I thought I would be brave and show you my bare face today. It's really interesting to see how make-up can change your appearance. I'm not that bothered about my face with no make-up on; I have good skin, barely any spots and definitely lots of freckles! But despite this, I still wouldn't leave my house without a bit of foundation and mascara.
After my daily skin care routine (which I'll explain in another post), I start with a bare face and add some primer. I then blended two foundations for a heavier coverage, as I'm going out to dinner with my boyfriend after work and didn't want to touch up too much. The second photo shows my skin with foundation, concealer and powder. I use a yellow undertone/beige foundation which looks more natural as the day progresses. In the first image, you can see I have a natural flush or 'rosy' cheeks, but I still add blusher and contour as this evens everything out. I finish by adding a few shades from the Naked Palette, MAC lippy and my favourite mascara, Benefit They're Real.
