Tempting FOTD

Today's "Face of the Day" consisted of a few products I haven't used in a very long time but I have to say I really like the results.

For foundation I used my NARS Sheer Glow in Sante Fe. This will be the third time i've ever used it considering I purchased it in December. I find this foundation really hard to describe. One word that sort of sums it up for me is "magical" (cheesy, I know). It blends in effortlessly, cutting down the application process and leaves a luminous glow. For those who suffer from dry/flaky skin like me this doesn't cling to it and I haven't needed to touch it up. Overall this gets two thumbs up from me!

Now onto the cheeks. For my contour I used Expresso by NYX. I found it best to use the tiniest amount as it's quite pigmented and just build it up. I'm also going to try using this as a blush. So we'll see how it compares with my skin tone. On lazy days I usually just apply a darker blush which adds colour to my cheeks but also contours at the same time. This could be one of those blushes.

Lastly the eyes. I started with Gleam by MAC on the first third of the lid and inner corner followed by a light dusting of Tempting on top. I was going to leave it at that but instead I added some Carbon to darken the crease. I finished the eyes with some fluidline and a slick of mascara.

Feel free to leave me a comment with your current shadow combinations. I'm always looking for new ideas :)
