a starting point.  Once you see the pics I'm sure you'll agree, it doesn't really look the same, a general occurrence on account of my skin tone I think.  
 Products Used:
L-R: the Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer, Dior Forever Foundation 031, Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 53, Mac Select Pressed Powder in NC35, Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder
I love the combination of the Dior and the Healthy Mix Serum, I didn't even need to use a concealer for this look!
L-R: the Balm Bahama Mama Bronzer, Dior Forever Foundation 031, Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in 53, Mac Select Pressed Powder in NC35, Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder
The powder products are my daily essentials - after foundation I use my Bobbi Brown Face Blender Brush to powder using the Mac Pressed Powder NC35, then apply a dusting of the Vichy Dermablend powder in the same way (this powder really perfects the skin, and gives it a healthy iridescence).  The Balm Bahama Mama is my favourite bronzer, it is completely matte, and can be built up from a light flush to a dark contour.
L-R: Fashionista Lipstick in Buff, 17 Mirror Shine Lipstick in Beehive
Always one annoying bit of hair over my face!
L-R: gloMinerals gloMetallic Smoky Eye Kit, gloMinerals gloCream eye liner in Ebony, Mac Smoking Eyes Palette
Used the lightest colour all over the lid from the glominerals palette, then the two darker glominerals shadow in my crease and outer third of the lid.  For extra depth I added the matte brown of the Mac palette, and lined with the glominerals cream eye line.
 L-R: Prestige Blush Contour Brush, Sigma F82, Bobbi Brown Face Blender Brush, No7 Eyeshadow Blend and Contour Brush, Bobbi Brown Eyeliner Brush. 
Hope you liked it!
Love A.x
