Face Of The Day Friday! (FOTD...F ;)

Why not a face of the day for Fridays? I do have a weakness and indulge in makeup and I have fun doing it -  and I am sure you love creating in many ways with it like I do, too!  I personally feel like a geisha when I get my brushes all out,  and when I start to paint - I get into crazy meditation mode when I'm doing it, so it goes a lot deeper than face value I think :)

Here is a photo I threw on instagram and now I am craving some black/blue hair... I don't think I have the guts to do it! It's dark enough :)
Growing up, my friends used to think it was weird that I needed to go to another room to get ready or that I did my makeup before going out to see them, because I actually enjoyed that time alone. :) I think it dates back to when I had to get ready for live shows and it was that time to go over songs in my head and get in "the zone" that I still do it.

Yesterday, I posted "Nana" lipgloss and "Fast Ride" lipstick by NARS and I wanted to show that they are extremely wearable and not too in your face with the colour, and that is it quite a lovely duo with simple eyes.

Here is what I ended up putting together:

NARS Sheer Glow in FIJI

Benefit Boi-ing in 01 and 02

Jemma Kidd Makeup School: 03 Pawpaw
Contouring: Jemma Kidd Makeup School "Contour & Flush Creme Blush Duo"

BEST Highlight creme I've ever used in my whole life! Jemma Kidd: Dewy Glow All Over Radiance Creme in 01 Iced Gold (I would say I reach for this a hundred times more than Benefit High Beam, but both great products in different ways)

Eyelids primed with Benefit Lemon aid
NARS Bellissima Duo
Benefit highbrow
Benefit Eye Bright (in corners of eyes)
MAC Fluidline in Dipdown (Dark brown)
Benefit They're Real! Mascara 

NARS Fast Ride lipstick
NARS Nana Lipgloss

Necklace: Stella & Dot Tempest Bib Necklace (J'adore!)

Well, I hope you enjoyed this little quick post :)
