TAG - How much is your face worth?

Hey guys! 
I've seen this tag a lot on the tinternet, and so I thought I'd jump on the band wagon, all be it a bit late. 

^Here is what my everyday make up looks like^
It's in a bit of an odd order? Ah well :) 
I've add pictures individually if there is already some on my blog, and/or to their product page.

1) E.L.F Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder £3.75:
I only use the blush of this, because I prefer a matte contour shade. I lightly sweep it on with a stippling brush, so I can easily build it up if need be.

2) Unbranded Concealer Palette from eBay £5.95:
I use the green shade on red areas of my face and the light yellow shade under my eyes, before applying foundation.

3) Sleek Face Contour Kit in Light £6.49:
I use the brown shade to contour my cheek bones with my stippling brush (which gives a good buildable amount of colour) and in my eye crease. I also occasionally use the highlight shade on my brow bone.

4) E.L.F Complexion Perfection Powder / Tone Correcting Powder £3.75 ish?:
I believe it's been renamed as Tone Correcting Powder? It looks like mine would now be associated as the 'light' shade and it looks like the price is a little different too to what I remember paying for it though, I guess I'll just have to go by their price! I use the yellow shade under my eyes and the green lightly on my chin, any concealer and a wee bit on my forehead.

5) FashionistA Brow Kit £7:
I use the light brown shade on the left with an ELF angled brush. On the odd occasion I'll use the dark brown on the right for the 'tails' of my brows if they are looking particularly sparse and the wax if they are a bit unruley.  

6) MUA Heaven and Earth Palette £4:
II tend to use the shade '6' (according to my blogpost here) all over the lid.

7) L'OrĂ©al True Match Foundation in £10.29:
I only use a tiny bit of this mixed with my Revlon Colourstay to make it match better... I was previously using Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation but ran out :( 

8) Revlon Colourstay Foundation for Normal/Dry Skin in  £12.49:
I use this with the other foundation.

9) Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair £4.19:
I use this as both a base and for more coverage where needed.

10) Rimmel Fix & Perfect Foundation Primer £6.99:
Really in love with this, although I'm so tempted to try the Nivea Hydration Primer though! 

11) Carmex Strawberry Lip Balm Tube £2:
I picked this up in Primark on a whim and I don't think my lips would last without it.

12) NYC High Definition Volume Mascara £3.99:
I wasn't too impressed with this, but the formula got a lot better and less clumpy, however it's gone a bit clumpy again. Luckily I've nearly finished it so I can try a new one. 

13) L'Oreal Superliner £6.49:
I love this and have recently bought my second one, yaaaay.

14) Revlon Grow Luscious Lash Liner £6.29:
Not quite sure if it's made my eyelashes grow? But it's a nice pencil.

15) 17 Solo Eyeshadow in Ivory Coast £3.89:
I use this to set my concealer from the lid to the brow.  

Now, for the total!
I am very pleased with that! I know I only really use 'drugstore' products, so it shouldn't be that bad anyway, I am very please :) Considering I've seen loads over the £100 mark! 

Hope you enjoyed this tag as much as I did. I tag you all to do it! (although you probably did it months ago!)

Halloween 2012!

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't posted in so long, I've been such a busy bee :)
This week I've been doing makeup for photos to be made into a calender for a Christmas present :) Don't know if I'll be able to post pictures of it yet! Ehehe.
Last night I went out for Halloween,  I wish I'd got a picture of my whole look, but I think my face is good enough! Ahaha.
I haven't got a good picture of my on my own, but I have of me with my boyfriend and a close up of my 'bullet wound'.

Here is the one with my boyfriend :) I got a lot of funny looks going to the pub like that! Ahaha/

Here is a close up of my 'wound' I used nose and scar wax, my Graftobian 'bruise' colour wheel, 'Noir' from my Au Naturel Sleek palette inside the wound to give more depth, gel blood from Gratobian and home made blood too (unfortunately the graftobian blood didn't dry properly so my hair got all in it in the wind, hence the weird lines!. Sorry the picture isn't the best quality! 

I hope you all enjoyed Halloween as much as I did!
